Awesome experience of the Maori, learning the haka and poi, all kinds of rituals and the most beautiful sunset ever.

Nice meal and background information, music/dance shows interactive. Girls learn poi, boys the haka. Teachers are kids but was ok. Free Wifi.

Nice cultural experience. The chief of the family was very funny and friendly. The buffet food was not cultural at all.

Great value for money. Friendly host. Dinner and breakfast + accomodation and an awesome Haka lesson for the guys and poi for the girls. Recommended!

A bit expensive, but really good chance to meet Maori in person and learn about Maori traditions. The 'Haka' has to be done in underwear!! :D

Started off good, was professional. Performance slacked off towards the end - people talking through performance and making mistakes. Bed sheets not clean! Interesting evening but it could have been better.

He is a born salesman. Experience is O.K but it didn't warrant $75. Sheets were dirty and the show felt like a school concert - many mistakes but you couldn't say anything as they were all children.
