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.

    Really nice walk through the valley and the rock formations are really beautiful. Be aware that way there is just up, and walk through the “river” basin could be chalenging for someone. Lookout is really steep hill so be prepared for little hiking.

    We hadn't planned on visiting but as we had a day spare and the weather was nice so we went. We are so glad we did. You have to park about 45 mins walk away but it is an amazing walk around the coast so take your time to take it all in. We didn't know what to expect but after seeing a few sunbathing seals you walk over the ridge and then can see so many you don't know where to look. They are so close you can see their chilled, sleepy faces. Please do not walk towards them or walk over the rocks as it scares them (as one man did). Some great scenery and time for family chats xxx

    Great eacaperoom experience, one of the best rooms i have tried! The room was beautifully decorated, truly an immersive experience. We did the Temple room, it was ranked a 7/10, which felt accurate. Some straight forward and some more tricky puzzles, but nothing far fetched or impossible. A great choice for a rainy or windy day in Wellington!

    Permanently closed in Wellington as the company now makes consumer virtual worlds and games. If you are looking to license the game for your arcade this can be done via Synthesis VR.

    Fun and interactive way to see Wellington. We chose the “spy mission” because it was our first time doing this. We had a blast. Some of the challenges were harder than others, but each destination took us somewhere new and gave us some history and insight to Wellington cbd. Ive been to Wellington a fair number of times, and I learned so much.
    Highly recommend this as a cost effective and fun way to self guide around Wellington cbd.
    It is a group activity, but we happily navigated with 2 people.

    Great escape room if looking for something to do in Wellington! We did the serial killer room on easy and had a blast (beating the record had nothing to do with it). Staff were great and really helpful, will be back to try beat some more!

    I highly recommend Dive Wellington! They were professional and very friendly. Our dive site was right across the street, so a super easy walk down to the water and we were off. Very cool marine life and our dive master showed us some cool things along the way.

    We were well looked after by the friendly team at Wellington Helicopters right from the start. They were professional and friendly. Great experience flying into Bay of Many Coves and we got a good view of our house in Karori too! Highly recommend.

    We did this as a cruise shore excursion - small group of 12. Nigel picked us up and drove out of Wellington, into the mountains. It was raining but that just made it more of an adventure. They outfit you with rain gear, boots, gloves and helmets, then a brief training session. Then they spend about 20 minutes in a practice area to make sure everyone knew what they were doing. They gave us the option of riding in a big 4 wheeler with Nigel driving, and after about 10 minutes on the quad, I chose riding with Nigel, which turned out to be awesome! I got the fun of flying around the mountains without having to worry about where I was going. Plus Nigel gave me lots of info on the area as we drove, so bonus tour guide! My husband had a blast on his quad bike, so a great time was had by all.
