Taste Wellington

A unique gourmet travel experience. Discerning travellers rarely have the chance to be welcomed into a local home for fellowship and home-made food treats, so in addition to the Walking Gourmet delights we take you into the home of a local culinary personality for home hospitality. This nearly full day tour includes all the classic Zest activities of tasting local specialities and meeting top food people. It may include driving through some of the city's interesting suburbs to see typical houses. A very special day, to leave you with a genuine behind the scenes sense of Wellington and its people.
