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.

Fantastic trip to Castle Point Lighthouse and Masterton. Pamela's local knowledge was extensive and very informative. Her choice of Le Gra winery for their platter lunch was amazing, with the platter being the best we've had anywhere in N.Z. Totally recommended.

The tour of Leafyridge Olives. Seeing the harvesting method and the oil press was amazing. Like being on Country Calendar.
We took away lots of infused oils to experiment with when we get home.

A short notice wine tour for my wife and I.
Pamala was very obliging and had a good all-round knowledge of the region and wineries we visited.
We were the only two on the tour and it gave an intimate feel.
The van was comfortable too.

We won our tour with Pamela from a competition. Pamela took us on a lovely tour around various wineries and olive groves, taking in the wines, oils and beautiful scenery. We had a fantastic day out, and would highly recommend the experience to anyone wanting to see what the Wairarapa has to offer!

Ten of us had a couple of days in Martinborough and Masterton visiting a range of wineries and a couple of splendid gardens. Pamela was very helpful with the planning and made a number of very good suggestions for visits, she kept us on schedule, and provided us with information on the area without being intrusive. She was very helpful and considerate throughout.

Overall it was a great visit to the Wairarapa - we met a range of very interesting people, visited a number of great wineries and two super gardens. Pamela's shuttle was very comfortable and spotless.

Thoroughly recommend Wai Tours.

Pam offered a prompt, super warm and friendly service for our large group in Masterton to head to boutique winery Le Gra and back. Would definitely recommend, and book again when we're back in Masterton. Thank you, Pam!

Pamela from Wai tours was fantastic. She was so warm and accommodating. She took my son and I out to the star gazing at stonehenge and even stayed with us. Looking after us so well, as I have to use a mobility scooter. Which was popped in the back of the lovely comfortable bus with no problems. It was at a very reasonable price too. I highly recommend her.
