Tam was an amazing guide, and all the wineries were absolutely beautiful. Even though it's winter it wasn't too cold and the views were still stunning. We took some great photos, found some new favourite wine, tried oyster shots, and learned a lot about wine and Waiheke (but not so much that it was overwhelming, just the right amount of lighthearted storytelling). If you're not looking to take photos of the vines (they're dormant in winter) then winter is a great time to visit and feel like you have the wineries all to yourself, it's a real experience! Thanks again to Tam and Enjoi, we had a great time

We had a fabulous time with Jenny on the tour. The stops were all fantastic and all of the staff at the vineyards were so genuine and friendly. Not to mention the food and wine itself was worth the trip. We will definitely be looking to book with them for all of our future Waiheke trips!

Karen was an awesome tour guide, full of knowledge and really enjoyable company!

Casual, informative and a lot of laughs. Our guide was very helpful.

Wonderful informed, Well worth the tour. Go the extra mile.
