Owner description: Tamaki Maori Village – Evening Cultural Experience. New Zealand’s Most Awarded Cultural Experience! Experience an evening of ceremonial ritual, powerful cultural performance, storytelling & hangi feasting. Share in the Powhiri, our ancient ceremony of welcome before entering our pre-European Maori Village nestled within a native Tawa Forest. The village comes alive with sights, sounds & activity of days gone by including haka, poi, tattooing, weaving, carving and arts of warrior training. You will have the opportunity to participate in these activities. Witness the earth being scraped away from the hangi pit to reveal baskets of food cooked beneath the ground on hot stones. Enter the ancestral meeting house and enjoy a powerful cultural performance before dining the traditional hangi buffet feast!

The hangi meal (potato, sweet potato, carrot, lamb, chicken) is delicous. The meat is very tender and spices are great. The whole experience is very interesting culturally and there is lots to learn about the maori.

“Worth every penny!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

My husband and I traveled here in June for an evening show and we were not dissapointed. Very friendly staff who are so informative of the Mauri Culture. If you are going to see a cultural show while in New Zealand, it should be this one!

I highly recommend this Maori cultural experince - perfect for all ages. It was fun to get involved with the tasks and the concert was highly entertaing. And to top off a fantastic evening, the buffet meal (cooked in a hangi) was out of this world!! A MUST DO!!!! Sarah & Charlie (Urban Retreat)
