my family and I along with our friends went on this tour and it was absolutely amazing! The tour guides are so friendly and make the day go by with lots of laughs.

As long term food and drink enthusiasts , it was great to be escorted around Wellington by someone with an equal passion and extensive knowledge of the local scene . I would particularly recommend a tour with Jon as host to... More

We actually flew to Wellington just to do this tour on the last day of our honeymoon, and we don't regret it! We visited some really cool places on our tour, including Rich Coffee Roasters, and the oldest pub in Wellington. The other places we went to, a produce market, an Italian market/restaurant, an incredible chocolate shop and a gelato... More

This tour was a real gem and covered coffee, cheese, meats, and chocolates from around the world. We went to a coffee shop where the owner roasted his own beans that were imported from the Caribbean. The cheese shop featured items from France and other countries in Europe. We were taken to a store that supplied meat, olives, and other... More

We had a really fun, relaxed day with Jon and Joe (who did the driving). We have been in Wellington a couple of years now and wanted to find some places that were off the beaten track or less well-known. Starting with a real treat of a coffee education in Brooklyn all the way to some beer-tasting in Petone at... More
