  • Excellent experience. We took the full tour which is highly recommended - the speakers were very engaging and entertaining while also very accessible with describing their topics. The dinner was a great opportunity to try a full meal of traditional Cook Islands dishes, which will be a highlight for anyone who likes to explore food. The music/dancing/theatre was also high quality and beautifully staged. The whole experience provided a fantastic context for understanding the Cook Islands way of life during our stay.
