This is what Aussie bloke Rohan from Gosford had to say after taking the Poihakena Tour...

"Kotahi Tourism promises 'meaningful experiences' on their website, and the Poihakena Tour certainly provides that. The tour consists of a two hour guided walking tour of The Rocks, interwoven with stories of Maori in Sydney. These stories cover the period from 1793 to the present , but have a strong emphasis on the pre-1840 era. Even for those familiar with Sydney's Maori history, these stories are told with a passion that brings them to life. I would highly recommend the Poihakena Tour to both locals and visitors to Sydney who want to see a different side of the city and understand its past a little better. The walking part of the tour is not strenuous and would be suitable for most fitness levels, though being The Rocks there are a lot of stairs to navigate. I would definitely recommend this tour as a cost-effective way to see a wonderful part of Sydney, better understand Australia's complex history, and enjoy a meaningful tourist experience."
