We did the 'beauty by night' tour including the traditional hangi dinner. This included the meal, a cultural performance, a glow-worm grotto tour, and a nighttime visit to see kiwis (being raised there, not in the wild). The beginning of the program was very cheesy/hokey and we thought we were in for a bad night, but things really perked up and the night was interesting, educational, and fun. Couple of bad things. They had our reservation incorrect and were not going to give us the glowworm and kiwi part of the tour, until we showed them our voucher that specifically said so on it. Also, the food, while plentiful, was not very tasty and definitely not great for vegetarians. However, these were small problems and did not affect our overall enjoyment of the experience.
