Meet Jamie-Lee – Delectable Tours’ Founder
Self-proclaimed local food and wine aficionado. Jamie-Lee lives to create memorable moments, and as a result created Delectable Tours to do just that – create memorable experiences that make people feel truly special.
I have always had a strong interest in the food and wine scene and the social experiences that often come with it.
I grew up in a wine region, where wine and associated festivals were such an important part of our community. It is something I associate with great food, friends, laughter and many treasured memories.
It is these experiences that I want to share with others.
“I want to take other food enthusiasts on this wonderful journey with me exploring all there is to experience in the world of local food and wine.”
Q. How does Delectable Tours differ from other food tours?
A. Unlike standard food tours, each dish is picked specifically to meet desired tastes and will be matched with a beverage-style of choice. All of Delectable Tours include private transportation to take you from door to door, and private dining is provided where possible.
Q. Are tours suitable for both locals and tourists?
A. Yes, If you’re a Brisbane local they are a great way to experience new restaurants that you may not have tried or to celebrate with a special experience. If you’re visiting Brisbane and don’t know where the best places are to eat, or what foods you should be trying from the region, then these experiences are the perfect way to see the city.
Q. How much do your tours cost?
A. Signature packages start at $140 p/p and customised experiences vary depending on what guests are looking for.
Q. What venues will we visit during a tour?
A. Delectable Tours pride itself on supporting wonderful venues that source their produce locally and highlight the local cuisine. We only take you to venues that have a strong reputation for excellent food and service and live up to their reputation.
Q. How often do you run your tours?
A. All of our tours are run on an on-demand basis.

“Had a wonderful progressive tapas experience with Jamie-Lee from Delectable Tours. Got to try some great tasting dishes superbly paired with beers and wine at two great up and coming Brisbane venues. Loved not having to think or worry about a thing on the night.
Thanks Jamie-Lee – Andrew H.”
