Great little tour of Waiheke island. Bus driver was great and very comical. If you want something to do on a quiet day or would like to explore the island, I recommend this.

I bought a ticket on the Fullers Waiheke Explorer Tour as it is more than 30 years since I had been to Waiheke. The tour takes about one and a half hours and once you reach Onetangi the driver then gives you the option of staying on the bus and returning to Matiatia or he will let you off along... More

The tour is quite flexible. As soon as we got the island, the guided tour showed us all the scenic points and the introduction was very helpful for us to plan the rest of the day. The all day bus pass is very useful to go around. The only disadvantage is the bus runs every one hour. Better to pick... More

If you want to see a good amount of Waiheke Island take the explorer tour. The driver (a local) took our family and others to all the good locations, stopped several times for photo's, morning tea etc.

I agree with most of the previous reviews. This was a good way of seeing the island to figure out which places to explore in detail later. Very friendly service at the ticket counter in Auckland and then with Royce as the tour guide in Waiheke Island. I thought I saw enough of the island during the tour that I... More

While it's not really cheap or expensive, the price also includes a full day bus ticket that you can use to roam freely around the island. Just note that the buses often go only hourly. The short ferry ride allows you to snap some nice photos of Rangitoto and Devonport as well. Upon arrival, the guide will be waiting there... More

yes, Glenn, our tour guide will tell you to turn off your cell phone, as you are on holiday and should be enjoying the sights. He was dead right, the sights were incredibly. Glenn was outstanding as a tour guide, and lots of fun, with plenty of whit. It was a great bus trip, and would do it again, just... More

A 35 minutes ferry ride to the island, and you will be greeted by a guide, who will drive you once around the island explaining the highlights, then onwards you will be on your own with a full day bus pass to explore around the island. Remember to take a bus guide so you will know when to expect a... More

The ferry trip over is great, especially on a good day. This ticket includes an hour and a half tour of the island with a guide, who was super and gave us a great commentary. It also includes a free all day bus pass so that you can visit any of the wineries or beaches before returning to the ferry.... More
