My husband and I booked the Gourmet and Food tour when we were on our Honeymoon last week. We were picked up by a gentlemen at our B&B, and dropped in town to have a coffee while he picked up the other guests at the ferry. He was very nice. The tour was a great overall day! The first stop... More

Jo was our guide. She was warm and friendly. She consulted us before moving off even though she already knew the itinerary we have chosen. She gave clear explanation along the way. Knew her way around well and was able to get the staff of the places we visited to answer our questions. As our two kids are into photography,... More

I had the pleasure of booking the gourmet food and wine tasting tour. Arranged and paid for the ferry. The driver was here to meet us and was excellent. Our group of 10 had fabulous olive oil, wine and food. Plenty of oysters and for an additional $10 taste tried a $290 bottle of wine at stone ridge. At the... More

Our guide was very enjoyable to spend the afternoon with. Sorry we forgot his name. Regardless, he had knowledge of all the wineries, the terroir, and made reservations for us at a nice lunch spot. Highly recommended.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed The Gourmet Food and Wine tour! Although the weather was a bit gloomy, our guide, Simon, had a sense of humor and he was very knowledgeable about the island and the wine. I would recommend this tour to anyone spending the day or longer on Waiheke Island, rain or shine!

What a great time! From the start Simon (our guide) was warm and informative. You could tell that he was very proud of his home. The vineyards we visited were breathtakingly beautiful and the wine was superb. A perfect way to end our New Zealand trip.

This was a fantastic trip. We visited 3 wineries which were all quite different and of the 10 wines we tasted we didn't dislike any of them! The hosts at each winery were friendly and informative and our tour guide Paul, and then later Jenny were great. It was nice to be able to chose our own lunch spot too.... More

Ananda is a fantastic Best choice! Paul the 30 yr resident was a fabulous tour guide! Loved this wine tour and Waiheke Island. We bought our tickets from the visitor information kiosk near the ferry House on Quay St and were pleased with the price and the location. Our tickets did not include ferry. The wineries we visited were all... More

This was our favorite tour and day in Auckland. They do a great job with the tour. When you arrive via ferry they are waiting to pick you up and then whisk you away to see the beautiful islands and to the vineyards. We did the gourmet food and wine tour which was spectacular. First you stop to taste olive... More

We had beautiful weather for a boat ride to and food and wine tour of Waiheke Island. Our first stop was at an olive oil mill. The tasting was great and we didn't hesitate to buy a bottle of their oil. Next stop was a food and wine pairing tasting, another great choice. After another wine tasting stop we arrived... More
