For wine lovers and non wine drinkers - a must do intimate experience!

Our guide was excellent. Shared so much information about the island, the challenges and the future. He seemed to know the wineries that we visited very well as he tried to make sure each of our experiences were on point with what we liked. Very hands on experience in a small group setting which made it great for having an intimate experience. If you are a wine drinker, this is definitely a must do. I am not a wine drinker but even I enjoyed the tour. Waiheke Island is absolutely beautiful and we had an amazing time with our small group. Book your next experience here! You wonʻt be disappointed.

Absolutely fantastic experience. We were able to see some wineries that none of the other groups were attending and enjoyed every tasting throughout the day. A lovely way to learn of Waiheke Island and it’s many wines.

Bad start and end. Good middle

We loved the boutique vineyards and the wine was delicious. The reason for 3 stars is we arrived on the dock on time and our driver was 30 min late picking us up, we were getting ready to make other plans when he showed up. He said he would make it up to us by buying us some lunch (pizza) and after he dropped the others off he would take us to another vineyard. He went back on his word and dropped us off with the others. The day had a rocky start but Overall it was a fun day but I don’t like to be given empty promises.

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed the important part of tour being the wine and vineyards. A few logistical anomalies popped up as the rest of the group came out on an earlier ferry as we had asked everyone to do as it was a busy day. We started the tour and came back and picked you up. I took you to extra wineries at our expense to compensate for the short wait. We provided the snacks I promised but as one lady was gluten free I decided against the pizza which I should have made clear to you. The rest of the group gave great feedback. I hope the rest of your trip in NZ goes well. Cheers, Grant
