Overview
Zest Food Tours has been helping visitors discover fresh tastes in New Zealand’s café capital since 2003. Our friendly, local guides showcase Wellington, its history, art and eclectic architecture in ways that only locals can, in partnership with our lovely artisan providers, which are relationships developed over many years. We only take small groups (maximum 8 people) and aim to ensure all guests go away with memorable personalised experiences, and a thorough understanding of what makes Wellington tick. Because this tour includes an expertly wine or craft beer matched lunch at the conclusion, this will give you extra time with your knowledgeable guide to learn more about Wellington and New Zealand. And inside information on other great places to explore while you are in our beautiful region.

Our tour guide, Tina, really made this tour an extra enjoyable experience. Not only did we sample some great bites but she gave us an overview of some Wellington's history, its architecture and art. We went down some off the beaten paths that we would not have found on our own
