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.

The road over Takaka hill is windy to say the least, but Tracey drove so that the journey was most comfortable for her passengers. The service was on time at intermediate stops. Thoroughly recommended.

A long drive but worth it for a beautiful walk along the beach and around the craggy roacks. Seals were sleeping just on the beach.

We made a booking months out for the golden bay coachlines to take us back to our car after we finnished the able tasman walk. They then emailed yesterday to say they have canceled and refunded our tickets as they decided to change their time table. Instead of moving our booking to the new time they canceled and told us we can go to their website to make a new booking on their new timetable. This new one was already booked out by the time I went to book this morning. So now struggling to find an alternative way back to our car whilst being tight on money and currently on holiday. Thanks for the stress.

Wilky picked us up at the end of the Heaphy Track. Stopped in Karamea for half an hour for some much needed good coffee and a great home made pie after the hike. Very informative about the area on route to Westport.

A driver named Steve picked us up after our 5 day hike on the Heaphy Track. We were his only passengers so he gave us the history of the area and stopped along the way so we could get something to eat besides freeze dried meals! He even waited while we got ice cream then dropped us at our hotel doorstep. Amazing service. Highly recommend!

I used this service for transport to and from the Abel Tasman track at Wainui, and for a day trip up to the Heaphy track trailhead and Rockville. Colin the driver was exceptionally helpful and friendly and told me lots of interesting things about the local area and history. The mini van was clean and on time and I felt very safe, comfortable and looked after. Thank you Colin!!
