Catch the Fuller's ferry across to Waieke. Buy the ferry ticket with the one day unlimited bus ticket so you can go wherever you want to. A beautiful swimming beach is at Onetangi. It's very safe for the whole family.

So if sitting on a packed, baking hot bus and rattling round a couple of places on the island, then this is the tour for you. Personally I would hire a car or take my own next time. Also the woman who took the booking on Fullers' phone line was bloody rude.

This tour starts with a ferry from downtown Auckland and then continues with a bus trip around the island where you can hop on or off at any point. I really enjoyed the flexibility that their pass provided as you were not on a fixed timetable and could explore destinations at your leisure. The buses are safe, comfortable and air... More

It is a simple tour through the island but our guide/driver made it very interesting and fun as he was a local with a lot of knowledge of the area.

We had an amazing guide, the only thing we could recommend would be making a decision on which winery you will visit early enough. Most stop serving lunch at 3pm.

We started our day trip with this short bus tour. It was easy to do jumping on the ferry in Auckland then having the bus waiting upon arrival. Waiheke is a small islands with many twisty turny roads so we got a good feel for the layout of the island on the tour and enjoyed some beautiful vistas. We were... More

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
