We took this trip as a company "Team Building" trip - my team had done a similar trip before and wanted to go again. It was a great trip with a good variety of wine makers visited. Our guide/driver was friendly and very knowledgeable about Waiheke. The vineyards we visited had a good selection of different wines and people who... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour which was hosted by Wayne. He picked us up from the ferry terminal and in addition to the wineries visited he gave us an informative tour of the island. Highly recommended.

I really can't say enough of our lovely tour - from the knowledgeable guide, to the impeccably chosen wineries and from the scrumptious lunch spot to the colorful history - it was all amazing. We highly recommend this tour.

chose this because we wanted a small personal tour - but they mostly are on Waiheke. It was worth the tour for the first winery we went to where I learned more about chemical-free wine-making than I have in 20 other tours and met a really really passionate slighly crazy wine-maker.The lunch (not included) at Casa Miro was a great...

Hi Mark G, thank you for your review. Having 12-seaters means we can provide more personalised tours and visit the smaller boutique vineyards such as Jurassic Ridge - yes, Lance is a fount of knowledge and what he doesn't know about wine is not worth knowing!

This might be the wine talking but it was a perfect day spent on the Waiheke Island Wine Tour. The ferry pick up was very straightforward and Graham toured us around the island giving a sense of some of the local beaches and houses as we got to the first winery. I wish I had taken better note of the... More
