Our Company Directors and lead Tour Guides are experienced University teachers. Drs Robyn Manuel (Te Rarawa and Ngāti Kahu tribes) and Kepa Morgan (Ngāti Pikiao, Ngāti Kahungungu and Ngai Tahu tribes) created Hike Bike Ako Waiheke Island in order to accurately and authentically share the island’s long and fascinating Māori story. In addition we deliberately offer a Māori tourism experience that leaves a very small environmental impact footprint on our pristine and precious Island.
The historical and educational content of our tours have been meticulously researched. And, as authentic Maori operators with direct ancestral links to the indigenous peoples who visited and lived in and around Waiheke Island for 100s of years, you get our distinct Maori perspective of historical events associated with this magical island.
