Amazing experience that all should go!

Very easy to book. Our 15 year old son went and said it was worth it. Food excellent. Friendly staff. Excellent cultural experience. Plenty of time to look around. Plenty of time to eat, lots of food. Excellent entertainment throughout the night. Great bus driver JR. plenty of chances to take photos. There is a bar, good prices. You eat late so be prepared for that. Pick up and drop off was excellent. This is one of the best tours I have be3n on world wide culturally.

I was expecting so much more

I was really dissapointed bus this experience. I felt like I was at the circus. We barely learnt anything about Maoris. The comedians were repeting their text . Some of them were very good and made us feel welcome; some were just there to do their job. I didn't learnt much about Maoris, I have only seen a few activities that they used to do,while I would hae liked to learnt about their culture, history, society, believes. Also, we were always rushed from one place to the other, no time to appreciate what was around us, to have a look around the village, to ask questions, to enjoy our dessert... It was quite crowded. When you pay such a high price,you expect to have a wonderful night.
