Our hotel recommended this evening in preference to the others available and we were not disappointed. Transport included from the hotel. When everyone was seated in the large hall the host welcomed us all asking which countries we were from. Amazingly he could speak - even if only a few words - in every single language and there were about 20 different countries represented. Very entertaining. We then saw how our food was being cooked in their traditional way followed by watching the Maori arriving in their impressive canoe which was a brilliant sight. Then a ceremony explaining traditions, history, tattoos etc, followed by the meal which was very good. Although the queues were long the dishes were replenished frequently so no one missed out. To end the evening we were taken by torchlight to their crystal clear sacred pool, where we saw glow worms. A magical evening, and highly recommended.
