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!

Nicky picked us up from the Ferry and I immediately knew this was going to be a fun day! She is very knowledgeable about the island and thorough in her explanation! What we liked/loved: we enjoyed touring the area and learning about the island; we LOVED Obsidian Winery ~ this was our first stop and our wish is that it had been our last as we could have spent more time there! We liked our lunch and the amazing view at Thomas Bach’s Things that we didn’t care for as much: the lengthy stay at the beach area was a little long for our liking; the service at Thomas Bach’s left little to be desired ~ we could not understand anything the person that brought our wines said with his description of them; the wine at TB was not what we consider to be quality; the wines at Kennedy were good not great! Side note: If you are staying in Aukland and take the Ferry to Waiheke, just know that the cost is $46NZD/pp Overall, we had a full & fun day! Thanks, Nicky!

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.

My wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable tour with great commentary on the life and the scenery of Waiheke Island. The wineries were equal to any of the best in Sonoma or Napa. The van is in great shape and very comfortable. This tour is a great value.
