Absolutely wonderful tour of a beautiful island. Graham was very knowledgeable and interesting to talk to. And the three wineries we visited were fantastic, and the wine was divine! I would go back in a heartbeat!

Jean answered all off my questions promptly. We visited 3 winery's and tasted a variety of wine. Wayne was very informative not only about the winery's but also the islands history. Their lunch recommendation was excellent. We caught the ferry over for the day and flew out that evening.

A great way to get a small taste of what Waiheke Island has to offer. With visits to wineries, craft beer breweries and an olive grove. This tour gives a little view of scenery along with the amazing tastes of 'Waiheke'

My nieces and nephew and I had a great time spending the day with Christine and visiting some of the wineries on the island. The tasting at Casita Miro was hands down the BEST!! And lunch at Cable Bay was a great way to end the day.

Despite Easter Sunday, our tour guide went above and beyond to ensure we had a memorable experience on our only wine tour in New Zealand! She was a local who obviously knew the area very well.
