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.
This package was well organized and a great deal for what we did. I highly recommend it!
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.
We had 7 in our group and only 2 of us had ziplined. We all had a great time. Some of our group aren't very physically fit but they did great. The staff at EcoZip was fabulous and very patient. They were knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the island and enthusiastic about their jobs. The tour guide on the bus very great. He talked almost the entire time we were on the bus, telling us about the island and many interesting stories. The wineries were very good. Good wines and good lunch. We also visited an olive oil producer and that was very interesting and tasty. We were able to stay on the island but it began to rain about 2pm and no end to it so we didn't get to explore the very interesting looking village part. Next time! I would totally do this exact tour again if I'm ever in Auckland.
Everything about the tour was awesome! The Ecozip staff were very friendly and had a lot of information about the island and all of the plants/animals on it. The wineries were all very unique and lunch was surprisingly delicious and filling. The best part is the fact that your purchase includes a round-trip ferry ticket and all-day bus pass allowing you to stay and enjoy the beautiful Waiheke Island once the tour ends around 3PM. This was definitely my favorite experience while visiting Auckland.
Fantastic tour!! I missed out on the Ziplining unfortunately but the wine part was awesome! Went to 4 different producers wine, beer, olive oil and were able to stay on at the last winery as the tour ended, but the ferry goes every half hour. Most delicious wines and beers and food - and the scenery on Waiheke is just stunning! Also, our guide was really awesome - she has an excellent knowledge of the Island and its history and was really informative and fun. Definitely recommend - I reckon I'd go on this tour again!!
Early start, had the zip lines to ourselves, beautiful island and great wines. Very few free wine tastings, pay if you want to taste a variety of wines.
Really great day. Ticket collection was easy - ferry very modern and handled the swell in difficult conditions. Island is just beautiful reminds me of North Shore Maui in Hawaii. The zip lining was safety conscious and loads of fun. Great driver on our island tour very funny. 3 beautiful wineries particularly Mudbrick - great wine amazing views and olive grove and products. Amazing scenery and great town - fantastic way to spend a day in Auckland.
Zip Lining was amazing. The wine, beer and olive oil tasting was also a fun experience. We bought some NZ olive oil because it was so delicious. Would have liked some more sweeter wine options.
We had a great tour! The wineries were excellent, everything ran smoothly, and lunch was surprisingly delicious, the only thing was I wish we had more time to browse around the properties- it felt like we were cramming it all in. The ziplining was awesome- we had a tour all to ourselves! I loved the nature walk and this was the first time I felt like I had enough zipline time!
The ecozip part was the most amazing. The staff were friendly and made sure people felt comfortable and safe. The wine tours were also quite interesting my favorite was the olive oil site.
The ziplining was amazing! It was so much fun, but we were very impressed by how safety-conscious all the staff here - and they were also so friendly and helpful. The winery tours were great - we loved sampling wines outside in the vineyards, and lunch under the trees was wonderful! All in all, a great day, and one that we would definitely recommend!
Zip line was smaller then I had expected but still a lot of fun. The wine tour was Fabulous the views from Waiheke were breath taking. The wine was great as well.
Can't wait to revisit!
Great views while zip lining, if you can keep your eyes open! The vineyard tours were very interesting...and tasty!
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!
