Taste Wellington

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, three course tasting lunch with matched New Zealand wines, usually at top Wellington restaurant, Logan Brown* (2009 Cuisine Magazine NZ Restaurant of the Year Winner), which is open from Tuesday to Saturday, or top waterfront restaurant Shed 5 on Sundays and Mondays.

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.

For your last stop we drive you to the home of a local foodie for afternoon tea before returning you to your central city accommodation.

Walking Time: approx 45 minutes, at a casual wandering pace.
