Fabulous experience for the entire family! We learned about Māori culture, had an incredible hāngi feast and really enjoyed the performance of traditional song and dance. The hosts were wonderful and so knowledgeable. Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn more about the indigenous peoples of Aotearoa.
