A Recent Review of this tour

Mimi provided a fantastic 'foodie' tour of Auckland with not only tasty bites but also great insights to the craft cocktail and food scene in this very walkable city. This is a great introductory tour for anyone who will be staying in Auckland for a few nights as there will be so many great choices to pick from for dining once you've spent the day with Mimi!
