Great local insight to Waiheke island
My husband and I were looking for a small group tour of Waiheke Island that would allow us to get a feel for the island life, as well as taste some great food and wine. So glad we found this one amongst all the other ones advertised! There were four of us in the group overall and we had a great day being shown around the island by Nat and her gorgeous and placid dog Shanti. Over the course of the ... more day we visited two great wineries for a tasting, which both provided really informative and engaging tastings, had coffee in a cute cafe, and visited a couple of beaches (too cold for a swim!) and lookout spots to take in the great scenery of the island. Our lunch spot (another winery) was also a great place with a range of local food and we loved hearing Nat’s stories about the island as we drove around in her comfortable van. We also really loved being able to hang out and have a cuddle with Shanti the dog! Being animal lovers, going on holidays and not being able to see our cat or our family’s dogs for a couple of weeks can be a bit strange so it was nice to be able to hang out with a furry friend for the day. Even if you’re not a dog lover- this dog is so cute and well behaved that you wouldn’t be bothered by her at all!https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g285729-d10859516-r573622166-WaiTiki_Tours-Waiheke_Island_North_Island.html#
