Day by Day Tour Itinerary
On arrival in New Zealand’s capital at Wellington airport you’ll be met and transferred to the QT Museum Wellington.
The QT Museum Wellington is a privately owned luxury boutique hotel opposite Te Papa and the waterfront and a short stroll to live theatres, designer shopping, city markets, Waitangi Park and Oriental Parade’s promenade and beach.
French restaurant Hippopotamus is located on the third floor with views of the stunning Wellington harbour. Other choices for dinner include The Ambeli, Floriditas, Matterhorn, or Logan Brown as they all have extensive wine lists and gorgeous food.
After a delicious breakfast, make your way to the central city for your Walking Gourmet tour. Over a relaxed four and a half hour walking gourmet tour around Wellington’s best food places, your personal guide will introduce you to new and favourite flavours.
Tour content can vary seasonally, and you may visit a boutique coffee roaster and stylish cafe, renowned specialist fresh produce and gourmet food stores, and a unique contemporary chocolatier. And during the day, your guide can also introduce you to many other aspects of the Capital, ranging from iconic city architecture, sculptures and fantastic places to shop and eat.
Today you will visit the award-winning Martinborough wine region on this all inclusive wine tour and treat your taste buds. Just over an hour from the capital, depart Wellington by rail for a scenic journey with stunning views of Wellington harbour and the Wairarapa Valley.
Visit 4 boutique Martinborough vineyards, enjoy wine tastings throughout the day, a delightful gourmet lunch at the charming wine village, sweet delights and later, relax with a delicious cheese platter and coffee. Relax and let our local driver guide you in our modern coach on this all inclusive wine tour. If time allows, browse the charming village craft shops and galleries.
Sleep in and enjoy a leisurely breakfast before being transferred to Wellington airport today in time for your flight. If you have time to spare, a visit to Te Papa, the national museum, is highly recommended.
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
You won’t pay more by booking your short break holiday with Relaxing Journeys. We have access to discounted industry rates and special deals, only available to those in the travel trade. So the amount we make on each short break, is the difference between these rates and retail rates that you would pay if you booked it all yourself. Of course, you also get peace of mind that all is organised professionally and you get our fantastic service thrown in! There will be occasions where a property may release a ‘walk in’ deal that may better our quote, however our prices are the best available at the time of booking.
Your dedicated tour consultant will email you through a quote. If it looks good, then full payment is required to confirm the booking (within 45 days) or a deposit of $100 per person is required outside this period. This must be paid by credit card (Visa or Mastercard only). We do not charge credit card fees on our short break packages. If the properties listed in the holiday package are unavailable at this time, we will provide you with alternatives until you are happy.
We welcome bookings from anywhere in the world. You can see how much each package is using our currency converter on this page. Only the New Zealand Dollar (NZ$) prices on this site are accurate. Prices in other currencies have been converted for your convenience, and are there to help you to compare to your own currency. All of our New Zealand tours are charged in New Zealand Dollars. Your credit card company will convert the amount paid from your currency into NZD automatically for you.
Some short break packages do not include (or may not require) a hire car, or internal flights. Relaxing Journeys can organise these extras for you and include them in your quote if you wish – or you can just book the short break ‘as is’, and organise everything else yourself.

Once your deposit has been paid and you have received your deposit confirmation, we will organise your short break and when completed (normally within 48 hours) we will email you confirmation. When you pay your balance (45 days before the start date) we will email you a ‘Short Break Voucher’ shortly after along with your arrival information and everything else you need. Print this off and take it with you to NZ.
