A great experience. We really weren’t expecting much from this tour, but every single person we met was so lovely. It was great to learn about Maori culture while also keeping things light hearted. Food was also lovely! Would highly recommend for anyone going to New Zealand to learn about culture of their people!

The tour guide's lively personality and wealth of knowledge made the tour enjoyable. Witnessing the spouting geyser was truly breathtaking. Delving into the history of art, which illuminated the cultural narrative, was both fascinating and enlightening.

Very interesting tour and informative about the Māori culture— our guide was very good. Dinner was delicious and plentiful— lots of options for celiacs ( gluten free) really enjoyed this experience!

GET GUIDE did not notify Mitai Maori people we were to be collected at specified Accommodation. thankfully the bus driver collected us and helped us out!

3 hours including history, entertainment and hangi buffet with plenty of food and variety, a very good evening's entertainment.
