Waiheke Tours

The Premium VIP Waiheke Experience

Are you ready for a truly VIP experience? This eight-hour tour is exclusively designed for the truly discerning wine fan. With a maximum of six persons, prepare to be spoiled on this  journey to highly renowned Waiheke Island boutique wine region. No Big Bus.
The 40-minute ‘Quick-Cat’ ferry journey across Auckland’s scenic harbour will set the tone for an exceptional day ahead. You’ll enjoy personal wine tastings at three prestigious wineries – from Mudbrick, Kennedy Point, Te Motu, Goldie, Batch, Tantalus and Postage Stamp.
With Family connections on Waiheke for over 30 years, I can guarantee a unique experience.

Lunch at Mudbrick:
“The lunch at Mudbrick was as good as any Michelin-starred restaurant in New York”

How it works

We meet up at the Downtown Ferry Building for a briefing and free hot drink. Then we all catch the Fullers Ferry to Waiheke Island wine region. 
I will have a vehicle ready and waiting for us at the Waiheke Terminal when we arrive.
Unlike most Waiheke Island wine tours, there are no hidden costs. One fee covers 3 private tastings, fine dining  lunch at famous Mudbrick, return ferry tickets, all Island transport in a private vehicle, plus a goodie bag. Fully personally escorted by me, from downtown Auckland and back.

Minimum of two people. Max of Six people.

  • $NZD 583 per person = $USD 353 approx.
  • PRIVATE TOUR exclusively for your group – add $NZD 150 per person ($USD 90 approx.)

Lunch at the world-famous Mudbrick Restaurant. You’ll start off with a delicious serving of warm home-made foccacia bread and olive oil to whet your appetite. Next, you get to choose your main dish, along with a side dish of your choice. As a bonus, your first glass of wine or beer is included! To end the meal, choose a tea or coffee.

If you’re planning to bring a larger group along, we recommend booking well in advance, about one month ahead of time. This way, we can make sure to have a mini-coach available to accommodate your whole group comfortably. This advice is especially crucial for weekend tour bookings and during the busy New Zealand summer season from September to April.

I look forward to hosting you and ensuring you have an unforgettable time.
