Ultimate All Day Waiheke Island Wine Tour


This magnificent relaxed full day wine tour offers you all the features of the Love Waiheke Island guided tour.


$225.00 NZD



The Ultimate full day tour offers you all the features of the “Love Waiheke” wine tours but with extra time for a leisurely lunch, free time to explore Oneroa at your own pace and all transfers to / from your accommodation or the ferry.

For details of your morning experience see Love Waiheke Island Tour description.

After all the morning’s activity you’ll be getting hungry so we head to your lunch venue for a sumptuous “Taste of New Zealand” shared platter lunch. A leisurely, delightful way to dine whilst sipping some more fine wine and taking in the stunning views.

Following lunch we transfer you back to the seaside village of Oneroa, the main hub of the island with its many shops, boutiques, galleries, restaurants and wine bars. We’ll drop you at the top of the main street and provide you with all the information about what not to miss and leave you to wander the length of the main street at your own pace and seek out the many hidden treasures. A Big Aroha staff member will transfer you down to the ferry terminal after your magical day on Waiheke.

Our day tour was customised for my friends and myself, indulging in Pizza at the beach, enjoying the wine and not feeling rushed..all wrapped up with ice creams as laughed the day away.. Jane and Darren both share so much knowledge and Aroha for the island.. I’m suggesting you guys to all my family ans friends! Thank you.

Fallen in love with Waiheke
Our small group of 5 ladies had the best wine tour experience with Jane. She took us to places for lunch and some extra olive oil tastings which were beautiful. Janes local knowledge was invaluable and by the end of the day it felt like she was one of the girls. Highly recommend this relaxed style of seeing the beauty that Waiheke Island has to offer.

Birthday weekend
Darren and Jane are great. Jane picked us up from the ferry when we arrived and then took us back there when we were to leave. Comfortable vans for traveling. Darren then took us on a tour of the island. We didn't want to do the touristy thing so he gave us a tour from a residents point of view. There was 5 of us in our party. Great tour guide, friendly people who have lived on the island for over 15 years....Jane even longer, reasonable prices....what more could u ask for..

Fantastic company and very helpful
Darren and his team were fantastic, they shuttled us all around the island from the minute we got to the ferry to the end. Every time we rang them to pick us up they were there. Great laughs with Darren when he was driving us and his work mate with the pink hat. Really recommend using them even if it’s just to get shuttled around and you don’t do one of the tours. I will definitely be ringing them when I go back to Waiheke.
