We took the Twilight Experience, wondering what to expect because it was new. Our group ranged from babies to older adults - was it suitable for all of us? From the pickup at our motel to our return..... more »
I think we were one of the first groups to try the new kai experience at Tamaki Maori Village and wow, the food was absolutely fantastic, burgers were out of this world - incredibly tasty, guides... more »
Great Experience. Our group did the night tour and we all enjoyed the tour very much. It’s a very touristy affair but I guess this is as close a Maori experience as one can expect these days. Very informative and fun villagers, great performance and entertaining bus drivers. The feast at the end of the show is incredible.
Absolutely loved this experience. Out of everything I’ve done in New Zealand this was by far the highlight of my trip. It was fascinating with many different aspects to jam pack the experience. Highly recommend
