Fantastic trip. The guide/driver was informative and full of character. Being able to then spend as much time as I wished on the island as so many return ferries was a bonus. Also the day pass for the local buses enabled me some flexabilty to see more. Would recommend.

We highly recommend this tour - it was great being shown the island by a friendly bus driver who gave us a lot of information. For our first visit to the island this was the best way to learn about the island and the best places to go for meals, swimming, etc. It was so easy being able to access the ferry, tour bus and hop in, hop off island bus all with one ticket. Thank you.

Tour provided a good overview of island and what to see and do. Hop on and off pass worked well and bus service was timely. Should have booked an earlier tour time so I had more time to see other areas of the island and visit a few other wineries, most closed by 4 or 5 PM. Would highly recommend.

The bus driver was very informative and took us to many beautiful sights on Waiheke Island. He was very helpful in showing us where we should get the bus back to the ferry after we were on our own. The ferry trip was also very enjoyable. The driver also suggested a great place for us to have some oysters. It was a great tour.

This proved to be an excellent way to explore this beautiful island. The driver was very enthusiastic, informative and helpful. The chance to use the free hop on-hop off public bus services should not be missed, as it gives you the flexibility to visit a wider area of the island. The timings of the buses are also geared to meet specific ferries back to Auckland which is extremely useful.

It was our first full day in Auckland, feeling very lost as we negotiated the busy city with our maps. Fortunately the Ferry Building was large and inside there were plenty of signs pointing to the different ferries. Good thing I asked one of the employees about my Viator booking printout - she sent me back to the Fullers Ferry office to get REAL tickets! Boarding was orderly, disembarking was mob-style with no lines for safety.

The ferry ride was quite comfortable, bumpy only with the waves of passing vessels. On Waiheke we followed the guy with the Waiheke Island Tour sign to his comfortable bus. Before he started he had us introduce ourselves by country of origin then proceeded with a running commentary of the various parts of the island. Sometimes his Australian accent was abit puzzling but we loved his sardonic comments. I wish there were more stopping points for picture-taking but the roads were narrow and hilly. We spent several hours after the tour stopping at mini-towns to shop and have lunch, riding any bus back to the Ferry. A lovely island worth visiting. Interestingly, all the buses plied designated routes, some to/from wineries - meaning there really was no need to ride the special Wine Tasting bus if one did not want to go to all the wineries

This was a nice easy tour to fill in the half day we had available on a very short stopover in Auckland. The ferry trip was nice and relaxing and the tour of the island informative and interesting. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer to explore on our own after the tour finished. Great value for money.

Price is well worth it. You get a ride to the island, a ride around the island all day, get to see the best sites, and a ride back to Auckland whenever you want. Would recommend.

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!

Id give 5 stars for the island, it is the most wonderful place. The ferry service was clean and well run but the process of submitting the Viator voucher was very difficult with the staff having no idea how to redeem them. The bus tour coach had certainly seen better days and we were very happy to get off half way and get the standard bus back. Fantastic place though and highly recommended to visit, I would just do it as an independent trip next time

It was quick to co-inside with the afternoon ferry but we saw a lot and the tour allowed us to make the choice to stay on the island for the day or head back on the ferry and visit another day.
