A real performance and reception by the people from Mitai tribe. The hosts are genuine, passionate about the Maori culture and tradition, in particular, the explanations on their belief of ‘nothingness, darkness, light, vibrations and life’ is really thought provoking. We have totally enjoy the friendliness shown by the hosts and totally worth it. Well done, KiaOra!

The show was excellent. Good voices, dancing, and display of weaponry. The dinner could have used some seasoning, but they did supply salt and pepper shakers on the table. The desserts, while not Maori, were excellent. Everyone I spoke with seemed very happy.
