Around Waiheke Tours is an owner operated business in its seven year and we are the only independent tour operating seven days a week, all year round, on Waiheke.

Our mission is to provide value for money tours to enable our guests to enjoy a fun relaxed day on beautiful Waiheke Island. We offer scenic wine tours as well as the original beer and wine tour.

We focus on small owner operated vineyards and a small micro-brewery and endeavor to give a personalized experience. We operate comfortable 18 seater buses and we visit vineyards that are not generally accessed by the large corporate operators.

We would love to have you as our guest on our unique island.

Please don’t feel that because we off Waiheke’s best value tours that we offer an inferior product.

Attention to detail was lacking from this tour. We had taken this tour previously with Graham and had no hesitation in booking again with friends but were disappointed with the overall tour and organisation. We booked a half-day tour and were confirmed with a 9.00am pickup from the ferry terminal on Waiheke. By 9;10 we asked at information within the... More

Thank you for your review. It is ironic that it should be titled "Attention to Detail". While we are disappointed that you arrived before the advertised of our tour but it was hardly our responsibility that you had misread the tour instructions. We clearly state on our website that all our tours have three times, the time the ferry departs... More

I booked a half day wine tour online and was met promptly at the ferry terminal by the guide, Graham. Turns out there was a slight overbooking and the bus was short a seat. As a result, and after some initial confusion, I was put onto a different bus and sent on what became more or less my own private... More

We did a half day wine tasting tour of Waiheke Island and it was great. We were picked up from the wharf by the bus - I think the driver was called Judith (but I have a terrible memory!) and she was brilliant in giving us general information about Waiheke Island before handing us over to the guide at each...

I booked for this tour online as I wanted to go around Waiheke in a relaxed manner with my husband. We took the ferry from Auckland to Waiheke and were received by our tour guide at the Matiatia ferry. Her name was Julie and she was very warm and extremely friendly. We were lucky to be in the company of... More

The tour guide picked us up from the town centre. We had a small introduction and headed off for the first winery where we each got a very yummy platter. Wine for the platter could be purchased. The second stop was a brewery and the last, a very picturesque winery & restaurant. The people in each winery were very friendly,... More

We chose the half day wine and craft beer tour... was such a great afternoon. Our tour guide Susie was very knowledgable and ensured we had a great time. We visited 2 wineries and a brewery we had plenty of time at each and didnt feel rushed at all. Would definitely recommend and hopefully be back soon!

Fantastic tour with a really friendly and informative tour guide who couldn't do enough to make sure we had a great day. Three different wineries visited, well chosen to show off the different types of winery on the island as well as the different landscape and views of Waiheke. Good weather, good wine, good guide and good company. What more... More

Always hard to start out with strangers on a wine tour. Luckily there were 8 people and got to know a little about the others along the way.
