ABOUT US

We have shared the island’s scenic highlights and the character-filled boutique vineyards with thousands of lovely clients from all over the world since 2011. We’ve developed special relationships with passionate vineyard owners and winemakers who love sharing their extensive knowledge and wines with our guests.

Each day is different – we meet awesome people from diverse backgrounds and they go home with great stories to tell of their special day trip to our island ‘paradise’. In 2012 we gained Qualmark accreditation and we are in the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame – clearly our clients love what we do!

MOST IMPORTANTLY – you’re only dealing with us. When you ask for a quote or have a question; when we send lunch suggestions or need to communicate – its Jean you’re talking to! When you’re out on tour, Wayne is our primary guide and we have two other highly experienced local guides too – Glenn and Graham.

 

MEET US!

WAYNE EAGLETON is totally biased about Waiheke Island. He comes from a long line of Eagletons who arrived in NZ in the mid-1800’s and made their living on the waters of the Hauraki Gulf. He has a fascination for Maori place names and history and is a fount of knowledge about our island home. In his past life he has a corporate background in the wine & spirit and motor vehicle industries.  In his senior management role at Schofields of Newmarket he was the driving force behind the ‘Holden Difference’, the brand’s best practice model. Since 2011, he has hosted literally thousands of clients and shared his passion with Premium Tour clients, VIP corporate guests, conference groups, private tour and superyacht clients.

JEAN GOODBRAND is the planner that makes your day run smoothly. She’ll answer all your questions in advance, make your lunch reservation, organise your island accommodation pickup and drop off and assist with any other specific or general Waiheke Island queries. Jean’s well experienced with a lifetime spent in the travel and tourism industries.
