“Simply the BEST”
Why is this tour the best? Here’s why….Trip Advisor review from Gracie T:
Auckland is known by locals and visitors alike for unpredictable weather patterns and it was for this reason that I was nervous going into our Unique Tours experience. Yes, the skies were grey and ominous that day but that didn’t stop the flow nor change our experience for the negative. My fears were quickly laid to rest upon meeting our incredible tour guide, Mimi, at the Ferry building located on Aucklands waterfront. With an upbeat and cheerful demeanour, Mimi started off with a bang by sharing an unfathomable amount of information about Aucklands rich architecture, cultural and culinary history!
My partner and I were two of four on the tour, keeping our experience intimate and setting the perfect platform for meeting friendly strangers who also shared a passion for food and wine.
Up until this point, I had actually spent a fair amount of time in the Auckland downtown area but was still consistently shocked with the “off the beaten path” selections Mimi had hand picked. Each restaurant was immaculate and well prepared for our arrivals. Seeing as the tour is scheduled just before dinner service, we frequently had each place to ourselves, not only allowing us to converse with one another but also to speak with the various owners, executive chefs and maitre de. The wine was consistently flowing and the small plates of delight never seemed to end! All courses were gorgeous both in flavour and aesthetic!
In essence, this is a tour opportunity that those visiting Auckland CANNOT pass up. It is organised, informative, delicious and fun! I highly recommend doing Mimis tour when you first arrive (as opposed to the end of your trip) as it will help you get your bearings around the city not to mention present you with about a million options for dining out.
Thanks for an incredible tour, Mimi! I will certainly seek you out on future trips to Auckland and make sure that I recommend you and your fantastic tours to my family and friends back home in the states.
