Our group really enjoyed the tour! Our driver, Al, did a wonderful job in narrating the Waiheke Island history, and we loved his humor! Can't wait to visit again.

The tour was excellent. Good guide. Easy to get to Island by ferry. Only downside is the booking information does not tell you to report to the Fuller's kiosk dockside to collect your ferry and tour ticket. You need to be there at least 20 minutes early so they can look up the reservation and issue the tickets. There is usually a lineup at the booth to book excursions.

Excellent day on Waiheke Island with Allen, our tour guide. He lives on the island and knew everything about everybody. His creative and clever one-liners and comments were hysterical and complimented the short ride between winery visits. Lunch at Stonyridge was worth the price of the tour itself. MudBrick was also beautiful and I'm sure lunch there would have been equally good. Fantastic views, beautiful scenery and a delicious lunch we all devoured. I would not hesitate to take this tour again, and will definitely visit these two wineries again on our next visit.

What a wonderful guide, wonderful day. Everything was on time and well chosen and organized. My only complaint has to do with the wineries themselves and not the tours: spend less time yapping and let guests have more time to taste and BUY. We ran out of time at a couple places because of overly-long sales pitches.

This was a great tour, for the vineyards we went to-a great deal for the money. It was also nice to be able to explore Waiheke afterwards.

This wine tasting tour was one of the best tours we did on our entire trip. The bus driver was a 20 yr native of the island and extremely well informed about every part of it. The 3 wineries we visited all greeted our bus when we arrived with glasses of wine ready to serve and a special presentation about the winery for our tour group. The lunch at Stonyridge was excellent and right on time. David, the tour driver and guide even arranged for us to stop at the Annual Oyster Festival as an extra bonus and still kept everything efficient and running on time! All was very well done and we highly recommend this for a fun day and beautiful sites to see on Waiheke.

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.

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.

It was a little confusing at the ferry terminal that we did not meet the guide until we got to Waiheke but other than that we loved the excursion, the stops and the humor and knowledge of the guide

Except for a mishap when trying to get tickets at the fullers ferry (they didn't have our booking and had to ring the booking agent), I loved this tour. The places we stopped were fabulous, our bus driver was funny and it was a great deal!!

We had an amazing time on this tour, our guide was David and he was great. His local knowledge of the island added to the enjoyment of the day, and all of the wineries (and the olive grove) were fantastic. Thanks so much!

One of the best wine tours I've been on in such a beautiful place. The only criticism I have would be that the last winery wasn't good for people with mobility issues. You'll definitely want to spend more time on Waiheke Island after the tour.
