    We booked this as my husband loves his craft beer but after 3 weeks in New Zealand and a week in Auckland he was worried that it would be a waste of time as he had hardly tasted a decent beer in NZ. How wrong was he! This tour is so much more that just a beer tour, before we had even tasted a beer we had had a historical tour of parts of Auckland, had visited an ice cream shop that is amazing and had had good restaurants pointed out to us. We visited 4 different bars and samples a mixture of beers and lovely nibbles. Even for a non beer drinker like me it was worthwhile as I managed a glass of wine and some ciders and even found a beer that I Liked. The afternoon just flew by and we were so reluctant to say goodbye to Mimi, our fantastic host. After leaving her we met with other friends and revisited 2 of the bars and got the general comment " we wish we had found these places a week ago". We were not able to do the trip at the start of our visit, but if you are make sure you do as it will save you time trying to find the best places as they are hard to find. We would recommend this trip to all our friends. Thank so so much Mimi
