    Excellent spectacle. Acteurs très à l'écoute des spectateurs. Simple sans prise de tête et permet une bonne approche touristique de la culture MAORI.

    Expérience inoubliable

    Super soirée en compagnie des maories : explication de leur culture, de leurs jeux, du haka, découverte du Hangi (fait traditionnellement), chansons, dîner,... la soirée fut parfaite! Nous étions réticent au départ car peur de tomber dans une excursion "à touriste" : très belle découverte!

    Belle façon de découvrir la culture Maori

    Très belle expérience. Les activités sont superbes (prenez y part c'est top!). Certes c'est touristique mais le personnel est adorable, on apprend beaucoup sur la culture Maori, on s'amuse du début à la fin (même dans le bus!). Le hangi est très bien et à volonté!
