Mõhio Tours specialise in providing a range of contemporary tours in Auckland, aimed at providing an alternative to mainstream mass tourism products. We offer small group day tours, (maximum 8 clients), as well as a wide range of customised private tours for individuals and groups. If you want something different from the norm, we will create a unique experience that suits your style, time constraints and personal interests.
We are dedicated to opening Auckland up to visitors. Whether you want a small group sightseeing tour that initiates you into the beauty and significance of Maori culture on the whenua (land) where the links and connections are tangible, or a private contemporary art tour meeting artists and seeing the latest exhibitions in private galleries, or maybe a city-focused tour taking you to some of the places that stylish Aucklanders frequent such as great espresso cafés, trendy back street boutiques, artists workshops, hidden inner city parks – the kinds of places where locals 'in-the-know' choose to spend their time and money...
On a Mõhio Tour you will also have the opportunity to experience contemporary Maori culture, to see that it is alive, relevant and evolving. To learn how we incorporate traditional culture and protocols into our lives as Maori living in 21st century urban environments, and to see how New Zealander's embrace Maori culture as an integral part of our 'Kiwi' way of life.
Mõhio Tours take you to our favourite local places so you can gain an insider's perspective to NZ's biggest and most culturally enriched city. All our tours have been carefully created to reflect a 'slice of life', and although we take care to make them accessible and understood by people with no local knowledge, they are not your average manufactured for tourists' kind of tour!
Our company operates under the kaupapa, or guiding principles, of 'Manaakitanga' – hosting visitors to the highest possible level, 'He Tangata' – commitment to uplifting our own people, and 'Kaitiakitanga' – looking after the environment.
Mõhio Tours – specialists in contemporary tourism experiences, interactions and Auckland sightseeing with an indigenous twist.
