There is a bit of Paradise a short hop from Auckland called Waiheke Island. After a short 30 minute ferry ride from Auckland 4 of us had the pleasure of meeting with Christine Gisby of See Waiheke Tours. Christine is the owner of the company and a long time resident of Waiheke.
She whisked us away in a very comfortable van for a marvellous day of Superb vistas, delightful wineries ( Obsidian and Peacock Sky), ocean beaches were we swam and walked and a good cultural overview of what Waiheke was and is.
We had a beautiful lunch at Peacock Sky Winery at her suggestion.
Throughout the day Christine's knowledge of Waiheke and her passion for her island bubbled forth. We thoroughly enjoyed her company and were sorry to say goodbye at the end of the day.
One of us had forgotten a camera at one of the stops. A phone call to Christine and she found the camera and had it on the ferry the next morning. Thank you Christine. You made it a great day in every way.
