Excellent experience. We took the full tour which is highly recommended - the speakers were very engaging and entertaining while also very accessible with describing their topics. The dinner was a great opportunity to try a full meal of traditional Cook Islands dishes, which will be a highlight for anyone who likes to explore food. The music/dancing/theatre was also high quality and beautifully staged. The whole experience provided a fantastic context for understanding the Cook Islands way of life during our stay.
This show is a must for all .meal included which was excellent ..all guess we're seat to see show which was so amazing I had the most enjoyable evening highly recommend ..the service was of the highest making sure everyone was comfortable had drinks arranging chairs and front seating so everyone one there could see the show .
