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.

Stunning Harbour. Easy to walk around and find what you need. A beautiful seaside town with character and lots to do. Amazing.

Overall, the trip was a very nice cruise but we had a huge problem with Great Sights leaving us on the island to go to unscheduled pick up of additional passengers for them to make more money.

This unscheduled pick up delayed our trip for over an hour, causing

delays to several of the passengers who had to meet flights and had other plans. Absolutely no reason why this company should’ve put themselves above the entire group of passengers they had on board for the day.

They Inconvenienced all the passengers in order for them to make a few more bucks. Completely utterly unacceptable my opinion. We had plans that afternoon that we had to cancel because our boat was late. Another gentleman was late to catch his flight. We don’t know if you made it or not? Great Sights were very unprofessional.

If u want a peaceful couple of days this is your place but 4 nights was way too long for us. A couple of nice bars at harbour and a visit to Russell is a definate must. Awful drive up from Auckland due to roadworks soured our trip plus book your accom in the harbour area. Not easy to do a quick visit to surrounding areas like we had hoped

This is a lovely place with traditional buildings still dominating the area.. We stayed in the town for two days and enjoyed walking around the harbour every day. The harbour itself is charming and the views across the bay are great.
