Fantastic experience

Thanks. We had a fantastic day. The ceremonies were so entertaining. It was great to have the Māori culture and history explained to us on the guided tour. We finished the day off with a hangi. Solly our Māori expert was great. I’d recommend this day to everyone visiting this area. IT’S A MUST DO!!
