    Tamaki Maori Village
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    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.

Sensational!
Aug. 2021
Be transported to a time and place where the senses are awakened and the magic of Māori storytelling is brought to life through kōrero, waiata, haka, games, and laughter in a unique and interactive village experience like no other. We left there feeling very special, well looked after, and thoroughly entertained. Fun for the whole whānau, friends, large groups, and corporates. Ngā mihi nui ki a koutou mō tō manaaki i a mātou o Te Whare Reo Rangatira o Tukarere. Nō mātou te waimarie.

Incredible!
Aug. 2021 • Friends
I went to the night experience with a large group of friends. All kiwis but we had an absolute blast. The activities at night in amongst the beautifully lit bush was stunning and then we got treated to an incredible performance by the extended whānau that runs the place. Highly, highly recommended.

Incredible experience - Te Kura o Tititea
Jul. 2021
We had a cultural trip to Rotorua and we couldn't have spent our final night in a better way than by visiting Tamaki Village. Our students enjoyed the interactive workshops and some were bought to tears watching the performance. There was a huge selection of delicious kai for dinner followed by poroporoaki. We felt incredibly well looked after from the moment we stepped onto the bus and highly recommend the experience, especially to other kura.

Educational, Fun and Soul Fulfilling!
Aug. 2021 • Business
Came with no expectations and was thoroughly blown away, what an enriching, moving experience. Educational, humorous, fun and soul fulfilling! I’ve lived in NZ for 16 years and this was the most fun way to engage and learn more about the Maori culture. The hangi was just like Christmas, delicious and moorish! Id recommend fasting before you go 😂 A must to everyone who visits Rotorua!
