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.

*Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.

    Kelvin, our driver was marvelous, he knew of our ship's 1 hour earlier departure even before he arrived. Family/friend trip for 8 and our mobility impaired folks were well accommodated by him. Fantastic sights, awesome commentary, great suggestions to tailor the trip to what we wanted to see/do . I highly recommend this company...and an extemely delicious lunch was provided! Fantastic time had by all!

    Our family had a wonderful day with Aaron who was very knowledgeable on the history of Wellington. Aaron was so attentive and engaging, took some great photos for us and made special effort to make the day fun for our 5 year old. The food at the lunch spot that he recommended was amazing too. Highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Wellington.

    Earlier this year my wife and I went on this wine tour. Absolutely marvellous! Tom was the perfect host, picking us up from our hotel In Wellington and looking after us superbly throughout the day. We were in New Zealand - visiting from the UK - for several weeks and there were lots of highlights but the Martinborough Wine Tour was right up there - a truly memorable day!

    We started the tour at C’est Cheese in Featherston and then on to the Le Gra Vineyard in Masterton - run by Brian and his lovely family - excellent wine and excellent food! After this we went to Greytown Honey - wonderful tasty honey and we couldn’t resist buying some. Then on to Poppies Vineyard in Martinborough - a different experience and some lovely wines. We went back to Wellington via Kaitoke Regional Park where the Rivendell scenes from the Lord of the Rings films were shot. Stunning!

    We had a wonderful day that we will never forget. If you are planning to be in the Wellington area for any time at all we strongly recommend that you contact Tom at Kaewa Tours for a memorable experience.

    An amazing trip, Tom is so knowledgeable about everything in Wellington and showed us loads of things before we even left the city.

    It’s a stunningly beautiful drive out of the city and a poignant stop at a WWI site before dropping into the winelands.

    Our first stop was probably our highlight as we stopped off at Le Gra. A small place run by a family and in a quiet side road……….heaven. The staff were amazing and after a few pictures we were told about the wines by Brian. We then had a very tasty lunch and a look around the vines. Would highly recommend this place.

    Our next winery was Johner Estate, proper in the sticks, but so nice. Great tastings from the really knowledgeable young lady. I was talking proper BS now so was loving it.

    Our last stop was in Martinborough, a place called Poppies, we had a few photos in the vines before sampling a few of the liquid goods. Again, the staff are so knowledgeable, they seem to know a lot more than me and I have been tasting wine for a lot longer than them.

    We then headed back to Wellington. What an experience which was for my 40th birthday and worth every penny. Tom is a very easy guy to talk to and knows answers to pretty much anything you ask him.

    What a stunning tour, would highly recommend to anyone want to see the winelands of Wairarapa.

    Wonderful day. Great introduction to the Kapiti coast. Tom was great at tailoring my day to include my interests. I had a great time and felt comfortable traveling with him as a female solo traveler.

    Tom was an excellent guide. We covered the city with photo opportunities at all of the viewpoints. He also took pictures from some special places. It was a great day.

    A great day out viewing the kapiti coast, very relaxing and informative. Stopping at the car museum, chocolate shop, a wonderful lunch at a Cafe, watched and fed the eels and a stop at a local brewery for some beer tasting. Thank you we all enjoyed our day

    Very organized, with great follow up on arrangements. They had a plan for the highlights and were flexible with our specific requests. Very friendly, very knowledgeable on history and local information. The St Paul's church stop was fascinating and not on the typical tour list so great job.

    We had the best time traveling around with Tom. First and foremost his driving was impeccable on the windy streets of Wellington! We could not have done that kind of driving ourselves. Everyone we met at each of the establishments were fond of Tom and therefore fond of us. That made a huge difference than if we had done this on our own. We love food tours and they are the best ways to get to know a city. This tour with Tom goes down as one of the best!

    Simon was excellent. He was waiting for us, had excellent knowledge of Wellington and Martinborough. He knows the culture of the Māori and the nation. He lives in Wellington so when one winery was crowded, he took us to another. Great lunch recommendation and a lovely day!

    The whole day was amazing despite the slight drizzle. We were collected from home and driven to Kapiti where we did quite a few activities. Cider tasting and ice cream made from foraged plants was an amazing experience. Roasting our own coffee was a highlight. Sitting on heated concrete seats while eating lunch was so warming while we sipped on wine and had a lovely lunch. Tom was informative and very entertaining. I would recommend this trip with Tom as he was a great host. Thank you.

    Highly recommend Kaewa Tours! We were visiting the area for the first time from the US and needed a private driver. Tom setup a Zoom to meet us live and review our needs. He setup a customized daily itinerary for the family ensuring that we got to our destinations timely and incorporated several tours along the way. He was prompt, flexible, professional, knowledgeable, knew everyone and most importantly had a great sense of humor. He became just an extension of our family. We thoroughly enjoyed New Zealand and were lucky enough to have Tom guiding us.

    This was a great tour of a few of the craft beer breweries around Wellington. As we were the only couple on the tour, it was more personalised for us and we could pick and choose where we wanted to visit. Our guide (so sorry but I have forgotten his name!) looked after us well and we had great conversation and enjoyed the stories shared. We really enjoyed sampling all the different kinds of beer on offer and we finished off with a traditional beer at a traditional pub. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour.
