I cannot recommend Potiki Adventures enough! Bianca is an amazing host. She was extremely welcoming to our group, and she provided a great introduction to the culture and history of Waiheke and New Zealand. If you're visiting Waiheke, this is a must-do experience!

Amazing trip to Waiheke. Bianca was very knowledgeable about the island and was able to add a personal touch to the experience. It was incredible to not only see the island, but to connect with the culture of it as well. High recommendation.

Kia ora! Thank you for your review. We really try to keep a balance between the 'touristy sites' as well as taking people off the beaten track. I hope you're having a great time exploring the rest of Aotearoa! Nga mihi, Bianca
