Reviews from some of our other Brisbane Food Tours

Our Host, Jamie-Lee was fantastic; very knowledgeable, personable and enthusiastic to share the different food tastes available in Brisbane. As a local, we found four new dining places/bars to share with our friends. We learnt the history of each establishment and Jamie went out of her way to ensure we enjoyed ourselves.

Highly recommend Delectable Tours. I celebrated a special birthday with friends and Jamie-Lee made sure to create the perfect day tour for us. Very professional and informative.
September 2022
I recently went on a Walking Food Tour with Jaimie-lee as part of a conference activities program. Although the weather was a little iffy, it was a superb afternoon visiting iconic locations and sampling both foods and wines from the Brisbane and surrounding areas. Jaimie-lee is very knowledgeable, easy going and thorough even though she had to keep our group on track .... akin to herding a group of cats at times! Thank you Delectable Tours for a great afternoon in the Brisbane CBD.
