The Culture North show was an excellent evening's entertainment and education. The performers were all very skilled and the explanations provided by Kena in respect to how the appointed chiefs should respond to the challenge were outstanding. We have attended other shows where the challenge was performed. At Mitai it was obvious that the chiefs were briefed, but the rest of the audience would not have realised the detail of what was going on. We understood what was happening much better because of the information provided on the Culture North show. The numbers on the night were manageable also. No dinner provided, so with that in consideration it's similar value to other shows that provide dinner and considerably cheaper as you just have your own dinner however you prefer. We were glad to have done this tour.

Entertaining and informative night show, telling the story of the arrival of the first maori and the signing of the Treaty with the Europeans. Set in the carved meeting house on the treaty grounds at Waitangi and with cast from the local tribes adding to the authenticity.Best Cultural experience in NZ.

As a kiwi traveller I wasn't sure about going to a cultural show as we see a lot of it here, but while being in Waitangi I thought it would be a good thing to do - I have to say I found this to be a really proud and moving experience that I would recommend for any New Zealander and international traveller, totally absorbing and authentic. It takes a lot for a kiwi to say that too!

This Maori Evening show seemed more authentic than over commercialized.
Interesting performance, very informative. However, a bit to expensive for an 1.5 hour show.
Their night show at Waitangi was awesome. I have travelled all over NZ and thought that this was one of the best maori culture shows I have seen. the performers were excellent and it was great meeting them after the show. Definitely a must if you are staying in the bay of islands.
