Stop At: Tamaki Maori Village, 1220 Hinemaru St, Rotorua 3010 New Zealand

Your journey through time unfolds when your coach travels to a pre-European village set deep within the forest, 15 minutes from Rotorua. Let this 3.5-hour tour and your imagination take over as your guide instructs you on the protocol for visiting the marae. A chief is selected, a song is learnt and the eerie cry of the welcome is heard before you enter the world of the proud warriors of the ancient Maori.

You will experience the powhiri (welcome ceremony) before you enter the village, with crackling open fires in front of traditional whare (houses). You'll hear traditional Maori instruments and watch the daily activities of days gone by. In the wharenui (meeting house), a Rangiatea culture group offers a powerful display of haka song and dance. Then, as new friendships are forged, dine on a traditional hangi feast, where the food is cooked slowly beneath the ground in earth ovens.

This is an amazing re-enactment based on actual events from history, with real characters, traditional arts and crafts, powerful song and dance while enjoying an authentic Hangi feast.

There were probably around 250 people joined this activity at the same time. And was too much crowded around the Hāngi and inside the Wharenui. But I did enjoy interact with the local Māori at the village and the food was overflowing.

A really fun and informative event. Our driver to and from the dinner was extremely amusing and gave us some insight to the Maori culture. Once at the Maori site, we learnt a lot more about the customs and history of the Maori people. The dinner was very good and I would recommend this tour.

I had the most wonderful Hangi meal,

This is how our meal was cooked in the ground with hot's rook's and left to steam for about 3hrs, they uncovered the sack's and pulled the most beautiful meal out from the ground, i have never tasted Hangi food before, but i think it's one of the most beautiful meal's i have ever tasted in my life
