It was brilliant, a wonderful way to experience a bit of New Zealand culture.
Excellent evening, the Maori concert was great and this was a wonderful experience...would definitely recommend the evening to anyone. Our tour driver was wonderful and it was a really enjoyable evening.
The tour was very informative , we enjoyed the show , the staff were were very friendly and the meal was generous however not to our liking .
The Maori concert was a lot of fun. The meal was OK, but have had better. The Kiwi and Kea experience was excellent!
Loved seeing the kiwi's and the performance was neat ! We had plenty to eat as well
we had done this several years ago and this time i found it to be quite disappointing especially the food. there was not enough for the table of ten. i would recommend willow bank to anyone but unfortunately not the concert
The Maori performance was the best part. The dinner was average. I thought it was going to be a large group of people. The guide for the wildlife tour did not seem like he wanted to be there. And although you barely get to see Kiwi, you don't get any good pictures of them because you can't use a flash. The driver for the tours was excellent though.
Couldn't see much of the animals as it was dark. Concert was tops! They got everyone involved in the Maori dancing, haka experience.

This was totally not what we expected. We were the only 2 travellers on this tour, and although we joined a larger party at Willowbank, we were seated on our own for the dinner, which was not the Maori style dinner were expecting. The Maori concert, although authentic in parts, was performed in a plastic covered outbuilding, not a traditional setting, and consisted of very few performers. The only saving grace of this tour was the visit to the kiwi house after dark and the setting of live kiwi in an almost wild setting. We could not recommend this tour.
