We booked extremely last minute (the night before a 10am start). Nevertheless, of all the many winery tours I have participated in, Grant's has by far been my best experience. You go down the road less traveled and are treated to wineries which most big companies do not go to. It feels far more personal and personalized. I would recommend to everyone, from wine novices to connoisseurs.

Waiheke really has a magic flow which in most cases we can tap into. This day we were in that magic. Thanks you for your kind review. Cheers Grant

We had the best day on Waiheke.....had not booked a tour but met Grant by chance and he took us around his lovely island. We simply say, book with Grant! Great host and historian. If you want to see the hidden gems in Waiheke then go with Waivino, lovely wineries, delicious lunch and when I said I wanted to buy a pair of earrings, but it was after 4 and the store had closed Grant saw the lady that worked at the store who was headed home and he convinced her to open the shop back up so I could get my earrings Thank you Grant and we'll see you again for another tour soon.

Thank you so much. Sorry I didn't respond earlier. That day was special right up to the end where the lovely lady took the trouble to open up the gallery again when she should have been heading home and for you to find those beautiful earrings that had been waiting there for you. Then you both visited me a month later with another friend for another tour. You really do get a sense that things fall into place out here. I guess it is being closer to nature but it seems like there is more to it.

Grant our tour guide was brilliant. He was prompt at pick up, welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. He had organised a great afternoon at some superb wineries with spectacular vistas. Most of all, Grant was very accommodating of our needs and prepared to go the extra mile to ensure we had a fantastic experience.

Thank you for your positive energy guys. Waiheke responds well to open minded people. The wine, food and olive oil are some expressions of this ancient and somehow wise island.
