ll The Tamaki Hikoi
For hundreds of years, Maori from the local Ngati Whatua tribe have passed down, from generation to generation, sacred tribal history, traditions and ancient stories.
Guides from the Ngati Whatua tribe re-tell these ancient stories on the “Tamaki Hikoi” walking tours through Auckland.
During these journeys you will explore Maori culture and heritage and learn why Tamaki (Auckland) was so fiercely fought over, how the tribe co-existed with the land and the impact of colonisation on the indigenous people.
ll Prince Davis
Prince Davis, Tamaki Hikoi's main guide, has been a part of the Tamaki Hikoi family since it began in 2004.
Prince's ability to share his culture and connect visitors to his tribal land is unique to his own style of delivery. Prince is also a tutor of his tribal performing group Te Puru o Tamaki.
During each tour visitors will enjoy Prince's ability to link Maori performing arts to the natural and urban environments. Princes humour and wealth of knowledge has many of our visitors wishing they had more time to spend on a Tamaki Hikoi tour.
