THE SHORT STORY OF OUR FAMILY BUSINESS

MDA Group (including MDA Experiences, Mountain Bike Rotorua, Mountain Bike Rotorua Shuttles, Black House Events, Crankworx and TCSP) is owned and operated by brothers Takurua and Tuhua Mutu. First started in 1989 (then named Priceless Experiences) MDA Group has accumulated a depth of knowledge and experience that have led it to become industry leaders in Tourism and Events.

 

The MDA Experiences whanau (family) is one that was born from an ethos of ensuring that every experience is always about people. Our professional and personable crew follow traditional Maori values of Kaitiakitanga (guardians of place and people), Manaakitanga (building integrity and strength in each other), Whanaungatanga (creating lasting relationships with all those whose paths we cross) and Kotahitanga (coming together and moving forward as one).

 

Our strong focus on values, Maori culture and putting the people first has seen the MDA Group grow into the preferred choice for those seeking bespoke, professional and genuine services.

OUR GUIDING VALUES

Kaitiakitanga - guardians of place and people.

Manaakitanga – building integrity and strength in each other.

Whanaungatanga - creating lasting relationships with all those whose paths we cross.

Kotahitanga - coming together and moving forward as one.

 

OUR MISSION

We will always focus on safety first and not compromise this for any reason.

We are committed to keeping people at forefront of mind to ensure that every experience with us is high-quality and conducted in a professional manner.

We operate with a social conscious which includes and working environment that takes in the core values of Kotahitanga, Manaakitanga, Kaitiakitanga and Whanaungatanga.

We strive to positively impact our environment while enjoying its resources by continuing to operate a sustainable and responsible business.
