About this activity
Take the 9:00am Fullers ferry to Matiatia Wharf at Waiheke Island where your driver will greet you there with a welcome sign.
You will visit an award-winning olive oil mill, followed by two vineyards, each offering a range of gourmet tastes to accompany their wines. Treats may include oysters straight from Te Matuku Bay, wild honey, the famous local green herb spread and artisan cheeses.
Afterwards, enjoy a platter lunch at one of our top vineyard restaurants. After lunch you will be returned to your accommodation or to the ferry back to Auckland.
After the completion of the tour, you will be taken back to the wharf where you can catch the 3:00 ferry or choose to be dropped off in the village if you wish to say on the Island longer.

Our guide Cameron was excellent. Knowledgeable and provided some interesting stories and history about the island. Lunch was outstanding. This tour provides a great overview and fun experience. Highly recommended.

This is the same review I posted on Tripadvisor Catching the ferry from Pier 2 in Auckland was easy enough. The pier was short walk from our Airbnb in the Britomart area. Unless you are staying on Waiheke Island, I would recommend you purchase round trip tickets for the ferry from here, that way you dont have to get them from the office at Matiatia Wharf on Waiheke Island, seems to be more convenient this way. The ferry ride was perfect since the weather was nice so the boat didnt rock too much, that is great for someone like me who doesnt have their sea legs. I did take something for that before the ferry ride just in case. The tour for us started the minute we left the pier in Auckland as taking in the views of Auckland and approaching Waiheke Island was awesome. As we disembarked the ferry at Matiatia Wharf our tour guide, Simon, met us and a very nice couple from Italy who was part of our tour which brought the total group count to 5, which was pretty nice. Simon was very professional and friendly with a great sense of humor. He pointed out places of interest, mentioned history and interesting facts about the island as we made our way around the area. In between each winery and points of the tour he stopped at scenic areas for us to rest and take in the views, snap some photos and just enjoy ourselves. Our first tour stop was the olive oil farm, a very interesting experience and we got to sample the best olive oil that I have ever tasted it was very fresh and flavorful. We stopped at 3 boutique wineries after that at each one had its own unique flair. I am by no means a wine expert, but the wines we tasted here were the best I have ever had. I never understood the complexities of wine pairings but I have a better understanding of it now. Our lunch was wonderful, there was more than enough to go around, very tasty and very pleasant company the couple from Italy. We left there entirely satisfied. When we left, Simon let us know he could drop us off anywhere between there and the Wharf if we were interested and gave us directions on how to get around, catch a bus or cab to get us where we needed to go. I was not feeling well from an ongoing cold and I had asked him to drop us off at the clinic they call it the surgeons office, he was more than willing to do so and before he left us he made doubly sure that we knew how to get back to the wharf. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested. It was well worth the cost I am surprised that they do not charge more. I am guessing if you convert the USD price to NZD price it would seem to be more. I booked this through Viator and the tour operator is Ananda tours, excellent service and excellent employees. From other reviews I have read, all their tour guides are wonderful, but I believe Simon is the best.

This was a great day and such knowledgeable and interesting people we meet on our trip. The group leader was fantastic and she was passionate about the island and this made it delightful. We got more than we expected and saw the must see sights. Fabulous views and food.
