The Award Winning Website

Congratulations to our client Waiheke Island Wine Tours who have recently been awarded the “Top Tourism Site”.

The award, which is given to leading New Zealand travel sites that enhance New Zealand as a travel destination, has delighted Jean Goodbrand & Wayne Eagleton who started the Waiheke Island vineyard tour business just over a year ago. “We were delighted to hear that our website has won the New Zealand Tourism Guide award of the week for the Top Tourism Site” said Jean.

The small island business has experienced tremendous interest since its launch, with “heaps of enquiries” and a “high number of bookings” made through their custom designed online booking system software, designed as part of their website by Sol Harris of Purple Dog, a local Waiheke Island website designer.

Recognising the tour itself, the award also specifically mentions the “professionally designed website” which it calls “stylish” and “clean”;

Waiheke Island Wine Tours offer small and highly personalised vineyard tours all year round. Visit top Waiheke Island vineyards in air-conditioned comfort and with full commentary.

Their professionally designed Web site is very stylish and features eye catching imagery to contrast well with it’s clean layout.

Purple Dog Design’s Sol Harris said “we are very happy for our client who deserves this credit as much for their hard work, as for the tourism contribution they make to Waiheke. We are also delighted to learn that our website and booking software services have been recognised as part of the award too.”
