Great day wine tasting.

Had an awesome day wine tasting with my friend on our girly weekend away. Phil was a great tour guide and we felt very spoilt having our own chauffeur. Highly recommend.

Tour okay, not as personal as we were expecting, Phil friendly enough, promptly picked us up, gave us an informative fact sheet about the day, but he could have been more enthusiastic and conversational on the day especially about the Wines and Auckland.

Even from the inquiry and booking process, Phil was a pleasure to work with. He was always extremely prompt, and even on short notice helped my husband and I craft a "customized" version of a day on Waiheke Island. We didn't have to do any planning or driving, and just got to sit back and enjoy the food, wine and... More

Well, you have already read the above excellent reviews of this tour. My wife and I also enjoyed this greatly. We did the "Scenic Coast and Vines" trip. There was just one other couple with us on our trip, from Panama, and we all had a nice time, with the pleasant included lunch.

Phil did an excellent job making our full day wine tour really great. He chose 4 really lovely wineries, each with different strengths. He added lots of extra touches - he brought along a cheese tray to accompany our tastings, he provided a summary of each winery's offerings, perfect for taking notes, and he provided a wealth of information about...

Outstanding wines , excellent lunch, breathtaking views, and Phil Parker's hospitality made his Waiheke Island Wine Tour a tour I recommend most highly. We visited three vineyards tasting at least 4 wines at each stop. The 100% merlot at the Peacock Sky Vineyard was the best merlot I have ever tasted. The gourmet lunch paired with an outstanding Shiraz at... More

My girlfriend and I booked a tour with Phil after reading the many tripadvisor reviews. We had a wonderful time touring some of the wineries around Auckland.

Past reviewers have said everything that needs to be said. Phil proved to be the perfect host and his low key approach was appreciated. We (2 couples) visited three wineries for tastings, had an excellent lunch at Mudbrick, and saw a good bit of the beautiful Island if Waiheke. If you are thinking of a wine tour just book with...
