Three awesome ziplines. Each one progresses in the adrenaline rush. Well run by Ecozip, they care about your safety. Wonderful walk back through the forest you learn quite a bit about the island. After getting your adrenaline rush you do a relaxing and enlightening tour of 3 wineries and one olive oil plant. Our favorite winery was Casita Miro, delightful set up Tapas style with 4 wines and food to enhance the experience. At Stonyridge you experience French style with a light lunch of quiche, salad, bread , grapes and cheeses. At Mudbrick you experience incredible views with a wonderful garden. All total you taste 10 different wines. At Rangihoua Estate you experience the whole olive oil production and get to sample 4 different olive oils, Great learning experience at each winery and at the olive oil production. Learned different parts of the business, really enjoyed Orlando at Miro and the passion he displayed. Our bus driver Horst was fun. Great day overall with the ferry rides and experiencing the island. Well worth it.”

Fantastic day beautifully planned out. Tour operators are fully knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. Views are unparalleled. Ziplining experience with a hike back through the forest was phenomenal. Wine tasting and olive oil tasting events were educational and so much fun. This booking was the highlight of our stay in NZ!!”

I loved this adult-oriented tour of the island! It started in the morning with a ferry ride from Auckland to Waiheke. We were met at the ferry terminal by a very friendly tour driver who took us to our zip line tour. We had never done this before, and it was so much fun. The guides were so were so helpful in getting us comfortable with the equipment and process, there was a lovely nature hike after, and the tour bus driver took us on a extra long scenic drive back to the ferry terminal, since we were running a bit ahead of schedule. The second part of the tour was a larger group on a big tour bus for a tour of 3 wineries and one olive oil tasting. The wineries were somewhat crowded at times. The wineries we visited had some very good wines and others that were just okay. The light lunch served at the first winery that was included with tour was pretty tasty (quiche, salad, cheese and crackers).”

Our guides were very friendly! We had a great time and the views were simply breathtaking. We had been ziplining several times before in Oahu, Maui, and the Dominican Republic, but this was by far the best. The facilities were start of the art, and the Waiheke Island views, foliage, and bush walk were remarkable.
The wine tours were very entertaining. Stunning views, good wine, and a delicious lunch consisting of quiche, cheese, crackers, and salad.”

We really enjoyed this day trip .
Easy ferry trip to waiheke from ferry terminal....just don't let the ferry ticket operator convince you to take a later ferry...you'll miss the zip lining if you do!
Comfortable minibus transfer to the zipline base.We had zip lined before but we really enjoyed the 3 different lines offered.
Very professional and fun experience. amazing views.
We then joined a bigger coach tour for our winery visits....again we enjoyed the different wines food and scenery on offer.
Well worth doing........”

Excellent combination tour. The two companies involved zip-line and wine tour worked well together to get us where we needed to be on time. We lucked out for both tours since we were visiting in the off-season. We were the only two people on the ziplining tour, so we had incredible one-on-one attention with the two instructors. Our safety was their first concern and they did a great job instructing us so we were confident and enjoying ourselves. Beautiful location with stunning views! They pick you up and drop you back off at the ferry terminal. The wait for the wine tour at the ferry is short after ziplining and the bus is small and comfortable. Our driver was a native of the island and full of knowledge and history. With only 7 people on the tour, she changed up her route to show us some amazing views. The three vineyards and one olive oil plantation were excellent choices. The lunch at the first vineyard was a fantastic quiche with family-style salad, bread, etc. The final vineyard had a wonderful tour that walked you through the vineyard. This tour is a must if you like a little thrill and a little chill.”

A great day to spend flying over the treetops and sipping wine. My wife and our 19 year old son enjoyed everything about this trip. The ziplining was exciting enough to keep my son engaged and not too exciting to scare my wife - nice balance. The wineries were all nice properties with great views. Highly recommend it.”

zip lining was great and three lines were perfect. there's a 30 minute hike after zip lining that was kind of pointless but you had to walk to get back to the top so it was necessary haha but the wine tasting tour and lunch was fabulous. At the first winery, for lunch we had frittata and salad and of course- WINE! They give you like three samples at the first winery and then you'll have to pay for your own glass after sampling and then the next two wineries is the same thing basically. but they were all so lovely at each place and everyone was so nice. I'd highly recommend this tour!”

This was one of our highlights of our trip. The zipline was somewhat short with 3 spots, so if you're a beginner, its a great way to zip for the first time. The Wine Tasting stops were outstanding and the people were very knowledgeable. Waiheke, or Wineheke as they would call it, is a must stop for a New Zealand stop. Lunch was fabulous and the views were outstanding.”

A really fun and adventurous outing. The ziplining was a blast! We zipped down three different runs, each run increasing in distance and speed. The zipline staff was very patient and encouraging. Do know that what goes down must come back up at the end of the runs there is an uphill hike that might be challenging for anyone with health/physical issues. Ziplining was a real thrill.
The Wine Tasting tours and Vineyard Lunch were also special. We went to three different wineries and an olive oil factory. The lunch was really good! A gluten free and vegetarian option was provided for those who had special dietary needs. The vineyards were absolutely beautiful, the wines divine! The package provided us a terrific experience!”

This is a MUST DO!!!! Best day tour I have ever been on. Waiheke island is so incredibly beautiful. You get to see amazing views ziplining and the wine tour is fabulous.”

I did this for my 53rd birthday with my husband and daughter. SO glad we did this - the zip lining was fun and exciting my first experience, and the vineyard tours and lunch were excellent. The guides at the wineries were very knowledgeable, and our bus driver was knowledgeable and funny. It is pretty much all day, but you will be back in Auckland by dinner time. Make sure you wear sunscreen and bring a hat and sunglasses! If you are considering this, don't hesitate! You won't regret it!”

Loved it. Waiheke is a beautiful island worth the short around 30mins ferry ride from Auckland. The girls at the ziplining were fantastic and very passionate about the bush area we wandered through, part of the money paid goes to conserving it. The lunch was fine and wine tasting was very good. The three vineyards we visited were stunning. Would definitely recommend this tour.”
