This was a very fun and informative tour. We enjoyed tasting the wines, olive oils, and beer. It gave us a good overview of the island. We stayed behind for a while and used the bus service to return to the ferry.
Overall, I thought the tour was good but I am not sure I would book it again. There were a lot of people on the tour and I think I would have preferred a smaller group experience. We had to wait for a second ferry which delayed our departure so we felt rushed through lunch and had to play catch up the rest of the day. My hands down favorite was Wild on Waiheke - the owner was lovely, great samples of beer and wine and would have preferred to have lunch there. The Mudbrick vineyard was nice as well but a bit rushed. I just didn't feel the overall value for the ticket cost was very good. Our tour host was very knowledgeable, funny and pleasant but overall, if you have done previous wine tours - you might be disappointed with the tastings, pace and large group.
The tour was great, however one could not use the e-ticket feature a paper ticket must be presented
at the time of travel to the island. Fortunately the young lady at the booking counter in Aukland was able to get us tickets. Disaster avoided.
Great wine, beer, and olive oil and the views are spectacular!
Each of the wineries as well as the olive oil facility were fabulous. The wines were delicious I just wish I could get them in Texas. The staff were generous and accommodating and we had a great time.
It was a rainy day when we went on this tour so that affected it. This would have been way better if it was a nice sunny day out. Some of the things we weren't able to do because of the weather which of course isn't their fault but was a bit of a bummer. We were also a bit rushed at each spot and I am not sure if that is because we were running behind or if that's just how it usually is. All in all I don't regret doing this tour and would still recommend and wish you the best for a nice sunny day. The lunch was also great and the island is beautiful.

What a wonderful day. The ferry trip to the island was great and a nice way to see Auckland from the water. The properties we visited were varied and showed off the produce of the island extremely well. The lunch supplied at the first vineyard was very tasty. It was a great day out and we were back in Auckland by 4.45pm after another great ferry ride
Just an incredible experience !
Lovely guides, lovely guests, lovely views! EcoZip is all around great!
Really enjoyed zip lining through the trees the views were spectacular and the guides very experienced and fun.
This package was well organized and a great deal for what we did. I highly recommend it!
Incredible views paired with a very knowledgeable staff. This is definitely the best way to see a beautiful part of New Zealand.
Lots of fun! The guides for ziplining were knowledgeable and fun.
The wine/beer/olive oil tastings were a lot of fun and a great way to round out the day!
We had a great time with EcoZip. The leaders were professional and really nice. We enjoyed all three ziplines as well as the bush walk at the end of the day. Would highly recommend!
Excellent vineyards and a beautiful tour of the island. Most places only let you taste about 2 wines though, it would be nice if you got to try more wines for the price of this tour.
Fabulous fun. Guides were amazing, knowledgeable and very nice. Easy zip lines for all to enjoy. Views were great. Walk up the hill was a little muddy and slippery in places but view of rain forest was great.

It was awesome! Great time by all!
This tour was amazing!
Wineries were a little disappoining was really looking forward but only the last stop was worth the time. Tour driver was very informative
Waiheke Island is beautiful and this is a great way to see some of it. The views were spectacular. The ziplining was fun though here is a hint - lean backwards before you reach the platform to minimize stress on your back, especially if you are over 50 like this reviewer!. The staff was fun, professional and very safety conscious. I was pleasantly surprised by the walk back up the hill - a nature walk through their own reserve. Our guide was knowledgeable about New Zealand's flora and fauna and passionate about conservation.
Loved it! had to use our imagination because it wasn't sunny! also wish there was a few more places to visit, wouldn't really call it food and wine tasting tour, more wine tasting with some lunch : our Tour lady was lovely!!!
Very nice tour. Wine and food were good.
