Mitai show vs. Te Puia?

I'm planning to go to the Mitai evening show and walk. Is the show at Te Puia much different? I'm thinking maybe just a morning at Te Puia to see the sights, then the Rotorua Museum and some of the parks. Comments?

If you are going to Mitai, I would concentrate on the geysers, kiwi house, weaving , carving and interactive display at Te Puia. Also take a walk around Kuirau Park and nearby Ohinemutu village.

The museum is a great place to start. Afterwards you may want to visit the Buried Village and take a walk in the Whakarewarewa forest. .

I hope the sun shines for you and you have a great time in Rotorua (and NZ). If you have time, post a review of your experiences. Your 'thank you' is much appreciated. More often than not T/A's have no idea whether their advice has been helpful or ignored.

As a DE myself, I know all too well what you mean.
