  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.
We perform checks on reviews.
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.

    This was the only day of our three-week trip that had a slight rain. However, the views from the train were still gorgeous and our guide provided us with an abundance of options to enjoy the area. This is the location for much of the Lord of the Rings filming. That alone should be an incentive for many. We loved the abundance of waterfalls, lakes and streams. The alpine rain forest was beautiful.

    It was a great trip, and Pete was a wonderful guide and driver. The views were spectacular and the sheep farm was an interesting stop. Pete had great stories to tell and was very knowledgeable about everything we saw.

    Sue was our guide and she was fantastic! Our flight the day before was cancelled so we were late arriving to Christchurch and we missed our city tour. She still took us around after our Arthur’s Pass tour. And we are vegan and she put us on to a super restaurant too. You will love a tour with Sue!

    We had a wonderful tour with Graeme as our driver/guide. Yes, it is a long drive but the scenery is well worth it. We chose the pre-ordered lunch and both my husband and I enjoyed the selection. An added bonus was that we were able to see 2 keas outside the cafe. I must give kudos to Graeme for his patience with 2 of our fellow cruisers on the bus. They wanted to go to sites that apparently their third party vendor said was included but as Graeme pointed out it would possibly make us late for the last shuttle back to the ship. One of them constantly yelled out to finish Graeme's sentences. He handle all like a pro & managed to squeeze in one of their requests. I would certainly recommend this shore excursion by Leisure Tours.

    My first trip to NZ. This has been delightful experience. Beautiful views, just the right amount of hikes and rests (some of us also did a jet ski boating along the way -- super fun!). The guide Clive was experienced, knowledgable, friendly... Highly recommend !

    Dermot was highly professional and knowledgable. He was safety-conscious, and navigated the mountainous roads and one-lane tracks with ease. His vehicle was spacious, clean and comfortable. He knew the best places to eat, rest, take walks and snap good photographs. E.g. we stopped at Castle Hill, which looked exactly like a Lord of the Rings scene, although it was not the actual set. While he was a good conversationist as he drove, he also let us take naps when we needed it. He was accommodating towards our requests to tweak the itinerary, including last minute requests, like jet boating on the Waimakariri River. As a result we enjoyed our day trip to the Pass!
