Explore an authentic living Maori village atop a geothermal plateau during this guided tour. Learn how they use geothermal resources to cook, bathe and heat their homes, view the iconic Pohutu Geyser, devour a corn cob cooked in a hot pool and take in a number of historical landmarks and buildings.
Experience the magnificence of a geothermal landscape and the unique experience of a traditional Maori village with a visit to Whakarewarewa, located in Rotorua. Led by the direct descendants of the early Maori guides, you will discover where people live on a daily basis and how they use natural geothermal resources to cook, bathe and heat their homes as they have for centuries. You'll view the world-famous Pohutu geyser, boiling mud-pools, steam vents and bubbling pools, and admire historical landmarks and buildings including the WWII Memorial Archway and tapu (sacred) burial grounds. To top off the tour, you'll enjoy a corn on the cob cooked in the largest hot pool in the village.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
