This gourmet food tour was the highlight of our visit to Auckland. Joanna was delightful and very knowledgeable of the beautiful bohemian Ponsonby area and the wonderful food stops along the way. If you are a foodie, this tour is a must do.

We had an amazing time on our recent tour. Everything came together - lovely food, perfect weather and Kerry's attention to detail. Being locals, we were delighted to find new cafes and eateries that we did not know exisited. Lots of goodies to taste, I wished I hadn't eaten breakfast before the tour. Thanks Kerry, it was a great way to spend a morning.

We had a lovely time on this tour. Fabulous ice cream sampling and the grill cheese sandwich at Kapati Cheese was to die for. Fabulous to end at the Fish Market. Lovely private room with a platter to sample. Wine was very good. Lots to see there so you really did want to spend longer there.

“A lovely way to see Auckland bars, restaurants and markets.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

The one thing I love about New Zealand tours is they DON'T cancel tours if there are very small numbers. Least from all my experiences. So absolute respect their and its what happened with my tour.

So the Zest tours takes you around Auckland CBD on foot showing you cafes, pubs, fine dining, markets, etc. You stop and sample coffee, market produce, seafood, etc.

The person I had guiding (Kerry) new her food down pat, was lovely, very informative, and obviously had good relationship with all the vendors.

The food, drink, etc i got to sample was exceptionally. Could have done with a slight more sampling, particularly in the market area, but was still happy.

So good way to see Auckland and recommend. Chocolate fans best not bring their credit cards.

Great way to spend the morning discovering the best of Auckland's foodie attractions, Kerry took us to new places for coffee and pastries, cheese and ice cream, chocolates and seafood. Auckland has become a food destination and thanks to Kerry we got to see some of the highlights and learn some more about the history of the area.
