The Big Foody team has spent the last 6 years seeking out the very best delights of Auckland’s eateries and food establishments to bring to you in a fun filled taste extravaganza leaving you confident of where best to eat in the city.

As a bunch of super keen foodies we love showing off our city and the great places we have on offer to enjoy.

The Taste Auckland Tour is a morning of fun filled visits to local restaurants, markets, delis and other epicurean locations, tasting the produce, meeting the owners and experiencing first hand the delights of Auckland’s cuisine and culture.

Zest Food Tours: Martinborough Food and Wine Producers Tour – New Zealand

Our luxury Martinborough food and wine tour is for two to four guests only, for a relaxed and personal experience. This gourmet tour takes us by car with your Zest driver/guide around the small towns of the south Wairarapa: exploring the pretty historical township of Greytown and the celebrated Martinborough wine village. Our focus is both fine food and wine, as we savour tastes of both from specialty producers. We’ll go where few visitors can, up close, meeting innovative people dedicated to being the very best they can be with their premium boutique brands. In a beautiful pastoral setting, big skies and open spaces give way to small, attractive Victorian townships with their own charm. Naturally, our delicious three course tasting lunch is matched with premium Martinborough wines, possibly from the very vines we can see from the table.
