Did they change the name? If this is the MAORI TUPUNA presented by Vai Te Mihi, then this was for us even more interesting than the Moai Statues! These traditional dances full of passion, amazing costumes and beautiful people! It was our BEST & UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE on Easter Island, we have never seen something like this, totally worth the expensive... More

Lovely show, great location - in the main street. We bought the cheapest tickets (stands) and saw the show as well as the people that bought seats (chairs).

Well worth the price. Very entertaining and interactive with the crowd. Excellent dancers adorned with elaborate native attire. A fun night out on Rapa Nui for sure!

The show is nice, with enthousiastic dancers. But no explanation whatsoever is given, so one just has to guess what the dance and music is about. No way to know whether this is traditional, modern interpretation, ... Seating is a bit uncomfortable. If you book in advance, you are seated in the front row.

A great show with lots of flamboyant costumes and music. There are various dance performances and then some audience participation. CDs and DVDS of it are available if you want a souvenir. A really fun way to spend an evening!

Expect to be called up to join in the dance especially the front rows. great costumes. we had a no dinner show, although shows with dinner... More

We went to this show only because the Lonely Planet guide insisted a traditional dance show was a must do on the island and we really had no idea what to expect. What we got was an amazing hour of entertainment for $15. The music and dancing are delightful and engaging. The length of the show is just about right... More

Energetic and sensual! And it doesn't hurt that the dancers are pleasing to the eyes as well! ;p It is located at the main road in the town and cost about CLP15,000. Be there at least 30mins or an hour early to get the best seat.
