Fullers Ferries dominate the local ferry business with frequent service to many locations. The Waiheke package included round trip passage and a ticket on the hop on hop off bus on Waiheke Island. Comfortable fast ferry brought us to small harbor where the bus started. A map showed all the stops and points of interest at each stop, wineries, beaches,... More

Great way to see Rangitoto and the view back to the City. The walk to the Summit is fine for the young and fit but be aware it is up hill and down dale - not a straight climb. The ride takes you near to the top and yes there are still a lot of stairs to climb - but... More

No doubt, this was one of the highlights of our trip to NZ . No doubt, there are spectacular views of Auckland and a very good excuse to drink wine all afternoon. Just know that almost every stop requires an uphill trek on a dirt road to get to the winery, with some rather long treks. At the end of... More

A ferry and bus tour is a good way to view a new location, and check what is of interest. The wineries and stops are of interest, a reasonable lunch is provided and there are a number of opportunities to taste and purchase the offerings on the way. This is a popular tour with locals and tourists alike

Hopping On and off the bus at different wineries and scenic locations was fantastic. Wish we had more hours in the day to do the beaches as well as the wine tasting but ran out of time to even do justice to all there was to do. A must for Aukland visitors since it is an easy ferry trip with... More

Double decker busses each with a host to give an overview of the small communities, shops, restaurants and wineries. Busses run every 30 minutes and are on schedule.

This was a fantastic day and well worth the money. I think we were very lucky with our Fullers Guide though, who was really well organized and thoughtful. She knew ahead of time any wineries that were closed and told us. She walked around the bus and individually asked each person what they were doing and then gave personal recommendations.... More

Quick ferry over and met by tour guide. Brand new double decker with very comfy seats. Great day doing a little of everything. Beach, hike, bush walk, wine tasting and stunning views. Could have done with a better map/more info on it. Tells you all the vineyards but not much else. The staff are very informative and helpful but nice... More

We had one day to explore and wanted to see it all. This ferry/explorer tour combo allowed that to happen perfectly. The bus stop is right at the ferry pier and made each pick up every 30 minutes until 7:15pm. We got to see Oneroa beach, Onetangi beach, have a nice lunch, see Cable Bay winery (a must) and still...
