The visit started with a guided tour which was informal, anecdotal but enthusiastic and interesting. The Maori show was good and wandering around the village was interesting. Definitely worth a visit! more »
Love the Maori performance. Very genuine and entertaining. Lots of laugh. And their vocals are amazing. The guided tour of the village is also very educational. Our guide Micheal is also very amusing guy. Highly recommended!
Excellent New Zealand experience!! The tour was funny, informative and giving a detailed image of the Maori way of life! The performance was excellent too. We did a nice walk through the geothermal park and had excellent views on the big geysers. Would recommend!
