    Waiheke Island
    Stop: 6 hours - Admission included
    If you are coming from Downtown Auckland, you will need to catch the 10am Fullers ferry to Waiheke Island.  Please arrive at the terminal 20 minutes before your ferry departs as ferries fill up quickly (especially during the Summer months) and tickets are sold on a first in line first served basis. Your tour guide will meet you when you arrive at Matiatia Ferry terminal at approximately 10:35am and will be holding a WaiTiki Tours sign. If you are already on Waiheke Island just let us know where you're staying and we'll arrange to pick you up from your accommodation. Your tour will drive you through the main village of Oneroa and past Oneroa beach. We will take the back streets past gorgeous ocean views and stop at Palm Beach where we will take a brief bush walk down to a lovely lookout with views stretching out to The Coromandel Peninsula & Great Barrier Island. You will then have a chance to meet some lovely local Waihetians when we visit a local cafe for your morning tea or coffee or if you are booked on a Saturday we will visit Waiheke's local craft/farmers market.  Your tour will then make it's way to a small boutique vineyard for a wine tasting.  The quality of wine is award winning and we are sure you will love it.  After your wine tasting we will take a scenic drive past Waiheke's longest beach and onto your next stop for lunch (not included in tour price)  This will be at another beautiful Waiheke vineyard and will be where you can enjoy a second tasting. Your tour will then make its way past some more breathtaking scenery and onto the third boutique vineyard for the final tasting.   Pending seasonal availability you may also have the opportunity to taste some local extra virgin olive oil/honey, feed some local Alpacas by hand,  sample some local Craft beer or enjoy a swim at a local beach. At the end of your tour your guide will either drop you at the ferry terminal for your 4pm ferry back to Auckland or your Waiheke Island accommodation, or if you wish to spend the last few hours of daylight in Oneroa Village or at another vineyard enjoying the sunset then it's only a short walk to the ferry terminal. Small groups make for fun and flexibility so you can really get to know your fellow travellers. You will be taken off the beaten track where the big buses can't venture.

We had a wonderful day exploring the island and enjoying great wine. The views and the beaches were great. We were the only two for the tour and when she found out we were bird watchers also, she tailored the tour to include some great wildlife areas. I highly recommend this

We had an enjoyable trip around Waiheke Island with lots of wine tasting, which we highly recommend. Nat was a great tour guide who takes you to the best spots on the island, which I’m sure you would miss out on if you were with a larger tour group.

My wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable tour with great commentary on the life and the scenery of Waiheke Island. The wineries were equal to any of the best in Sonoma or Napa. The van is in great shape and very comfortable. This tour is a great value.
