    Great views and wine!

    I had a wonderful time exploring Waiheke with Around Waiheke tours and Paul our tour guide for the day. The views are incredible and the wine was great. I enjoyed Kennedy Point the best and would highly recommend their wine and tasting room. I went as a solo traveler and felt very welcomed by the group. We had amazing weather which of course made the experience that much better. Going with a group the first time was a good way to see a lot of the island and learn about all the different places to visit. I will definitely be back to explore the island more!

    Great Time - Mix Up with Lunch

    The experience overall was great. The wineries were excellent, and the employees their great. The scenery was beautiful and we made stops to take pictures. However there was a mixup over which tour we were doing so our tour guide didn't give us the free time in Oneida to walk around and have lunch before we left, instead taking our lunch orders and telling us it was included. Lunch was great, but I was starving by the time we got there because I was expecting to eat lunch in Oneida before we left, and it was more expensive than what we could've eaten in Oneida. Just would like the program people to be more prepared, but the tour itself was great.

    Great! Really friendly tour guide

    Great! Really friendly tour guide .. Waiheke Island is a must to explore and the vineyards are fab. I bought my ticket on a voucher site so paid about $40 so I am judging my experience on this. Had a lovely day.
