Culture & History Tours

Rotorua has plenty of Maori attractions, including the New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute, Tamaki Maori Village, the Buried Village and several Hangi and other cultural displays.

Rotorua offers a great opportunity to understand Maori culture, and a trip to the Whakarewarewa thermal village will give you the added benefit of seeing natural attractions as well. Understand the history of Rotorua, see the legendary “Penny Divers” - local Maori children who jump off the bridge into the stream below chasing your pennies, and witness the fantastic performance of the Te Pakira Cultural Group showcasing Maori song and dance including the Haka. The adjacent New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute at Te Puia has a weaving house, kiwi house, Maori meeting house and the National Carving School with master carvers. Get great views of the erupting Pohutu, and the Prince of Wales geyser, so named because the 3 directions the geyser shoots out resembles the feathers on the Prince of Wales crest.
