Booked over the phone with Jenny who was lovely. Simon was at the other end of the ferry to pick us up along with 7 others which was a good size group that made the tour much more personable. Simon gave us commentary of this spectacular island along the way to 3 wineries: Obsidion, Te Motu, and The Batch. All... More

I was in Auckland for work and booked a last minute wine tour with a friend and I am pleased to say we had the best time ever, great wineries, great hosts and a wonderful tour guide called Joe. She was so knowledgable of the area, would recommend this tour to everybody, wine lover or not.

We had a lovely day with Steve our tour guide. Visited Rangihoua Estate to taste award winning olive oils, then Stonyridge Wines, Peacock Sky Wines and finally Mudbrick Wines where we enjoyed a lovely lunch in their brand new restaurant. Steve was wonderful - friendly and charming and very knowledgeable about wines and the island itself. The weather was a... More

As we were staying on the island, we were collected from our accomodation around lunchtime by Niki - who was to be our private guide for the afternoon as no one else had booked in for the tour that day. Niki was extremely friendly & insightful, taking us to a number of scenic spots and answering our many questions before... More

Due to a mix-up with our tour reservation, my family was treated to a day with Ananda Tour. How lucky we were. The food and wine tasting at Peacock Sky was friendly, informative and delicious, followed by more wine tasting and lunch at the Stony Ridge vinyard's restaurant. Ananda's owner Ginnie then treated us to another hour or so of... More

Ian was our guide for the day with Ananda Tours, and he was amazing. We visited Waiheke Island on the second day of our trip to New Zealand. We woke up early to take the ferry from Auckland, and were surprised to see Ian with our names on a sign. He escorted us to our private van, and whisked us... More

we got only one day in Auckland and made several inquiries with Ananda Tours, they were able to accommodate and arrange what we wanted, the ziplining was great fun and the wine tour in afternoon was relaxing, would recommend first time visitor to do this tour.

Simon gave us a great tour of all the scenic spots on the island and took us to three great wineries. Plus one more for lunch. Very helpful and great day. Waiheke would be hard to get around yourself so added bonus of someone driving you around.

Niki was our guide and was very welcoming. We had a fab selection of wineries with small dishes to accompany each sample. If you want an intimate tour and not following the masses choose this one. Started at The Batch and the sparkling with oysters a must, had the pleasure of the delightful Darren who took the time to tell... More
