LOVE WAIHEKE ISLAND

- MORNING TOUR 

Experience the wonders of beautiful Waiheke at a leisurely pace on our small group tours. You’ll tour the island taking in its amazing beaches, stunning scenery and key attractions. You’ll “taste” why Waiheke has become famous for its food and wine culture. At key places you’ll have time to walk around, take photos and soak up the atmosphere.

 

You will be welcomed in a traditional manner outside the Piritahi Marae – just the first of the opportunities to learn of the culture and history of the island and its people.

 

We then drive the scenic northern route, taking in spectacular views of the Hauraki Gulf, native bushland, Enclosure Bay, Oneroa and Onetangi beaches

 

In keeping with our relaxed pace we visit just one winery so you can have a more in depth experience. Enjoy the vineyard itself and be treated to a very special ‘degustation’ wine experience – a selection of wines accompanied by a canape portion of its perfect match in food.

 

Waiheke has an olive growing industry with many boutique groves. We’ll call into one where you’ll be able to taste the different oils and see the many products for sale made from olive oil.

 

On the final leg of our tour we pass back through the seaside village of Oneroa the main hub of the island with its many shops, boutiques, galleries, restaurants and wine bars.

 

Guests can leave the tour at Oneroa or come along with us to the famous Cable Bay Vineyard for a sumptuous  “Taste of New Zealand” 2 course lunch. A delightful way to dine whilst sipping some more fine wine and taking in the stunning views.
