Peter and Mai both the owners of the company took a small group of us on a tour to Matakana "I can call it the Matakana special" such an hidden gem and definitely worth your visit. We went on the Saturday which means our first stop was The infamous Matakana Farmers Markets

Kia Ora Rick, First of all, I want to thank you for joining our trip to Matakana. It was amazing to meet a hospitality professional who is passionate & eager to learn. Matakana is a beautiful town full of unique destinations. The Village Farmers Market located on the banks of the river is by far the best market in Auckland featuring local organic producers with an emphasis on the environment. No plastics allowed (everything has to be recyclable) With live music playing and a fireplace to stay warm, the market gives you the perfect cozy feeling. Chocolate Tasting at Honest is a lovely experience, chocolate lovers call that place heaven! The Vintry is a very special wine bar. If you wish to taste local wines and learn about different boutique wineries that don't even have a cellar door.. this is the place to go. Sculpterium is a place for everyone, young or old, artist or any other person.. art that suits every person. Sawmill Brewery offers a wide variety of unique craft beer... Their newest addition is the Nitrogen Chocolate Beer! The hot chocolate drink at Chocolate Brown was a lovely add-on after the chocolate tasting. I'm happy you enjoyed your personalized souvenir, now you have something that will always remind you of the amazing day we spent together! Thanks again & looking forward to have you on more of our trips.

The tour is great; interesting, varied things to do. The company is top-notch to work with. I was going to Auckland for work; as a solo traveler in the off season, I was having difficulty finding anything touristy to do. I took a long weekend, as this was my first time to NZ.
