Can you organise lunch?
We can organise a lunch for you on the Island you just need to let us know the level of lunching you are looking for so I will ask you specific questions so we get it right and put you in the right place for your group. We have excellent relationships with the Vineyards and I am a foodie myself so don’t worry you are in good hands.
Do I need to book?
The majority of the vineyards have their cellar door open year-round. However, you’ll find that the most popular vineyards require you to book in advance. We build the tour for you.
Who lives on the island?
Those who are local to Waiheke will know that the island was once a haven for the artistic-type, those who were self-employed or could make a living from home. More recently the culture has diversified with an increasing amount of city-dwellers choosing to commute to Auckland daily from their idyllic paradise.
What if I don’t like wine?
There is a range of other tasting tours on Waiheke, from craft beer to gin or degustation tours. Honey and Olive Tour is popular too Talk to us about providing a custom tour.
Is There A Minimum Age Requirement?
Please be advised our tours are r18 due to the nature of our tours and the nz liquor licencing laws and you may be asked for id if you look under 25 at any one of our vineyards. Make sure you have photo id such as a passport or drivers license . If you have teenagers with you of course they cannot consume alcohol unless they are 18 and this is at our discretion not yours.
Is The Ferry Included?
None of our tours include ferry unless it is specified, you can book a ferry online, or we can do this for you, however it doesn’t guarantee a seat. You must queue for the ferry and hope you are early enough to get the ferry you want.
What If There Is A Lockdown?
In the event of a lockdown, Waiheke Wine Tours will honor your tour and gives you a full credit for your tour that you can use at any time in 4 years from when the tour was scheduled. If you cannot accept a credit we will refund.
