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.

5. Great tour. John, our guide was a wealth of information as we drove the beautiful countryside to the different stops. Wineries were well chosen and offered a variety of tastings. Would highly recommend if in Auckland!

John was great. Beautiful wineries along with great scenery. Best tour I have ever been on and I’ve been on a ton! Great lunch at a beautiful vineyard. Loved the views of the black sand beaches. 10/10!

We had a fantastic time with John, visiting two wineries and Muriwai Beach (great views of kite-surfers, gannets, and big ocean waves). Had a tasting and tour of the facilities at Kumeu River and a second tasting at Westbrook. John really added to our experience with his deep knowledge of all things wine-related, but he also had an answer for any question we asked about New Zealand. Vehicle was clean and very comfortable. Prompt pickup from the centrally located Sky City Hotel. This was a great afternoon activity for our first day in New Zealand. Highly recommended.

Very fun! There were 10 of us and it allowed for some great bonding with the rest of the group. Lots of great wine and we came out with so much new knowledge on wine.

We had a great tour with NZWinepro. We visited three very interesting wineries and had a wonderful lunch at one of them. We also saw other sights in the area and learned lots about New Zealand and wine. Very worthwhile tour and a great value.

From pick up in the morning until drop off in the evening, this was an all-around lovely trip. We stopped at multiple wineries and sampled many different ones at each stop. The lunch at one winery was well done. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave us interesting information about wine making in New Zealand. The stop at the black sands beach was perfect and not at all rushed. I hugely appreciated that our driver did not seem to mind if we lingered at various stops, making the day feel truly special. I wish we had been able to sample the honey, but we did not on our particular excursion.

Hi Sally, Thanks for your wonderful review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your day out and that the inclusions and pace worked for you. Sorry about the honey, I had to swop vehicles at the last moment and the honey box was in the other one. I do hope you'll follow NZWINEPRO™ on Facebook or Instagram where I post things of interest we find on our tours. All the best and thanks for your great review. John McFarlane
