Everything met my expectations perfectly. The tour guide was very friendly and informative and the experience was the highlight to my trip. I really like the small group number of only 4 participants. It made the experience more personal. The tour guide was very accommodating to my vegetarian diet which was awesome.

Really great to see the fantastic food culture of Wellington. It's been amazing to find out about all those small or somewhat bigger food shops. Loved it. The tour and explanation about the food culture was very nice.

Well worth the price and great value for money. Our guide was very knowledgeable, upbeat and a great person to show us the great foods on offer around central Wellington. I would certainly recommend this tour to those who enjoy food!

My wife and I were in on a cruise ship and decided to do this tour. It was a great mix of history, walking and eating. We ended with the 3 course lunch meal and it was delicious.
