Was picked up at cruise ship dock with no problems.
The first stop was a farmer's market hidden away on a back street. A lot of samples of fresh fruit, pastries, vegetables, preserves, honey, etc. Ate a lot of samples. Next we went to a wholesale/retail gourmet store. Again, hidden away in an industrial area. We did tastings there of different oils, vinegars and cheeses. Then on to the Auckland fish market, which was interesting to see. We had a very good lunch of assorted seafood dishes.Great day

Elle was an amazing guide! She knew just where to take us in order for us to truly experience the different flavors of Auckland. We started in the local market where we sampled delicious quiche and croque monsieur. The brownie was amazing and the limoncello divine! We also went to the shop where chefs buy their cheeses and various ingredients. We tried and also purchased some amazing cheeses and tea! We some how also managed to grab some yummy apple syrup to bring home and hide from the kids!

Elle also took us to lunch for some Auckland local seafood. Perfect! Elle knows the ins and outs of Auckland and the best places to go if you want to experience the flavors of Auckland. She is funny and entertaining and we truly enjoyed our tour and meeting her. I highly recommend Big Foody Food Tours if you want a true taste of Auckland.
