Our Cultural Village Tour with Buffet Dinner was a not to be missed experience for visitors to Rarotonga. The ' Village ' tour was very interesting with lots of history of the Maori people and the way of life that was lived on the island. The dinner was very good with a wide variety of food. The show was terrific with the dancing and drumming. The show was very colourful with the history of the Maori interweaved in the show. Then we enjoyed a lovely buffet dessert. The dancers came out and mixed with the audience for some fun and a photo opportunity. After the show we were directed to our shuttle buses that brought us to Te Vara Nui Village. All in all a great experience. Kevin and Jenny
