Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Two of my family members were not particularly keen on me signing us up for this experience, but they ended up loving it! We were also thankful we participated in this on our first full day in New Zealand, because it gave us good insight into Maori culture, which is so fundamental to the country, before heading out to experience both islands.

Have done several of these type of experiences over the year's here in NZ. This was far the most informative we have ever been to. Loved the questions and answers at the end.

A fantastic evening, thoroughly enjoyed. From seeing the food cooking through to glow worms at the end this was a fabulous night.

Whilst in NZ you must do the Māori cultural visit/experience to have an appreciation of the richness and importance of the Māori guardianship of the lands they have looked after since the 1399s This is well rehearsed, and performed, with very good narrative by the host. Food was ok- albeit cooked hungi style. Only concern is the poorly lit and uneven paths encountered during the walk around the site… other than that- do it

The evening at the Mitai Māori Village was awesome!! We learned so much about the Maori culture and history. The canoe ceremony and the stories with traditional entertainment in the theatre area was so good! This really enhanced our visit to New Zealand. The food was great with lots to eat.
I think it would be good to mention that the meal does not start until about 90 mins after start time of the evening. Then people understand they won’t be eating as soon as they get there.
