This tour booked as part of my cruise activity traveling on the Golden Princess, was a highlight of the trip.
The day spent with Kathrin was a treat. She was mindful of our comfort and very knowledgeable and proud of her city. She took us to some very impressive places. I highly recommend this tour.

Last year, my family had the loveliest experience with Susanna on a Taste of Plenty foodie tour when our cruise ship docked in Tauranga for a day. This year, when I had the opportunity to return to New Zealand with a friend, I contacted Susanna for a customized 3-day tour of Auckland, Tauranga and the Coromandel area. Susanna is just the nicest person and very knowledgeable about the area. I cannot recommend her enough! We enjoyed ourselves and all of the new food experiences (especially, the fresh seafood, wagyu which was significantly cheaper than in the States, and all the dairy which definitely tastes better).

We were on a Celebrity Cruise and booked in a day tour with the cruise excursion. We had Susanna and her passion for food and cooking made me want to get in the kitchen and try different things.
The only downside was when we stopped at the cheese shop it was quick and we got 3 samples then pushed out. We would have loved to have been able to buy a sample plate to eat on the bus. Alot of us were upset about that and the shop owner lost some sales.
