After a 40 minute ferry from Auckland to Waiheke Island, we met our tour guide for an incredible wine tour around the island. Waiheke Island has 30 wineries and we sampled 3 of the most beautiful; Mudbrick, Cable Bay, and Te Whau.
Following the wine tour, we hiked up the hill from the ferry to our accommodations. Our studio apartment had a ridiculous view of the harbour below. That evening, we walked about 25 minutes into town and checked out some great bars and restaurants.
