    What to Expect
    Your personalized tour of Waiheke Island starts from Matiatia Wharf, where you will be greeted by your guide after you disembark the ferry from Auckland (ferry tickets are your own expense). Alternatively, pickup can by arranged on request from your Waiheke accommodation.

    Drive along the scenic northern route, taking in spectacular views of the Hauraki Gulf and beyond to the Coromandel Peninsula. The 6-hour itinerary includes visits to three boutique vineyards for premium wine tastings. At the third vineyard, savor a two-course lunch and glass of wine (or non-alcoholic beverage, if preferred). After lunch, you can choose to spend time in Oneroa Village at the craft shops and galleries, or visit a private art studio.

    Your guide will return you to the ferry terminal in time to catch the Fullers ferry back to Auckland. Alternatively, you can be dropped off at your Waiheke accommodation if you choose to stay on the Island longer and make your own way back to Auckland at your leisure.
