We took an Ananda Wine Tour of Waiheke Island on a blowy, wet January morning. Simon greeted us punctually at the ferry terminal and we had the very good fortune of having some lovely folks along on our tour: a family from Australia and 2 young sisters from Connecticut. Simon was knowledgeable, helpful and totally fun throughout our experience. We... More

We organized a tour for 30+ through Ananda Tours, we visited an olive grove/winery, and two other wineries. The guides were informative, friendly and professional. We had lunch in the package, which was very good and they catered for two of our group with specific dietary requirements. An excellent day!

What a great way to spend a day! I did the Essence of Waiheke Wine Tour and would highly recommend it. I booked the ferry tickets at the same time as booking the tour, and got the 10:00am ferry from Auckland. Ferry directions were easy to understand, and I was met on Waiheke Island by our guide, Steve, holding a... More

This tour included two vineyards and one Olive grove/refinery and lunch. The bus driver and guide was a friendly and informative local who had interesting bits of gossip and an entertaining style. The experience was also enhanced by a friendly group of travelers who happily shared their views on the wines and scenes.

We went on the Afternoon Artisan Tour. Our guide Steve was very knowledgeable, not only about the wine scene, but the general history and flora and fauna of this delightful island, only thirty minutes ferry ride from downtown Auckland. We went to four different wineries and the tour included a lovely platter lunch (which was quite substantial) It was busy,... More

If it is your first time to visit Waiheke Island, I highly recommend to use The Essence of Waiheke Wine Tour which is run by Ananda Tours. Why? A couple of reasons. First,easy. Your guide is waiting at the exit of Waiheke pier with your name on a placard, so you will never get lost. Once riding on the bus,... More

We recently spent the day on Waiheke Island with Ananda Tours and Jo was our tour guide. We were met at the ferry by Jo and transferred to a very comfortable Ananda van. Our first stop for the day was at EcoZip Adventures, a very enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. Along the way Jo shared all her... More
