Overview

Experience the sights and tastes of Wellington on one of our hosted walking gourmet food tours. Here at Zest we believe the best way to experience Wellington and its culture is by strolling and sampling some of the many tasting pleasures on offer. Your friendly, local Zest guide will stroll with you through our "foodie" capital city, sampling Wellington's famous locally roasted coffee and other gastronomic delights, while regaling you with stories about the city's history, art, architecture and local characters. Meet some of our city's amazing and passionate producers and discover new flavours throughout our beautifully crafted and compact harbour city. Zest Food Tours also offers a premium food and wine experience for two to four guests in the renowned Martinborough boutique pinot noir wine region.
