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.

Have to rave about this experience. Our driver Lisa was superb - 5 star! We had a very comfortable van for seven of us. Our day excursion took us to, a lavender farm, Lake Takepo and Lake McKenzie. Stopping along the way at Farley to a famous pie shop. Little wonder it is famous. Had a pork belly and apple pie (no fat) and on top of this pie was a large piece of crackling. Best pie I have ever eaten. Of course there were other pies with a difference. It was a full day but so fantastic.

Dawn was absolutely the most lovely lady! Amazing service, she went above and beyond. We really couldn’t recommend her highly enough! We used her services several times during our stay in Blenheim.

This company is fantastic, I cannot speak highly enough of their service and care.

Transport from Picton/Blenheim is very limited if you don't have your own vehicle. An experience a few weeks prior to using this service, I went with a Blenheim shuttle company who left me stranded at Marlborough airport pickup and offered nothing to help me get to Picton after forgetting me.

In comparison, Driving Miss Daisy Marlborough was excellent, they are totally reliable and very personable. Shall definitely be travelling with them next time, thank you!

We forgot to rent a car when visiting Blenheim & the airport was sold out so we took a cab to our hotel - yikes!!! Cab fare was crazy high! The Front Desk Agent at the hotel recommended using Driving Miss Daisy as an alternative to the cabs as they were a bit cheaper. The first night, Sheryl came & picked us up for dinner. We paid in advance for her to return us to the hotel after dinner - & she came within 5 minutes of us calling. She advised that they offer half and full day services as well if we wanted to use them for wine tasting. We reserved for the next day! Gavin came to pick us up - right on time - & took us to a few vineyards as well as the airport. He was social & told us a lot about the area.
Next time I'm in the area, I'll most definitely be using Driving Miss Daisy!

Dawn was fantastic and we hired her every evening for our stay in Blenheim.

Dawn even went to get our basic shopping whilst we went out for dinner on the first evening and then came back to collect us from the restaurant.

We booked Dawn to take us back to the airport and she bought all four of us a little gift.

She is absolutely the best and a star

We used Dawn and her company several times in the Blenheim/Renwick area. They were good value, prompt, very courteous and solicitous. The vehicles are clean and distinctive. Really everything you could want in a taxi service, and more. Highly recommended
