Was a great evening and unlike a lot of other 'cultural' tours we really felt the passion of the performers and the food was home hungi cooked excellence. Was an educational and entertaining evening.

I was excited to see the Maori Village to learn more about their history and heritage. It was definitely a show, and somewhat too long in my opinion. Be careful when going to see the glow worms. The walk is on uneven ground and it is very dark as they take you around 9pm. They give you little flashlight, but only 1 per couple so it barely helped. It was just so-so overall in my opinion, don't think I would recommend to anyone.

We found this dinner and show to be well worth the money. The show was interesting and informative. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it!! The "MC" for the show was fun and kept things rolling along. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We would highly recommend this experience.

I hope the dances could be longer...and I appreciate greatly that meanings of tattoos are explained, plus the weapons and musical instruments. I understand that within an hour or so, it's not easy to include everything about the Maori culture and history. But I love the whole experience, starting from the host which is so charming and brilliant to greet all of us in our native language (12 languages) and ending with a stroll around the bush, looking at glowworms. The hangi may taste a bit bland but it didn't spoil the evening at all, in fact, I loved the food as it retained its natural flavours. I really loved the dances and songs, they are so powerful and terrifying and mesmerising. I also loved the Chief delivering all the explanations and demonstrations in a light-hearted way. Not to miss at all.
