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.

This was a perfect day. Bill was extremely informative, friendly, and funny. My husband and I thoroughly our tour with him and the others. He shared so much history and information on the environment. Having a local provide the tour was wonderful. Our visits to Lake Wanaka, Cardrona and Arrowtown were just fantastic. The stops were quick but gave us enough time to explore. The coach was comfortable.

This tour never happened. It was canceled due to vehicle problems, but the notification never got to me, and they never made certain it did, and so I waited an hour in the rain for a tour that never happened. I tried to call them, but they weren't answering their phone and seemed to have no concern about their client waiting for them to show up.

It was very heartbreaking after 9 years without one bad review to receive a one star for something like this. We messaged you a few days before via the booking portal to inform you that we have vehicle problems and gave you a few options including a full refund. It looks like you did not look at your messages and did not confirm with us directly the day before which is what we require when you booked, plus we also have no record of you calling. We know you received the message as you commented "due to vehicles problems" which you could have only known by reading the message. We are unsure about the "standing in the rain" comment as our pick up location has a covered roof. Next time you use an online booking system it's best to understand whats required from your end instead of hurting a business with negative feed back.

Kathy was a wonderful guide for this tour. Besides her extensive knowledge of the sites we visited, she shared what it is like for local people to live in New Zealand. She also took us to some beautiful places that only locals about. Thank you Kathy!

Highly recommend this tour. Wayne was a fun and informative guide, very personable and friendly. The pace of the day was leisurely yet we covered a lot of ground, saw all the highlights of the area without feeling rushed. Wayne gave us some great local knowledge and insights into the history of this beautiful area. We appreciated the free time to explore Wānaka and Arrowtown and Wayne’s recommendations of where to eat.
Very good value for money.

We had a great day. The bus was new, very comfortable and having a small group made it easy to get in and out to see the sights. Bill the driver was a local and knew so much about the area. Picked up right on time and delivered back after seeing some remarkable sights and enjoying a fabulous experience.

It’s a really nice day-trip, I’m lucky to join it in a good day, our guide Wayne hold everything well. Schedule is great, I think I didn’t miss any place on the way, and time is enough for every point. I’m also lucky to made some friends who also travel alone.

It was a great experience.
Our guide Bill was an amazing man. Very knowledgeable, humorous, and kind. He made our trip more exciting. The trip started from Queenstown, and we stopped at Cromwell, Wanaka, Cardona, Arrowtown, back to Queenstown. Every stop was remarkable and superb. It was fun!
