Essence of Waiheke
Apr 2021 • Business
Not only was the tour incredible and a must see but the lunch and wine were to die for too. most importantly the fabulous tour wouldn’t be complete without an amazing tour guide neither . Michael from Ananda was the best tour guide who also made our trip the amazing experience it was.
I am a travel agent from Australia and would highly recommend this tour company and guide. Thank you so much 🙏🏼
