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

This is a must if you want to learn about New Zealand's first people and their culture. We bought the ultimate combo and thought it to be excellent value for money. The cultural performance was great. I'm really glad we spent time here.

My family - 2 adults and 2 teenagers visited the Treaty grounds on a very rainy day in June. We didn't know what to expect but were delighted by our visit. We bought the Ultimate combo ticket which includes Entrance, the Guided Tour and Cultural performance, the cost was worth every dollar and children under 17 were free. What a... More

The cultural performance was outstanding. Absolutely excellent. Visited the treaty grounds in June 2014. Great place to visit if you like historical sites and cultural performances. Additional cost for the cultural performance, but it is worthwhile to get a piece of the NZ native Maori culture. The website is: http://www.waitangi.org.nz/tours-and-experiences/

an emotional experience felt by both my partner and myself largely due to the 'hair raising' performances by the cultural group........skilled, informative, vibrant and professional.......felt very proud of them and proud to be a kiwi at Waitangi.

We visited in April and decided to go on the guided tour and take in the cultural show. My partner was fortunate enough to be selected as the visiting Chief and was subjected to special treatment during the cultural performance that gave a light hearted run down of Maori customs and culture. The orator was simply awesome and stunningly talented.... More

I have been to a few things like this but this was one of the best I have been too. The rest of the grounds were stunning,... More
