Well intended show but definetely not worth it, especially for the high price paid.
Too commercial, fake, overcrowded, and full of gaps to loose time. Not entertaining at all. We left before ending (and no money back).
This was largely a performance type set up, including songs, dances and of course a haka. Afterwards there was a hangi meal provided. The performance and food were good, but we weren’t expecting quite so many people there at once, so it didn’t feel to...More

Loved every part of this. It was really informative and an interesting and interactive way to learn about the Maori culture. Our guide was great, I'm useless with names but he had his tattoos on his left arm and represented a story from his mother's...More
My husband and our 1 year old attended the night experience! We had such a great time! I couldn’t fault this place. The tour and traditional songs were fantastic. So much so it had our 1 year old dancing along. The food was also out...More
