Rotorua Maori Hangi Dinner and Performance

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    After hotel pickup, you’ll travel by air-conditioned coach to Tamaki Maori Village, situated deep within the forest about 15 minutes from Rotorua. En route, your guide prepares you with information in anticipation of an authentic Maori hangi dinner, and shares protocol for visiting your indigenous hosts at the marae.

    Hear an eerie cry of welcome before you enter, and experience the powhiri (welcome ceremony) by a proud descendent of New Zealand’s ancient warriors. Pass crackling open fires and traditional whare (houses), and listen to classic instruments as you observe a re-enactment of daily activities and traditional arts and crafts typical of a pre-European Maori village. 

    In the wharenui (meeting house), see haka song and dance in a powerful performance by a Rangiatea cultural  group. When it’s time for the hangi feast, dig into slow-cooked meat and vegetables roasted in underground earthen ovens. 

    Your 3.5-hour tour ends drop-off at your hotel in Rotorua.

    A wonderful experience from start to finish. The entertainment and the food were definitely highlights, but for me the most interesting thing was seeing how the ancient Maōri culture has been preserved by taking advantage of (rather than fighting against) modern technologies
