We enjoyed the performance of Maori song and dance and appreciated being taught the Poi dance, but overall we felt like a herd of cattle being pushed through the evening. Food was okay. Did not get to see the geyser go off but preferred not seeing it as opposed to it being forced to erupt by pouring soap in to it.

Quite expensive - but then they all are, regardless of company. A bit odd because the setting is very modern, but the dancing and food was great and we got to see a geyser explode. It is a large group though - maybe 100+ people.

Bubbling mud village was really cool, guide gave us tour and history, saw haka and got a real insight into Maori culture. We had a free walk around as well.

Cultural show very professional, fantastic. Meal hangi fresh but so many people to eat needed more organising (tables to go to buffet).

Know going in that this is a "touristy" thing to do. That said, it felt fairly authentic and because it is Maori owned, proceeds go to the facility. The weaver and carver craft institute was wonderful, keeping the traditional crafts alive. We were pleasantly surprised at how good the meal was. The performance was also very good. Our only disappointment was that our young guide through the geyser area was not as well informed as he could have been about Maori history and native flora/fauna, although in his defense we did ask pretty in-depth questions. Perhaps an older guide might know more. That said, he was very engaging. We would highly recommend this experience if you have only limited time in Rotorua as we did.

We really had a nice evening with the indeginous evening experience (show and hangi were excellent!) Don't miss this fabulous experience. Also a good guide during the visit.
