Highly recommended

The one show you must see when you are in Rotorua. The guide is very knowledgeable and friendly and he will walk you through the village, telling you all the interesting and essential bits about life in the village. The walk is easy and insightful, plenty of chance for you to interact and learn from the guide. After the tour, there is a cultural show performed by the tribe. You are free to explore the village or sample the Hangi pie and corn cooked with thermal heating. Definitely worth it, complete your New Zealand holiday with this tour.

What to expect

Any visit to New Zealand isn't complete without experiencing the local culture, and the Whakarewarewa Village is New Zealand's only true living Maori village. With over five generations having lived here, you'll learn about the fascinating use of the geothermal valley in their day to day lives. From bathing to cooking and heating their homes, the geothermal wonders aren't just a spectacular sight. Whakarewarewa Village is also home to the famous Pohutu and Prince of Wales Feathers geysers, so keep an eye out to watch them burst with plumes of steam. Make sure to catch the Maori Cultural Performance Show, where you can witness the powerful and sacred Haka as well as stories, song and dance that play an important role in the Maori culture.
