A great afternoon trip and very beautiful. The whole place is well maintained and set out with very frendly staff. Take the family and your frends, its also very informative if you want to browse all the history and quite inexpensive for what you get for your money.

We were SO glad we went to the cultural performance, it was of an outstanding quality, level of professionalism and entertainment, it was informative, very very funny, high energy, and had us on the edge of our seat. Wow, we were really impressed by the dancers and their expressions, the singing and music, the grounds, and the building. The rainforest... More

All New Zealanders should visit Waitangi. Standing and looking out over the Bay of Islands and across to Russell is an amazing view. You can see why the area was so attractive in regard to settlement for both Maori and Pakeha. The tour guides were knowledgeable and entertaining. The place is looking good - well maintained.

We only had a limited time so decided to watch the Cultural Show. It was fab and gave us an insight into Maori culture. If you only have limited time do this event!

What a great way to learn the history of a country and it's people! Right where it took place! I loved the fact that it wasn't the commercialised production others attractions perform. Everyone from the girl at the front when we walked in, to the last person we saw before we left were friendly, welcoming and were able to answer... More

Even for jaded kiwis who think they've seen it all, this was worth doing. Very enjoyable cultural performance and the Treaty Grounds are beautiful, not to mention historical. A place every New Zealander should visit.

There is an entry fee plus extra for a tour & cultural experience (now sold separately). For me, if you pay the entry, then pay for a tour ... the cultural experience is only an extra ten bucks and well worth it. Our tour guide John, was awesome. I had looked up the cultural experience online prior to going and... More

The visit here was superb. Make sure you take in the Cultural Show. Great entertainment and a good intro to Maori Culture. The other exhibits are well laid out and the walks through the grounds are really good.

We were charmed from the moment we arrived and walked from the car park by the friendly and helpful greeting and welcome. Inside it was carefully explained what the choices were and we were completely delighted that we chose to attend the cultural performance. It was a great show and the timing of each section was perfect. Just long enough... More
