Your private tour of Waiheke Island begins at the Matiatia ferry terminal on arrival from Auckland (ferry ticket is your own expense). You will be met by your Maori guide as you disembark from the ferry.

Start off with a gentle, scenic walk along the beach then up through a regenerating native forest. Your walk continues to a headland with views to the north of New Zealand and west to Auckland city. After this vista, continue on foot for about 45 minutes to 1 hour before hopping on a comfortable bicycle for a 10-minute bike ride to a nearby vineyard.

Pass by farms with significant sea views until arrival at your destination and indulge in wine tasting with time to take in the beauty of your surroundings. This is the perfect place to enjoy a shared platter for lunch or alternatively, a gourmet picnic lunch can be provided to have at one of the many beautiful beaches. Afterward, pedal onward to the island's only marae where your guide explains the features of the Maori meeting place including the pohiri (welcoming ceremony).

From here, ride your bike along the southern shores of Waiheke Island before making your way to the main village, Oneroa. You'll find plenty of cafes, restaurants, unique shops, art galleries, and a beautiful white-sand beach. You may choose to end your tour here — it's a perfect place to stop and peruse the unique shops or stroll down to the lovely white sands of Oneroa beach — or be dropped off at the Matiatia ferry terminal for your return trip to Auckland in the afternoon.
