Expansion often makes you look back at where things have come from. We started in 2010 with an idea to make the wineries of Central Otago accessible for people from Dunedin via guided day tours. We expanded our purview in 2011 by adding food and beer to our range of tours.
2012 is keeping up the trend of expansion as we launch our latest fantastic tours. These new tours will be departing from Queenstown and Arrowtown and have been designed to showcase some of the hidden gems of the Lakes District region.
In the course of our changes and expansions, our core mission has remained the same: to deliver a high quality tour experience to our Tasty Tourists through access to some of the best locally produced tastes.
Our Lakes Brewery Taster is Tasty Tours first completely beer-focused tour. Let us be your sober driver as you discover the micro-breweries of the area. Exploring these unique mico-breweries has never been so much fun with tastings, snacks and a chance to chat with the brewers themselves. The tour starts at lunch time (no need to worry about the ‘drinking before lunch’ rule) and includes lunch and snacks throughout the afternoon. We’re sure this premier beer tour will become a popular attraction for people visiting the area, both this winter and beyond.
Our second new tour is the Lakes Gourmet Taster. Like its sister product, our popular Dunedin Gourmet Taster, this tour allows you to sample a range of delights from local producers and restaurants. Starting at 9am, this tour will delight your taste buds with wine, chocolate, cheese, chutney, and jams. Lunch is at Amisfield where you will be treated to their signature ‘Trust The Chef’ dining experience, including wine-matching and dessert. Perhaps you’d like to complete your foodie experience by adding a cooking class…
So that’s what is new in 2012. We’re always looking to the horizon and what is coming next, such as…now that would be telling. Rest assured, we will continue to grow our tours and locations in the coming years, but right now we are excited about our new tours in the Lakes District and look forward to enjoying your company on a tour soon.
