A unique gourmet travel experience of tasting local specialties and meeting top food people and finishing with afternoon tea hosted at the home of a local foodie.
Start the day with a relaxed walking gourmet tour around Wellington's best food places, where your personal guide will introduce you to new and favourite flavours. Tour content can vary seasonally, and you may visit a boutique coffee roaster and stylish cafe, renowned specialist fresh produce and gourmet food stores, and a unique contemporary chocolatier.
This tour includes a delicious, light, two course tasting lunch with matched New Zealand wines, at a top Wellington restaurant.
During the day, your guide can also introduce you to many other aspects of the Capital, ranging from iconic city architecture, sculptures and fantastic places to shop and eat.

'If you are the kind of person always thinking about what and where your next meal will be, and love geeking out over artisanal chocolate or coffee, this tour is for you. We are now ready to return to Wellington with the sole purpose of eating. I strongly recommend this to anyone who loves good food and ingredients'
