Highly recommend if you are coming to Auckland and to take the ferry over to discover Waiheke Island. Easy to do if you are with family or alone. Wine tour was nice and met some really great travelers. Views were breathtaking!

This is our first time to go wine tasting in a vineyard in this island of wines. This is a must-visit (a day tour is enough) when you're in Auckland for a couple of days only.

I prefer the hop on hop off... you may not get all the way around the wineries.. you may get stuck at 1 or 2 and really enjoy them... can that be bad?
