What does the Tu Tika name and emblem stand for?
Tu Tika literally means, Tu – to stand, and Tika – to be true, therefore, we stand true to everything we share with our guests, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sounds like an intriguing journey? You will come to see and hear the stories of the Māori have more drama, romance and adventure than any day time soap could ever dream up.
Our emblem – The koru round snail shape in middle of emblem represents new growth in our family as we embark on our journey with our pakihi, Tu Tika Tours & transfers. The seven waves on each side of the koru represent us and our five children riding the wave of this journey we call life.
To provide our guests with a truly authentic connection to us and our home through whanaungatanga – building relationships through shared experiences.
