Jo, our guide made the trip exceptional!
Julie_U, Sept 2023
We really enjoyed this wine tour. Our guide, Jo was amazing. She took the time to explain everything to us. Waiheke island is beautiful. It exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful time. We highly recommend.
Great tour!
Jules, Jul 2023
The wine tour was lovely. We visited 3 wineries (2 of which were really good!) the views from all three were absolutely amazing. Our tour guide Jo was delightful! I highly recommend the tour
Delightful day drinking
Rebecca_S, Jan 2023
Craig was our driver and he was very personable and fun. He waited for us straight outside the ferry dropoff and got us situated. Wine tastings were fun. I'd highly recommend staying at Mudbrick for food and watching the sunset before the ferry. You can call a reasonable taxi to get you back.
Must try this winery trip

The wonderful commentary by Brooke- an islander herself and married to a wine maker. The group bonded over lunch and the first wine tasting and laughter was the music of the day
Very Nice Day
Erin_M, Nov 2022
It was a very nice day. Was picked up by ferry. She had a sign with my name. We had lunch platter and tasting at first place. Drove by beach and stopped for tasting at highest point. Ended with a last tasting. I was having a nice time so was able to stay later and walk 30 min to a later ferry. Had a very nice day.
