Just nice to get a feel of the island as a whole.. well planned and it was quite convenient. Only thing is they will need to look into a better lunch stop then it would be very great. Anyways we had good fun going around the island with the tour and the guide was good too.

Great way to get a taste of Waiheke then decide where to sped more time using your bus pass. Perfect for a day trip. Got a potted history of the island, a bit of geography, politics and biology and a chance to walk on the beach. Take swimmers if it's summer. Don't miss the community art gallery and new library.

The Fullers Explorer is the perfect way to see all of the sights around Waiheke Island in a short amount of time, while still leaving you with lots of time to lounge at the beach, go wine-tasting, or do a little shopping and enjoy a leisurely meal. The bus is comfortable and frequently stops for photo opportunities at scenic spots... More

This tour is a great way to get an overview of Waiheke especially if you have limited time to spend on the island. Our trip today was made all the more special because of the awesome Autumn weather - we had the most perfect day - clear blue sky, warm and sunny. The weather made the trip with it's spectacular...

So, we got told that Waiheke Island was amazing and we were really looking forward to going around and seeing the sights. As we got off the ferry (quick and easy) there was a Bike Hire place being advertised just outside the port. We asked the man at the Bike Hire whether hiring a bike for the day was the... More

We booked the Wiaheke tour on a local's recommendation but our day was wet and windy. Despite that the 90 minutes tour was worthwhile to get a feel for the island and its community. Our bus driver was the gentleman appearing on the ticket, their longest serving driver and an island resident of long standing with local gossip to match.... More

When we went to purchase ferry and bus ticket John was very informative and friendly and suggested we instead purchase a package which included a 1.5 hour introductory bus tour. It seemed like a good choice but on retrospect our time and money would have been better spent with only the all day bus pass which would have allowed us... More

The cost of $52 for a 40 minute each way ferry trip and a 1 1/2 hour bus trip to see the sites of Waiheke was very affordable and informative if gave a good insight into the island and if's working and allowed us the opportunity to explore further before returning to Auckland. Perfect 1/2 day trip. Happy to recommend.
