Itinerary

Starting in the central city, travel over the iconic Auckland Harbour Bridge, enjoying views of the harbour and city skyline. Visit the Viaduct Harbour and bustling Queen Street, and explore the Auckland Domain, the city's oldest park.

Continue through charming Parnell Village, where historic buildings have been transformed into a chic shopping area with a range of boutiques, craft and specialty stores. You'll pause for a short morning tea stop here (own expense), then travel along the waterfront to Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park, above Mission Bay. Named after one of New Zealand's most revered Prime Ministers, the park offers spectacular views of Eastern Bays, Auckland City and the Hauraki Gulf.

Following your morning city tour, enjoy a 40-minute ferry ride across the Waitemata Harbour to Waiheke Island, a haven of beaches, eateries and boutique vineyards. Upon arrival you'll be picked up by luxury coach and whisked away on a guided tour of three of Waiheke's premier wineries – Mudbrick Estate, Cable Bay and Te Motu.

Enjoy the romantic surrounds of olive groves and rustic herb gardens as you taste the wine varieties on offer at award-winning Mudbrick Estate. Take in the views across the Hauraki Gulf back to Auckland from Cable Bay as you sample their fine wines, accompanied by a delicious snack platter. Te Motu Vineyard is the last stop on your Waiheke wine tour - specialists in Bordeaux-style wines, overlooking beautiful Onetangi Beach.

The tour concludes at Waiheke's Matiatia Wharf for a picturesque afternoon cruise back to Auckland city arriving at 5:30pm.
