It was a very enjoyable morning that ran smoothly. Beautiful scenery with the beaches and the wineries to look at. It was good value for money and we would use Viator again for further trips.
Great from start to finish. Very knowledgeable guide and a lovely island.
Horst is a great tour host - he provides lots of useful and humorous information on his tour which goes out of the way to show a more interesting side to the island.
What a great way to spend the day if the weather is fine. The ferry ride over was comfortable and the ferry has free wifi for those who need their fix, plus has drinks and snacks at reasonable prices. The bus tour around the island was good with some spectacular scenery on offer. We chose to hop off the bus tour at Onetangi and hit the beach followed by lunch at Charlie Farley's. We then caught the local bus back to Oneroa for a look around before catching another local bus back to the ferry terminal for the ferry back to the city. The local bus service was very easy to use and runs at reasonable intervals. As we had two 17yo girls in tow the winery tour wasn't an option, but from what we saw of the island wineries, that also appears to be a good option. Fuller's also offer dining tours from Auckland and they seem to be another good possibility. All in all a day well spent.

This tour was perfect for what we wanted a comprehensive overview of Waikeke Island in the limited time we had available. Arrangements were seamless apart from an early hiccup with the bus - quickly resolved and the driver was informative.
A fantastic experience!
The guides were professional, courteous, knowledgeable and very caring.
They made you feel like you were the only person in the group. The attention and care given was beyond my expectation!
Thanks for a wonderful experience.
Everything about this tour was wonderful. Would definitely recommend.
This tour is highly recommended. Everything was well organized and at a very reasonable cost. The tour guide was very informative and was happy to answer any questions. We hopped off at a winery for lunch and was able to get the local bus back to our ship.
10 out of 10. Really great thing to do. I wish I had had more time, but will certainly come back and do it again. Thanks
Excellent - tour guide Horst was very informative and amusing and we loved the Island. Good value for money.
The tour was perfect. Horst was a great tour guide and took us all over the island. He dropped you off at the wineries if you chose, or in town, or back to the ferry terminal. We stopped in town for a great lunch and walked back to the ferry. There was an all day bus pass included to use as you liked. What a great day!
What a treat this was. Nice ferry ride, a one hour van ride to the highlights. Lots of beautiful homes, views...a must.
Panda was a friendly and interesting guide with an amazing knowledge of the Island. Waiheke Island is a beautiful place and this was a convenient way to get around and learn a bit about it.
Waiheke Island is a must to see and is a little piece of paradise in Auckland waters. The bus trip was a good way to see the island as we were short on time and the bus is also large enough and comfortable with great commentary from the driver who has lived on the island for many years. Highly recommended.
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.
Fun tour. Ferry ride to island was beautiful. Bus tour was good and we enjoyed wine and pizza at the vineyard during our free time.
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.
lovely few hours sightseeing good trip on ferry and coach tour
