Waiheke Tours with Waivino – We Love Waiheke Pure & Simple!
With Waivino Waiheke Tours discover all that this incredible island of Waiheke has to offer! – personalised wine tours, scenic tours with amazing views, great gourmet food options and much more. Our guides live on Waiheke and connect you with the magic through fabulous stories as your day unfolds beautifully. We aim to bring you the best small group personalised tours on Waiheke Island.
All of our guides have studied the subtleties of the art of wine under the world-renowned Master of Wine, Bob Campbell.
Needless to say, the learning process is ongoing and we are keen to hear your stories too. The winemakers and winery staff also go off on their own tangents to take you even further down the rabbit hole. Waiheke is pure nature with a lot of super talented people making the most of it and you get to sample the results and become part of it. Over the years a lot of friendships and relationships have built up between Waihekeans and people from the wine producing regions of Europe. On Waivino’d Waiheke Tours you will meet a lot of French and Spanish speaking people among a whole range of interesting people who now make up the fabric of Waiheke’s eclectic community.
We draw from two decades of high quality tourism experience both on Waiheke Island and throughout Aotearoa New Zealand and we have established great relationships with a fantastic range of award-winning wineries and olive groves on Waiheke. Our director Grant started his tourism journey in Wanaka NZ in the 90’s as a Japanese speaking guide on exclusive adventure tours. He has travelled the world and now it is time to showcase the island he has called home for the last 6 years. We should warn you that Waiheke is addictive and if you are not careful you will wake up here with a torn plane ticket in your hand as you have seen the light and decided to stay..
We look forward to guiding you around this beautiful slice of paradise and sharing our passion for Waiheke Island, Waiheke wines on our sometimes quirkier version of a Waiheke tour focused on taste, beauty and tranquility. On our Waiheke Tours we do our best to get you away to the east past the giant tour buses out to the real heart of this vibrant living island. We love to visit Passage Rock at Te Makutu Bay which is also the home of the famous oyster farm of the same name. We get you up high on Trig Hill to see the 360 degree panoramic view. We may drop into a Waiheke Brewery for a cleansing ale or get you to the famous Gelato shop in the village. A Waiheke Tour with Waivino is a truly satisfying, connecting experience which is why we are getting guests coming back again for a fresh tour at different Waiheke wineries.
