Ruth was such a great host, she was super energetic and funny. One of the best hosts we have had. We got such a good selection of wines to try and we really enjoyed all the food.

A great tour for those with a spare day in Auckland. Ruth was an excellent guide and driver-we visited some beautiful vineyards and the lunch was delicious. I wish I had more time to explore the island a bit more!

Horst was our tour/bus driver, he was great! His personality was so exuberant! He really enjoys sharing his Waiheke island! He was very informative on the lifestyle on the island. We had a wonderful day with him and the other people on our tour. Great food, wine, olive tasting. Thank you!

We took 10AM ferry to Waiheke and did a little bit hiking before the wine tour. The bus is comfortable and driver/tour guide is nice. We tasted wine at 3 wineries with olive tasting as well.

The tour was fun and interesting! We learned about the island and tasted some great wine. Our guide did a great job of explaining how the wine industry came to the island and the history of the island overall. The wineries and the olive oil tasting made it a very tasty day. Would definitely recommend the tour.

That tour is worth all the money it costs, and then some. The bus driver is funny, interesting, friendly and well organized. Each winery was a delicious discovery in Waiheke wine lore and beautiful flavours. The view from the Mudbrick is breathtaking. The craft olive oil pressing facility was a superb variation on the wine tasting theme. Overall a very memorable tour with memories to last for the rest of your life. Makes me feel like retiring to NZ.

Kate, our wonderful guide, met us after we disembarked from the ferry on the island. Lovely ferry ride and excellent commentary from Kate who also drove the bus. The wineries and olive oil producer were just amazing, the scenery outstanding and we learned quite a bit about the process of making wine in the region. Delicious food served for lunch as well! Thank you, Kate! We had a fantastic day!!

I would highly recommend any visitor to Auckland to board this fine wine tour excursion. Our tour guide was funny, patient and very informative. He had highly recommended we stay for dinner after the tour finished and several of us did just that . My traveling buddy, Elva, and I ate with two other female tourists and enjoyed a wonderful and now are connected via FaceBook. The 4 vineyards selected were marvelous. Lunch was quite tasty and met my culinary standards. We had a fun group of tourists who were very vocal. I have been telling all my friends to do this tour.

The wineries visited all provided excellent explanations of their wine production methods. However, seeing as this a strong red wine production area I was a little disappointed the tastings didn't give the option of choosing a tasting that fit the individual preferences. Otherwise the tour was great. Throwing the olive oil tasting made it even better.

This was the last excursion of a 21 day trip. We were a bit tired but had a wonderful tour. Started with a 40 min ferry ride and then a delicious lunch at the first vineyard. We had quick visits to 2 more wineries and also tasted olive oil. Beautiful vistas around the island as well. Then another ferry ride home. A great way to end our trip.

Our Tour Guide, John, with NZ Winepro, couldn’t have been more knowledgeable, personable, or accomodating. The choices he made for us for the wineries, lunch, and chocolate were amazing. No riding in vans or big buses. We are also in NZ celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and John went out of his way to make it extra-special for us. An extra note: when I say lunch, I must add that it was outstanding - both food and location; 5 star! We will add that he has a deep knowledge of the culture and mindset of New Zealand which he happily shared; we felt enlightened - and gained even more respect and appreciation for this wonderful country.

No other word describes our day. I expected a small group but it was just my friend, me and John, our guide. He was friendly, fun and very knowledgeable about his country and wine. We were treated like royalty. It just doesn’t get better. From pick up to drop off it was fantastic. We experienced a good variety of wine. Saw some epic sites and had an overall splendid day. You can’t go wrong taking this tour. I would go again.Thanks, John, for a wonderful day!

Great atmosphere with staff very friendly and informative at the wineries and olive tasting. Timing at each location was sufficient although you can never have too long when drinking good wine at beautiful venues! Delicious lunch too. Bus driver/guide was helpful, organized and obviously enjoyed sharing the location and highlights along the way. Had some good advice from the ticket salesperson at the ferry terminal to catch an earlier ferry than the one stated on the tour ticket which we did. This allowed a little time to look around and relax before starting as well as ensuring we made it onto the island as the 11am ferry was quite full. (Especially if there are cruise ships in port at the time) Also be aware that the online ticket needed to be exchanged for ferry/tour tickets at the booth before getting into the ferry queue.
