A very informative and inclusive show, entertaining at the same time as educating in history of our nation. Great the way they bring the kids in to be part of the show

Frommers had rated this 3 * and the cost was $65 per person. We were expecting a great show with cast members showing the Maori tatoos and costumes as shown in the Frommer's book. The cast consisted of mainly high school age people and none...More

Interesting history, but I could only understand a few of the actors. Many of them did not speak clearly. It was a one sided depiction of that time in history. The actors and director were very interested in what they were presenting and very friendly...More

I thought the show was very entertaining. Not just a performance of maori songs but a story telling the history of the area and people. An excellent way to share the maori culture with the world.

This is an interesting way to learn about Maori history. The presentation is well done by some talented people. It was also nice to talk to the performers after the show and ask questions. The Treaty Grounds are lovely and well kept.

As we left this show, my husband described it as "charming" -- until I told him what we'd paid for it...then all of the little things that had gone wrong seemed to add up, and we both felt we'd been cheated. For starters, we took...More
