Taste the Antipodes

Sample the finest food and wine

There is no better way to get to know a country than through its food.
These food & wine-themed tour ideas of New Zealand and Australia include some great places to really indulge. Whether you like the culinary delights of the inner city and all the popular food trucks or prefer a back-to-basics Hangi (Traditional New Zealand Māori method of cooking food using heated rocks buried in a pit oven, called an umu) we can help you explore with your tastebuds.
Both countries are known for their globally acclaimed wines with many vineyards open to visitors for tastings and meals on a daily basis. Taking advantage of the views and idyllic setting Waiheke Island (Auckland) showcases some of the most famous olive groves and wineries in New Zealand.
If food and wine are your things then let your travel specialist know and take the risk away from you getting the perfect meal!
