Arrived in Auckland two days prior to leaving on a cruise. Since we had previously spent three weeks touring New Zealand a year prior to this visit, we opted for a day trip out of Auckland and took the Waiheke Island Ferry, Explorer Tour of the island. Surprisingly a wonderful way to spend a portion of the day. $52/pp for... More

We visited Auckland on a cruise in March and chose Christine's tour after much research on TripAdvisor. She greeted us off the ferry - having given us very clear instructions where to catch it and how to find it - and we joined 3 other independent travellers for a fantastically informative and fun packed day. We visited Peacock Sky for... More

There is a bit of Paradise a short hop from Auckland called Waiheke Island. After a short 30 minute ferry ride from Auckland 4 of us had the pleasure of meeting with Christine Gisby of See Waiheke Tours. Christine is the owner of the company and a long time resident of Waiheke. She whisked us away in a very comfortable... More

Our guide Christine Gisby was the perfect combination of knowledge of the island and enthusiasm about it with responsiveness to our indicated interests. She knew exactly what to show us and who to call to get us special treatment when we were there.

I booked a private tour with Christine for my birthday weekend. From the beginning she was amazing, responding to my query within about an hour with a proposed (and thoughtful) itinerary already planned. She organised everything perfectly, I didn't have to do anything! On the day she was warm, friendly and easy going, catering to all of our requests (no... More

We have just spent a great day with Christine of See Waiheke Tours. From the moment she met us off the ferry we were wonderfully looked after. She was very knowledgeable about the island and her love of the island shone through. We visited two vineyards (for wine tasting) and an olive oil producer, all were very interesting. Lunch was...

My husband and I had a fantastic afternoon on Waiheke with Christine. At a leisurely pace we visited wineries for a delicious lunch and another one for a tasting and small bite food pairing. Both were special, excellent, fun and different. Also visited a community artists gallery which was exceptinal. Christine knows all the ins and outs of the island....she... More

Christine was unable to lead our tour. Geri picked us up in a very nice rental car and was fun to tour with. She drove us all around Waiheke Island, stopping for photos frequently. The only negative was that we were supposed to stop at three wineries, including the lunch stop, but we only stopped at one winery and the... More

We called See Waiheke Tours based on the rave reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. We were not expecting a private tour but as the only couple booked that day (questionable weather forecast but turned out fine), that is what we had. Christine gave us a very personal look at her very special island. We enjoyed the spectacular... More
