A beautiful example of Maori culture and way of life. The show was great but that Pavlova is still in my dreams!!! Un hermoso ejemplo de cultura Maori. Los bailes lindos y la comida riquísima. Sueño al postre Pavlova.

From start to finish we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Every single person that works at the Tamaki Maori Village was amazing. The performances and the whole venue were brilliant. The food was also great.

A fantastic presentation that kept the kids (and us) entertained & engaged the whole time. From the moment we arrived, the bus trip and the information provided it was definitely money well spent. The kids haven't stopped talking about it.

Let them know in advance and they’ll prepare veggie food :) I had an amazing lasagne - then helped myself to all the delicious veggies too. Save room for pavlova after!
