There is so much to see and experience at Te Puia – boiling mud pools, spectacular geysers, Maori weaving and carving. This is a fascinating and diverse look into the Maori culture and the region. Be sure to include the cultural performance and make the most of your visit to Te Puia.
The Maori presentation was so interesting. We loved the songs performed and we were excited to see the Haka and the poi ball dance.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly - we were able to see the geyser, the hot mud pools, the weaving school, the carving school and the kiwi birds. Such a fascinating area!
I don't think you can go to New Zealand without seeing Rotorua. And Rotorua did not disappoint, particularly the cultural performance which was outstanding. A definite tour for all visitors
What an amazing place. The guided tour was fantastic and very informative - a pity the kiwi was asleep!! The Maori Cultural Experience is a must. Excellent introduction to the Maori culture and the stick passing was captivating.
We enjoyed walking around and seeing the thermal pools and watching the geyser. We didn't do the Cultural Performance because we were going to another one that evening. What wasn't clear from the booking information was that this is a voucher which you can use at any point during the day while Te Puia is open for general admittance. Without the performance, it was a couple of hours walking around and a gift shop.
A joint trip to Taupo , Huka Falls and Rotorua is what I would highly recommend
It is a first rate Nature Experience
Maori culture experience is at its best at Auckland Museum
