Great tour loved waihiki island, tour guide was great, highly recomend.
Interesting and magnificiant landscapes, good wines ;) and an very original birthday cake :D
This tour was absolutely amazing! I loved the three wineries we visited and our tour guide was a delight. I would highly recommend this wine tour especially if they would be fortunate enough to have our tour guide. I appreciated that he had vast knowledge of all the wines, wineries and waiheke sights.
Thank you for putting together such an amazing tour
Tour was very good.
Glenn our tour leader was very personable, chatty and tried to be witty. Our visit to Mudbrick was lead by Tristan who was incredibly knowledgeable on growing the grapes, winemaking and the wines themselves. The views from the winery were spectacular and the wines were very good - the chardonnay was my favorite. Goldies served some wonderful cheeses and good wine. At the last winery Te Whau, the owner explained to us his philosophy of wine growing that is very different from the main stream, he was very passionate. The wines are of the Bordeaux style which are not to my taste, but were good. It was a great way to spend the afternoon on Valentines Day.
Beautiful island with tours and tastings at three vineyards---very nice day!
Very easy to obtain our Ferry tickets included in the price of the tour from Auckland to Waiheke Island. Our driver and tour guide was Glenn and he made the tour quite fun. Mudbrick Vineyard is an upscale attraction and the Mudbrick guide gave a good tour. Personally preferred the Mudbrick wines over Goldie and Te Whau.
Although we enjoyed the three vineyards and the history of the island given by the tour guide we found his constant jokes annoying. He also was berating us for not laughing at his jokes!
Fantastic scenery, great guide would love to do it all again. The only downfall was that we couldn't go over to the island in the morning to use our bus pass before the tour and had to leave the island straight after it finished to get to our next activity..
