My partner and I found ourselves in an unexpected situation, having to attend a couple of family events at short notice, neither which we had brought appropriate clothing to New Zealand for. Not being familiar with the Auckland shopping scene we approached Tour to Shop to make the process as quick and successful as possible. Fione is amazing, she knows the ins and outs of Auckland shopping including all the little ones you would never find on your own! She is so friendly, patient and professional, you will feel completely comfortable and will enjoy the experience. By the end of the tour we had found outfits for both occasions and could not have been happier with the outcome! Thanks so much Fione.

If you find yourself in Auckland with a short time frame to get some essentials for your wardrobe then look no further. Fione offers you a personal and friendly service where she discusses with you over coffee what your needs are. Her warm friendly manner made the day so pleasurable, taking me to shops that you would not normally find on the high street. Nothing was too much trouble. Fione is fun, listens and does not rush. If you ask for advice she gives an honest opinion. I highly recommend Fione for your personal shopping assistance and wish her good luck for the future.

"I am a born and bred Aucklander with a 24/7 job, and no time to shop let alone waste time. I need to do all my shopping in one foul swoop – which we did incredibly without the headaches, sore feet, parking issues, or de-hydrating. Fione knew exactly where to take us, and was literally like having a chauffeur, valet, PA, tour guide and personal stylist rolled into one! She anticipated our needs, was warm, efficient and full of surprises about shopping in a city we thought we knew! Having her host our shopping was a bit of a luxury but also made complete sense by removing the stress. Looking now to book again to cover off Spring-Summer wardrobe and Christmas shop all in one!"
"This is belated – but need to thank you for the guided shopping tour you conducted last month. I really enjoyed the day and was thrilled with my purchases. It was really a great way to cover the shops in comfort and it was completely hassle free. I have no hesitation in endorsing this service, especially for ladies unfamiliar with navigating their way around Auckland, unsure of locating what they want. I do hope that the marketing of your business is going well and getting good support."
Many thanks and regards
I had a great day shopping with my sister and a friend, being guided by Fione. It was a hassle free day going to shops we wouldn't have been able to find alone. We traveled in luxury and we all made purchases we were delighted with. The day was rounded up with a lovely lunch. I recommend it especially if you are from out of town and unfamiliar with Auckland and its traffic. Whether you are a local or a visitor, it is a fun experience to share with friends.
"You are worth every dollar – I only realised the value of what you offer once I used your fantastic tour. I never want to shop alone again!"
What a wonderful shopping tour my daughter and I had with Fione. Picked up in a beautiful luxury car and then transported around the city to personally selected stores ......Fione is delightfully relaxed and allowed us to create the pace. We shared a lovely lunch together which was included in the cost. Would happily recommend Fione and Tour To Shop if you want a fabulous personalised shopping experience when in Auckland. Thanks again Fione.
Thank you so much for a fabulous time! I have lived in Auckland for 21 years, some of my girlfriends live in different cities in NZ and it's always difficult deciding where to meet and catch up. The majority of us live in Auckland and I had heard about 'Tour to Shop' and was very intrigued about the service. Don't get me wrong, I love shopping but Auckland is so spread out I never quite know where to start. I contacted Fione and after talking to her briefly, we booked a day that my friends and I could get together.
Our day started with being picked up in absolute luxury by Fione. We knew straight away that Fione was pretty switched on and she sussed out what sort of style we liked. We headed to Ponsonby where we found some amazing boutique and designer stores that I hadn't even heard of. I love Ponsonby but parking there puts me off going, it's so frustrating. I'm never quite sure where to start and always end up walking for miles and not achieving very much! That was the great thing about Tour to Shop, we were dropped off outside the shops while Fione parked the car. We went to the most exquisite little shops. Her knowledge of the area was really wonderful and there was no time wasted looking for a park and having to walk miles. When we wanted to move on, Fione left us browsing and appeared outside with the car like magic. Bags of shopping piled into the boot and off to the next set of shops. When we started to feel peckish, Fione suggested we stop for lunch. We arrived at a beautiful cafe which Fione had already pre-booked for us. The food was delicious and we enjoyed a glass of Rose, it felt like a real treat. There was no rush, we just took our time, talking about our purchases and what else we would like to look for. Fione suggested a few more shops we might like. Each one slightly different from it's predecessor. It was such a fantastic day, we all want to do it again. I would highly recommend this service to both locals and visitors to Auckland City. Don't waste time looking for these little gems, you will never find them on your own. Call Fione at 'Tour to Shop' for a day you will talk about for a very long time.
