Know More about this tour

The tour commences from Wellington iSite, Civic Square at 9.30am daily (excluding public holidays). You are requested to arrive at iSite at 9.15am to meet your guide so that we may introduce ourselves and conduct the health and safety briefing before we commence at 9.30am.

The tours go ahead in all weather, so please wear comfortable walking shoes and clothing appropriate to the day, including coat or sunscreen. We will walk approximately 90 minutes throughout the course of the tour (broken up by delicious eats and drinks!)., and although Wellington City is flat, there are some steps and ramps. Unfortunately the tour is not generally suitable for persons in wheelchairs or with walking limitations.

During the course of the tour we will sample artisan food and drinks at each stop (approx 5 stops), and in some cases peek behind the scenes to see where the magic happens. You will meet the passionate people behind the products, hear their stories, and get a great understanding of what makes Wellington tick.

The range of tastes will include locally roasted coffee, artisan cheeses, fruits, salami, chocolate, peanut butter, gelato, sodas and more. On Sundays, your itinerary will also include the lovely waterfront Harbourside food market.

All eats and drinks during the tour are included in the tour price. Please note - if you have any allergies or dietary restrictions, please provide details in the 'Special Requirements' field at the time of booking. We will do our best to make appropriate substitutions whenever possible, but require advance notification to do so.

The tour will conclude at approx 1pm near the original iSite start, and we are happy to escort you back to iSite or ensure you are directed to the next part of the city you wish to explore.

We recommend you book your tour for early in your Wellington stay, as our local knowledgeable guides will share loads of information about the best places to explore and eat and drink while you are in our lovely harbour city.

We are proud to be a sustainable business that ensures all staff are paid a living wage (not just minimum wage), all of our partners are highly ethical and sustainable in their practices, and we pay for the tastes on tour to support the sustainability of our partners' businesses. it also means we are able to choose where we take you without obligations or commercial constraints.

We also partner with a Wellington-based food rescue organisation called Kaibosh who do wonderful work in redistributing food that would otherwise go to waste.
