Full description
If you're after a relaxed-pace day, with a small group of people then this afternoon tour is for you. Depart on the 12:00 PM ferry from Auckland over to Matiatia Wharf on the island where your guide will meet you.

Begin with a drive along the scenic northern route, taking in spectacular views of the Hauraki Gulf and beyond to the Coromandel Peninsula. Enjoy engaging and informative commentary along the way from your experienced guide who is intimately familiar with Waiheke’s history, culture, people, and produce. Enjoy some of Waiheke’s scenic highlights as well as visits and tastings at three boutique vineyards and a micro-brewery.

Sample wine carefully paired with morsels of tempting food and locally-produced food items. Savor an excellent platter-style lunch in a relaxing location set amongst vines and an olive grove before your final vineyard visit. The tour returns you to Matiatia Wharf in time for the 6:00 PM ferry. Or, if you would like to linger a little longer on the island, then chat with your friendly guide. They can help arrange a dinner booking at a venue of your choice or drop you off into Oneroa Village so that you can enjoy the evening at your leisure.
