La entrada al lugar vale la pena, ofrece un show de una familia maori donde muestran la cultura. La villa cuenta tiene una gran actividad termal y demuestran como se cocinaba antiguamente en el lugar. Además se ofrecen almuerzos en el lugar o trozos de choclo cocinados en los geiser

We appreciate you spending some time with us at Whakarewarewa and sharing your thoughts with other Trip Advisor members, that Whakarewarewa is the "Best Rotorua Maori village" and offers a Maori cultural show and is worth the visit.

Visiting Whakarewarewa is about learning a little of the Māori culture, history and people while also getting some knowledge of the uniqueness of the Te Whakarewarewa geothermal valley. The geothermal attractions include being able to view the world famous “Pohutu” Geyser and the Prince of Wales Feathers Geyser, numerous mudpools, steam vents, bubbling geothermal waters in an amazing atmosphere with steam and mist swirling around.

As you will be aware, the fully guided tour and the cultural performance show are included in the admissions price. The shows are on daily at 11.15am and 2.00pm, so it does pay to plan your visit so as not to miss this. If our manuhiri (visitors) do miss the show, they are invited back the next day so they can have the full experience.

The cultural performance you mentioned is always seen as one of the highlights of a visit. The show is performed by one of Rotorua’s leading Kapa Haka groups - Te Pakira. The performance includes Waiata (songs) of our history, Patere (rhythmic chants), performance of the world famous HAKA (performed by NZ sporting teams) and audience participation set which is always a fun time. The voices of the performers are amazing and their explanation of the songs gives everyone a great understanding of its historical significance.

There is so much to do at Whakarewarewa, from the guided tour, self-guided tours, the cultural performance show, viewing the geysers in full eruption, the mud-pools, steam vents, walking the back tracks and seeing the coloured lakes, the boardwalks, flora and fauna, to experiencing the food cooked in the bubbling pools and steam vents served at our Café. Food (kai) available at the Café includes Hangi meals, hangi pies, muffins, scones, cakes, sandwiches and a variety of drinks. As you also mentioned there sweet-corn on the cob cooked in one of our bubbling pools - Parekohuru.

When strolling around the Village you can browse the shops which include a pounamu (NZ Jade -greenstone) shop with a resident carver, a Ta Moko (tattoo) shop with a resident tattooist, souvenir shops with a range of clothing, jewellery, arts works and general souvenirs. We also have a Kohanga Reo (early education centre), two old churches (Anglican and Catholic) dating from the early 1900’s, along with various privately owned homes occupied by the Villagers.

Kapai, (thank-you) for taking the time to review Whakarewarewa and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Be safe and please do come back and visit us again.

El tour por el pueblo nos costó 35$NZD y merece la pena, te van esplicando sus costumbres, como siguen utilizando la zona geotermal en la que viven para calefaccion, cocinar o bañarse.....un recorrido por un pueblo que va perdiendo costumbres con el paso de las generaciones.
Incluso comimos allí de la comida que preparan por 32$NZD el plato tipico, muy rico(maiz, pollo, patatas, filete y fruta con pastel)

We certainly appreciate you taking the time to visit us at The Living Māori Village, and sharing your thoughts that it is an “authentic Māori Village”.

Our Guides who live in the village love spending time with our manuhiri (visitors) and try and give everyone an understating of Māori culture, the history of the Valley and the people, and what it is like to live within this unique geothermal environment. Cooking in the bubbling pools and steam vents, heating their homes from the steam vents and geothermal waters and bathing in the refreshing and therapeutic waters is all part of everyday life, and something which is unique.

There is so much to do in the Village and around Te Whakarewarewa Valley including taking a guided tour, attending the cultural performance show which is on daily at 11.15 am and 2.00 pm. As you will be aware both the cultural performance show and the fully guided tour are included in the entry price. There is also the chance to walk the back tracks and see the coloured lakes and get some great views over the valley and Rotorua.

The cultural show is performed by the Te Pakira group, one of Rotorua’s premier Kapa Haka groups. The performance itself includes waiata (songs) of our history, Patere (rhythmic chants), stick games and performance of the world famous HAKA (performed by NZ sporting teams) and audience participation set which is always a fun time. There is also the opportunity to meet with the performers after the show and get some great photos.

It is great to hear that you had a full hangi meal at our café. As you mentioned the food (kai) is cooked in the steam vents and bubbling pools and has a rich amazing taste. The meal includes sweet corn on the cob, chicken, steak, kumara (sweet potato), carrots and our steamed pudding (cooked in the steam box), topped with custard and cream - absolutely delicious.

As you will be aware there are also have a number of other shops to browse in the village which include a pounamu (greenstone) shop with a resident carver, a Ta Moko (tattoo) shop with a resident tattooist, souvenir shops with a range of clothing, jewellery, arts works and general souvenirs.

We do hope you also got to see the geysers in full eruption and see the various mud-pools.

Kapai, (thank-you) for taking the time to review Whakarewarewa and give us your thoughts. Travel safely and enjoy the rest of your time in Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Fuimos con muchas expectativas y llegamos al tour de las 15:00 y nos dijeron que al ser tan tarde ya no incluirían el espectáculo haka y que en todo caso volviéramos al día siguiente. En nuestra situación ya nos iba a trastocar toda la ruta pues teníamos que seguir el itinerario. Nos dio bastante rabia pero bueno, hicimos el pequeño tour por el pueblo maorí y lo único que vimos fueron los pantanos geotérmicos que era curioso pero la guía no aportaba gran información excepto que allí cocinaban y que descendía de maories y su familia vivía allí. Las tiendas de souvenirs también estaban cerradas. Si se quiere ver algo y no sentirse estafado, mejor ir antes de las 14:00. En NZ todo cierra a las 16:30 incluso lo turístico y te trastoca todos los planes.

Kapai (thank-you) for your comments on the time you spent with us at Whakarewarewa.

The $35 Admission Charge (a Family Pass is $85 for 2 adults and up-to 4 children) does include a fully Guided Tour and a Cultural Performance show (at 11.15 am and 2.00 pm daily). As you rightly said, for those that do miss the 2.00 pm performance we do offer the opportunity to return the next day so everyone can get the full experience.

We are somewhat sad that this was not convenient for you, though believe it is important that visitors plan the time around the shows. The Cultural Performance Show is performed by the Te Pakira Kapa Haka group who are a group of professional performers, and are recognised as one of the premier groups within Rotorua, who perform at Whakarewarewa, and throughout Rotorua City.

The handmade and carved musical instruments used in the performance include Poi’s (swinging tethered weights), Puakaea (wooden trumpet), Koauau (end blown flute), and the Putatara (Conch shell trumpet). The performance itself includes waiata (songs) of our history, Patere (rhythmic chants), stick games and performance of the world famous HAKA and audience participation section, which is always enjoyable.

Our Guides who live in the village love spending time with our visitors (manuhiri) and try and give everyone an understating of Māori culture, the history of the Valley and the people, and what it is like to live within this unique geothermal environment. Cooking in the bubbling pools and steam vents, heating their homes from the geothermal waters and bathing in the refreshing and therapeutic waters is all part of everyday life, and something that is unique.

Te Whakarewarewa Valley is a unique geothermal field which has mudpools, steam vents, bubbling geothermal waters, and the opportunity to view the world famous “Pohutu” Geyser and the Prince of Wales Feathers Geyser. We do hope you got to see the Geysers in full eruption, as there are spectacular.

There is a lot to do in the Village and throughout the Valley, with many shops to browse, including a pounamu (greenstone) shop with a resident carver, a Ta Moko (tattoo) shop with a resident tattooist, souvenir shops with a range of clothing, jewellery, arts works and general souvenirs, along with a Kohanga Reo (early education centre), two old churches (Anglican and Catholic) dating from the early

Thanks again for your comments, if you would like to discuss specific concerns about your visit, please feel free to contact us. Enjoy the rest of your time in New Zealand and travel safely.

Nos gustó mucho la visita a este pueblo maorí donde viven familias maorís actualmente y gestionan las visitas turísticas a las maravillas geotermales del mismo. El guía fue excepcional, nos relató no sólo la historia de la formación del poblado, sino cómo utilizan en la actualidad la actividad geotermales para cocinar, aseo, calefacción, etc.
Aparte de la visita guiada hay un espectáculo maorí de danza y canciones que es "mejorable", aunque lo arreglan al final permitiendo a gente participar. Es muy recomendable probar la comida "hangi" que preparan en sus hornos geotermales, de hecho son los únicos que lo hacen así.
También tienen rutas para hacer a pie y la actividad geotermal y los geisers.

It is great to hear that you enjoyed the experience at Whakarewarewa and took the opportunity to try the hangi food (kai) cooked in the geothermal steam and waters. The food is delicious, so thank-you for “highly recommending” it to other Trip Advisor members.

Connecting with the Guides is an important part of the overall experience, so the feedback that your guide was exceptional is great, and will be passed onto the Guides.

As you will be aware, the Guides who live in the village love spending time with our visitors (manuhiri) and try to give everyone an understating of Māori culture, the history of the Valley and the people, and what it is like to live within this unique geothermal environment.

Te Whakarewarewa Valley is a unique geothermal field which has mudpools, steam vents, bubbling geothermal waters, and the opportunity to view the world famous “Pohutu” Geyser and the Prince of Wales Feathers Geyser. The attraction is about giving our visitors the opportunity to experience a diverse range of geothermal wonders in one place, something extremely unique in New Zealand and the world. We are passionate about educating everyone about this uniqueness, and protecting it for future generations.

You mentioned there is so much to do at Whakarewarewa, from the guided tour, self-guided tours, the cultural performance show, viewing the geysers in full eruption, the mud-pools, steam vents, walking the back tracks and seeing the coloured lakes, the boardwalks, flora and fauna, to experiencing the food cooked in the bubbling pools and steam vents served at our Ned’s Café.

The cultural performance, which is included in the entry price, includes waiata (songs) of our history, Patere (rhythmic chants), performance of the world famous HAKA (performed by NZ sporting teams) and audience participation set which is always a fun time. I am sure you would have got involved in the audience participation side as it is a fun time. Hopefully you also got some photos with the performers and the chance to have a chat with them after the show.

Kapai, thank-you for your great feedback. Travel safely and enjoy the rest of your time in Aotearoa, New Zealand.

A diferencia del vecino Te Pui, Whakarewarewa se trata de un auténtico poblado maori en el que la gente vive y trabaja.
Se puede llegar en bus (linea 2) por 2,50$ trayecto. Caminando se encuentra un poco lejos pero se puede ir también.
Existen varias opciones de ticket. Yo cogí la entrada con la comida típica: Hangi Pie meal que incluye también una mazorca de maiz todo ello preparado utilizando la geotermia del lugar. Me gustó.
La visita es guiada, muy bien explicado todo. Muy interesante ya que sales del lugar conociendo bastante la cultura maorí y el aprovechamiento de los recursos naturales.
Se ven los edificios, el cementerio, las "cocinas", los baños, los barros, piscinas, etc. El geyser Pohutu se puede ver perfectamente y fotografiar aunque esté dentro del recinto Te Pui.
Después de la visita guiada uno puede pasear por el pueblo libremente y hacer un par de sendas por los alrededores.
Por supuesto, no falta un espectáculo de danza. Actuaban 3 hombres y 4 mujeres. Estuvo bien aunque no te olvidas de que es un espectáculo para turistas.

We appreciate you taking the time to visit with us and thank-you (kapai) for placing such wonderful feedback.

It sounds like you really enjoyed your time and got to learn quite a bit about Māori culture, the people and the history, while also enjoying some of the food (kai) cooked in the bubbling pools and steam vents.

The entry fee does include the fully guided tour and a cultural performance. As you mentioned, the guided tour allows everyone to get an understanding of the uniqueness of Te Whakarewarewa Valley, and what it is like for the Villagers to live amongst it on a daily basis. The cooking in the bubbling pools and steam vents is a daily routine, with the food available in the Café, and the bathing in the geothermal waters is said to be both therapeutic and refreshing.

Pohutu Geyser and the Prince of Wales Feathers Geysers are naturally occurring geysers and do erupt as nature intended, (that is naturally, on their own), so glad you got to see them and got some photos. They are amazing when in full eruption.

The cultural performance by Te Pakira (one of Rotorua’s premier Kapa Haka groups) also includes waiata (songs) of our history, Patere (rhythmic chants), performance of the world famous HAKA and audience participation which is always well received.

Thank-you again for your feedback and comments, enjoy the rest of your time in New Zealand and travel safely.
