A really informative tour with Amelia. Both my hubby & I enjoyed learning of the past/current history of the Markets. There were designated stallholder stops along the way, which Amelia would provide a background on & a small sample of their product was given to each of us to try or take home.Each stallholder was friendly even though it was a busy Tuesday morning.
Amelia was patient, friendly. Each person at the end of the tour was given a voucher for a free coffee & discounts to the stalls we had visited.
Tip- We went on the 9.30am tour before the huge crowds arrived.

I thought a market tour would be a bit tedious….wow was I wrong! Cheryl our guide was amazing, she REALLY knows her stuff, is clearly on fantastic terms with the stall owners and had our group engaged from the minute she introduced herself. I could have stayed with her for the day, hearing her stories about the history, the food, the people and the future of the markets and surrounds. I can’t recommend this experience highly enough.

Unfortunately, this tour was not worth $90 and portion size samples wore embarrassing.
We have done many tours and this was by far the worst, don't waste your money.
An example of the food you receive is not replicated in this picture.
Our sample sizes were so small she looked like counting grains of salt on a small spoon, this is no exaggeration. Three plain almonds, thimble size of plain yogurt, all of which we can buy from our nearest supermarket not unusual at all.
I could go on and on but I think you can see what a disappointing boring tour it is.

Lovely way to spend a Saturday morning, we were celebrating my husbands birthday and thought it was something different..
$60 per person was unfortunately a bit too expensive for what you actually got… I don’t believe it was value for money. I’m sure a lot of the vendors/stalls would of let you have a taste and tell you something special about their products.

Rachel our tour guide was lovely and had lots of knowledge and was happy to answer any questions.
I wouldn’t do it again, I think once you have experienced it once that is enough. More than happy to venture back and buy more own products.

Rachel has an extensive knowledge and her arrangements with the stall holders made the tour run smoothly with the range of tastings most of which are exclusive to us. Would be lovely to see you back in the mArket supporting stall holders and our wonderful Market.
