We enjoyed an amazing day with Phil! He is friendly, relaxed, and knowledgeable. We visited several wineries and enjoyed the drive around Waiheke Island. We stopped at several beautiful vistas and enjoyed the laid-back vibe of Waiheke. Phil is very knowledgeable about the region and about wine in general. If you must choose, I would definitely recommend this tour over... More

We were visiting from the US and found Phil online while looking for unique adventures in the area. Phil was a great tour guide and made every effort to ensure we had a fun time. He was on time and picked us up at the hotel. We started by doing a small hike and taking some photos atop Mt Eden.... More

We had a fantastic tour with Phil. We were able to visit several local wineries, all with a short drive from Auckland. He went out of his way to help us find wines we loved. His cheese board was amazing.

My sister, a seasoned wine tourist, treated my somewhat experienced mother and completely uneducated (wine lover) self to this tour. The day started with a very prompt Phil picking us up from our lodge. On to retrieve two wine companions and we were off. Mt. Eden was a beautiful stop with a 365°view of Auckland. We were a bit concerned... More

My friend and I did the half day wine tour with Phil while being in Auckland for just a few days. Phil picked us up and dropped us off right at our hotel which was so convenient. He was very knowledgable about the wine and it showed through. We were able to alter the tour based on our personal preferences... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Waiheke Island with Phil. He was very knowledgeable of the island and quickly catered the trip to us. He was very friendly and we had a blast. Phil was thoughtful, personable and accommodating. He was well prepared and was able to also give us advice on the rest of our trip to New Zealand.... More

Phil picked us up at our cruise ship and gave us a 4+ hour tour of Auckland and then brought us to the airport for our flight home. He was very accommodating. When our ship informed us that we had to disembark earlier, Phil came and got us at an earlier time. He was a wonderful tour guide. He drove... More

Phil started our wonderful tour by taking us up to a lookout point where we had a wonderful view of Auckland and an extinct volcano crater about 10,000 years old. We went to three wonderful wineries and had a delicious lunch at one. Phil provided history of the surroundings we were passing through as well as the vineyards. Phil provided... More

Phil provided a guided wine tour to Waiheke Island with a visit to 3 of their excellent wineries, Mud Brick, Peacock Sky, and Goldies. We really enjoyed the trip and speaking to the winery operators who provided tastings that Phil coordinated each stop, along with an included sit-down lunch at the beautiful Mud Brick winery.

We loved Phil as our tour guide! We told our travel agency that we were big wine tour lovers and foodies and they scheduled us with Phil's company, which was so worth the time and money. He took us privately around the Waiheke Island to 3 different wineries, which we would have never known anything about it if it weren't... More
