"ARA Journeys is an amazing company to work with.  They made the process of digitalising our story of Te Winika easy and were attentive to detail, ensuring that the technology authentically told the story, as told by the hāpu. We were very pleased with the outcome and felt that the digitalisation  enhanced the story passed down from our tīpuna. They enabled us to share our story with our community and guests in a modern way giving them a better understanding about our culture and the history of Port Waikato. We can't wait to work with the team again!"
