From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home. An absolutely must-do activity when in Rarotonga. We did the Umu Kai tour. It’s hands-on and we learned so much! Amazing friendly, sincere hosts with welcoming hearts who shared their lives and stories with us. Thank you so much for an amazing afternoon/evening. We enjoyed every minute of our time with you.
Our extended family group had an awesome experience on this tour.
I would highly recommend this for families of all ages but it was very good for the children in particular to have such a ‘hands on’ and genuine Rarotongan experience.
The Umu (we helped prepare) was delicious too!
The cultural and fire show was the best experience we had in the Cook Islands. Ngametua and Mania and their family and friends made us feel part of their family. Enjoyed preparing and cooking the feast, plate weaving, being entertained, coconut husking, tree climbing, being entertained and the fire show. Awesome experience and truly a memory my family and I will forever treasure.
