Ngā mihi Whakarewarewa Team
Kia Ora Christiane, First of all, thank you so much for taking the time to visit us on your New Zealand adventure - we really appreciate you choosing to visit us. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us, we pride ourselves in providing an excellent experience for our manuhiri (guests) so thank you for your feedback!

Kia ora Silvia, Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. We are sorry you found it was too expensive. Our Cultural Experience (which includes the concert and tour, and all day access to our village, including all the nature trails and geothermal activity), our pricing is on a par, (if not lower than) similar-type experiences in the area. For us, Whakarewarewa, The Living Maori Village, we love giving our manuhiri (visitors) the opportunity to experience a diverse range of geothermal wonders and real Maori lifestyle in one place, something extremely unique in New Zealand and the world. As above, we get fantastic reviews and positive feedback on this authentic experience: One which offers a peek into real life in a Maori Village. It's a shame you feel this way, we'd welcome you one day in the future to perhaps alter your perceptions. Ngā mihi Whakarewarewa Team
Tena Koe Juliane, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Our guides here are very passionate and their knowledge is immense and they take great pride in sharing this with our manuhiri like yourself. Thank you for choosing to visit us!
