    We went for the Melbourne Foodie tour not knowing what to expect but were absolutely blown away by the attention to detail of our guide Annalisa and the route we were taken on. It's not just a foodie tour which does a great job of feeding you at great establishments, but also includes touring of the city's hidden secret spots and a beautiful spice shop. We've been on many tours but can't say we enjoy them as much as we did this time round. Definitely a must on your Melbourne list. If you have the honour of having Annalisa for your guide, you can be sure you're in for an extra good time!

    An absolute foodie's delight, the tour opened up so many cultural aspect of different International cuisines made its way to Australia. Whether you are a foodie or not , a tour with Food Trails will make you a tourist in your own city. Loved every stopover at the trail and every dish that was served with precision. Needless to say , your host (Himanshi) will take good care of you, while she dives deeper into a bit of the historic aspect of it. In short a must do trail if your visiting Melbourne or even if you happen to be a local.

    Such a great experience doing the Flemington trail today. Not only did we learn a bit of history we got to sample some amazing food. Make sure you add this to your list of things to do. Jim & Vicki

    Lovely day exploring the cultural culinary delights of Melbourne guided by Himanshi. Delicious food and plenty of intriguing information about some often overlooked gems in our city. Great to experience my own city as a tourist and find even more wonderful places to dine 😄

    The Sri Lankan online cooking class with Masterchef contestant Dee Williams was great: in 80 minutes, we'd whipped up a delicious barramundi curry, spiced rice and fresh, zingy salad. Dee shared great tips about the timing of the meal prep, how to combine the various spices and how best to bring out each one's individual flavours. My hot tip: do your prep first using the supplied recipe notes, so you can keep an ear out for all Dee's expert advice. She sets a cracking pace, so there's dinner on the table in no time!
