Progressive Dinner Tour with the Locals in Rarotonga
Leave the familiar surrounds of your resort and venture out to the villages to experience true Cook Islands cuisine, hospitality and the real spirit of culture and lifestyle when you visit the locals in their homes.
Enjoy a three course meal with each course in a different local home. Explore the tropical garden that the host of the first course has to offer before jetting off to the main course where you will be treated to a buffet feast fit for a King or Queen. Dessert will treat you with local sweets, fruit as well as tea and brewed coffee. Whilst eating at each course, you will be delighted by the sounds of local ukuleles, guitar and voices of the small string band that will accompany the tour.

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.
What a great night shared with local families enjoying local food and also stories about their families and daily life. Learnt so much about Rarotonga and their wonderful culture.
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.
Great evening meeting local people and enjoying local food. Something everyone should do.The range of food was excellent and the chats with the locals were very good.
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.
Awesome! highlight of our trip. If you are in to learning about local culture, history and food then this is a must do experience. The food and the hosts were absolutely Awesome!!! Would give this one more stars if they were available!
This tour gave such an aweome insight into the everyday life of cook islanders. It was so nice to sit down with local families and share a delicious meal! The food on this tour was amazing!! Loved every second of this tour!!
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.
