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.

My husband and I adored our time doing through the Tim Wilson gallery and were mesmerised by his beautiful work. We're not usually huge art gurus but you can't help but be awed by these paintings. Rachel was such a lovely host and brought deeper meaning and significance to every piece by sharing the backstories and helping us to recognise and appreciate each detail and technique. It was also very special to be in Tim's very home as we soaked in his beautiful work. We would highly recommend this to anyone, it is not to be missed!

An extraordinary gallery, filled with love and amazing artwork. We had little idea of what a treat we were in for when we made our arrangements.

There are many many landscape painters in New Zealand. A lot are good, a few are excellent and then there is Tim Wilson. In my opinion a visit to this gallery will confirm that you are in the presence of unique works by a master painter.
Having spent 35 years in the arts responsible for half a dozen galleries that mounted circa 700 exhibitions by hundreds of artists I can confidently say that Tim Wilson's collected works should be mounted in a dedicated public gallery that is accessible to all. I don't recall seeing better realist landscape works.

Being in the private studio where Tim sat and painted his otherworldly masterpieces would have to have been the absolute highlight. What a privilege to hear about his life and how he created such a unique and powerful effect in his works. To feel his presence in the rooms he shared his love, laughter and life, then delivered it with such an open generous spirit to us all. Thank you Vaj for loving him so much and giving us this very special opportunity. It has filled my heart today.

A fantastic experience! Tim's art is incredible, the paintings come alive in a way that no other art does. Rachel is a wonderful host and has so much knowledge to share.

Tim’s art is out of this world and to see it in the setting of his magnificent home was such a privilege. Rachel was the perfect host and it was intriguing to hear the stories behind his paintings. We look forward to seeing it again with friends in future visits to Queenstown .

An absolutely wonderful way to spend an hour. Rachel was so warm and knowledgeable and viewing Tim's works in his home was extremely moving. They are the most magnificent art works I have ever had the opportunity to view.

One of the most personal and moving visits ever to an art gallery and work space. I was lucky enough to meet the late Tim Wilson and every year looked forward to seeing him and hear the techniques behind his simply exquisite work.
New Zealand lost a world class artist and the curated visit to his home hosted by his friend Rachel and his husband Vaj is superb.

Being in a home is always a treat, especially one so stylishly designed and decorated. To hear Tim's story and see his art work, especially when lighting is manipulated is like a magic experience unfolding before your eyes.

And then to see the landscape through the huge windows that inspired Tim all his life - very special.
Thank you Rachel and Vaj. Memorable and beautiful.

Thank you so much Rachel and Vaj for such a wonderful unique experience for my clients. Tim Wilson Gallery is always the highlight of my art and wine tours in and around Queenstown and a fabulous way the finish the day. Tim's work has "WOWed" so many of my clients over the years, even those who thought they had nothing in common with art. A must thing to do!!!

Seeing Tim's artwork is absolutely amazing and seeing it (again) today was an incredible way to finish off our Queenstown holiday.
I'm not usually the kind to visit galleries but Tim Wilson's artwork is just an incredible must-see and leaves you truly mesmerised by it's beauty and true liveliness.
