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.
Muito bom, mas o local onde os Maori viviam é fabricada, não é original, mas dá para imaginar como seria a original. Jantar bom.
Great experience, enjoyed every minute and well worth the price. Dennis even made the bus ride enjoyable, we all had fun.
We loved everything about it. Food, dance and the tour and the busdriver was all good, very good! Loved it.
This tour was fantastic from the pick up to the drop off! We missed our bus, got the time wrong, I phoned and they quickly sent the bus back to get us. The driver was Dennis Dennis the menace and he was hilarious. He gave us informative information on the way as well as humour and songs. Once we arrived we were met by very friendly hosts, which lasted the whole night. The tour was very informative, engaging and the Hangi was delicious. The ride home was just as funny as the ride there. Definitely recommend this tour. We will be bringing our family back for sure. Loved the cultural experience. Thank you to all involved
Fantastic evening. Very friendly and welcoming. Buffet Hangi meal mostly gluten free.
What an amazing leaning experience for a Grandma and three grandchildren. Pick up from accommodation was perfect for us drive was exceptional and fully of knowledge. Going home to Australia with a greater knowledge of the Maori people, their culture, traditions and customs. Rated this tour Fantastic it's a definite destination place.
Tamaki Cultural tour was amazing! It's great to know about the Maori culture and learn a few Maori words. Irikau is the best tour/bus driver ever! Made us feel welcome. From the bus ride to the village to the bus ride back to the hotel Irikau made sure we were enjoying ourselves. Food is great too!
We had an absolutely amazing time. The Hangi Dinner was good, a little on the plain side but filling and fun sitting with other guest. Entertainment was pretty funny. The Maori people were incredibly talented and proud of their heritage and willing to share it with us. I learned a lot about their culture and New Zealand. I was an honorary chief of our tribe so that was a lot of fun as well.
Our bus driver for our canoe was a real hoot! He had us laughing all through the trip to the cultural center and back to our hotel.
A great experience and well worth the price. Highly recommend.
What an amazing evening we had, our overseas cousins thought it was the best thing they had ever seen. The fact we could get involved in the activities made it even better. Very professional and well organised show.
Excellent evening out. Picked up from our motel on time. Pleasant drive to the dinner, warmly greeted and the food was outstanding. The gift shop had been picked over by the time we got to it. Taken back to our motel on time.
Excellent tour and from what I was told it is the best Maori village to visit. I was chosen as one of the visiting chiefs. I really wanted to sit back and enjoy the Maori immersion instead, but I tell you what it was pretty cool being the chief. If you can be respectful to their heritage and follow some basic rules consider asking to be a chief. By the way it helps if you can sing.
Really great! Took UK visitors I live here and we all thoroughly enjoyed. Lots of interactions, explanations, good food and good wine. Suitable for all ages.
Well worth it. Great food, fun bus driver, informative and entertaining.
This was tied for the best activity on our trip. The dinner was fabulous! I was chosen as one of the chiefs which was a lot of fun. It was a great introduction to the Maori culture. Wouldn't miss it!
