We perform checks on reviews.
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.

We had so much fun during our 3-day drive/tour with Dave. He was so kind to show us around and bring us to the places we wanted to see and stop to take photos. The owner, Jessie, was also so kind to entertain our queries. I highly recommend The Real New Zealand Experience!

We had a wonderful trip courtesy of The Real New Zealand Experience. Craig and Jesse really understood what we were looking for and made it happen. We had such a wonderful time and fit most everything we wanted to do in 4-days. A whirlwind trip and memories that I am grateful to have made. Thank you for an amazing vacation!

Dear Craig and Jessie, we wanted to thank you very much for planning the trip to New Zealand for Grace, Baby Evaa and I. It was amazing and exceeded our expectations! We had a wonderful time and were very pleased with the accommodations. Underhill Valley and Moonlight Acres was mind blowing. We appreciate all the effort to get us to all the lovely destinations. It was a great 9-10 days. We think that the private and small group tours were the best way to go. 

All in all, it was the trip of our dreams and we would happily use your services again in the future, (The Real New Zealand Experience indeed)! We loved every minute of our trip and can't wait to plan another in the future. Please extend our thanks to all those involved in this tour.

I can’t say enough good about Jessie, Craig and The Real New Zealand Experience! What they offer is exactly what I was looking for—Jessie planned out our whole agenda, Craig drove us everywhere, the accommodations were amazing, and the whole trip was magical! I didn’t want to drive while there, and of course I don’t know the area, so what they offer in the planning and transportation and accommodations is just perfect. We absolutely loved staying on their farm, which was within an easy drive to all the fun things we wanted to do on the North Island. And did we have fun! Kayaking, Four-wheeling at the Agridome, horseback riding, Bungy (my daughter!), parasailing, and of course, Hobbiton! They really made it hard to leave. My daughter especially loved the animals on their farm (Moonlight Acres). And of course there’s Underhill! What an experience! To see the North Island, I can’t recommend highly enough The Real New Zealand Experience!
