The Potiki group was amazing. They were friendly, they were accommodating, and they always had interesting things to say. It was easily one of the best, if not the best, vacation I've experienced

Just about every aspect was great! The people, the stay, the food and the moments shared were all enjoyable to say the least👍. Everything I've learnt and experienced throughout my journey is valuable as I could see cultural heritage and folklore being passed down beautifully...More
