What You Can Expect
Upon arrival at the island, you’ll be greeted by your tour driver and taken by air-conditioned coach to Stonyridge Vineyard, one of Waiheke’s first wineries and a specialist in Bordeaux-style red wines. Enjoy a tour of the vineyard followed by a wine tasting and light lunch.
After lunch, you’ll head to the award-winning Rangihoua Estate for a tasting of their olive oils. See the olive orchards and a demonstration of harvesting techniques, then learn about the process of making extra virgin olive oil. Finally you’ll sample a variety of olive oils in the estate’s tasting room.
Next you’ll move on to Wild On Waiheke, a vineyard that also makes micro-brewed beers and showcases locally produced olive oils and preserves. You’ll be offered samples of their wines, beers, olive oil and preserves during your visit.
The last stop on your tour takes you to Mudbrick Vineyard, a winery and restaurant with stunning views overlooking the Hauraki Gulf. Savor the final wine sampling amid lush gardens and vineyards.
At the end of the tour you’ll have the option to return with the tour bus to the wharf for a late-afternoon ferry ride back to Auckland. Alternatively, you can choose to stay on the island and return at your leisure. You’ll be provided with a complimentary All Day Bus Pass that allows you to further explore Waiheke Island on the public bus. Ferries to Auckland run until late in the evening; check the schedule for details. You may not want to leave after you get a taste of the fine food and wine of Waiheke!

A great tour. Guide was very entertaining. Thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of all venues and lunch was lovely. Highly recommend this tour. Good value!
Great tour with knowledgeable guide and winery stops were excellent.
A great tour for 3 wineries and a bonus olive oil factory. It was classy to be served wine as we stepped out of the coach, and it was even classier to be taken on a tour through the vineyard, rather than just being plonked down to swill wine. Very personable staff at the wineries, and some good vintages.
This was a really great tour. All the wineries were fantastic. Our lunch was excellent. A very enjoyable day.
Absolutely stunning tour, scenery and service. Only disappointment was the lunch at one of the wineries. I think a better lunch could be provided for the money paid for the tour.
