My mum, Jenny McDonald started Ananda Tours back in 1999 and 20 years later we are still going strong as a Waiheke family owned and operated tour company.
After years of working part-time in the family business, I joined the Ananda team full-time in 2012. With a passionate interest in the world of wine, I completed several stages in the International WSET wine courses, studied a Diploma in Wine Marketing and has even made my own wine. During my eight years in the wine industry I have worked at several Waiheke wineries, including Stonyridge, Te Whau and Mudbrick, as well as Vidal Estate in Hawkes Bay.
I now have a small family of my own here on Waiheke and I just love everything that the Island has to offer including stunning scenery, walks, food scene and of course.. amazing wine! We can't wait to share our beautiful Island with you.
