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 took this tour since we were on the Seabourn cruise ship. It was great being on this 70+ year old English lifeboat traveling to the rocky outcrops which the some of the seals hang out on. The captain and owner was entertaining and knowledgeable. We would recommend it highly.

    If you REALLY want to see New Zealand I would highly recommend Zig Zag Tours NZ! I completed the 45 day tour of the South Island recently. Grant and Jemma go to the most wonderful places and all you have to do is sit back in your comfy seat and enjoy the AWESOME views along the way. You can see so much more as a passenger as you travel along the very curvy but scenic roads of NZ. There is walking involved (15 min to 1.5 hour return), at some of the stops, if you want to see the some of the real SPECTACLES so be prepared for that. Walking poles are really helpful on the hilly or stair laden tracks. I cannot say enough about Grant and Jemma. They WORK SO HARD to make everyone's experience AMAZING. The tents were roomy and comfortable and held up in the several rain and wind events we encountered – no leaks! The food was good and nourishing and always ready on time. Grant has a good knowledge of the history, and flora and fauna of NZ and tells great stories. If Grant and Jemma don't know something Jemma is a whiz at getting you the information you need. If you are not so good at putting up your tent they will assist. JUST DO A ZIG ZAG NZ TOUR – you will not regret it!!

    What a treat! Taranaki is absolutely stunning and flying over Mt Taranaki with Jim is a must. The experience is unforgettable, exciting and breathtaking. Jim is professional, kind and friendly and makes even the most nervous passenger feel comfortable and safe! Thank you Jim, this was incredible!!!

    Matt guided us on the most amazing flight around part of the Alps. Absolutely breathtaking views and an exhilarating ride. Matt gave us very indepth information about the sights during the flight. I would highly recommend any of the flight packages Precision Helicopter Ltd offer.

    James from Egmont Travel took our family on a tour off the world famous Egmont Honey Factory. We all had a wonderful time getting an insight from James on how the whole process works from bee to jar. Thanks to the team at Egmont Honey for been so hospitable the kids loved it and I highly recommend adding this onto your trip to Taranaki.

    The North Egmont Visitor Centre is the starting point for several walks of different lengths and difficulties.
    We went up past the Ambury monument to a lookout point; that was far enough for a casual 90 minutes return trip, and was fairly steeply uphill (on steps) all the way.

    I signed up my son for a surf course with Daisy. The group of students was quite mixed - some beginners and some more advanced. She and her team was still able to give every student the required attention.
    In the 4 days the kids made really great progress. My son is now a very confident surfer!
    Thanks to Daisy and her team!

    I was lucky enough to spend a day's fishing on the Waiwhakaiho River at Balsom Park, New Plymouth. It is a delightful place - peaceful and tranquil. I booked a local fishing guide - Adam Priest - and he supplied me with all the gear I needed. I learnt so much about river fishing. For instance, the food the fish eat and where they feed in the river. We worked our way upstream crossing the river several times. It was a great experience! Adam was an amazing guide and very knowledgeable. Here is his website with a price guide. I did the half day trip but probably needed longer.
