Grant is such a great host! Very flexible and we unfortunately missed our ferry due to max capacity and he waited for us to catch the next one! He also played some sick tunes for the drives and gave us fab options to check out after the tour ended! 👌 Highly recommended

Had such a great time! Myself and a group of friends were in Auckland for the weekend and had always talked about doing a winery tour on Waiheke. We had previously visited wineries in Queenstown so expectations were high. We were welcomed by Grant and had two other groups join us on the tour. We visited boutique wineries that were very original and rustic, while for lunch we enjoyed platters amongst the grapevines. We luckily had enough time to visit a gin distillery that Grant had mentioned made great slushy cocktails. The entire group begged Grant to take us cause it was such a hot day, we were soon sipping on gin tasting boards and slushy cocktails in front of an amazing view of the Hauraki Gulf. The whole experience was really amazing and fun. One downside though would have to be the very little amount of wine given for tastings. However, this is more a matter for each winery per say not Waivino.

Even if you have been to Waiheke a few times before, this Wine Tour with Grant is a must. You get the chance to taste amazing wines in cute and hidden boutique style wineries. Grant is a very knowledgeable guide, so that you will learn about and see lots of hidden treasure of the island.

Brilliant, fantastic tour around the beautiful island. Couldnt have done this with out Grant. Highly recommend Waivino and will def do this again. First time ever and glad to get the high class experience to explore Waiheke Island on a wine tour with a good group of friends including my son.
