“False advertising”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Kiwis beware - entry to the Treaty Grounds is NOT free for NZ residents. I visited last week with three of my family, we all showed our NZ ID as required, and were simply told "that will be $40". So much for the "suggested donation" as stated on the brochure and website.

“Excellent way to spend a day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

We are not usually drawn to such guided visitor sites, but the guide here was really good and the Maori entertainment troupe were (to use an overused Kiwi phrase) awesome! A real taste of the history of New Zealand, delivered with great harmonies and humour. Beautiful grounds and views of the Bay.

“Unexpected Highlight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We had poor weather and decided to visit and even the rain didn't dampen the experience. Bought the combo ticket that included the Cultural Performance it was definitely the way to see the estate. The performance was excellent, so much energy and passion. Usually skip these performances since too often they lack enthusiasm, not the case with these performers.

I decided to take the combo and go on the guided tour and partake in the cultural experience and boy am I glad I did. Our tour guide was so passionate and knowledgeable and the Maori singers and dancers were just brilliant!!! Would definitely recommend!!!
