Wonderful food tour with a local! We had a wonderful food tour with Jamie-Lee. She is amazingly knowledgeable about food in general and Brisbane in particular. She was able to answer all my questions, and followed up with an email including all the information she mentioned so I had it in writing. A great tour with a super guide!

Before the day is out, you’ll indulge in a couple of locally handcrafted chocolates. These Queensland infused chocolates will be specifically selected based on your tastes.
Stop #6 - Enjoy a Tasting of Wine Paired with Two Kinds of Local Cheese
To conclude your afternoon, you’ll sit down with a platter of your carefully selected Queensland cheeses and locally made wine.


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!
