What to Expect
Travel reference:

This amazing Maori village experience was rated one of the top 10 tours in the world in 2019!

You'll be picked up from your Rotorua hotel and travel about 15 minutes to Tamaki Maori Village, situated deep within 200-year old native Tawa forest. En route, a humourous guide will prepare you for your authentic Maori hangi dinner and share protocol for visiting the marae (meeting grounds).

Upon arrival, hear frightening cries of welcome and experience the powhiri (welcome ceremony) given by a proud descendent of New Zealand's ancient warriors, the Maori. As you then enter the village, you'll pass traditional whare (houses) with crackling open fires and hear classic instruments. Enjoy this rare opportunity to observe a re-enactment of daily activities and traditional arts and crafts typical of a pre-European Maori village.

Once at the wharenui (meeting house), you'll see a powerful performance featuring the haka song and dance. Then, it is time for your hangi feast - dig into slow-cooked meat and vegetables roasted in underground earthen ovens plus delicious desserts. Afterwards, you will be returned to your hotel in Rotorua.
