  • Nice to see that the Maori have not forgotten their roots. The haka and the warrior dances are explained in a fun way and also you do the crash course how do you do the haka. Eating the oldest way prepared hangs style is beautiful to see that our BBQ is the same. Worth a getaway. The price Is good, but you will get something in return. Kia Ora!
