Glenn made our Island Magic tour amazing. He is a kind-hearted and warm person, very knowledgeable about the Island and its culture, especially as it relates to wine, history and art. We were fortunate to book a Saturday tour for 6 with him. Waiheke is a very special island - beautiful, magical, vast countryside, lush green, sandy beaches, and extensive vineyards with great wineries - what more could anyone ask for? We visited three vineyards and the olive oil tasting (which was outstanding). The ferry ride from Auckland was enjoyable and Glenn's transport service was impeccable. Don't forget to see the night sky when on the Island. It was simply amazing to see the Milky Way and all the stars. I wish there were more places on this earth like Weiheke Island and more great people like Glenn to show us their beauty and wonder. Thanks Glenn. Can't wait to show you our "wine country" here in Southern California and Baja, Mexico. Come visit us - you are more than welcome!read more
