“Sydney Inner West Gourmet Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

My husband and I went on this tour on a Saturday and really enjoyed it. We had never done anything like this before and now we are wondering why! The tour guide and transport were good, the group size small, and the providores were generous with their time and products. I would highly recommend it.

Thank you for your review. We love showing Sydneysiders parts of their city. As tour guides we also feel a bit spoilt when we constantly have to eat great food and be paid for it We hope we can welcome you onboard any of our other tours sometime in the future.

Despite the rainy day it was an excellent and totally unexpected tour. Nice places, wonderful people and amazing food. You also have the opportunity to purchase stuff along the way at every provider. Highly recommended.

“Food Glorious Food - Gourmet Inner West Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Fantastic gourmet food & beverage themed exploration of some hidden gems in Inner West Sydney. I went on this tour because I love exploring Sydney, my local city, not so much because I'm a foodie. I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the tour. It was enough to convert me to a seeker of all things gourmand, after all sampling fine produce is not an unpleasant pass time. The guide & business owners were friendly, entertaining and informative and travel was in a very comfortable Mercedes Benz Tour van. Along the way were stops to learn about coffee blending & roasting, fine quality meat, herbs & spices, Italian Continental delicatessan goods, hand made chocolates & wine. Noone will finish this tour hungry with plenty of Italian meats, cheeses, olives & oil, breads, gourmet sausage, steak & some coffee, wine & a little chocolate to sample along the route. All five or six stops were great but my favourites were Peter Raineri's Italian Five Dock Deli (probably the highlight), the Coffee Roaster at Alexandria & Establishment 218 the meat emporium also at Alexandria. These are places you would return to to shop and to think I've driven past Peter's Deli for years & never been aware of it. An Informative, tasty & fun outing.

We went on this tour on a Saturday morning. What a great day. it took us to wonderfull providors of fine food, Explaining the food and having oportunities to try at all the places we visited. Needless to say purchases were made along the way to enjoy at home later. We learnt about coffee, meat, spices, deli items, chocolate and wine. What a great combination. Would definately do the other tour they offer to see the other providors in the area. And will definately go back to the places we visited on the tour tro shop further... Enjoy....

This trip was great and despite the Saturday morning traffic, we ran pretty much to time and the retailers were ready for us on arrival. We were taken to great outlets, some you would use regularly (Meat Emporium and Peter's Deli). We learnt about blending and roasting coffee (then drank good coffee!). At the Meat Emporium we tasted meat with different sauces then bought the products (eskis were supplied). On to herbs (how many herbs and spices are there?!). Then to my favourite, Peter's Deli where the hosts were amazing and extraordinarily generous (no need to buy lunch!). The tour ended with chocolate and wine! Helen and Rohan were great guides, going the extra mile to assist those who, unfortunately, had to leave early. Nothing was too much trouble. All in all, a fabulous day and I'm looking forward to doing another tour with them. BTW, there was absolutely no pressure to buy at any of these outlets, so don't feel obliged to do so. On being asked "what sort of visit was this?" it could be for Couples/Friends/Solo.
