Great Experience. Our group did the night tour and we all enjoyed the tour very much. It’s a very touristy affair but I guess this is as close a Maori experience as one can expect these days. Very informative and fun villagers, great performance and entertaining bus drivers. The feast at the end of the show is incredible.
Absolutely loved this experience. Out of everything I’ve done in New Zealand this was by far the highlight of my trip. It was fascinating with many different aspects to jam pack the experience. Highly recommend
