Learned so much about the culture and the country. Beautiful experience
Excellent tour with Maori culture and history. Enjoyed the cultural show. Geysers and mudpools were also very interesting.
Thoroughly enjoyed this very professional show and the Geyser performed for us so a great day was hadby us and our overseas visitors.
An absolute must, very beautiful walk around the mud pools and geysers, very good performers
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 loved the Cultural performance in particular. make sure you do the Combo, not just a visit to the mud pools and geysers which are also interesting. We also got a good look at the kiwi.
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

The park was a bit Disney like with the geysers and mud pools fenced in and paved walkways. We did the free 1 tour that includes the carving and weaving schools which was worth doing. The show was enjoyable but maybe 300 people in the room. Get seats on the end of the row or at the front to take good pictures.
My worst day in New Zealand. I felt as the place was a rip-off. I went to a cultural performance before and here in Te Puia I didn't feel the energy. The whole place was overcrowded. Te Puia isn't authentic and the history was missing. Interesting were the woodcarving and weaving demonstration, the guided walk and the geothermal valley. I am sure there are better Maori cultural experiences around Rotorua.
