What you need to know

Journey over to Waiheke Island from Auckland with a scenic ferry across to the island before climbing aboard this double decker bus to explore the best sites and attractions on the popular Waiheke Island in New Zealand's North Island. Taking you to all of the island's best spots with comfort and ease, you'll be able to conveniently explore the island without the hassle of trying to navigate yourself.

Stopping at 15 different locations around the island, including popular vineyards, beaches and restaurants, you can hop on and hop off the bus as many times as you like for the duration of your visit.

From the top and bottom seating areas, you'll be treated to awesome views as you drive around listening to the informative commentary of the island from your experienced bus driver.

Some of the assigned stops including Oneroa Village, Onetangi Beach, Batch Winery, Tantalus Winery and Brewery, Mudbrick Vineyard and Cable Bay Vineyard to name a few.
