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 such an incredible time with Darcy on this tour! He is an amazing tour guide with interesting history about Auckland, he took us to some of the coolest spots - and all were unique in their own way. He is so passionate about what he does, and clearly has a love for this fabulous country. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a great time with the best guide!

We spent our first night in New Zealand on this historic bar crawl led by Darcy.

An Auckland native, he indulged our group in a ton of local history, both related to each drinking establishment and New Zealand as a whole. Darcy was an excellent guide and in addition to being knowledgeable and friendly, had a great sense of humor.

If you love learning interesting history tidbits and sampling great local beers, I highly recommend!

We didn’t know what to expect but we ended up having a great time with our host on this historic bar tour. We met at Brew on Quay Bar where bb we met Darcy and had our first drink of the night. Turns out that bar was… well you need to hear Darcy tell you what it is. . We then went to the second bar which turns out to be, and again you need to hear Darcy tell you the stories. The fourth bar was inside the Hotel The Brett and my favorite bar. The fifth bar was at the oldest bar with its own brewery and I actually had one of its beers and I am not a beer drinker.
Glad we did this tour because we learned about the history of Auckland while visiting and drinking at some of Auckland’s historic bars. Highly recommended. I know these “Bolivian” girls had a great time.
