Amazing day on Waiheke Island
Jun 2021
Wow! This was such an amazing tour in so many ways and we highly recommend this tour to others. Our tour guide Bil, was so knowledgeable and friendly, making us immediately feel comfortable and welcome.
We went to three wineries and the Rangihoua Olive Oil Estate. We received a presentation from staff at each location and were provided a variety of delicious fresh food paired to compliment the wine tastings. You could see the amount of passion from the staff, who were enthusiastic and helpful to answer any questions.

For what this tour provided, we thought it was well priced. It really exceeded our expectations, thank you for a lovely day.

GOURMET WINE TOUR.
The Gourmet wine tour was awesome. Very knowledgeable staff at the vineyards and Olive Grove. Delicious food to compliment the wine tastings - oysters, cheese, chocolate brownie and very nice platter for lunch. Bill our tour guide was amazing - very friendly and knowledgeable and made the day. Thanks for a great day.

A great day out
Apr 2021
We recently did this tour which was a great day out. Jo was our guide and she was such good company, so knowledgable about the island, wine, the vineyards - a real pleasure to chat and be with. We enjoyed everything about the day - 3 vineyards where we were welcomed and very well taken care of and the Rangihoua Olive Oil Estate so a really varied day. We loved the backstory to Rangihoua.
Highly recommend
