I gave this a 4 rating because of the scenery, the drive and driver and the wonderfully pleasant day we had. However, if I had to rate only the wines, I would give it an OK. The New Zealand reds that we drank were very "Young" as of 1 to 2 year vintage and therefore were not the best. The... 更多
If your goal is to simply drive the island and hit 3 wineries, then this service will probably serve the purpose--just OK. I was disappointed. I chose this service because of the mix of getting to some vineyards AND hitting some great places on the island for views and photo ops. From 11am to 4pm, we were allowed out of... 更多
We wanted to experience the wine trail out of Auckland, and a cruise ship passenger we met on board told us of Waiheke. We left on a ferry from the harbour to go to Waiheke then joined a very affable bus driver who took us to 3 wineries. The scenery was spectacular in each case; the wines were OK, and... 更多

This tour is a nice relaxing way to see some of Waiheke Island. Visited some lovely wineries and tasted some really nice wines. We felt that we could have visited one of the larger vineyards as well as there was certainly enough time. Nevertheless, we had a lovely day - thank you.

We really enjoyed our day with Waiheke Island Wine Tours. Wayne was a courteous host with a wealth of local knowledge told with great care. We liked the wineries chosen, in particular Peacock Sky with the wonderful food paring. That was a true revelation of how wine and food make great mates.

Our guide, Wayne, a long time Waiheke resident, was very knowledgable about the island and its vineyards and gave us a great overview of island life and history. We stopped at 3 vineyards for tastings. All were exceptonal, particularly Peacock Sky. And with just 7 in our group, it felt like a private tour. I would recommend this tour to... 更多

Excllent local guide with good local knowledge. A lovely day with a variety of styles of vineyards visited and some lovely food at Peacock Sky vineyard. One of the best wine tasting days we've had.

Enjoy wine in small groups, driving from vineyard to vineyard. We really liked our driver and all the different vineyards we visited. Good wine - from white wine to champagne. We didn't take the tour in the busiest tourist-season, so we went in smaller groups. Absolutely worth the money!

It was a very enjoyable boat ferry ride over and our tour bus was waiting for us. The wine tour included lunch and a scenic tour around the island. One of the wineries included a fairly steep hill climb but did provide a lovely view. The wines were quite good but on the expensive side.

Ok, so Myself and my wife Lynda booked this tour at the last minute after humming and haaring over the multitude of wine tours on offer on this island. We would not consider ourselves to be wine connoisseurs at all, and were at first hesitant, but finally we decided to go with this one as I saw the many positive... 更多

Wayne and Jean are both fantastic. Made us feel right at home. They have incredible knowledge and insight for every question you might have about Waiheke. The island itself is incredibly beautiful. We got to visit 4 very different wineries throughout the day and felt like we got a solid sampling (Obsidian, Peacock Sky, and Te Motu for tastings, and... 更多

I booked this tour for my sisters 40th birthday and 6 friends. We had the best day. Graham was more of a tour guide than we could of asked for, and the whole experience was amazing. We did 3 vineyards, cable bay - amazing setting and views, obsidian - amazing wine, peacock sky - the best experience around was the... 更多

Wayne's local knowledge of the island's history, eco system, plants, animals and of course winemaking was amazing. Very passionate and we appreciated visiting the smaller, boutique wineries and choosing where to have lunch. It was tough, so many amazing places to eat and the wine was fabulous. Loved it and would recommend to anyone visiting Auckland. Awesome day.
Dear Lisa E - Wayne has an amazing store of information in that head of his and we were glad... 更多
This was a fabulous day out, with a lovely guide. She was just filling in for them, but did a great job and took care of us. There was just three on the tour, my friend and I and one other. The three wineries were brilliant, and I had not been to any of these previously. By the end of... 更多
