A food tour by car, an excellent approach to see more of the area and experience a broad selection of food. Elle has a great breadth of knowledge of the cuisine and local happenings, she was a delight. Starting at the Fish Market we went out of Auckland to the Takapuna area for morning tea and pastries. We made a non-food stop at the Pump house, the lake was that was the source of water for many years for the city, now a beautiful small theater. We were then off to Sabatos, a local excellent store for spice, oil, vinegar, cheese and other local and imported food ingredients. We were treated to mushrooms, oil and vinegar testings and local cheese also bought a lot of stuff!. We ended up at the fish market with a complete explanation of the receipt and auctioning of the fish that come though the market. We finished at a small Restaurant in the Fish Market with samplings of local seafood and local beer. This is a great tour to get a look at the wholesale and retail end of the food chain.
It is food! What is there not to love? And our guide Elle, was very knowledgeable and easy to speak with. This was in Auckland and we also went to Wellington, Christchurch, and Queenstown. Elle gave us excellent recommendations on where to eat in every city! For my wife and I, it was all about the cheeses...so good!
Top top day! We loved every minute of it. Elle was so knowledgeable, kind and courteous. She was so accommodating and every part was just a true delight. I would do it again in a flash! Just brilliant and to foodies like us was right up our street.
great great great
My guide Colleen was absolutely gorgeous!! It was one of the best Foody tours I've ever been on! She met me in a very convenient location and after tasting some beautiful coffee at a local grinder, we walked down through to the city, stopping at great little foody spots along the way, ending up at the fish markets with a cool 'behind the scenes' tour and a delicious seafood lunch. Her knowledge of her city and its history was excellent and she was so much fun to hang out with. I really appreciate everything - I recommend this tour to anyone who has a free day in Auckland and enjoys food!! Cheers!!
The whole family really loved this tour! Ellie was a delightful guide and every stop was interesting, informative, and with something delicious, culminating in a wonderful lunch.
This tour was amazing!
Fabulous tour! Our guide was very engaging and knowledgeable about both the food and the Auckland area. She even suggested other restaurants we should try on our trip and they have all been top notch! This tour is a must for first time visitors to Auckland and people who love food.
Great tour with some nice food to taste. Elle was friendly and informative. A good few hours spent in Auckland tasting some great produce.
