Our Story – How it all started!

At Waiheke Pick-me-up tours and transfers we believe everyone needs a Pick-me-up! Whether it’s friends visiting the island, a couple spending some quality time together, parents having a breather away from it all or a group of colleagues having fun and focusing away from the office. 

We started out in late 2020, created and managed by Heidi de Vries, who had been working in the travel industry for over 17 years, her last role with Air New Zealand as a Corporate account manager. Once Covid hit, and the whole world changed, it was time to pivot and consider a change of lifestyle.

Being a Waiheke Island local for almost 10 years, Heidi decided to share her passion and fondness of the island with visitors. Why spend your time commuting off the island when we can share the amazing island experience with others.

With the thought that this situation is a redirection and not a rejection , Heidi set out to get the company off the ground and find a positive way through unknown territory. 

We offer tours which include wine tastings around the island in a group or private setting , as well as Corporate offsite events. 

With over 26 world-class wineries on the island, amazing views, fascinating facts, plenty of Instagram worthy opportunities and our fun local guides – there is something for everyone. 

Waiheke Pick-Me-Up makes it easy and does all the planning for you – just turn up and enjoy and they will take care of the rest. 

We are all in this together, we appreciate life and our beautiful surroundings and wish to share it with everyone. 
So, come and join us on our beautiful island.
 

Because Everyone needs a Pick-Me-Up !
