I went for a Melbourne Foodie Culture tour and to be very honest, I had some of the most amazing food and experience! I've always been a fan of collecting stories and this trip was exactly that! It's well-curated, takes into consideration your food preferences, takes you to the best spots in town, I think my favourite was the Aboriginal Food Joint where we had some authentic aboriginal food and the ending where we met someone who'd gone to a gelato - school to learn how to make gelato! There are sooo many cultures here in Melbourne and it was a pure delight to be able to access them all in a span of 4 hours along with so many stories! I got some great stories for my IG - @capturesmagic so tbh FOODIE TRAILS - YOU ARE MAGIC ✨ thank you for the experience!
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.
My second tour with Foodie Trails and had a very enjoyable experience learning some more of Melbourne's cultural history and it's influence on cuisine. Wonderfully hosted by Janet.
My mum and I had a great time on the Foodie Trails in Moonee Ponds. Himanshi is very friendly and knowledgeable and took us to some great places. We met some fun people and had amazing food and drinks. Well recommended👍
