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.

Loved the whole experience. It was a 10 out of 10. Great food, great walk through of Mauri history. It was like walking through a living museum
Wonderful evening - the driver who took us there was such fun and set the scene for what was a great evening - I would certainly recommend it to anyone.
Great fun. Cheeky without being tacky. Excellent introduction to Maori culture and people, and to be accepted as a friend of the Tamaki family.
This tour was excellent. We learnt about the Maori culture using a fascinating format. We saw Maori dance, songs, weaving, games, weapon making and general cultural experiences. We saw the hangi dinner being made and had our dinner at the village . Our driver had great experience and was very knowledgeable and passionate about his culture. I would recommend this tour.
The Maori dinner/performance was amazing. Great entertainment by the bus driver, I would highly recommend this whole experience. My boys just loved the interaction at the village itself. Gave you a good insight into the culture of the Maori people.
I would not hesitate to return and recommend this to others.
We spent a month touring Australia and New Zealand, and this was one of our very favorite excursions!
Highly recommend!!!!!! My partner and I want to go back to NZ but stay with the tribe for a night. They were so incredibly welcoming, the food was amazing, and we learnt a fair bit. One of the best things we did while in NZ.
Highlight of Rotorua, exceptional staff, quality of food and cultural activities.
such a professional slick performance, those involved are passionate and caring and it really shows. Food was good and plenty of it. We were not too keen on the alcoholic punch, didnt think it had any alcohol in it and was quite pricy. Apart from that this was certainly a highlight of our trip, the bus driver was an added extra - top marks to all :-
Fabulous bus driver named Mark! His Maori name has 56 letters...so, Mark! He is very entertaining and a fabulous linguist!
Went 5 years ago and felt this trip much better organised enabling you to see more displays. Food very good too. All staff extremely friendly and welcoming
We had a blast! The experience was very educational and entertaining. Our hosts were fantastic!!
We had a lovely evening at the Rotorua Maori Hangi Dinner and Performance. The Maori were gracious hosts who freely shared their culture with us. And on top of that, the dinner was delicious! I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone travelling in New Zealand.

What a wonderful experience, shared with 2 of my Adult children, we were willing well somewhat willing participants in different demonstrations, the information received about the culture and the way presented was great, loved the singing/dancing, the Hungi, fantastic food was well organised and presented, with such a large group there was plenty of food plus for all.
This was an extremely enjoyable evening. Driver and guides were extremely entertaining and engaging - I laughed so hard my ribs hurt! Food was tasty, and the insight into the culture was very valuable.
This is by far the best thing that I did in New Zealand. It is very cultural, taking you back in history when the first European settlers encountered the Maori. There are a lot of work shops and games to play before an excellent dance show with the 'Haka', then a grand dinner buffet. The Lamb here is by far the best that I have ever eaten.
Awesome experience highly recommended and a great performance and meal.
It was fabulous. Greatly enjoyed learning about the culture. Wonderful experience. Very delicious food. Great interaction between the villagers and the tourist. Very informative.
