Waiheke Island with Waivino – We Love This Island!
Waivino Tours is a small locally owned passionate company. “Wai” is water and “Vino” needs no introduction. We greet you at the water and take you to the wine. Explore all that this incredible island has to offer! – Personalised unique experiences in awesome natural beauty, great gourmet food options and much more. Our guides live on Waiheke and connect you with the magic through stories as your day unfolds beautifully. We aim to bring you the best small group personalised tours on Waiheke!
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 maximising the island’s potential in a respectful and harmonious way 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’s Waiheke Wine 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 three 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 8 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 saw 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 and gourmet food on our creative version of a Waiheke tour with an abundance of taste and beauty. On our experiences, we do our best to get you out to the eastern half of the island, away from the giant tour buses, deep into the authentic heart of this vibrant living island. We get you up high to some panoramic views of paradise. At the end of the tour, we may drop into a Waiheke Brewery for a cleansing ale or get you to the famous Gelato shop in the village. A Waivino Tour is a truly satisfying, connecting experience 🙂
