We had a wonderful couple of hours walking around the Whakearewarewa Living Maori Village with the guided tour from a Maori that actually lives in the village, seeing how they use the thermal pools in their everyday lives, and then eating a hangi steamed in those pools.

I had such a lovely time walking around the living village
Brittney 2 years ago

I had such a lovely time walking around the living village, learning about the geothermal pools and what it is like to live here. Our guide was great and made the experience memorable. The sweet corn was so delicious we had to go back for seconds! The cultural show was also great and highly enjoyable and entertaining. Overall this was a great experience that combined all of Rotorua's iconic attractions.

The experience was quite enjoyable
Dana McKinnon-Bateman 3 years ago

The experience was quite enjoyable. The guided tour through the village was very interesting and different. We didn't realize that people still lived in the village which made it all the more real and exciting. Highly recommend getting the Hangi lunch as well, it was delicious !! The concert was also awesome and entertaining. Overall amazing time and would recomend to anyone who is interested in the Maori culture and history.

This was a great way to see this village
Colleen Murray 3 years ago

This was a great way to see this village. We booked a tour then hangi meal then show. We were looked after from when we entered the booking office to get our tickets right to the end of the show. People were friendly, we learned a lot from the tour guide Moana and the show was awesome. The Hangi food was cooked in a steam box and was delicious

Absorb as much Maori culture as you can on this tour. The cultural performance is real, raw and earthy. It is a fascinating performance full of emotion and power.
