Ground Food Tours - off the eaten track!


Do you like to travel on your stomach? Tired of feeling like a tourist and want to get to know the real local flavour of Christchurch and Banks Peninsula?

We will take you off the “eaten track” to meet local food producers and business owners who are passionate about what they do. You will meet our foodie friends, family and colleagues and sample many delicious local delicacies along the way. Experience some native New Zealand ingredients, foraged foods and Maori food culture in our different tours as well as eating some of the finest garden-to-plate dishes in town.

Travel in comfort with our knowledgeable guide and get to see the city sights off the tourist trail. Our tours are highly personalized for a maximum of 7 people, or let us help you design your own tour for a group of friends or colleagues!
