RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Discover the beauty of Waiheke Island by air, land and sea. Your adventure begins in Auckland with a scenic ferry ride to the island before embarking on a spectacular scenic flight. Be dazzled by breathtaking bird's eye views and spend the rest of the day exploring the local treasures by bus.
Your full day adventure begins at Auckland Ferry Terminal where you will board the Fullers 360 vessel across to Waiheke Island, taking in all the local scenery and surrounding islands. At the Matiatia Ferry Terminal, you will board the Explorer bus where you can enjoy as many stops as you like prior to stop 9 (Batch Vineyard and Waiheke Aerodrome). A friendly staff member will meet you at the airport for your upcoming scenic flight.
This exciting 30-minute flight will delight you with bird's eye views of some of the island's most popular locations. Heading out over the majestic beach and quaint town of Oneroa, you will see views of New Zealand’s youngest volcano – Rangitoto – with the Auckland CBD in the background. Flying from the southern side of the island around to the eastern side, enjoy views of oyster beds and mussel farms that cater to the local produce. These delicacies can be enjoyed at many restaurants on the island. The flight also offers beautiful vistas of Ponui, Pakatoa and Rotoroa Island which is one of the Hauraki Gulf's dedicated conservation sanctuaries. The last views on your decent will be of Man O’ War Bay vineyard.
After your flight, it is a short walk (approximately 3-4 minutes) back to bus stop 9 to jump back onto one of the Explorer buses opposite Batch Winery. From here you can take full advantage of the 15 convenient bus stops at some of the most popular locations on the island. The rest of the day is up to you, hop on and off as much as you desire, exploring the many attractions throughout the island. Alternatively, stay onboard and do the full 90-minute circuit of the island and then decide on your favourite spot. At a time of your choosing, board the ferry back to Auckland City.
Some of the locations you can reach include: Oneroa, Onetangi, Ostend, Rangihoua Estate, Ecozip, Waiheke Artworks Complex and Waiheke Museum. Some of the many vineyards include: Batch, Obsidian, Te Motu, Tantalus Estate, Stonyridge and Kennedy Point.
