So much in one placeReview by Michael

As my family only had a short time in Rotorua, we found Te Puia to be a great option for sightseeing. It ticked a lot of boxes for us with the Maori cultural show, weaving and carving demonstrations, Boiling mud pools and geysers all in one place. (Posted on 11/26/2014)
