“Ananda Winery Tour - Top Quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

We booked a wine tasting tour at short notice from the tour desk at the Ferry Terminal in Auckland. We got a personalized afternoon tour of three good wineries with a good lunch at the third. We saw the Fuller's Tours come and go in 20 to 40 seater buses while we enjoyed wineries suiting our timing with our guide. Well worth the extra dollars to go with Ananda Tours.

“favorite part of vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

We love this island and the wine tour company. It was easy to book, the tourguide was very nice and accomadating especially when we ran over the alloted time for the day. The wineries he took us too were so great. I can't wait to go back and stay for a few days and book them again to take us around.

“Simply Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2012

Me and my family were searching the best way to visit the vineyards, and we found Ananda in Waiheke site in the internet. Asking at the information center in Davenport Ananda was strong recommended as we would be in very good hands.
And the visit was great, Jenny , who is one of the owners, picked us on the ferry. She took us to four vineyards: Mudbrick, Kennedy Point, StonyRidge and Te Whau. This last one we have already chosen for lunch when we arranged the tour and Jenny has made the reservation before - which revealed fundamental as it was holiday and they were fully booked. She also showed us the astonishing views and took us to city center.
I surely recomend Ananda Tours instead of those big tours with a lot of people. We were five people visiting, so we could have much more attention in the wineries, specially on Mudbrick and Kennedy Point who were empty when we did the wine tasting.

“Second time and just as good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

We took the wine enthusiast tour 2 years ago and a a great time with tasting and the Mudbrick Lunch. This time brought my parents and did the same....great day of sampling wine, sight seeing, and a few laughs.

Mudbrick lunch and taking the time to walk around the property is great. Peacock Sky Rose was my favorite. Cable Bay wines were not quite as good as others.

Regardless it's a great tour with Nick who tells some great tales.
