Even though we are 10mins...
Neneth_A, Apr 2023
Even though we are 10mins late with our schedule due to road glitches, viator support contact centre were so helpful to coordinate with the tour team. Also, the tourist guide was so witty. What a privilege to set foot in their village and to take a photo-snap opportunity with the family.
Introduction to Māori culture and life

Interesting guided tour of the Māori village highlights including natural cooking and bathing areas, cultural presentation of song and dance, and beautiful walk through the geyser lakes.
Must visit village tour!

The highlight was to see how the Māori connected with the land, how they respected and protected it. They educate their young with history and allow them to collect back to their genealogy.
Great tour and great guide!

I went on this tour solo because my boyfriend couldn’t make it. It was an amazing days in such incredible and stunning places. The guide was amazing explaining everything in details both about landscape and mori’s culture.I learnt a lot and was a great day. We were a really small group and that was fantastic: such a different and better experience than the usual tour with a lot of people. Highly recommended!
Good Visit
