We really enjoyed this experience. You have to accept that it is showing you how native tribes lived years ago and not how it is now. Therefore it is a staged event. We started by being split into groups and rotating through several stations each of which showed a different aspect of Maori life. Then a performance of songs, stick throwing etc. The dancing and singing were excellent with great harmonies. It ended with a Haka. Then a meal of chicken, lamb, lots of local veg. Food at large events can be poor but this was good. Coach drivers and hosts ended with singing. Overall an excellent and enjoyable experience.

This was an excellent introduction to the culture and traditions of the Maori. Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Food was much better than expected and plentiful. Tutorials and demonstrations were fun and informative
Highly recommend

In January we were treated to visit to Tamaki Maori Village. Great interaction between guides and visitors throughout the evening followed by a great meal.

The shows were not good and the dining food was not good. They had 4 shows, but none of them were good. You won't have time to take photos. It was so rush. Too too too many people in a tour. They looked at the profits only!!! Choose the show in Te Puia or Mitai Maori Village.

So glad we did this - good to learn something of the Maori heritage in NZ. It's probably a bit saccharine and one-sided but actually those involved were clearly passionate about what they do and intent on giving us a good time. It's an evening well spent and would recommend it to anyone.
