De aanpak van Tripadvisor met betrekking tot beoordelingen
Voordat Tripadvisor-beoordelingen geplaatst worden, gaan ze door een geautomatiseerd trackingsysteem dat informatie verzamelt en de volgende vragen beantwoordt: hoe, wat, waar en wanneer. Als het systeem iets detecteert dat potentieel in tegenspraak is met onze communityrichtlijnen, dan wordt de beoordeling niet gepubliceerd.
Wanneer het systeem een probleem detecteert, wordt een beoordeling mogelijk automatisch afgekeurd, naar de junior bijdrager gestuurd voor goedkeuring, of handmatig beoordeeld door ons team van contentspecialisten die 24/7 aan de kwaliteit van de beoordelingen op onze website werken.
Ons team controleert elke beoordeling die op onze website geplaatst wordt en volgens onze bezoekers niet aan onze communityrichtlijnen voldoet.

Whilst we were looking forward to the Hawkes Bay Express unfortunately due to circumstances beyond their control the tour had to be conducted on a tour coach but be that as it may the tour itself was informative and interesting led by Will - the best guide ever. The engaging commentary was informative and our guide Will articulate and full of fun and facts. His commentary outlined the history of the1931 earthquake and the many aspects of life in the region such as its workforce, industries, lifestyle and culture.

It is a bus tour & John was our guide. Very knowlegeable & proud of the town.
We learned that Napier had an earthquake in 1931, destroying the town. They actually gained land mass & rebuilt the town in art nouveau style. That is the same style as old Los Angeles (think 1930’s). Due to once living in LA, I wasn't that impressed. We saw red stag along the way. Vineyards are plentiful by Hawkes Bay. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are popular in the Hawkes Bay region. From Te Mata (local mountain), we got a great overlook of the area. It was a good overview of the area.

Hi Trophy, thank you for your lovely review. Yes, I am very proud of my town and I am inclined to think I am knowledgeable about the area... modest. I note you mentioned art nouveau style, yes some of this present, but mostly Art Deco. I am pleased you modelled Napier against other cities. The main difference would be that we have more Art Deco in a concentrated area than any city on the Planet. Again, I am very pleased you considered the tour as a good overview of the area. As we commence our tours ahead of the other tours on offer on the day, we are able to cover more of the area for a greater overview. Thank you again for your review. Regards, John

Kristy was a great tour guide and very informative.
She drove us around the city and showed us the art deco homes of the 1930's.
Te Mata Peak was absolutely stunning and we spent a bit of time there for photos.
Kristy dropped us off in the town and we spent some time exploring on our own.
Napier and Hawkes Bay are lovely.
The only negative is sitting at the back of the van, I was unable to see much through the small windows, so I missed out on a lot.
There were very long queues for the shuttle to get back to the ship and a longer wait at the port to get through security.
Overall a good tour.

Hi Blonde, thank you for your great review. I am sorry to hear that you could not see from your seat. For those reading this, we operate factory Toyota Mini busses (vans). While we have never had a comment before in almost 20 years, I do take your point. The rear seat in any vehicle, is not a visual as the front seat. I must note,. the window (one long window) extends down the whole side of the van and finishes behind the rear seat. Yes, I imagine at any port the queues to get on and off the ship are long and security checks at the port are out of our control. I think you again for taking the time to review. Regards, John

We’ve been on several wine tasting tours over the years and this one was the best! John was a superb guide who was good company and really enthusiastic and knowledgable about each place on the tour. We learned a lot from him about the history of Napier and about each winery. We visited 3, and they all had something different to offer as an experience. The ale house was also good. In addition to tasting and learning about some excellent wines, we enjoyed a lovely platter, and the locations were superb. The souvenirs were a nice touch at the end of the day. A top notch tour and if we come back to Napier we’d do it again!

Due to the fact that our ship was in port for a shorter time and we could not partake in the full Art Deco, winery and brewery experience, we negotiated a shortened tour with this company outside of trip advisor. The owner promised to charge less due to the fact that the tour was shortened and we visited only one winery and brewery and had a driving tour of the Art Deco buildings. We were charged full price and the owner has not responded to multiple requests for a price adjustment.

Had the business end worked out, I would have given this tour a 5 star.

Hi Loretta. I am sorry to see that you were unhappy. I note on my records that you were on a sightseeing tour, and not a Wine tour as above. I also note there is some confusion around the use of the word refund. I have just pulled up all our emails. This followed your concerns around the shorter shore times. (shore times had been changing). In our email to you on Thursday, December 22, 2022 at 5:48 PM, we wrote (cut and pasted here..)......" If on the day, when you arrive, there is NOT enough time and we cannot complete the tour, a full refund will be issued". We had the time and we presented the tour in its entirety to you. This review is the ONLY correspondence from you since your email accepting the tour on the 24th Dec 2022. Your tour was the 22nd Jan 2023. Again, according to what I have found in my emails, I have NOT heard from you nor had any requests at all for a refund from you. I am disappointed that you did not contact us at all to discuss this matter. - John

When our cruise line delayed our arrival, we opted to book this tour directly. We negotiated a shortened experience at a reduced price. While the tour was enjoyable, there was no microphone in the van and some couldn't hear. Additionally, we were charged full price - not the agreed upon reduced price. Be careful booking directly with the tour operator.

We had a good time with our small group visiting the Mission Estate winery (yum!) and Church Road (OK) and then had a fun lunch and beer tasting afterwards. Thank you to our guide Kristi who waited for us when we were late in arriving-- but she had so much great info! The Art Deco tour ended up more of a drive down the streets of Napier, but the town is well worth a visit.

Hi Richard, Thank you for your great review. Yes, we visit great wineries. It is interesting with your winery comments.. and yes, everyone's taste is different, the Church Rd winery is a much, much more awarded winery of the 2. Some days the comments are either way. Wine is a very interesting experience. Again, I thank you for your review. - John

Overall, it was an enjoyable tour that actually lasted 4.5 hours. The small bus was waiting for our shuttle from the ship. We drove around the city learning the history and seeing featured Art Deco buildings. Picture taking opportunities are limited from the bus because of traffic and lack of parking. We were here on a Tuesday, and some places our guide would have taken us were closed. We did enjoy the visit to Mission Estate Winery, the founding winery in NZ, 1851. I bought a Rosé, and our driver John had logo wine glasses for everyone. Our next stop was a trendy gin bar where we enjoyed drinks and visiting with our fellow passengers. As a finale, we drove to the high point of the city for the view and more Art Deco homes. Being on the bus was now an advantage. The 1931 earthquake essentially created the city you see today.

Hi MtSiVie, thank you for taking the time to write a fantastic review. Yes, we advertise 4.00 hours and if our clients are willing, we will add to this, after all, you have come a long way to see our lovely city. Yes, on any day in any city, parking in busy city streets is not always possible, as you know, we do our very best. Thank you again for writing a review, they are always welcomed. - John

Excellent tour and commentary, Napier is a beautiful town, we were in a small group of 7 which was awesome as we were able to go to Te Mata peak which was amazing as we had the perfect weather, coaches cannot access this area.. Highly recommend a small shore excursion, we did the sightseeing and art deco tour, they also have a winter tasting and art deco tour. We finished in town and then we’re able to walk around till the last free ship shuttle of the day, it was such an amazing place.

Hi Pepper, Thank you for your fantastic review. Yes, the shore excursion is the most popular on any ship day. It is one of those tours that we have used for as long as the ships have been arriving here and will not change it as it is so, so very popular. Thanks again for your review. - John

One of the few tours that I could find which accepted a solo person. Tere was a phenomenal guide, full of energy and with a fantastic sense of humour. The first stop wine tasting set the tone for the day. The next stop had delicious cider and the food was much needed. Afterwards me moved on to gin and then beer. The day flew by and I had a fantastic time. If you're looking to spend a day having a good time, and you like a rather large variety of alcohols this is the tour for you. The vineyard was the only place that really went into explanation, the rest of the places you're on your own. The gin was a different offering for men and for women. As a lady, if you like botanical, flowery drinks this is for you. If not, you might not enjoy what's being offered. I ended up getting a completely different drink afterwards on my own dime but much preferred it. To each their own!

Hi JessHo... Thank you for your fantastic review. Yes, Tere is a fantastic guide, full of enthusiasm and knowledge. The stops as you mentioned are all very different and I would say "the pick of the local bunch". To explain the Gin stop to readers, you are each given 3 different glass full of Gins to try on the day. These are chosen from their range of about 200 Gins.. ? Wow.... Thank you again. - John
