This is definitely a tour not to miss. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and welcoming. We enjoyed the novelty of choosing our food to be cooked in the steam box and eating it whilst overlooking the geysers. We learned a lot about the history and traditions of New Zealand.
A definite place to visit when you visit this shows how people have been cooking for thousands of years and can do so in the future
Actually i don't expect so good! the steam lunch box is highly recommended to try! Taste amazing!
A brilliant tour very informative and an interesting and excellent steambox lunch!
Very interesting tour, tasty food. Gift shop also well worth a look. I allowed myself more time at Te Puia to do the hike around the outside and I was glad I had.
They dont get much better!
We arrived late due to delays in our hire car and the Puia Maori centre couldn't have been more helpful. The centre is amazing with loads to see and do and the guides were delightful. The steam box lunch was 'unusual' but good fun and we were made to feel very special as it was only available to a limited number of guests. One not to be missed!
When I went up to the booth at the entrance to Te Puia Maori arts and Crafts Institute, I was thinking that I was going to have to do some explaining... I said, "I have a small group..." and immediately Carla spoke up and said "And I will be showing your around today". And she proceeded to come out introduce heresulf, ask the names of each of the eight of us, and describe the time we would be spending together. She was charming, knowledgeable, proud of her culture, and eager to share it with us. The steambox lunch was excellent...and the hands on lessons, up close look at carving, and her ability to weave in her family history were excellent. We had dubbed ourselves the "Kiwi Wannabes"...and the welcome of Carla to Te Puia is one of the reasons we enjoyed the Kiwi and Maori experience so much. have to say also that we ventured into questions of discrimination, earning a living in New Zealand and more...and carla had the thoughtful and incisive answers we sought. Make this a "must" as you visit Rotorua...
