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.

Fabulous trip with a fabulous guide, Matt. He was passionate about kayaking, about Sydney and about Australia- a great combination! We loved the trip and Matt provided clear instructions and much needed encouragement when the going got a bit tougher. We always felt like we were in good hands and Matt knows the harbour like the back of his hand 😂go raibh maith agat Matt- hope to see you in Ireland

Great morning out on the water with Matt. What a stunning way to see the harbour and great to talk with someone who knows and cares loads about Sydney, its history and its people. Thank you Matt.

My American friend, 14-year-old daughter and I spent a glorious winter’s morning kayaking with Matt. He is a wealth of knowledge and is truly passionate about the harbour and its history. In addition, Matt was excellent at managing our group of eight kayakers with varying skill levels and a wide range of ages (teen to 50s). I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the experience and highly recommend kayaking with Matt, whether you’re a tourist like my friend or a Sydneysider like my daughter and me.
