The tour guides meet the ferries and walk people to the buses. The commentary is excellent and the scenery fantastic. The only downside for me as a non alcohol drinker is most of the stops were wineries. This is probably because of the amount of wineries on the island. I was wondering if a bit more historic reference could be put in as well.

Great option to visit the island from downtown Auckland. The Hop on Hop off bus comfortable and go to beautiful towns and vineyards on the island. The place reminds us a lot like Catalina Island in California. Waiheke Island is a must visit for anyone who are visiting Auckland. The ferry provides a wonderful safe ride to and from the island. Very convenient operating throughout the day.
