Tamaki Maori Village experience was wonderful!

We had a wonderful evening. Very knowledgeable and fun Maori family. We also loved "Dennis the Menace" who made our drives there and back not only educational but entertaining, while the formal opening ceremony, visit to the village, the 'show' and the dinner were wonderful, so were the folks who sang for us after dinner and on the bus ride home! We are still talking about how wonderful the experience was two days later! Thank you!
