    Have done this twice and both times it was very interesting. The second time was a little different but still very good. The food was good too and staff were very friendly. Great to see the live kiwis in their specially created habitat. A wonderful way to spend an evening

    The Willowbank Wildlife Reserve was very interesting with lots of unique animals and the personal tour was really nice. The Maori concert was fun and the dinner was really good.

    The Maori concert was a lot of fun. The meal was OK, but have had better. The Kiwi and Kea experience was excellent!

    The Maori performance was the best part. The dinner was average. I thought it was going to be a large group of people. The guide for the wildlife tour did not seem like he wanted to be there. And although you barely get to see Kiwi, you don't get any good pictures of them because you can't use a flash. The driver for the tours was excellent though.

    Couldn't see much of the animals as it was dark. Concert was tops! They got everyone involved in the Maori dancing, haka experience.

    This was totally not what we expected. We were the only 2 travellers on this tour, and although we joined a larger party at Willowbank, we were seated on our own for the dinner, which was not the Maori style dinner were expecting. The Maori concert, although authentic in parts, was performed in a plastic covered outbuilding, not a traditional setting, and consisted of very few performers. The only saving grace of this tour was the visit to the kiwi house after dark and the setting of live kiwi in an almost wild setting. We could not recommend this tour.
