What is the Delectable Taste of Queensland Tour?

With everything from coffee to a seasonal lunch, as well as some delicious wines, cocktails, and delectable nibbles along the way, this must-do food experience of Brisbane will introduce you to some of the best food and beverages in the region. It includes visits to four unique Brisbane venues on a small-group food experience (maximum eight participants). Your knowledgeable guide will tell you all about the food you’re eating, plus the Brisbane food scene, and a little about the areas you visit so you get much more than just the food on your plate. Brisbane is truly a foodie city on the rise and is evolving into one of Australia’s hot spots for both casual and fine dining. It is no wonder when you consider the amazing variety and quality of local produce surrounding the city. This is why doing a food experience in Brisbane is a must! There are a few things all of our experiences have in common and that is an emphasis on local produce, local venues, operators, artisans and producers. This food experience of Brisbane is no different! This tour has been specially designed to showcase some of the city’s finest produce and the ever-evolving food culture that Brisbane is now being recognised for. Whilst devouring some of Brisbane's best dishes and local produce, you will also be guided on a journey of Brisbane's food history, the stories behind the area and the places you'll visit. You will learn first-hand from both your local guide and venues how Brisbane has evolved into a World-Class foodie destination.

Reviews

Amazing! My boyfriend and I were a little skeptical about booking this tour since it included food options we really didn't care for but Jamie-Lee was beyond amazing. She was able to alter our menu to better fit our palettes. She was exceptionally knowledgeable about Brisbane, the food, and the culture. She made our food tour one of the most memorable excursions we've ever endured. I completely would recommend her and her team for your food tour needs.

Jamie-Lee is amazing! This tour is worth every cent. Firstly the fact that pick up and drop off is provided is so convenient. It allows you to see the city without having to worry about renting a car or navigation. There were several stops on this tour; all local. We had coffee, cocktails and enjoyed a winery. Jamie-Lee has a great personality and really wants to make sure you enjoy your time. She makes it personal and customizes it. I can not recommend this tour enough.

I found Delectable Tours via Tripadvisor and was impressed with the reviews so I decided to book for my wife's birthday. We went for the Taste of Queensland package. I can safely say this was one of the best food tours I have been on. Jamie-Lee's service was fantastic and it was wonderful experiencing all the different dishes from the various locations. We received some unique insights and experiences that I think both local Queenslanders and visitors from out of town will love. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Delectable Tours!
