Elle is a really sweet soul. She picked us up very promptly and took us on a grand tour of Auckland and it's suburbs. We were treated to a gorgeous view of the city from the top of Mount Eden. From there, she took us through funky shopping areas where we stopped at a cookbook store and met the owners who grow many of their herbs and veggies and then taught cooking classes. They were just lovely people. Elle took us to an Indian spice market and a specialty food store that specializes in locally produced and European imported foods. We were able to taste many of the cheeses and olive oils and jams. So fun! Then after wine tasting and a tour of the fish market, we were treated to a seafood platter. We were able to purchase many specialty food items like New Zealand honey and wine. Elle then gave us recommendations for restaurants based upon our likes. She really plans a nice half day for you. Elle is a really genuine, sweet person who is very knowledgeable and personable. I think anyone with a love for good food, good wine, and good company would love Elle and her tour. Just book it. You'll have a great time with her.
