Our flagship tour!
The Tastebud Tour is perfect for exploring the secrets of Auckland city and the suburbs.
The Tastebud Tour has been our flagship tour since we started in 2010. Over the years, our guests have experienced the sights and sounds - and most of all the flavours - of the city, through this four hour urban food safari.
The Tastebud Tour introduces you to Auckland through your tastebuds, hearing the stories of its food communities - from coffee roasters to chefs, growers to bakers to wine makers and more, all with the inside knowledge of our tour guides.
Along the way we will show you some of the city highlights (including the waterfront and the volcanoes) and explain their relevance to the New Zealand culinary story.
At the weekend we explore the city farmers markets, meeting creative artisans. We hear their stories, what drives them to be at the markets rain, hail or shine (many have day jobs and sell their passion-driven products in the weekends) And of course, there will be endless tastings!
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 the flavours that drive the city - and guarantee you will not go away hungry!
The tour is run Thursday - Sunday and other days by arrangement.
