I found Mitai Maori Village to be an amazing point of view for Maori cultural insight. John the MC was amazing in talking to every culture and catering to the entire crowd. The food is probably one of the best Hangi I've had in my...More

We found that by the time the bus has dropped you at the site, visited the grounds, village, eaten a 3 course meal you will be unlily to leave before 10: it get quite cold so wrap up and wear sturdy shoes.

We didn’t take the night experience either but they are very organised so I would expect by 22:00. It’s a good night but the staff looked very tired the events are every night,
