Your small-group food tour begins on Auckland’s 'eat street' at the base of Sky Tower. After a warm welcome, you'll head to a local eatery to mix and mingle with your guide over New Zealand-style cuisine. Here you may savor cumin-rubbed roast lamb or seafood fritters with aoli dipping sauce depending what's on the menu.
This leisurely experience blends Auckland’s colorful history and landmarks with an entertaining 'lunch on legs' designed to showcase the city's diverse flavors. It’s so much more than a food tour as you'll duck down back lanes and through serene squares towards the city’s waterfront. Along the way, we sit down to eat and share the stories of the local food vendors carefully selected to host us. You'll discover their fascination with crafting premium ingredients into the food Aucklanders' love.
Your local guide will bid you a friendly farewell downtown near Auckland's bustling waterfront. You'll leave full to the brim with food and local advice as Auckland is a Pacific-rim foodie paradise (if you know where to go).
"This tour is brilliant and good value as well. Everything we sampled was delicious. The restaurant choices are endless so it was fantastic to have a knowledgeable guide to point us at the hidden gems of the city. This is a unique experience and not to be missed!" Jennifer, Washington DC
