Everyone is dressed in their native clothing, and are true to their culture. Our emcee for the evening spoke at least 10... More

Good job at showing the Maori culture in an entertaining and engaging way. We enjoyed the Hangi feast and was well prepared. A more authentic experience would be if the feast was in a more traditional meeting house rather than modern event tent. Overall a good night out at a reasonable price.

The Mitai Maori Village is an experience where you will see and learn about Maori culture. You will experience a very traditional hangi meal. There is the Warriors in a canoe a welcoming ceremony. While it is a "staged" activity it is informative and entertaining. If you went to a music concert, a stage show, opera, or even the ballet,... More

The night includes amazing cultural entertainment including dancing, singing and traditional Maori warrior traditions. After the entertainment, we were served a generous buffet of amazing food. The food was so delicious and definitely one of... More

What a wonderful evening was had. We were collected from our hotel and taken first to a local village and given a really informative tour by 'Shilo' who told us so much about how his family settled in the area oh so long ago. It was brilliant being shown around the village, looking at the hot pools and lands. One... More

My friend and I attended this on the 16 april 2017, this was the best money well spent if you as me, I have done the Tamaki experience but have to say this one is way better by far, I understand that both are a bussiness, however this one made you feel part of them. You were not rushed and... More
