Well worth the Visit!

This was a great experience and I learned a lot of very interesting facts about the Maori Culture. I felt the whole experience was made even more special knowing that all participants in the story telling, performances and show were all related. I would highly recommend this experience and they food was plentiful and delicious!

Tamaki Maori Village was an amazing experience, they do a great job introducing you to their culture in an interactive and fun way. The Hangi meal was great, and the people SO friendly and kind. Would 100% recommend this to anyone coming through Rotorua, take your time to speak with the family - they have great knowledge and are happy to share stories :)
