Meet the Team
Our names are Claire and Annemieke Luiten. We are sisters-in-law, Northland locals and passionate about promoting Whangarei to the world! In 2014, Annemieke was working in the information centre café on the outskirts of Whangarei. She was surprised by the number of tourists who were travelling through with no intention of stopping in our wonderful city. Thus Pīwakawaka Tours was born!
Annemieke is the face of the business, running the tours and driving the shuttles, while Claire takes charge of communications and social media. Our ultimate goal is to promote Northland and support our local community. We will do this by providing visitors with access to the beautiful places in the Whangarei region. We can’t wait to meet you!
