What a perfect tour! We didn't know what to expect but came away feeling like we'd had one of the best days ever (aside from our wedding!). Wayne - you're a great host. Very knowledgable - from the history and culture to the vineyards and wines - and we never felt rushed. Such an enjoyable day. We'd recommend this tour to anyone - especially Kiwis who never see enough of their own backyard.Kent & Kathie, Whakatane

Hi Kent and Kathie, thanks so much for your lovely review which is very much appreciated! Cheers and best wishes, Jean and Wayne 🙂

Hi Lisa, thanks for your lovely review, we appreciate your taking the time to post this. Best wishes for a great Christmas and a very happy 2017! Cheers from us 🙂

Best tour on the island

Just signed up for our 4th Winery tour with you guys. It's the first and sometimes only trip we plan when we have visitors. Everyone loves it and we never get bored of this tour - the wineries are awesome, the island in itself is amazing and Jean & Wayne are just great. Thank you so much for an amazing day out. Look forward to our next one!

Hi Vanessa, sorry its taken so long - thanks so much for your lovely review, we do enjoy hosting you and your international visitors! Best wishes for a merry Christmas and a fabulous 2017 🙂


Hi Wayne, I hope everything is as beautiful as we left it in New Zealand! My family and I visited Waiheke a couple of weeks ago and you were our tour guide to the different vineyards. I just wanted to thank you so much for being such a great guide - you know so much about not only the wine industry but also the history of Waiheke and New Zealand. I am very serious about moving to New Zealand someday and so hopefully we will be able to reconnect whenever that day comes! Until then, take care!

Thanks so much for your lovely review, we were delighted to receive it - hope to see you again 'downunder' sometime!

A Wonderful wine tour on Waiheke

Apologies to Wayne as I promised to write this review when I got back to the UK from NZ. My wife, daughter and myself were over in Waiheke for a family wedding in Feb 2015. We were early and went for a meal where we met up Wayne and Jean. Wayne was taking a tour next day with some journalists from Australia and NZ and he asked if we'd like to come along. I'm so glad we did as the tour was truly outstanding. Wayne is incredibly knowledgeable and kept us informed and amused throughout the tour. He is a true gentleman. We visit 3 vineyards at Peacock Sky, Obsidian and Mudbrick. All were brilliant but our favourite was Peacock Sky where they gave us tasters to compliment the wine. A stunning introduction to Waiheke and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour is was superb! Many thanks to Wayne and Jean.

Alun thanks so much for the lovely review which is very much appreciated. Glad to hear your memories are so fresh a year later! Best wishes Jean and Wayne.
