Small-Group Wine Tasting Experience on Waiheke Island
Discover the wine scene of Waiheke Island on a wine-tasting tour that introduces you to some of the isle's best spots. With a guide, you'll taste boutique wines and meet local producers who provide the chance to get to know the island's culture a little better. Along the way, admire the native bush and vineyard scenery. Please note, ferry rides from Auckland are not included.
What to Expect
Hop on the 9:30am "Fullers" Waiheke Island ferry leaving from the downtown Auckland ferry terminal Pier 2. You will be greeted by your guide with a "Waivino Tours" sign as you step onto Waiheke Island and taken to the comfortable tour vehicle where the fun will begin.

On your way to the first winery, you travel along the northern ridge with beautiful views and your guide will point out amazing aspects of this unique ancient island. At the first winery you get to try some lovely wines in a gorgeous setting. The winemakers or the winery staff will tell you their story as you completely get into the relaxing Waiheke Island vibe. You will enjoy three wineries and your guide can arrange a segue into a lovely lunch (optional). Once you have seen and tasted enough for the day you will be transferred back to your awaiting ferry.

Fantastic Wine Tour!

I had some trouble finding a tour which would accommodate me as a single traveler, but Grant at Waivino was extremely responsive and welcomed me to join one of his tours. It ended up just being three of us today and the tour was great,...More

Thanks Kevin, It was great having you aboard. Yes there are plenty of solo travellers out there who are forced to do mass tours so it is nice to offer a more bespoke option. I will work on making this easier. All the best, see...More
