Although I was on a tour, it felt like I was visiting family. Everyone was so warm and friendly. As someone who reads reviews before booking a tour I can say stop reading and book this tour, your welcome.

We so enjoyed this dinner. Fun to see the people's homes. Really learned how important the family is here in Raro. Loved the garden tour at the first home, and of course the FOOD was fantastic. Nice to be able to ask some questions also. A great experience we would highly recommend.

Another highlight. One negative. Just a long evening!! Have found everything booked in Rarotonga is a long event. All several hours long. Guess that's the island time! However. Food made with love for sure. Better then any restaurant we've been to. Definitely recommend. Thanks to our hosts and Rarotonga tours!!

This was excellent, very informative meeting with local families, and foot was very good. You are taken to one family for entree, another for main meal and last for dessert.

Progressive Dinner on Rarotonga

This was a unique experience that no one should pass up. You visit three different homes on the island and hear the stories of the local families and tribal traditions. It costs about 50USD for the ride, food, stories and the chance to see the locals just as they are. I probably would not recommend it for kids under 12 or so.

It being my 2nd Progressive Dinner Tour on Rarotonga I had a fair idea how they worked. This one was not a disappointment. The information provided by the local hosts enlightened us about early Cook Islands through to current times on subjects such as selecting their Representatives for Local Government and Rules for Land Ownership.
