We had a fantastic time with Karyn and 11 others exploring Newtowns foodie haunts and hearing about the history of the area, which is one thing I love about taking walking food tours. Stories of the local cemetery were so interesting, along with information about...More

I'm glad I purchased this tour via redballoon (provided as a prize), because it wasn't worth $59 a person. We had to share the majority of the desserts with strangers, which again seems a bit ludicrous for such an expensive tour. We also had a...More

We were very disappointed with the safari! Not for foodies, small bites of sugary stuff to start with and ended with savoury. Very unprofessional - guide was late, not a strong leader, poorly dressed, did his own shopping while on tour, lots of time wasted...More

I went on a Foodi Tour of Newtown with a group of friends recently. We expected a variety of food, and some tastes and dishes that would be new to us, or exciting to try. We thought we'd try Lebanese cuisine, or African, or some...More

We paid $60 per head for a 'foodie Safari of Newtown'. We were really disappointed. Despite being asked to arrive 10 minutes early Dave the tour guide arrived 10 minutes late which meant we were all standing around for at least 20 minutes waiting for...More

The tour that we had was a pretty good introduction to Sydney's dessert/food scene and history. Our guide showed us a mix of hidden gems and well known places. I do think our group may be a challenging bunch to impress since we were mostly...More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
