Premium foodie and fashion tours
Auckland based Fine Art Tours NZ has developed bespoke shopping and foodie tour experiences featuring celebrity chefs and fashion brands in addition to its established tours.
“Mt Eden, Artisan Village is a private, bespoke ‘shop and dine’ experience in one of the most interesting foodie areas in New Zealand. Well know foodies and chefs we work with include Nici Wickes and Grant Allen, food stylist for Peter Gordon,” says Director Jacqui Wilkinson.
“We also have a well-respected French wine importer who runs a ‘New world versus old world’ wine tasting for us in his beautiful cellar located in Newmarket, Auckland.
“We’ve found that many international visitors from Europe and China find New Zealand wine very difficult to interpret, and this experience really helps them start to appreciate what is on offer here.”
Jacqui says Ponsonby, Made in NZ is a private, premium shopping tour in the coolest shopping district in New Zealand, incorporating Kiwi fashion brands such as Trelise Cooper, World and Workshop.
The new foodie and fashion tours complement the range of tours already on offer, incorporating art, heritage and gardens.
“We’re very focused on discerning, creatively minded travellers who seek more than scenery, thrills and spills. Our key markets are the US, Australia, UK and Europe, and increasingly China and Singapore with new interest from India and South America,” says Jacqui.
