Board your ferry at Auckland’s Ferry Terminal for a relaxing 40-minute cruise to Waiheke Island, a bucolic combination of farmland, forest, beaches and seaside villages. You might think you’re in France when you see the vineyards, olive trees, and lavender fields!

Upon arrival at the island, you’ll be greeted by your tour driver and taken by air-conditioned coach to Stonyridge Vineyard, one of Waiheke’s first wineries and a specialist in Bordeaux-style red wines. Enjoy a tour of the vineyard followed by a wine tasting and light lunch.

After lunch, you’ll head to the award-winning Rangihoua Estate for a tasting of their olive oils. See the olive orchards and a demonstration of harvesting techniques, then learn about the process of making extra virgin olive oil. Finally you’ll sample a variety of olive oils in the estate’s tasting room.

Enjoy a visit to Casita Miro before proceeding to the last stop on your tour, Mudbrick Vineyard. Mudbrick Vineyard is a winery and restaurant with stunning views overlooking the Hauraki Gulf. Savor the final wine sampling amid lush gardens and vineyards.

At the end of the tour you’ll have the option to return with the tour bus to the wharf for a late-afternoon ferry ride back to Auckland. Alternatively, you can choose to stay on the island and return at your leisure. You’ll be provided with a complimentary All Day Bus Pass that allows you to further explore Waiheke Island on the public bus.
