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.

Greg is a fantastic operator. He isn’t just a cab driver - he is a tour guide and local expert. Greg helped me out with a proposal to my fiance. My request was a bit from left field but Greg was super accomodating. He’s down to earth but also very professional. I’d thoroughly recommend to get in touch if you are visiting the Island!

Beware! Greg of Aurora Cabs is the rudest most abusive Kiwi I have ever encountered during a lifetime of experience of travelling around NZ Unprovoked and uncalled for immediate unplesantness and subsequent obscenties delivered in response to a simple and polite roadside enquiry for a short ride to our accomodation in Stewart Island Extremely upsetting and highly unusual Please be aware that this proprietor/driver is most likely unstable and potentially aggressive and/or dangerous to encounter My reccommendation is to avoid him and his service at all costs

I am sorry I could not help you on the day. Pretty harsh comments considering you were not a customer of Aurora cab.

Greg was an incredibly gracious, knowledgeable driver (and a 5th or 6th generation Stewart Islander on top of that!). We knew we were in great hands from start to finish!

This is a very busy business as the only cab company on Stewart Island. We used them twice as drop off and pickup from Rakiura track. Very friendly and knowledgeable driver. Text is best way to contact them as they don't pickup callls when driving. We got a recommendation for a day walk which we thoroughly enjoyed to Wohlers monument around Deep bay. It cost $50 for pickup from Lee Bay.

Could not recommend more! We took a number of rides with Greg due to a injury and he was easy to contact and always able to help. Shared so much knowledge and kindness with us. Thank you Greg!

Greg was fantastic. He was waiting to pick us up off the ferry. We were only doing a day trip to Stewart Island so only had limited time. Greg is a friendly local so we spent an hour and a half touring some of the Islands main points of interest with someone who has lots of inside knowledge. He even helped us buy so some local hot chips, and they were very good. Highly recommended. We went on to do the Ulva Island explorer tour in the afternoon, which was great too.

Gregg was recommended to us (4 adults) for a private tour. He is the perfect person for this given his knowledge, links to the island, sense of humour and professionalism. We were taken to places and given information that enhanced our stay
Following the we used Gregg again and he was ahead of time. Would highly recommend
