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.

    Lovely to see the penguins, and the center volunteers were excellent!. Some of the tourists were idiots (disrespectful to the guides, not following instructions) and made the experience less enjoyable for others, but the Center itself and the penguins were absolutely wonderful.

    We really wish they would BAN CARS in the area. We saw several penguins almost get run over! Once by a bus and once by some Asian tourists who didn’t even notice. It was awful to think about, but with a relatively simple solution of banning vehicles, the problem would be solved. I hope someone from the Center and the Gocernment implements this suggestion.

    Amazing very tidy business. The highlight was going into the pit and Judy as our guide made the day she was great and had us laughing lots

    We popped in for a quick drink but as soon as you go through the door you are transported to a Belgian bar with amazing beers. The quick drinks turned into 2.5 hours, even then we didn’t want to leave, a must visit for any visitors to Oamaru

    We have taken a few flights with NOAC (also called the Waitaki Flight School) and have thoroughly enjoyed each of them. Sven is an excellent pilot, and the scenery of North Otago is among the most beautiful anywhere, with the combination of blue sea, green fields, brown mountains and white clouds making for stunning photographs. For anyone interested in trying their hands at flying, he also offers a chance to take a quick flying lesson, which for me was one of the most exciting things I have done, fulfilling a lifelong dream.
