Perfect for the whole family

Tamaki Maori Village was an incredible journey into their culture. We were mesmerised and entertained. They were friendly informative and interactive. Everyone was happy to accommodate to my kids questions and photo opportunities. The Hangi dinner was delicious and a great opportunity to chat with other tourists for the next exciting experience in Rotorua. Our experience was fun from the moment we boarded the bus transfer and the sing-a-long on the journey home ended our evening beautifully.

Amazing

This was an amazing experience. We learnt a lot about the Maori culture. The welcoming ceremony was excellent and so was the food.

Maori cultural dinner delight!

Worth every penny. Fabulous and well crafted cultural experience that teaches you about New Zealand First Nations life and history, entertains you with story, song and dance then finishes with a delicious ground-cooked Hangi dinner. Top it all off with friendly people and a top knotch entertaining bus ride home. Be prepared to go outside your comfort zone to get even more out if this experience.
