My husband and I booked a half day tour with Colin, and he was SO skilled at accessing what we'd like to see and do. He brought us to a honey farm, drove us in his beautiful Tesla to spots of natural beauty all over the island, and dropped us off for a scrumptious lunch at the BEST Italian vineyard outside of Italy! After picking us up again, we continued touring special places in Waiheke, and throughout, he was full of fascinating stories and information about the island. His tour was a daytrip highlight of our time in Auckland. What a charming and friendly gentleman!

We went on a luxury vine tasting tour on Waiheke and had a great trip. I always wanted to go in a Tesla and it was a great experience. Our tour guide and driver Colin has lived on Waiheke for more than 20 years and had a lot of stories to tell about Waiheke. He took us far beyond the normal tourist tracks and is a perfect gentleman and host, a lot of very British humor. Really fun to be around. We visited 3 vineyards and apart from the excellent wines the drive and scenery of Waiheke Island alone would have been worth the trip. Colin took us as far as the "Man O´ War" vinery on the other side of the island.

My sister and I were doing a day trip to Waiheke Island. I had never been to the island before and we wanted to maximise our time there, so we got the ferry over and had a nice lunch at Cable Bay Verandah restaurant. Collin met us in the restaurant just before 1:45pm (start time for afternoon tour)and asked some questions about what sort of wines we liked and what sort of experience we were after. So we weren't given the "one size fits all" approach (yay!)- but rather a relaxed, tailored experience. Be aware that a lot of wineries aren't open on a Monday- this didn't bother us- we still went to 2 great wineries- plus got to see a lot of beautiful places and beaches that we would have never found on our own or a bus tour. We particularly loved Obsidian winery- a beautiful more real and genuine working winery with an incredibly knowledgeable and friendly team behind their (very good!) wines. Collin took us to various sites around the island that allowed us to get a better feel for the place and we never felt rushed or pushed- it was a very relaxing and pleasant way to see the island, that felt like it was done on our own time- not someone elses. If like us- you hate bus trips, big tours or ticking boxes- this tour is more suited to you. We had a lot of fun and felt like we got to see the real Waiheke island from a real local! Thanks Collin! oh- and the Tesla is pretty nice too!!

We took this tour on Nov 01st. Our correspondence prior allowed us to tailor our day. If I had done more research I might have picked more wineries but that was on me not the company. Our guide, the owner, met us and was very informative and friendly. He drove us around where we did a wine tasting and gun shooting at Peacock Sky which was very awesome! We did lunch, drove around the Island and checked out a couple other wineries. The Tesla was a unique experience and a great way to check out Waiheke without being in a large boring tour group. Highly recommend!
