close view at Maori culture

If you were to revisit Maori culture, this is the best place. One can witness all their dances, customs in a very organised way. They have nicely preserved their habits.

The initial ceremony and in the theater dances were great, it's really a good cultural experience. Some of the attendees were invited to join the dances and singers. Very nice! Would I make a long trip just to see these? Probably not, but you can admire the geyser nearby as well. All in all is worth.

This is a place which opens its doors free to Rotorua citizens once a year and often I go. The geyser is good and the walk is interesting from a mudpool viewing perspective. I lie the corn cooked in the hot pool.

We really enjoyed this dinner theatre/cultural show and hangi. The food part or hangi is a pleasant buffet and food good but not the primary reason to go. The performance troupe is a family affair that has been doing this for 40 years and onto the 3rd generation. They do a very personable presentation and discussion so would highly recommend.... More
