If you are after a relaxed pace day, with a small group of people this afternoon tour is a great option.

Discover some of Waiheke's 'off the beaten track' venues located amongst the rugged and beautiful landscape found at the Eastern End of Waiheke.

The tour includes a beer or wine tasting followed by a wine tasting and vineyard platter lunch. After lunch relax with a gin tasting and a gin cocktail at Waiheke Distilling Company and take in the stunning views overlooking Ponui, Pakatoa and Rotoroa Islands.

If you would like to linger a little longer on the island, we can arrange a dinner booking at a venue of their choice or drop off into Oneroa Village and enjoy the evening at leisure.

Includes tasting charges and platter-style lunch but not your ferry tickets.



We recommend catching the 12PM Fullers ferry from Downtown Auckland at the latest to make the tour start time.
