We enjoyed all of it...!!

Approximately $100 each, we were picked up from our hotel and dropped off at the end of the evening, in an open air bus, nice relaxing start!

Meet with a complimentary drink, we were guided through different parts of Cook Islands heritage, culture, day to day life, food and was superbly presented with terrific artefacts, entrancing storytelling and provided something for all ages....

Dinner and show, well just fabulous!! Sounds, colour, rhythm, the music, the drums, dancing (men and women). Great location allowed viewing of the night's entertainment from all angles. The food was plentiful, well presented and delicious

A definite must see for those who enjoy cultural and heritage tours....

We highly recommend it!!!

This is in my opinion, one of the two must do activities , while in Rarotonga. The cultural show, and the meal, (especially the cooked taro leaves), are two things not to miss.

This was a very nice evening. The cultural village tour was very interesting. The village staff were very accommodating and allowed plenty of time for questions. Quite informative. The dinner show was spectacular! The dancing is amazing! (How do they do that!?) The food was very good and the staff very friendly with attentive drink service. The over the water setting very nice.

A fine group of young adults presented a 'Kava bowl' ceremony and local dancing with great enthusiasm. A very enjoyable hour
