Discover - Around Waiheke Tours

Around Waiheke Tours Ltd is a boutique tour company owned by Graeme Ransom. Located on beautiful Waiheke Island – a ‘must do’ on your Auckland activities list – the company operates two 18 passenger buses which are unmistakeable.  We also have access to other passenger vehicles for larger or smaller numbers. Our mission is to provide affordable fun tours of Waiheke Island, one of New Zealand’s hidden secrets.

Graeme was born in Taihape in the central North Island and ‘fell’ in love with Waiheke Island in 1985 when he first visited.  With years of experience in both transport and customer service, Graeme was a chauffeur in Melbourne where he transported some of Australia’s leading businessmen. He can even lay claim to having been a Melbourne tram driver! Graeme and his drivers are very laid back and get a kick out sharing their extensive knowledge of and love for Waiheke with visitors. His strongest emphasis is on fun and enjoyment. He feels he has found the perfect job sharing his passion for Waiheke. As a small operator he can provide a professional but flexible experience.

Unlike most transport operators on Waiheke Island, Around Waiheke Tours is owned and operated by a  Waiheke based owner. We are NOT owned by a multi-national nor are we based off the island.

Afternoon Wine Tour
We operate Waiheke Island’s best value wine tour. It will be a relaxed fun afternoon tour with sampling at three of the leading vineyards on the island. The tour will also include the must see views on Waiheke.
