We took a halfday tour to Waiheke Island with visits to 3 vineyards including peacock sky, Stonyridge and Mudbrick. They were only 2 of us so it seems like a special tour. We went to different points of the island with great views for pictures....More

Great tour for the price. The wineries were beautiful and the lunch we got was delicious. From start to finish this was one of our favorite tours in Auckland.

This island felt almost unreal, what an incredible place to spend time. The fact that people actually live there... the wineries were beautiful and zip lining is a must.

We booked the Hop on Hop Off bus tour. It was amazing. The tour guide was very professional and knowledgeable and the bus tour provided a great way of exploring the island and seeing the sites in a relaxing and comfortable way.

Highly recommend a day trip to Waiheke from Auckland. Did ziplining with Ecozip adventures and then walked around the island. I took the bus to Onetangi Bay for sunset and it was beautiful. You can buy the ride all day bus pass for $10.
