Our group had a fantastic day on Waiheke on Sunday, Grant was an absolute legend! The day was perfectly planned visiting some great wineries for tastings and then onto a devine lunch down at Onetangi Beach. Grant was lovely and chatty, relaxed but also kept us moving when we needed too. He also took the stress out of the day by planning everything so we just got to enjoy the moment. Couldn't recommend his services enough, very knowledgeable about the Island and wine. Thanks again, I'm sure it wont be long before we are back!…

We booked a wine tour with Waivino for a friends birthday, we arrived early in Waiheke and our guide Grant was already there, it was only the 4 of us so we started our tour straight away with a scenic drive with great stories about Waiheke by Gran, our first winery Obsedian was great and we enlisted to their wine club and ordered a case of 12 with the 7 varieties we tasted. The wineries got better and better and after signing up to another Wine club at Awaroa wines which wines are organic and great we had a quick stop at Passage Rock before we got dropped off for lunch at 372 which was amazing, we got picked up around 3.30pm. Grant took us for one more tasting at Jurassic ridge which has amazing wines as well before dropping us of to the Ferry. Grant knows his game very well and we will be back to discover a few more wineries on our next tour!…

What an awesome day! Grant knows his stuff and is a great laugh too. His local knowledge is impressive as is his selection of wineries. The minibus was spotless and Grant has great chat, sharing local knowledge. Grant was accommodating and was happy to book our lunch table too. We went with his suggestion and it was delightful. Couldn't of asked for a better guide and tour. If you want a great day out, book with Waivino.…
