Jean worked with us before the trip so that we were able to enjoy the full tour without holding the group back. Wayne's authentic knowledge of Waiheke island (and its... More

Visited 3 small vineyards and sampled their wines. Staff at each vineyard were very friendly and provided good information about each wine.

Very well planned trip with sightseeing and wine tasting and opportunites to dine and do a bit of shopping. I really enjoyed Christine's thoughful and professional attitude. It is fun to learn from someone who is a native of the island; she gave a wonderful personal perspective to the commentary. The vineyards were beautiful and the wine tasting was educational... More

We did an all-day Waiheke Island gourmet food and wine tour from Auckland. We rode a ferry over (and back) and were transferred to a van with 2 other couples for the tour. Our driver was very nice and gave lots of information. We visited three different wineries, ending with a gourmet lunch at the last one. All the venues... More

Graham our guide was informative without being boring. He gave us a good background on how the island had developed over the years and continuing into the future. We were also shown and given a good bit of knowledge about the surrounding islands and points of interest. The wineries were all different in there approach to showcasing their wines and... More

Just a short ferry from Aucklands CBD to the beautiful Waiheke, this tour is a must. The three wineries we visited throughout the day were absolutely brilliant, boutique in size but bursting with character. Christine our guide for the day was amazing and knows the island like the back of her hand. This tour should not be missed.
