What You Can Expect

The Best of Waiheke: Ziplining, Wine Tasting and Vineyard Lunch

The Best of Waiheke: Ziplining

Make your way to the Auckland Ferry Terminal for the 40-minute ferry ride to Waiheke Island. You’ll board a minivan for the transfer to the zipline center, where your small group receives a safety briefing from an experienced guide who safely attaches your harness to a cable at the treetops platform and sets you off on your first of three flights.
Zipline over a verdant valley and vineyards as you take in the surrounding beauty of Waiheke Island from above. Upon landing, follow an easy 1-mile (1.5-km) path on foot through the forest to the visitor center. Sate your appetite with a light lunch and wine tasting at one of Waiheke’s premium wineries: Stonyridge Vineyard. You’ll travel there by air-conditioned coach and join a larger group for your afternoon tour.
Follow up lunch with a tasting of several award-winning varieties of olive oil at Rangihoua Estate, where you’ll discover the process of making extra virgin olive oil and stroll the olive orchards. Next up is Wild On Waiheke for a sampling of wine, small-batch craft beer and other specialties during your visit. Your tour concludes at Mudbrick Vineyard to sip fine wines while enjoying views over the lush gardens and Hauraki Gulf.
Your driver takes you to the Waiheke Island Ferry Terminal for a late-afternoon ferry back to Auckland. Alternatively, use your complimentary All Day Bus Pass to explore more of the island on your own. Ferries run until late evening; check the schedule for details.

Our zipline trip was absolutely fabulous! Our driver from the ferry was fun and friendly and our two guides on the zip line were professional yet fun. The scenes were amazing as you went over the tree tops. Breathtaking views. The walk back was so beautiful and you felt like you were miles and miles from anywhere except the jungle! The wine tastings and lunch were also fun. We tasted amazing wines and the lunch was delicious! I would highly recommend this adventure!

Great - well planned out day. We felt like we had more than enough time at each stop.

Well organized, extremely safe. Easy hike, and great views/guides. Wine tasting was a bit rushed at each stop, and the first felt very tourist oriented we sat for a quick meal, a helicopter landed with another tour, and a bus was arriving as we departed. Still an amazing wine tour, especially for the value. We also were able to see a brewery and an olive farm/olive oil factory which was great.

Awesome!! Get to marina early enough to find your tickets as several booths are closed early am. Zip line staff fantastic and eco walk very enjoyable. Wine tasting bus driver fantastic. Enjoyed hanging out in town after to enjoy some of the local fare fish and chips take out right off of the beach not far from town.

Great experience all in all. Fantastic views. The ziplining was easy to do also for a beginner and the guides were very helpful. It all felt very safe. Walking back up was definitely the harder part :-
The afternoon was also nice, although visiting four different places was perhaps a bit too much given the time available - it felt like we had to rush from one place to another all the time. All the arrangements incl. taking the ferry from/to Auckland worked very smoothly. I warmly recommend having dinner on Waiheke after the tour ends - very easy to take a later ferry back to Auckland!

Loved this packaged tour to Waiheke Island. It gave me something to do alone while my friends had to work. Favorite part was by far the zip lining with EcoZip's team. Those guys were awesome. Wish I could have zip lined with them all day and night. It's addictive! Our tour guide and bus driver around the island was terrific and hilarious.

HIGHLY recommend this tour! This was one of our favorite things we did in New Zealand. Zip lining was super fun and the staff was great. The wine tasting was delicious and had a great lunch

Had a great time. It was great that the Zip line had three stages so the fun lasted longer. We had great food and tasted some nice wines at the wineries. Particularly loved the last winery Mudbrick and could have stayed an extra hour there. Hindsight as our return ticket with the ferry allowed us to catch any ferry back until 11PM that night and the local bus was included int eh ticket we should have planned to stay until late once the tour finished.
