Waiheke is a state of mind.
Our director Grant either travelled around the world or worked with people from all around the world in tourism and education for quite a few years. “Settle down” was not in his vocabulary but six years ago he moved to Waiheke and he hasn’t managed to leave. Two years ago he started Waivino Tours and he is now in his element on a deep level. He loves nothing more than to facilitate lovely experiences for visitors to Waiheke Island creating interesting and unique Waiheke Tours and see the joy that this natural paradise tends to produce in those who take the time to see it in an authentic light. He has taken Waiheke tours on a new path, essentially providing a more personalised experience and trying to get guests out to the eastern side of Waiheke Island as much as possible.
All of our guides have studied the subtleties of the art of wine under the world-renowned Master of Wine, Bob Campell. Needless to say, the learning process is ongoing and we are keen to hear your stories too. We hope you go away with some lovely stories from your Waiheke tour with Waivino.
We offer a culmination of two decades of high quality tourism experience both on Waiheke Island and throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. We have established great relationships with a fantastic range of award-winning wineries and olive groves. We would be honoured to be part of your Waiheke experience. Come on a Waiheke Tour with us.
