Lance led our afternoon tour, it was glorious! He was kind, hilarious and welcomed us back to the island. Ananda Tours was very helpful as we missed our initial ferry out to the island. We caught another and jumped straight into the tour. Lance was a native NZ'er and we had a small group (4 in total, 2 in my... More

We were impressed with the reviews on Tripadvisor of Amanda's private tours so we booked one with Jenny who customized the tour, the guide and the vehicle to accommodate us. We ended up taking the 9:00 ferry to Waiheke, rather than the 9:30. I called to let the office know as a courtesy. We were met by another of their... More

Lance our driver and guide was great. He was very knowledgeable about the Island and the wineries we visited. The vehicle was in good condition and clean. We would highly recommend Ananda Tours when visiting Waiheke Island.

Best way of visiting Waiheke island is definitely through Ananda's! My family and i went there for a private Gourmet Food and Wine tour and it was ALL WORTH IT. A private tour allowed us to enjoy the beautiful waiheke island before the rest of the crowd. Our tour guide (David), is not your average tour guide, his actions speaks... More

We enjoyed the Afternoon Artisan tour and visited four wineries with lunch at one in the early afternoon. The selection of wineries covered the spectrum of big operations and local estates. Our tour guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. The conversations in our group of world travelers added to the experience. Ananda Tours treated us first class from pick-up to drop... More

A fantastic day spent touring wonderful vineyards across Waiheke Island; Thomas' Bach, Kennedy Point, Obsidian with lunch at Casita Miro. The tour was expertly organised; each couple/group were driven somewhere different for lunch which worked really well you could have your own space. Our guide was fantastic; professional, knowledgable and fun - very passionate about the tour with great, insightful... More

We booked this wine tour at the last minute, and found that it did exactly what it said on the packet. We were picked up from the ferry and transported to three different vineyards on Waiheke Island . All were interesting to visit as they are all totally different. However I did feel that the whole process was a bit... More

My husband and I won the trip for a wine tour and a two night stay in the lovely Onetangi Beach Apartments. Ananda included pick up from Kennedy Point and drop off back again. Carolyn - the lady in the office who organised everything for us - was WONDERFUL! As someone who has worked in customer service for 15 years... More

Excellent vineyards, stunning costal and vineyard views and brilliant wine. What better day could you possibly have? The tour was relaxed and fun, just like all things NZ. There are many fantastic options available for lunch too. The mushroom pierogi at Te Motu was delicate and rich with flavour. I can't wait to return in March and do it all... More

We spent an entire day touring the beautiful Waiheke Island on a private tour with Ananda tours. We visited 3 wonderful wineries and another one for lunch. The wineries were beautiful along with some high quality wines. The lunch was fantastic with beautiful views. Niki was our guide and she was not only fun but very knowledgeable. I highly recommend...
