Tino Pai Staff
Messina Carl - Director
My name is Messina Carl and I am the Founding Director of Tino Pai Tours (Tino Pai meaning - The best). I am an indigenous Maori as well as New Zealand European.
I have created Tino Pai Tours to offer a great tour experience seeing our popular destinations as well as exploring some of New Zealand best kept hidden secrets.
Tino Pai Tours are unique in that it shares some of the Māori culture with our International visitors, as well as learning about all the interesting cultures that come to New Zealand.
Guests will get to learn something Māori during the tour and take away memories of the wonderful culture we have to share.
My previous role as International Homestay Coordinator at the University of Waikato has given me the skills and experience of working with our young adults, understanding their needs and providing a tour that ensures their safety from beginning to end.
