Our guide Ruth was fantastic! Wonderful venues, great wine! Loved the cheese board for entre but our mains were a little average. But we didn’t mind because we had a wonderful sunset to watch whilst eating dinner and everything else was exceptional! Loved the wines! Wish we could have bought a bottle to take home at Stonyridge. However there were wines available at the batch to buy and take home. Would definitely recommend to a friend and would come with them! :)

The wine and food were delicious. The views were divine. Our driver Philippe put the experience over the top with his friendly nature, knowledge of the island, and sense of humor. I'd recommend this tour highly to anyone traveling to Auckland.

Easy to get the ticket, well organised due to COVID requirements Present journey
