Great wine tour in a small van with 8 total guests. It included an efficient pickup from the ferry. The driver was very knowledgeable on both the history of the island and the wineries. Also had a great lunch at the shed!

What a great experience and opportunity to meet new people. The event was well organised and we sampled some fantastic wines at great vine yards. Wayne was a brilliant host and very knowledgeable of the island and wine industry. The day was completed with a great lunch at our choice of Vineyard. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone.

He really knew his stuff! We went to three different wineries and tasted the most delicious wines and snacks. For lunch, we went back... More

Wayne picked us up at 10:10 am on the dot from our Air BnB on the island. He was amiable and full of history and humor about the island. The wineries (To Moto, Miro, and Obsidian) were beautiful with excellent wines and hosts. Great half day winery getaway for singles or couples. Lunch at Casita Miro was very good but... More

Good information and great tour on Waiheke. It was great tour if you just want to go for a day and see island and enjoy some good wines. We could choose a fantastic walk among mounters and beautiful views before we get home.
