Description

Start your day off on the right foot with a guided culinary experience in Noumea—New Caledonia's bustling seaside metropolis. Venture inside charismatic marketplaces where you can interact with food-producers of numerous ocal specialities.

Fall head over heels for New Caledonia's sumptuous, French-inspired food during your visit to Port Moselle. First, wander through the Market—a gathering place nestled into the heart of the waterfront area. Beneath hexagonal buildings capped with blue-tile roofs, taste the local tropical produce like tiny bananas, juicy mangos, and milky coconuts and visit the souvenir markets overflowing with assorted crafts.

Next, step into a local supermarket brimming with delicious French foods and wines. Journey to the Latin Quarter of the city centre and visit a chocolate boutique to taste the earthy flavours of the famous chocolate creations. Conclude your experience with a trip to a traditional bakery. Marvel at the way your sample of a flaky pastry melts in your mouth before bidding your helpful guide farewell.

Not what we expected at all. We thought that we were being taken to producers of local delicacies, and shown how they were produced and tasting them. Instead we were taken to a supermarket to taste cheese, a chocolate shop, a patisserie that specialised in macaroons, and a bottle shop, where we were told about a couple of wines but not able to taste. And at each stop we were made to feel obliged to purchase. Though our guide was very personable and tried to give us a meaningful tour, well you can't make a silk purse out of a pigs ear. We're sorry, but this was not worth the money we paid.
