Wellington Capital Tastes Walking Tour

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.

    Zest Food Tours are part of the sustainable artisan and tourism story of Wellington. We take you behind the scenes of local food businesses beloved to Wellingtonians, to see and hear how the magic happens. From local coffee and chocolate to peanut butter, NZ native honey, a regional tasting platter and more, this tour is all about the tastes of the city. Along the way we weave the Wellington stories of our history, art, culture, architecture and what makes us tick.
    As part of the sustainable story we pay all our tour partners for their time and products, and pay above the living wage. We also support food-related charities (Kaibosh Food Rescue and Eat My Lunch providing lunches to children in schools), so you are helping contribute to the sustainability of the region by touring with us.
