Good educational evening, great food (hangi) and cultural performance but lots of people.

Indispensable to discover and understand the Maori culture, even if is now becoming a business. Show was very realistic and nice to see. We recommend going in low season when less people are there. Great typical Maori dinner and walk through the forest and glowworms.

The Maori people gave us a great show and very good food! They were enthusiastic and funny! Only in my opinion, it was very touristic and very expensive for what we have got.

I did this to get more information about Maori and there it is not so good. It is very interesting to learn about their singing and dancing and the people doing it are very funny and lovely. Also the food tastes great. If you are looking for good food and entertainment go for it. But I heard that there is a better place on the West Coast of the South Island.
