  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    Our excursion was awesome! John is an excellent host and tour guide. His knowledge of wines, New Zealand's history and current happenings lead to conversations during our drive around the coastal area. Everything was just perfect: chocolates, cheeses, lunch and the wines! Our group of four joined John for two different tours during the week. I highly recommend John and NZ WINEPRO to anyone visiting New Zealand for a wonderful experience.

    We had an unexpected 2 days in Auckland and I messaged Gesa and she put together a little itinerary for us and we had a fantastic time! She's an excellent guide and filled our days with memorable experiences.

    Karthik, our tour guide from ExperienceKart in New Zealand, was unlike any other I've ever had - this man is caring, eager to please, knowledgeable, patient, flexible, accommodating and most importantly treats you like family.

    The bus had free wifi, and even had cords to charge our phones (both Android and Iphone) seeing how some of us didn't bring them with us.

    After every stop, he asked if we enjoyed the experience and if we needed anything. I needed a lock for my suitcase and he took me to a hardware store to get one! Such amazing customer service - if you can book a tour with him in New Zealand, you definitely should!

    He picked up my two friends and I on time in a new air conditioned bus. No problem to pick us up at one location and drop us at another.

    He even had a little gift for each of us.

    The honey bees were amazing. Loved learning about how it was all done and seeing the live bees making the honey. The guide at the bees was very knowledgeable and the honey tasting was yummy. Bought an assortment!

    Horseback riding was incredible. The horses were so gentle and well behaved and the scenery was just like New Zealand - the most amazing I've ever seen and I've been all over the world! The staff offered to take pictures anywhere we asked and were very accommodating. We could trot, canter and do walks around the cones if we wanted.

    Chocolate tasting was yummy although the counter person was not very nice, the chocolate was great.

    Sculptureum was really something to see! So many interesting sculptures and artwork where you could walk around both inside and outside. The exhibits were exotic, well placed and humorous at times. Also the Italian restaurant there had food that was surprisingly very tasty.

    A ceramics store followed with local arts and pottery you could purchase followed by a "sweet surprise" from Karthik.

    Karthik was so accommodating! We asked him if he could take us to the airport the next day and then it turned out that UNITED airlines canceled our flight from Auckland to SFO so he just ended up taking us on tour of the city, seeing places we hadn't seen before.

    We ended up having 2 tours with Karthik - one he planned special just for us!

    A really wonderful experience and I highly recommend!

    It was so unexpected that our guide picked us up in a luxury vehicle with a basket of snacks and water. The attention to detail was much appreciated after the hectic self drive portion of our trip. Our journey included stops at a winery and sculpture garden for lunch and tasting. As we drove to our next stops, the guide kindly made an unplanned detour for another wine tasting and again for fresh oysters. We also visited Matakanas market area and bought chocolates, wonderful beaches, a pottery workshop, and enjoyed a gelato stop.
    Besides the personalized itinerary, the highlight was the awesome guide whose friendliness, commentary and knowledge added to our enjoyment. This was a luxury tour that I will not soon forget. Great experience!

    Such a great time thanks Saltwater Eco! My son had a personal lesson at Omaha beach with instructor Locke and he had a blast- Locke was awesome and helped my son get up on the board in no time. Beautiful white sand, clear water beach at Omaha to enjoy.

    Incredible trip! We needed an accessible tour for my daughter as she uses a folding wheelchair. Peter did an awesome job adjusting the trip to accommodate her and made the trip a very relaxing and informative experience. Sculptureum was better than expected and the views in the area were amazing. We highly recommend this tour company!
