It was a spontaneous decision to visit Whakarewarewa but we didn't regret it. We participated in a very interesting guided tour and learnt a lot about the village, where people are really living, the culture of the Maori and how the Maori people are using the thermal activities in the village to cook, bath and heal.
After the tour we had time to get a look in the different houses and shops of the village. After that we visited the cultural show in which people of the village danced and sang in Maori-style. This was very impressive.
A bonus of the village are the two geysers near the village that you can look at from a plattform.
