    Waiheke Island
    Stop: 6 hours - Admission included
    If you are coming from Downtown Auckland, you will need to catch the 10am Fullers ferry to Waiheke Island.  Please arrive at the terminal 20 minutes before your ferry departs as ferries fill up quickly (especially during the Summer months) and tickets are sold on a first in line first served basis. Your tour guide will meet you when you arrive at Matiatia Ferry terminal at approximately 10:35am and will be holding a WaiTiki Tours sign. If you are already on Waiheke Island just let us know where you're staying and we'll arrange to pick you up from your accommodation. Your tour will drive you through the main village of Oneroa and past Oneroa beach. We will take the back streets past gorgeous ocean views and stop at Palm Beach where we will take a brief bush walk down to a lovely lookout with views stretching out to The Coromandel Peninsula & Great Barrier Island. You will then have a chance to meet some lovely local Waihetians when we visit a local cafe for your morning tea or coffee or if you are booked on a Saturday we will visit Waiheke's local craft/farmers market.  Your tour will then make it's way to a small boutique vineyard for a wine tasting.  The quality of wine is award winning and we are sure you will love it.  After your wine tasting we will take a scenic drive past Waiheke's longest beach and onto your next stop for lunch (not included in tour price)  This will be at another beautiful Waiheke vineyard and will be where you can enjoy a second tasting. Your tour will then make its way past some more breathtaking scenery and onto the third boutique vineyard for the final tasting.   Pending seasonal availability you may also have the opportunity to taste some local extra virgin olive oil/honey, feed some local Alpacas by hand,  sample some local Craft beer or enjoy a swim at a local beach. At the end of your tour your guide will either drop you at the ferry terminal for your 4pm ferry back to Auckland or your Waiheke Island accommodation, or if you wish to spend the last few hours of daylight in Oneroa Village or at another vineyard enjoying the sunset then it's only a short walk to the ferry terminal. Small groups make for fun and flexibility so you can really get to know your fellow travellers. You will be taken off the beaten track where the big buses can't venture.

We loved our day with Natalie and her little dog Shanti. Natalie picked us up in her minivan from our friends house. The tour took us around 3 vineyards and a stop off at Ostend market. It was very well paced, informative and most importantly fun! Natalie was punctual, easy to communicate with and relaxed. Would highly recommend Waitiki Tours for your visit to Waiheke

This was the best way to see the island. When we arrived at the ferry dock, Nat met us and took us on a drive to the beach, where we hiked and saw the beauty of the coastline. She detailed history of the vineyards where we were going to visit and gave plenty of time to enjoy each visit. Nat was a great guide and knows the island well. Each vineyard we visited allowed time to walk around, to take pictures as well as enjoy the wine tasting. This was a wonderful tour with a knowledgeable and professional guide. Highly recommend it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first Waiheke experience on this tour. Nat was a fabulous host who immediately made us feel comfortable and relaxed and Shanti the dog was an absolute sweetheart! We loved the variety of destinations we visited, the informative & knowledgeable commentary from Nat and the options provided to ensure everyone on the tour was able to have maximum enjoyment. The scenery was stunning and the wine was fabulous. Only downside was the lunch where the venue was disorganised, understaffed and only average food but it may have just been the very busy day we visited. Overall we loved our day on Waiheke and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Wai-tiki Tours!

This is a wonderful tour to see all of Waiheke Island. Natalie Patterson was the perfect guide. She knew the history of the island and the different points of interest and best viewing sights. She knew all about the animal, bird, and plant life on the island. She knew the things we were most interested in and was able to make reservations so we were able to see and taste everything we wanted. The love she has for her island shows through entire trip. I would highly recommend this tour company and if we are ever fortunate to return, we would gladly rebook again with Natalie.

I joined this tour of Waiheke Island when another tour provider was no longer able to accommodate me on their trip. I had a delightful day exploring Waiheke Island with the host Nat, and the other guests.

I especially enjoyed the relaxed approach that Nat had to sharing the interesting aspects of the island with her guests and that while the tour included visits to some wineries, including lunch and tastings, that it was also much more than this, and provided a sense of the spirit of the island. There were many beautiful spots on the tour to pause and enjoy the scenery. I highlight recommend you stop off for an ice cream in Oneroa and walk it off back down the hill to the ferry terminal.

We had a wonderful day exploring the island and enjoying great wine. The views and the beaches were great. We were the only two for the tour and when she found out we were bird watchers also, she tailored the tour to include some great wildlife areas. I highly recommend this tour! The ferry ride was also enjoyable too!

We had an enjoyable trip around Waiheke Island with lots of wine tasting, which we highly recommend. Nat was a great tour guide who takes you to the best spots on the island, which I’m sure you would miss out on if you were with a larger tour group.
