About Cultural Guide In New Zealand
New Zealand has dynamic cultures. They also have a very different and unique culture due to their immense love for sports, adventures, and art. New Zealand has mainly the Maori people residing there who affect the language, culture and art practiced there. The European heritage of the other people living there also affects New Zealand’s culture greatly. Also, New Zealand’s location in the world is remote and for nearly hundreds of years the place was not so easy to reach.
New Zealand has a multicultural society and the people from various parts of the world are welcomed warmly. Racism is something which has very minimal existence in New Zealand as compared to other countries and thus many people from other countries migrate to settle down in New Zealand. Due to the remote location of New Zealand, the people here are self-reliant and do not depend on others for anything. They emphasize on natural environment and do their best to protect it from all situations.
The Maori culture has been very strong throughout the past in New Zealand. The Maori people had distinct tribes, arts, beliefs and way of living life. Role of family is highly valued in the Maori culture. There were gatherings during special occasions and the traditional values included sharing and living in a community. They have immense respect for their elders and family members. This was affected when the Europeans entered New Zealand which caused the New Zealanders to lose their lands, identities, and way of living as well. The Europeans brought along their own culture and working style in New Zealand. When New Zealand became an independent country it became all the more self-sufficient.
New Zealand is often regarded as a classless society since there is a lack of aristocracy and opportunities for the residents there. Also, for quite a long time there was no major difference between the rich and the poor people in the society. In the past few years the gap has widened and increased due to a lot of materialism. Things and goods are being continuously imported into New Zealand leaving no job opportunities for the people there. Artists and musicians struggle to make a living here since there are no platforms to acknowledge their talents. Now New Zealand has started various schemes for the promotion of these artists. New Zealand is soon coming into the picture as many Oscar winning movies such as ‘The Piano’ and high budget movies such as ‘Lord of the Rings’ have been shot here. Also, many award-winning famous writers are from New Zealand such as Katherine Mansfield, Maurice Gee and Austin Mitchell.
New Zealand has varied religions practiced here. Maoris have their traditional religion which is kind of pagan religion where number of different Gods are worshipped by the people. This religion only governed the lives, society and behavior of the people in New Zealand for many years. With the settlement of Europeans in New Zealand, Christianity crept in. More than half of the people in New Zealand started practicing Christianity and became Christians. There were various other Christian churches there such as Roman Catholic, Anglican, Presbyterians, Baptists, Mormons, Eastern Orthodox, and a few others came into existence.
Many people in New Zealand who did not follow Christianity adopted other religions such as Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Paganism. However, almost 30 percent of the people in New Zealand do not practice any religion at all.

Trip to New ZealandOur Trip to New Zealand was a well planned trip. We could customize as per our requirements. There was lot of positive support from the memorable vacations staff before the start of trip. I was very much pleased by the staff and had a satisfying hassle free booking experience. We had made all the necessary payment to our agent before the start of the trip. As we reached NZ, we started experiencing the problems, slowly, one after another, solely because of poor agent selection and lack of coordination between the staff here in india and the staff and third party members in new zealand. There were a lot of places where we faced hassles and we were literally asked to stand outside the queue since our payment was not properly done to the appropriate authorities there in NZ. 1) At the car rental office the payment was not done on time, we were stranded outside the queue and only after repeatedly calling our agent, the payment was made the the car rental office. 2) The same thing happened again and again at the south island car rental office, skytower sightseeing, gandola ride, and the glacier hot pools (inspite of continuous telephonic reassuring by the agents, that it wont happen again) . 3.) At Franz alpine retreat hotel, there was no breakfast available, although we had pre booked all our hotel rooms with complimentary breakfast. The same thing happened at our coromondel stay. At both these places we had to literally cook our own breakfast before we started our sightseeing. My biggest disappointment was that i had to face lot of hassles for no fault of mine. There was sheer incoordination between the agents.Because we faced so much hassles throughout our trip, the agents were kind enough to arrange a complimentary dinner for us at a good indian restaurant on the last day of our trip. Other than the above mentioned hassles, the trip was a well organised one. I enjoyed the trip and i thank memorable vacations for organising my trip. The hotel stays at queenstown, Milford cruise and auckland were the best part. My only request is to kindly improve upon your services specially the ones which i have mentioned so that other customers dont suffer. I would surely use your services for future international trips .

There were extraneous hiccups like Visa delay and flight problems ( due to Jet Air) but sorted out to our satisfaction. Thanks for that effort. Queenstown

Trip to New ZealandWe had planned a customized tour to New Zealand which was coordinated and well arranged by Hub Holidays and Travel Triangle. The purpose of this holiday was for our Honeymoon, Hub Holiday agent (Prashant) had appropriately suggested the itinerary making it more memorable. There were certain phases of our trip planning which required frequent follow ups from us, that can be better organised. Nevertheless throughout the trip we had continuous support from Prashant and Devarka, sorting out any hiccups. Thanks again !!
