    This tour operator was kind enough to verify that the wine tour would not get us back in time to get on board ! We did the city tour and harbor cruise . City tour pretty boring ...harbor cruise ok but so rough we were unable to do regular itinerary.

    The city tour was excellant, great commentary. The Waiheke Island wine tour was questionable, the bus air did not work, the driver had the door open for cooling, not very efficient. One of the vinards had a tour which was very good but for people that have trouble walking it was not good. Steep steps and no hand rails. The bus drive left something to be desired also.
