Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely staff, great slights over all the wineries. Small plane with not much space. Probably could offer candy as my wife had trouble unblocking her ears which became quite uncomfortable. Flew from Wellington which is an artwork in itself

Take off from Wellington in zero wind was in complete contrast to our landing there two weeks previously. The journey was swift and comfortable in this 9 seater aircraft. Brilliant way to travel speedily from A to B.

"small 12 seater aircraft, weight is a serious matter so don't take too much luggage or if you do, expect to be charged for it."
