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.

    We went here in February 2024, even though Tripadvisor keeps showing the date as January. This is the 3rd time I have had to do this Review.
    We selected the Experience Pass which was valid for 2 days and included a guided tour and a Cultural Performance. The guided tour provided headsets, so we were easily able to hear the tour guide at all times. Shane was very good and full of information which he explained clearly. The Cultural Performance was excellent and very well presented with photo opportunities with the performers afterwards.

    You have the option of a long or short walk. The view was worth the walk. It is mainly uphill on the way up, which can be challenging for older people, but easily 30 mins each way on the short track to lookout point.

    Went there for Xmas day service- great vicar who kept the service short and relevant. The church itself is beautiful- stone with stunning stained glass windows. The graveyard is worth a look too

    It was a 21km walking loop with 750 metres of uphill. We did the lookout extension between orongo bay and russell - but i dont recommend it as a must do.

    the section from paihia to opua goes along rocks and boardwalks. it needs to be low or a few hours either side of low tide. it winds in and out of bays. its not well marked after the bridge and then follow the trail and turn right about ten metres after the white fence.
    the boardwalks along the trail are great and its very diverse from coastal, to lovely forest, raupo, mangroves. the last 8km was a disappointing as it seemed to lose the trail and we were walking beside a road, or a scramble up a fenceline.

    Enjoyed lunch in Russell and then ferry back to Paihia. i recommend the walk for any moderate fitness and its a great way to see the area

    The Propeller from HMNZS Canterbury that was decommissioned in 1971 and sunk as a dive wreck in 2007. Worth a look if you are in Paihia

    It is an interesting time walk learning the history of Waitangi and Pihia
    However t wad told that the time walk started at the treaty house and you have to pay to go into it.

    Also some of it was confusing unless you downloaded the app af some of the markers are accross from the sights
