Sample mouth-watering Waiheke food and wine on this delicious tour. The excursion gives you an opportunity to taste the essence of Waiheke Island.
Following a 40-minute scenic cruise across Auckland Harbour, join your tour guide and head to Stonyridge vineyard. It is there that you will enjoy a wine tasting, as well as light lunch amongst the wonderful vineyard settings.
You'll then depart to the award winning Rangihoua Estate for an introduction to the splendor of Waiheke's olive-growing industry and an olive tasting.
A stop at Casita Miro will leave you enchanted with the tastes and feelings of the Mediterranean. The tour ends with tastings at the beautiful Mudbrick Vineyard while enjoying stunning views over the Hauraki Gulf.

We were put on a full large bus of 37 people for this tour. While the tour was nice, it was certainly not what I expected.

Everyone had a blast on this trip. The wineries that we visited were very informative and the scenery at the wineries was awe inspiring.

The wineries were wonderful and our guide did an amazing job. He was excellent!
Great tour. Informative, good service and beautiful island. Only problem was the 4PM ferry was a small ferry,and very busy with locals plus the tourists from the ship. There were more people wanting to get on versus seats available. However, our tour guide was able to get us on the ferry. As the same company ran that as the tour they may want to consider which ferry to run at this time in the future.

The excursion was great. We enjoyed all three stops. Each was informative and it was interesting to taste the different wines and beers. We barely made it back to the ferry in time to get back to our ship in Auckland. The only reason we got on the ferry on-time was because the driver spoke with the ferry staff and they let us cut in line in front of a large number of people. The people left behind were not happy. Timing of this tour needs to be better.
