Overview

Around Waiheke Tours is an owner operated business in its seven year and we are the only independent tour operating seven days a week, all year round, on Waiheke. Our mission is to provide value for money tours to enable our guests to enjoy a fun relaxed day on beautiful Waiheke Island. We offer scenic wine tours as well as the original beer and wine tour. We focus on small owner operated vineyards and a small micro-brewery and endeavor to give a personalized experience. We operate comfortable 18 seater buses and we visit vineyards that are not generally accessed by the large corporate operators. We would love to have you as our guest on our unique island. Please don’t feel that because we off Waiheke’s best value tours that we offer an inferior product.
