A Great introduction to a lovely city
Jan. 2020
If you want an interesting and informative introduction to Auckland on foot while sampling some yummy New Zealand treats, sign up for this tour and ask for Jen to be your guide. Over a three hour period in our first afternoon in the city we explored some interesting parts of the CBD and got suggestions for the remainder of our trip. Thanks, Jen, for a great tour.

Fantastic experience- food and culture!
Jan. 2020 • Couples
Jen was a fantastic tour guide! We had a wonderful experience not only with the fantastic food, but Jen gave us a remarkable immersion into the Auckland culture. We were able to see places and have experiences we never would have had on our own. And the food was fantastic, not to mention all we learned about many other places that are now on our list to visit. Highly recommend this tour to all who are visiting Auckland.

Great intro to Auckland CBD food
Jan. 2020
We had a great experience with our guide Colleen and 4 other guests. Guide was warm, welcoming and knowledgeable. Good selection of food samples and plenty to go around. Every venue was prepared for our visit when we arrived and took good care of us. If you like food tours (or have never tried one), I'd recommend this one.
Just one glitch, if you're looking for the SIM card they offer on their site, they no longer do that. Need to update the website.

Super thankful Elle was able to accommodate us even in December when most of the people are on vacation. She gave us a great tour of the city by filling our stomachs with awesome food from Auckland with some history of the place. We always start our vacation with a food tour so we get to know the area, the restaurants along with historical and cultural facts. You can also see she cares for her clients, asking for any dietary restrictions and also chose restaurants that are walkable even for senior citizens. My mother in law had a bad knee acting up the day of our tour and Elle kind enough to put her in an Uber going to a restaurant to ease her pain. It’s also a plus that Elle can get past lines in Giapo for some beautiful ice cream 🥰

A Unique experience
Nov. 2019 • Solo
Although I had to change the date/time of my tour I had a great experience. There were only two on the tour and we visited some hidden food treasures of Auckland CBD and tasted unique NZ food cooked from NZ fair trade produce. Jen the guide was very knowledgeable and as we were ahead of schedule popped in a few extra stops. If you like pastries, coffee, fried chicken, chocolate, pancakes this is the tour for you, exploring Auckland though your taste buds as well as your eyes and feet. A fabulous way to spend a morning.

So Cal meets Auckland Big Foody
Oct. 2019
Excellent way to not only get to know the Auckland food scene, but also get in some exercise. Jen our guide was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable of the places we visited. Explaining how a restaurant came to be and the owners food philosophy. The places she took us to are small out of the way eateries that you would not find easily. Great mixture of savory and sweet. We skipped dinner that evening as the food we tasted was quite adequate. Highly recommend this excursion.

A Fun and Filling Afternoon
We had a fun and filling afternoon on our Big Foody walking tour. From delicious handmade pasta to a remarkable Korean pancake from a street vendor to some of the best ice cream I’ve ever had (and much more), this taste of Auckland was varied and uniformly excellent. The experience was made ever better by our terrific guide, Colleen. I’ve been to Auckland several times, but Colleen made the most of her local, insiders knowledge to show us parts of the city that most visitors would miss. My one piece of advice - bring an appetite. You will have a great afternoon, but you definitely won’t go home hungry!

Yum!
Jan. 2019 • Couples
Elle met with our family of 7 (three siblings with spouses and our 81-year-old father) and immediately customized our tour to meet our dietary requests (no seafood) and slowed the walking pace to accommodate our dad. Every stop was delightful and delicious and Elle did an excellent job of sharing her foodie insights about Auckland with us. No one went away hungry and we all left with a great appreciation for the local food scene. Thanks Elle!

A great taste of Auckland
I had a private tour of Auckland with Elle yesterday. It was fantastic to get to try all the local tastes and get an inside into staying in Auckland. I can highly recommend the tour. We tasted chocolates, peanut butter, olive oil, seafood and amazing ice cream.
