This was a very interesting journey into the world of cocktail making in Wellington. Anna and I really enjoyed meeting with some of the people behind the cocktails here and also getting an insight into the deep thought and 'philosophy' behind the various approaches to creating these drinks (which also tasted great!). Each of the four places we visited had their own unique approach to making cocktails which were great to hear about. Our guide Jon was great company and indeed has as rich and varied a background as the cocktails we enjoyed, thus adding to the enjoyment of our trip. I would like to wholeheartedly recommend this tour as in addition to being a lot of fun, it also provides a unique chance to peer behind the veil of cocktail making in Wellington!

This was a truly super experience. Jon Salter took us to places you would NEVER find on your own. Highly recommend this walking tour. Coming back for the Cocktail Tour ..... sounds awesome to us!!!

What I really enjoyed about the tour was the myths and interconnectedness with everything, Which was a very special experience for me.

A highlights tour —too short—which was augmented by a Q&A session with the guide. Came away with much more understanding of the Māori

Fantastic tour, never knew these places existed - highly recommended
