Really wonderful and FUN! We enjoyed learning about the Maori culture and the setting was just beautiful. Food was very good and plentiful. We definitely recommend this!!
This is a very cultural display of the Maori people and their village. After a welcoming from the chief and other warriors we were shown around the village. At each stop one of the Maori people would explain and demonstrate a cultural aspect of their upbringing. E.g dancing,tattoos,games and traditional attire. This was followed by a lovely performance and a delicious hangi dinner. A must when visiting NZ.
This event is so well organised and good value for money, We were shown in a humorous way the life style of past and present Maoris and learnt their hopes for the future. the meal was tasty and plentiful. Highly recommend.
This was a really exciting adventure right from the very start when we were collected at our hotel and transported to the forest village by air conditioned coach and a driver who gave a good briefing about the place in a hilarious way. Organisation of the four tribes which arrived in buses was done very efficiently. Meaningful outline of Maori history and culture, and delicious, voluminous and relaxing hangi. Highly recommended. When booking I thought it was a bit on the expensive side, but it was worth it all. A must for anyone coming to Rotorua.
Extremely well organised, informative and good value for money.
A cultural experience that is a must when you visit New Zealand. Learned a lot about the Maori culture and really enjoyed the whole experience. Love the part when all the men were taught to do the Haka.
Great way to immerse yourself in Maori culture and traditions. Friendly, informative, fun and a great meal traditionally cooked. A must for the Rotorua visitor. The hotels in Rotorua do a version of this, but we wanted to do this one and were not disappointed.
A really good evening, very well organised, educational, very good food and some good laughs

Great experience, very well done.
Hungi was also very nice
Bus guide also kept you entertained
We really enjoyed being exposed to Maori culture and tradition through the Tamaki village Hangi dinner and performance. The experience starts out with the chiefs of each 'tribe' i.e. bus gaining acceptance into the Maori village through a traditional imitation dance which was our favorite. We had encountered this briefly at our time at Te Puia, but the experience was all the more mesmerizing in the village setting. The food was plentiful and buffet style so offered many options to guests, including my pregnant self. We had originally booked the 5:30 pm tour as the later tours were sold out, but was able to change to a later time on the day of the reservation at no extra cost. I highly recommend this tour for a glimpse at the history and culture of the Maori people. It is an experience that should not be missed. The entire experience took 3 hours.
