Manea Footprints of Kupe - Unforgettable

Phenomenal, our guide Shane should be super proud of the knowledge and passion he presents this experience with. A must do know matter what your nationality or age. 20 years in the planning and I hope all involved throughout the journey are honoured with the outcome. We thank you for this unforgettable experience.

Awesome experience

Perfect way to reboot my curiosity and learning about this great navigator. Highlight for me was the storytelling by our fab host and guide. 4D show was outstanding and unlike any other I’ve been to. Loved the way the story was kept simple for me to retain main points! So important that we know this I wish all of NZ could experience this. Keep up the good mahi and thank you

Manea Footprints of Kupe

An authentic experience that brought to life ancestral knowledge and wisdom delivered by direct descendants passed on from generation to generation. This is my third time going and I'd go again and again.
