This tour was amazing!
Staff was excellent and understanding. Didnt show up for my original booking date and they obliged by moving me to next day. In all a great experience.
This tour is well worth it and such an interesting Island. The coach driver/tour guide certainly knew the information to share and made it such an interesting time. Very keen to go back and stay for a few days and enjoy the activities such as walking,kayaking and sailing!
Doing what: Waiheke Island Tour from Auckland
Bus driver was every informative. I just wish we had more time at each stop.
Tour was fantastic! Waiheke island was beautiful!
Excellent well organized tour. Professionally managed but lots of fun and laughs. As a NZ Gold Card hHolder though, I wasn't told that I didn't have to pay for the ferry from Auckland to Waiheke. Staff at the terminal had to inform me. But it was good value anyway.
The tour is great!
A very enjoyable day that allows you to get a feel for the island aboard the bus and also spend time at 2 wineries, a microbrewery and an olive oil plant. There is also the option to stay on the island longer at the end of the tour which is handy. Only hitch was that the tour operator wanted a printed Viator voucher when I went to redeem the tickets at the ferry dock when it specifically says e-voucher is accepted, so just watch for that as it did cause a bit of an argument and delay, but sorted in the end. Overall would recommend this tour.
Very enjoyable, lovely driver, lunch very disappointing ,olive oil tasting great,so was Wild on Waiheke, Mudbrick great could of had lunch here and stayed longer very short visit,stoneyridge a disappointment also.
Will go back to Waiheke again but will get a car and drive our selves. This tour is great for getting your bearings but I would not rate it as a great food and wine experience.
My girlfriend and I recently went on this tour and what an amazing day it was! One of the best experiences of my life. Everything ran smoothly from start to finish. You can get the ferry earlier if you want to, we got the 11am ferry and got fantastic views of auckland skyline as we sped off to waiheke. All of the vineyards were beautiful and the wines were all great and normally reasonably expensive. Additional wines with lunch were at a reduced $5 as well.
The all day bus pass is great too, we stayed on the island for dinner and got the bus back for a later ferry which worked out well. Highlight of the day was the view at the top of mudbrick vineyard with horses grazing next to us and a glass of wine in hand. An all round well organised tour with a friendly knowledgable tour guide, Tracy.
Great time! Driver was hilarious and knowledgable!
Nice way to see Auckland. Not very many discounts on the wine, but nice experience.
This tour was probably the highlight of our trip. Fabulous wines, friendly staff and people in town. The olive oil stop was amazing as well. One good idea that we took advantage of, get your tickets early, and you can go to the island a few hours before the tour starts and have some breakfast on the island and see the town a bit before the tour starts.
Made for a very memorable day, highly recommended.
