I just wanted to thank you for making the food tour happen especially for us at such short notice and accommodating our tight schedule. As you predicted, we loved spending the afternoon with Jono who is passionate and knowledgeable about Auckland and has a charming engaging personality. He not only accommodated our diets but he ended our tour on a sweet high note with hokey pokeys from Giapo. This was on my husband’s ‘must go to’ list.

We've found food tours are a tasty way to learn about a city, its geography, history, and culture. This food tour of Auckland was no exception. Colleen picked us up at our hotel for our private tour. Being Saturday, we were able to experience a farmer's market where we sampled local delicacies from the countryside. What a treat. But a great food tour is about more than just food. Colleen led us through an unexpected tour of the Auckland Domain Wintergarden and Fernery. Really beautiful! A visit to Mt. Eden and a wonderful gourmet shop for a sampling of New Zealand's finest cheeses followed. Our tour was topped off with a delicious lunch at a local restaurant. We really enjoyed our tour with Colleen and heartily recommend it to others.

My adult daughter and I booked this tour and had the good fortune to be picked up at our hotel by Colleen for what wound up being a private tour! Colleen gave us such a wonderful overview of Auckland - touring, driving us and teaching and orienting us the whole time about the history and interesting facts of the city. We tasted many local foods in interesting settings, and we covered so much area to see iconic overlooks/views and markets. Although it was a food tour, she also did such a great job as an intro to New Zealand - Colleen is a charming, warm, and knowledgeable tour guide and made the tour a very fun, lovely launch into our journey.

If you want an interesting and informative introduction to Auckland on foot while sampling some yummy New Zealand treats, sign up for this tour and ask for Jen to be your guide. Over a three hour period in our first afternoon in the city we explored some interesting parts of the CBD and got suggestions for the remainder of our trip. Thanks, Jen, for a great tour.
