The Tastebud Tour has been the flagship tour since we started in 2010. Over the years our guests have seen the sights and sounds and most of all the flavours of the city through this four hour tour.
The Tastebud Tour introduces you to Auckland through your taste buds. We hear the stories of the food communities, from coffee roasters to chefs, growers to bakers, wine makers and of course our tour guides.
Along the way we show you some of the city highlights from the waterfront to the volcanoes and talk about the relevance they play on the New Zealand food story. The tour is run Thursday - Sunday and other days by arrangement.
At the weekend we explore the city farmers markets, meeting creative artisans. More often than not have a different day job during the week and sell their passion made delicious products at weekends. We hear their stories, what drives them to be at the markets rain, hail or shine and taste endlessly throughout!
During the week we visit a coffee roaster which holds a special place in the hearts of many coffee aficionados. Whatever the day, whatever the weather, we showcase to you the stories and flavours that drive the city and guarantee you will not go away hungry!

"We shopped, ate, learnt, chatted, laughed, took photos and left feeling like old friends. This is the best start to a visit to New Zealand." Maggie and Harris Brookes
