BEST WISHES FROM THE ZEST FOODIE TEAM!
We would love to share Wellington's ethical, artisan and high quality foodie scene with you.
If you fancy a fun lightly competitive tour with mates, colleagues or travelling companions while learning about Wellington's foodie and cultural scene, then the 3.5-hour Foodie Quiz Tour might be for you. This tour requires a minimum of 4 people to run, and can be split across a number of guides and teams for bigger groups.
If you like side-street shopping and art peppered with iconic tastes, then our 3.5-hour Shopping, Art and Tastes tour might be just the ticket. This tour includes a home-hosted afternoon tea at a local foodie's house, so is designed for smaller groups of 4 to 8 people.
If you prefer a non-competitive style of touring where you eat, drink and learn about the city from your passionate knowledgeable local guide, then the 3.5-hour Capital Tastes is a tasty introduction to our gorgeous city. This tour operates with a minimum of 2 people.
If you'd like to delve a little deeper with your guide, then the 5-hour Walking Gourmet tour adds a wine or craft-beer matched lunch at a top local eatery, where you can really get under the hood of what makes Wellington tick. This tour also operates with a minimum of 2 people.
For the discerning traveller seeking an immersive gourmet experience, the private 6-hour Taste Wellington tour for 2-4 people is available on request. This includes the Walking Gourmet experiences, plus an intimate home-hosted afternoon tea experience with a local foodie.
We also offer bespoke private full-day tours to the Martinborough wine region for 2-4 people on request.
We recommend you book early in your visit to Wellington or the Wairarapa, so we can give you great ideas on what else to see and do while you are here.
