Sharon was SO accomodating of the many many scheduling changes our group had to do after booking - it took us almost 6 months to get over to see her and she was nothing but kind and understanding!!! The tour was super easy as Sharon gave us simple instructions, checked in on us the day before and as we docked at Waiheke, and was the most attentive and fun tour guide. The 3 wineries & lunch were beautiful - starting at Cable Bay and ending at Mudbrick. I highly recommend Sharon and her team at Waiheke Wine tours. Such good value!

From the moment Sharon greeted us with a friendly smile and wave on Matiatia wharf, we knew we were in good hands. Ushered to her modern and luxurious Mercedes van, we were kept entertained by her wonderful knowledge on all things Waiheke en route to our chosen vineyards. The scenery itself is absolutely jaw dropping, golden sand beaches and azure seas give way to palm trees, fields and vineyards. I am particular to a decent drop of red and Waiheke certainly does not disappoint, If you are looking for a bespoke wine tour, with excellent and friendly guides and superior transport, then we recommend you get in touch with Sharon who will ensure you have the most memorable experience.

We were looking for an amazing wine tour to take our friends upon from the South Island as they're very very fond of what wines the Canterbury region offers the world. They are also Te Runanga O Ngai Tahu and we wished to leave the best impression from Waiheke Island. From the moment we contacted Sharon at WWT, she couldn't be helpful enough and being extremely well travelled, the service from this business was outstanding. Thank you Sharon and team at Waiheke Wine Tours, we're definitely booking again and are going to highly recommend your business through contacts in Ngai Tahu Tourism. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!

I could not have asked for a better, well organised and fun time with a few overseas friends I had visiting from England. Sharon was nothing but amazing, well organised, informative, knowledgeable, very friendly and a lot of laughs. After meeting Sharon and having one of the best days ever, I wouldn't hesitate to book another tour with her. The vineyards we visited were amazing - both the food and the wines! So good knowing we have the voice of experience helping us make choices. Thanks again Sharon - look forward to seeing you again soon.

I’m not one to usually write reviews, but this review is needed. I booked my sisters hens party through Sharon at Waiheke Wine Tours, which was this Saturday just gone. I’d called and spoken to many wine tour companies prior to booking with Sharon, as I wanted a hens party where we could let our hair down and have a good time. Sharon assured me when booking with her that she would let us have fun and it wouldn’t feel like a strict tour, so I booked with her. I wish I didn’t. We’re grown woman in our 30’s and 40’s who know how to behave and carry ourselves. From the second we stepped foot on her bus, she set the tone that she didn’t want to be there, she treated us like we were children who didn’t know how to behave, and made us feel like this was the last place she wanted to be. This is before anyone had even had more than one glass of wine. We’re respectful woman, who completely appreciate rules and that you have licenses, and relationships with the vineyards etc, we get all of that. We paid almost $4000 to use Waiheke Wine Tours and I wish I never did booked with Sharon. When we were taken to each vineyard I would hear Sharon make comments to the staff there “good luck with them” etc, and we were taken to areas away from everyone else like dogs. Sure we drank on the wine tour like everyone does. But there was no way we deserved the treatment we received from Sharon. Before we had even started drinking she treated us like miss behaving children. Like we were an inconvenience to her day. Every single one of our 19 guests on the tour felt uncomfortable with her. They were too scared to even drink as they didn’t want to mess the tour up by upsetting Sharon. So thank you Sharon, for ruining my sisters hens party. One of the biggest days of her life, you made it so uncomfortable for every guest. Every single guest of our hen party told me to leave Sharon a bad review and that they have never felt so unwelcome before. The sober and non-sober guests, everyone. We’ve all been on plenty of wine tours on Waiheke previously though other companies and we would NEVER use Waiheke Wine Tours again, not if it were Sharon running it anyway. What a shame this is Sharon’s company, because if she had a boss I would be calling them today making them aware of what kind of person they have representing their company. It’s also a known thing from all of the vineyards that Sharon is like this, that she’s rude and unwelcoming as we complained to each vineyard about her and they all said she’s like this with all guests, that’s the reputation she has. Save your money, and book elsewhere. I spoke to Sharon about my issues on the day, but by that point it was too late she had already made us feel so unwelcome from the very start. Sharon you should never have booked a hens party if you hate working them so much. I completly appreciate that we were drinking and probably loud and rowdy, I get that, but that’s a hens party and that’s what I told you we would be upon booking and Sharon assured me that was fine. Clearly she says anything to get the bookings. Just so upset with the treatment we received, we’ve never been made to feel more unwelcome through any company in my life. I have also posted this review on Google.
