Welcome to Gourmet Journeys

Nau mai, haere mai ki Aotearoa

New Zealand's only dedicated food and wine tourism specialist inbound tour operator and destination management company.


We believe to truly experience the remarkable Pacific Rim influences and fusions of the foods and world renown wines of Aotearoa, our guests need to venture behind the extraordinary scenery and beyond the well worn, and in our opinion, too oft repeated tourist itinerary routes.

Join one of our custom made experiences as we explore the country’s sense of place, meet its local peoples and sample this very unique country and culture first hand.


He aha te mea nui o te ao (What is the most important thing in the world?)
He tangata, he tangata, he tangata (It is the people, it is the people, it is the people.)

- Maori proverb


Terroir is more than just soil and climate. The third factor is the people.
