New Zealand is in the throes of a culinary revolution. Globetrotting
Kiwis are returning to their homeland and turning the cookbooks of their British forebears
upside down, creating their own, innovative cuisine.
Our Experience Tours embrace this revolution. We have selected the best dining experiences in each
region, with menus that celebrate our unique, Pacific Rim culture and feature fresh, local
Lunches occur in a variety of settings, including
sumptuous picnic feasts on the beach; charming sidewalk cafes; historic Kiwi taverns; and
beautiful, sun-drenched wineries.
Dinners give us the opportunity to laugh and socialize
while enjoying some of New Zealand 's best restaurants. Each dinner features off-the-menu
dining complemented by a tasting selection of fine New Zealand wines.
We provide all meals and snacks for you on an experience
tour, with few exceptions. Those exceptions are outlined in the itineraries and occur so
you can explore a variety of excellent local restaurants on your own.
Our Adventurer Tours leave you free at lunches and dinners to celebrate your own culinary finds. Each
day you can seek to indulge your cravings, be it for fillet mignon or fish-and-chips
wrapped in newspaper!
Regardless of which tour style you choose, be
it experience tour or adventurer tour, you are greeted each morning with your choice of a
hearty cooked or continental breakfast before embarking on your day.
