I only gave this a 4 to make sure you work a little harder to get to island earlier. Or stay longer. Its lovely and needs a little more research to take advantage of the ferry ticket and all day bus pass. Oil tasting was the best! Preplan your end to consider staying at last wine tasting, otherwise each stay is rather short. Guide Evelyn was completely charming and would be helpful to your questions and plans.

The trip was well run. Evelyn was the most lovely driver/host with such a warm welcoming personality. Waiheke is a beautiful part of the world. The wine and food were both good, it was however the most sober wine tour i've ever been on.

This was a great tour - you take the ferry from Auckland to Waiheke Island, and then when you get off the ferry, the bus driver is in the terminal with a sign to direct you to the bus. Then, you spend half the day going from winery to olive oil maker to winery. I'm not a huge wine fan, but the day was fantastic. I took this trip solo and quickly made friends several of the Australian and British groups also on the tour. The views are very pretty. Lunch was pretty good, nothing amazing, but not terrible, and it was enjoyable to get to sit down and converse with other tour members. I recommend, after the ferry ride back to Auckland, having dinner in one of the restaurants in the ferry building. It was a great way to end the day.

A nice way to get a taste of Waiheke Island. We only had one free day, and we really wanted to try some of the wines on Waiheke. This tour made it easy to get there, get around the island, and try some wines. We really enjoyed all three wine stops, and our bus driver/guide was very cheerful, also. At the end of the last tasting, she offered to stop at the winery next door to drop off anyone who didn't want to go back to the ferry, which we did. Overall, I'd say it was a great way to see a bit of the island, but next time, I'd definitely try to stay longer and see more.

A good tour. The friendly, informative driver/guide met us at the ferry terminal on the island. Good wineries to visit with enthusiastic guides to explain their products. A very good lunch sitting outside not far from the vines. The only disappointment was the size of the group. As we got on the bus to start the tour a group of 18 was added. That would have been okay, but they acted like they didn't want to be there, their talking amongst themselves over the driver and local guides was distracting, and they were always late returning to the bus.
Included in the tour price was a local bus pass for the island, but the tour finished at 5pm and I don't think anyone stayed to use it.

The tour guide was really friendly and funny and we went to range of different wineries, with different experiences. A really good day out from Auckland.
