Had a very interesting and tasty food and wine tour of Auckland with Louise. The restaurants we visited were exceptional and the staff welcomed us warmly and were attentive and informative. Louise had clearly prepared well, knew the staff in the restaurants, and was an informative guide without being pushy or obtrusive. Would highly recommend this tour.
Susan took us to some fabulous restaurants where we tried some dishes we probably wouldnt have tried had we been on our own. The food was exceptional, the staff were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, and the New Zealand wines were excellent. Now we know what wines to purchase and some restaurants to frequent.
We had so much fun with MiMi walking to the various establishments on our food and wine tour! Every stop was so enjoyable as we sampled the delicious foods and New Zealand wines. We had great conversation the whole tour amongst ourselves as well as with the chefs and staff where we sampled the delicious menus. On our last stop we ended up staying for dinner sitting at the bar facing the kitchen and chatting up the staff as they prepared the food. Overall it was one of our most enjoyable tours in New Zealand and highly recommend this tour with MiMi.

Mimi's Gourmet Wine and Food Tour was ridiculously enjoyable! My husband and I really felt that we had won some
kind of lottery. Imagine sitting at 4 acclaimed Auckland restaurants, basically one on one with chefs and assistants, enjoying pairings of delectable appetizer portions of some of the most creative and eclectic dishes, along with wine tastings to match. Because the tour meets late afternoon you seem to have the full commitment of the staff. Most memorable, if I had to pick, were the mussels dripping in butter and ginger sauce, followed by he/she cocktails made by the Auckland famous bartender, Jesus. The Wine Chambers reminded us of Paris, but the delightful Martina described it was really inspired by a German restaurant. We loved it all so much, we were inspired to continue in the evening at another one of Martinas restaurants, Number 5, where we continued to delight in fabulous Auckland food heaven.
We could go on... but Mimi made it all such a wonderful continuous pleasure with her knowledge of Auckland's history and her clear connection and relationship with the restaurants on her tour. If you are in Auckland.. this is a must and will provide you with eating out ideas for the rest of your time in Auckland.
This was the best way to get to know the downtown area and food options. Wine and accompanying food were good the tour is timed so that you visit the restaurants shortly before their evening opening, so there is a chance to meet the chef or owner at the venues. Our guide was absolutely wonderful! Do it!
This is the perfect tour if you like good food, wine, learning a bit of history of Auckland and want to get the lay of the land.
Mimi our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic. Really fun. She was also very kind to help us with a restaurant recommendation for the day after the tour
