This is genuinely a local experience where you get to meet the hosts and share a meal with them. A unique experience of how the locals really live with a few of their stories thrown in for good measure.

A definite must! Very relaxing and informative visit with three different families who open their homes to us. They discuss their family history and how they possessed the land they live on. Oh yea, and they also share a native meal with us. The first family serves an appetizer which could have been a meal in itself, the second the actual meal, and the third dessert. A very enjoyable 3.5 hours.

This was a GREAT experience!! I had my doubts going in, but was very satisfied with the results. Our group of 10? maybe more travelers Visited 3 different local families at their home. We picked up at our various hotels and traveled as a group tot he 3 different homes. Each host family shared their Rarotonga life experience with us, while the driver and others played soft music in the background. Our driver and I believe the owner of the business joined one of the host families in a medley of songs for out entertainment. Food was great, and the visitation experience was fun. HIGHLY recommend!!!!!!!

This was our best experience on the island and we had some great ones. The family home experience is not to be missed. The culture of the people and the life style we experienced was so memorable. We visited three homes and were treated with the best local dishes and story. We told everyone we saw to be sure to sign up for this experience as you will take home a bit of the island with you forever. Gary and Kim, Arizona USA

This activity was the highlight of my week-long stay in Rarotonga. Even before we went on it, I thought the idea of it was so innovative and clever and the experience itself exceeded my expectations. Well done to all involved for setting the scene for the rest of our holiday and keep up the good work.

It was a delightful evening when a few of the local people open up their homes and share who they are and some insight in to their lives the food they eat. It was a lot of fun and also great too meet some of the other tourists from around the world.
