Walk with the Maui's of Easter Island

In this activity, we’ll visit an archaeological site called Tahai, located on the coast of Hanga Roa town on Easter Island. People can expect to see the famous Moai statues standing in their Ahu (ceremonial platforms), along with caves, ancient houses and classical Rapanui architecture. The main reason why I think this place is perfect for an online experience is that it has most of the important elements that represent our culture all together in this place alone.You will be able to see:

Description

Drop anchor on the coast of Hanga Roa town in Easter Island and visit the Tahai archaeological site on this live-streamed online experience. 

On our watchlist are exciting places like the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Rapa Nui, Hare Moa chicken houses, Ana Tahai cave which was used as shelter by elite families; the Hare Ma’ea and Hare Paenga houses. I will also be taking you to Dr William Mulloy’s final resting place and tell you why he is a celebrated icon here. Before we bring the curtains down, I will show you the three important 'Ahu's' with the seven Moai's. I will tell you more about our heritage, culture and the significance of Ahu's and Moai's on our tour.

I have been an active tour guide for the last 4 years and have been related to tourism my whole life. I descend from a traditional family considered to be at the centre of the original Rapa Nui traditions and ancient knowledge in modern times. We are descendants of the first ruler of our culture, king Hotu Matu’a, he lived 33 generations before mine. 

I am also a professional audiovisual producer, and lead musician in a cultural music group called Puku Rangi Tea. We have represented our culture in different international music and art festivals.

Tour Reviews
  • Brent Becker

    This is our fourth family virtual tour with TourHQ and we really enjoyed it. The host's knowledge of the history of the Island and experience in narrating a tour was exceptional. It was great to be on location to see and hear about a place far far away. Well done.
