Activity Overview
Waiheke is famous for its wines, with delectable Syrah and Bordeaux blends topping the list when it comes to wine varieties that this region is famous for. However, there is so much more to this island than amazing vineyards and skilled winemakers. So, we though that we would combine a traditional winemaking tour with the opportunity to experience some of Waiheke's other attractions. Thus, our unique Waiheke wine tours were born!

Our full and half day tours let you take breaks from the business of tasting wine to swim in the sun splashed sea, rove through breathtaking nature trails and olive groves, and explore some of the island's most buzzing bars. As well as wine tasting tours, we also offer opportunities for craft beer and olive tasting experience.

Choose our gold tour for sunbathing, both beer and wine tasting, a degustation experience, a beach swimming and sunbathing slot, a tour of a vineyard and some delicious lunch options. Alternatively, opt for the silver tour, which is much the same except lunch is at a cafe by the sea.
