My friend and I did the Gourmet Food and Wine tour and could not recommend it enough. The lunch at Stonyridge was super yummy, the oysters and wine at Kennedy Point were divine, Peacock Sky and the Olive Oil Estate were also deliciously good. What added to the day though was our friendly and informative guide, David! David was absolutely... More

We have been on many wine tours and tastings in places like Napa, Sonoma, Montepulciano, Hunter Vally and Yarra Valley. The Waiheke wineries had one of the best approaches to tastings that we have experienced. The Amanda tour guide provided a nice little tour of this small island and then took our group of 10 to 4 wineries. What was... More

Since we had a group of six (two of which were children) we decided to do one of Ananda's private tours. The company was very responsive to my emails while we were working on setting it up -- changing the itinerary around based on my feedback. They purchased our ferry tickets for us in advance and Jo was waiting for... More

I spent a beautiful day with guide Niki Walker on Waiheke Island. We explored beaches, art galleries, and wineries. She is fun, knowledgeable and clearly loves this island. For more info and pictures check out my Auckland blog at travel well fly safe dot com.

On the island during the once in 100 year flood we wondered if the tour would go ahead! In a very rapid reply to our inquiry we waited for our driver to collect us from our accommodation. Simon duly arrived in the pouring rain and we were on our way - the token kiwis among the overseas visitors. The vineyards... More

Great wine tour. Included knowledgeable and very likable guide. Visited 4 wineries including an outstanding lunch at one of the wineries. This was a small group tour with 4 couples - very relaxing day with great company.

We really enjoyed our day with Ananda Tours. After a rocky start which was not their fault - we were told to catch the 10 am ferry from Auckland, but it filled up and left early! However, the tour people were terrific, told us to catch the 10:30 ferry and they would send a guide to meet us, which they... More

We had a great day out with ananda tours at Waiheke island. We did their one day wine tasting tour which included pick up from the harbour, transport to three vineyards on the island, 4-5 tastes of wine in each vineyard and transport back to the port. The island itself is beautiful and you should come just for that but... More

We were only on Waiheke for 24 hrs so we booked a private tour. Booking was very easy and Ananda was great at communicating with us. Pickup was from our hotel. Nico was a great local guide and offered lots of interesting insights/conversation as we drove around the island. The lunch platter at Stonyridge was huge: meats, cheeses, dips, bread... More
