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.

    Just another darn tram ride up a hill...I thought.
    Absolutely gorgeous day.
    Tram ride to a box of delights.
    Nice old tram but the top is special
    We were first riders and it is well worth the effort to avoid queues

    The Interislander is a great way to travel between the North and South Islands. These are huge boats and you can even bring your own car. It’s about a three hour trip between Wellington and Picton. I tend to get a bit seasick, but not if I’m able to stand outside and enjoy the gorgeous views. I’ve seen plenty of seabirds, including an albatross, and dolphins following along side. I was in NZ in 2023 but didn’t take the Interislander this trip. I have a few times in past visits.

    We used this ferry to visit Eastbourne for the day. The tickets were easy to purchase; there is a ticket office near the waterfront close to where the boat is. I found the staff onboard friendly and helpful.

    WE had a little difficulty finding our way to the ferry port in Picton due to road works closing some roads but arrived fine and the checking in system was very quick. Then we had to wait some time to board due to an incident with a truck leaving the ferry on its arrival. Eventually, left about 30 minutes late but arrived more or less on time.
    The ferry is not up to the standard of those on European routes, being clearly designed mainly for the freight traffic it carries. The lounge area was fine, and the food provided was OK if nothing special. The staff were friendly and helpful.
    Booking online was fairly straight forward, and we felt the prices were probably pretty reasonable.

    There were 4 couples in a mini bus and Anthony showed us all the sights in 4 hours with great commentary and answers to questions. We got out of the bus many times, including at 2 high-point lookouts, 2 beach-side viewpoints, the world's steepest street, the University and the Weta Cave workshop for "Lord of the Rings" film-making. Anthony pointed out the film director's, Peter Jackson's, house and lots of other trivia. All passengers agreed that the tour was excellent value.

    We had a wonderful day of food, wine and touring. Aaron is very knowledgeable and entertained us all day with stories and information about New Zealand and the Martinborough area. We enjoyed all the stops that Aaron set up for us - the gourmet food and wine we sampled were superb and the lunch was 5 star! I highly recommend Aaron and this tour.

    We had an amazing private tour during our honeymoon with Tom! Tom and I emailed back and forth to come up with a somewhat custom tour to visit the Cape Palliser seal colony and then we added in some fantastic stops along the way. He picked us up at the cruise port and took us across the Rimutaka Crossing to Martinborough to Poppies for a delicious wine tasting and the best charcuterie board we have ever had. Then he drove us out to Cape Palliser to see the lighthouse and the seal colony. He even made time to stop by Kaitoke Regional Park where they filmed Rivendell in the Lord of the Rings. Tom even brought his camera to make sure he got some great photos of us during our experiences. We highly recommend taking a tour with Tom!!

    The Wildfinder bike hire company, which has locations in and around Wellington, has a small location at the Remutake Rail Trail start. The young staffer was friendly and very knowledgeable. It was an overcast and potentially rainy day and we were on the verge of bagging the ride. He convinced us to get on the ebikes and go, and it was a great ride with typical New Zealand rail trail scenes (tunnels, swing bridges, gorges). The rain never came and we thoroughly enjoyed the ride (20km to the end and back).

    I caught the Airport Flyer with my four young nephews both from the airport to Wellington central and back again. Both times the drivers where friendly and helpful, the service was on time, the bus clean and the route great. However, it was not really the service the advert says. On the website the service is advertised as a bus specifically designed for airport travel with leather seats and extra luggage storage. Really it is just the same layout as a standard travel or city school bus - complete with all the usual warnings. The 10x a normal bus price extra was worth it for the airport pick-up and drop-off while travelling with 4 kids, but if I was on my own a local bus with the 10 min walk to the bus would have been much better value.
