My wife and I booked the Wine & Cheese tour with Phil when we disembarked a cruise ship. Phil picked us up at the pier and after a wonderful day he dropped us at the airport. Much better and less expensive that a cruise ship tour/transfer. The booking, pick-up, drop-off, and the tour itself was great and we truly had... More

The two of us had the pleasure of touring Waiheke island with Phil. It was a great day filled with sights and wine tasting. Visited three excellent wineries and had a beautiful lunch at Mudbricks.... Phil was eager to explain and show us all we encountered, whether it be the wine or the sites. You can't go wrong with Phil!

My daughter and I spent the day on Waikee Island. Phil was fabulous. We went to three vineyards and had a delicious lunch at a five star restaurant with a beautuful view. We had a food pairing at one vineyard too. Phil knew we were interested in beaches and squeezed that in and a little shopping. I do think this... More

If you are looking for a nice day of wine tasting and dining on Waiheke Island, get in touch with Phil Parker. He took us to 3 excellent boutique wineries for tastings plus a fabulous 5 star lunch looking out at amazing views of rolling hills and ocean views. A perfect way to end a 2 week Australia/New Zealand Trip.

Phil was super, we were lucky it was only the 2 of us and we absolutely loved the 3 wineries he took us to. West Brook was amazing such a beautiful setting, although my favorite wine was from Soljans. Sorry I did nt buy the Port. Muriwai black sand is truly beautiful
