Cannot rate highly enough
Everyone should do this. Lovely people and seeing the Haka and everything else. Cannot rate highly enough.
This is an awesome experience! It is nice to learn about the different cultures.
Excellent,totally enjoyed every part of the tour. My husband loved the meal stating its not often he goes back for seconds. Best part of our trip so far!!:
This tour was really great value.We are a mature age couple and the rest of the bus were backpackers so we had a great time.The cultural side of the evening was excellent but our bus driver 'Wallace' topped off the evening.He had the most friendly personality and was great entertainment from puck up to delivery to our front door.Don't miss a fabulous evening!
We really enjoyed this evening. The food was delicious! The cultural presentation was delightful. Not only were we taught about the Maori culture, but we were invited to participate in the activites. It was a memorable evening and we would do it again.
We are not 'tour people' but wanted to understand more Maori history after reading several books on indigenous people. The Hangi dinner and performance reviews were complimentary so we booked. The bus picked us up at our hotel right on time and was filled with friendly people. Our driver, Bill, was funny and informative. I was a bit dismayed when we arrived and assembled in the gathering area to see a large class of school children. They turned out to be an immersion class from a nearby town and they were delightful. It was so good to see the Maori culture being spread in the classroom and children of all backgrounds benefiting from the lessons. Once the dramatic welcome ceremony was complete and we entered the village we were treated to various stations that explained facets of Maori life and tradition. This was followed by a wonderful entertainment session and then dinner. I learned quite a bit that had not been explained in our initial research. Keeping the Maori culture alive for Maori descendants, and for the country is important and this group has found an excellent way to do that. It was a very entertaining and worthwhile evening. Our bus trip back to the various hotels was filled with group singing and a version of The wheels on the bus we won't soon forget! As we reviewed our New Zealand trip, the Hangi Dinner was one of the top highlights. If you are mobility challenged this is a do-able event but could be difficult...but do try. So worth it!
This a must if you want to understand the Maori people. The evening is full of interaction with the natives, understanding their culture, and presented with a series of dances prior to a dinner. The dinner was a feast which they made sure everyone was more of a pig than the one we ate. AWESOME!
I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing the culture of the Maori people. The meal was fantastic too
My Husband and I were on our honeymoon and wanted to see some of the Maori cutlure and this was spot on! Great dinner! Great entertainment. Very happy we did this. Definitely would recommend.
This was excellent! Very much worth doing if you are going to Rotorua. Thoroughly enjoyed and the food was great!
I loved this trip. It was very well conducted and the food was great. The village and all the activities were very well done. This was very slickly run.
I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Rotorua.
We enjoyed to learn Moari culture, traditions and performance. How tasty Traditional feast was!! two wonderful guides helped with written notes for us
AMAZING experience with AMAZING people, this is a must do in Rotorua.
Mesmerising performances. I think it and #39;s a must do in Rotorua. The dinner was awesome too. Volunteer to be the chief of the tribe. You will enjoy it. A wonderful experience.
It will give you some knowledge of Maori culture and the way they lived in the past.
And the Hangi meal...sooo god and different.
A wonderful and informative evening . We had the best night everything was perfect highly recommend this tour.
An amazing experience. Wonderful insight into the Maori customs. They were very friendly and after showing us around their village, and doing the haka dance, they provided us with the most amazing dinner that they cooked underground. Definitely an experience not to be missed.
Thank you Mark for a totally memorable experience.
From bus pickup to bus dropoff.
Loved the show. Loved the food. Loved it all.
This hangi dinner and performance was excellent. Transportation showed up when promised, and events occurred as scheduled. The careful explanation of the Maori welcome/greeting was excellent. The information about Maori life and culture was also terrific, and very authentic. The performances and the tattoos were outstanding.
We attended another performance in Rotorura and while it was good, the experience was far superior.
