      Fabulous tour with Glenn
      Glenn took us to 3 Vineyards and for a tour of Waiheke Island which is well worth visiting, beautiful scenery including beaches and the vineyards Really informative, friendly guide and we had enough time on the trip which never felt rushed. This trip is definitely worth doing when in the Auckland area.

      Glen is a wealth of knowledge sharing with us the best of Waikiki, we visited a selection of great wineries and he managed to get us a table for a divine lunch at Mudbrick Wineries. Glen is entertaining and breaks the ice between guests making it such a great day. Thanks Glen and cheers 🍷

      The guide was sooo good
      On a cloudy and rainy day our guide was so good that we focussed on her and the experience. The skies cleared just before we left and we have the Madame Rouge we purchased from the town wine merchant after truly the best Fish and chips to reminisce. Just do it

      Touring Waiheke Island and it's wineries.
      We had a great day on the Waiheke island wine tour with host Glenn. As a resident of the island for 20 years, Glenn passed on his knowledge using his quirky sense of humour. We visited three excellent wineries as part of the tour. Recommended to anyone visiting the island.

      Fabulous day out
      We were treated to a great day out - we’d just arrived in Auckland and the weather was awful, but our guide Glenn was so much fun, the weather didn’t matter. We were picked up from the ferry port on the island at 10:45 and dropped back for the 4:30 return. We toured 3 wineries and sampled some fabulous wines, with no pressure to buy any We rounded off the trip with an amazing meal at Casita Miro restaurant (booked via WIWT) Would thoroughly recommend - an interesting way to learn more about wine and this beautiful island

      Great tour and guide.
      This was a great trip to see the wineries on Waiheke Island. Wayne our guide was fantastic. He is a local from the island knows a lot about the history of the island, which was very informative. He also has a great sense of humor. We visit four wineries that were off the beaten path, which was nice.

      A Highlight of Our 3-Week Trip to Australia & New Zealand!
      Tour was great! I highly recommend it. Glenn was an entertaining, knowledgeable tour guide, the three wineries were terrific and the scenery was magnificent. Our small group gelled nicely and we had a lot of fun together. Could not have asked for a better day.

      Great experience! Wayne was fun and knowledgable about the beautiful area, so you learn about more than just wine. He took us to three wineries that were all amazing, and secured lunch reservations on busy Christmas Eve day. A fantastic, fun experience, highly recommend!

      Highly recommended
      We did the twilight tour with Glenn who was one of the funniest tour guides we have ever had. We went to two wineries for tasting with stunning views and had a great dinner to end the evening. I highly recommend the experience. Only downside is the value for money. For the price charged, visiting only two wineries seems steep.

    Lovely day of wine tasting with a total of 8 people guided by Wayne. Enthusiastic tour by someone who takes pride in knowing the history of the area and in being of the area while remaining receptive and adaptable to the mood of the group. Surprisingly thoughtful and sensitive commentary regarding the role of Europeans in altering the natural landscape and Maori culture while introducing us to smaller winemakers. The wineries (Casita Miro, Obsidian, and Kennedy Point) were all presented by enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff who took their time with us and did not pressure us at all to buy. The tour ended with lunch at the local restaurant of our choice (Casita Miro was delicious) and we were brought back to the ferry. Well worth it.

    Waiheke wine tours were brilliant! Nicky was a brilliant guide and took us to some excellent wineries where she was able to demonstrate the close relationships that she has as a Waiheke local. It was a very intimate trip, with only three of us in the group, and we were able to learn about the island from a resident, and taste some of the best reds around. The support team are so lovely and, throughout lockdown and other challenges with the trans-Tasman travel bubble, kept us informed and checked in. Do yourself a favour, book with Waheke wine tours and have the best experience!

    All the arrangements went like clockwork. Our guide (Graham) was excellent and gave us a lot of Island history as he drove us to the vineyards. The day had been planned well and we enjoyed spending time and chatting with our 6 other trip guests. The lunch at The Shed was just exactly right and we all enjoyed our 'small plate' choices.Casito Miro was our favourite visit because of the Miro-esque mosaics all done by the vineyard owner.

    We decided to do this wine trip, loved every minute, picked up by the ferry and taken to three wineries and then taken to the lunch restaurant I had selected. Transported back to the ferry for departure. Very hot day and given a bottle of water which was appreciated.

    Jean was wonderful to communicate with and very understanding when things would change unexpectedly. Niki and Jean are professional, fun and dedicated to making sure you learn about the island and enjoy the best of its wine. The hosts at the wineries were amazing and I could see the close relationships they had with them paying off. I went with a group of girls and we all couldn’t stop talking about how amazing the tour was and in pouring rain and wind as well! Thanks for the best tour ladies :)

    My wife and I had one of the best days with our guide Wayne from Waiheke Island Wine Tour. As newbies to this wine tasting experience, we were guided nicely through some of the awesome vineyards on Waiheke Island. We have a new appreciation for wine now, so we would like to acknowledge all of the passionate wine making people of the island.

    Waiheke Island Wine Tours were so great at communication prior to the tour & the driver/guide was fantastic - he knew so much about the island, vineyards & wine. The 3 vineyards we visited were quite varied but all had delicious quality wines with very knowledgeable wine experts. The locations & views at each stop were also incredible. It was so nice to be driven around the island, picked up & dropped off to the cellar doors & ferry, plus lunch at our choice of restaurant. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see the island & experience it's fantastic vineyards.
