    Excellent city tour with Andrea.
    We booked a private 2 hour walking tour in Adelaide city for the first day of our stay. Usually these are later in the day but Flamboyance were very accommodating and arranged for 9.30am instead as wanted to be tour first thing. Andrea our tour guide was excellent! Very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend this company.

    Great tour!
    Andrea was a wonderful guide! A proud Adelaidian who was passionate about showing us her city. It was a very good way to orient ourselves and she gave lots of tips of what we could do on our own once the tour was over. Highly recommend!

    Walking Tour of Adelaide
    My partner and I highly recommend this excellent 90 minute Walking Tour. A big "thank you" to Andrea for showing us the sights. Andrea shared some personal anecdotes and gave us a great insight into the history of the city and South Australia.

    Great tour of Adelaide's street art
    Fab tour to see the street art of Jimmy C and his fellow artists. Brilliant art and fun to learn more about it. Just the right amount of time for the tour. Katina was great, easy to understand and knowledgeable. What a great way to see the streets of Adelaide.

    Fun, friendly and very insightful
    We were shown around by the very fun and friendly Katina who knows so such about her beautiful home town of Adelaide. Everything we learned was so interesting and it was the type of tour we didn’t want to end.

    Great tour of the old port
    Staying in Adelaide for the TDU we booked this tour for a change from the cycling. Port Adelaide was a bit of a mystery to us but Katina’s extensive tour provided us a great insight into the port as it was and is now. Her knowledgeable explanation of the history and land marks was peppered with great stories of the people and events in the port’s history. We thoroughly enjoyed the 2 1/2 hours which represented great value for money. Highly recommended!

    A Great Introduction to Adelaide
    This was a great walking tour. It helped us learn the basics of Adelaide while taking in some of the sights. It was quick which I liked so we had time afterwards to explore more of what we wanted. Very friendly staff.

    Getting an overview of Adelaide
    We wanted to get an overview of Adelaide when we first arrived so we could plan the rest of our visit. Kat was a great guide and walked us around to some of the highlights while sharing items of interesting history, and local tidbits. Kat is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and her love of Adelaide shows. It was a nice introduction to the city.

    Fun Introduction to Adelaide
    What a fun and informative walk with Katina around Adelaide’s Central Business District. This is a must-do tour for newbies to the city and probably even for long-time residents. Katina is a local (born and raised). She exudes energy and passion for her beautiful city of Adelaide. I learned a lot about the city’s history, architecture, and controversies during the ninety-plus minute amble from Rundle Mall and alleyways to peek at local Street Art. This was an excellent tour and is highly recommended.

My husband and I both really enjoyed the tour as an introduction to the city. Kat had lots of interesting information which gave depth to lots of the stops we made...and food we tried. She had lots of personal connections to places she talks about, which made it feel very real and not just somebody delivering a speech.
As a result we made an effort to get to try a local food for dinner...a pie floater which we both enjoyed very much too!
Would strongly recommend this tour to tourists and locals as Kat’s information would be relevant to both!

Today my mum and I used our SA Great State experience voucher. We chose The F Factor Food Tour run by Katina from Flamboyance Tours. I am a proud Adelaidian and absolutely love supporting South Australian products.

We highly recommend doing this tour for locals and interstate overseas travellers.

Thank you Katina from the moment we were greeted right through the whole tour you were so warm and welcoming. I love how passionate you are about South Australia and the amazing products we have to offer.

After the tour we stayed on at The Adelaide Central Markets and bought some amazing South Australian products.

I look forward to joining one of your other tours soon.

Katina is a phenomenal, lovely and down-to-earth human who made the experience of the tour like you were being shown around the city by a friend. My partner and I loved how she tied in her nostalgia for the city with her memories, humour and history. It was such a thoughtful tour that is worth every penny. Will be back for more. - Makayla & Joel

Loved learning about the family owned and operated food business’s in Adelaide today! Katina is a local and really knows the history of the places we visited and the food we tried.
Come with an empty stomach though as we were given samples of chocolate, nuts, pastries, pies, iced coffee and small goods.
Loved that the tour ended in the Central Market and I was able to pick up some yummy food for a home made pizza for dinner.
Totally recommend anyone visiting Adelaide to take this tour 👍🙏🏻

We thoroughly enjoyed The F Factor tour with Katina who was a very friendly and highly engaging guide. Her love of Adelaide shone throughout the tour!

As locals it was so lovely to slow down and sample some of SA’s food icons whilst listening to some very interesting tales about the places we often take for granted.

A great experience and can absolutely recommend to others without hesitation.

My husband and I just spent a lovely 2 hours walking around Adelaide sampling some delicious food with the very knowledgeable and enthusiastic Katina. Even though we are both residents of Adelaide we learnt a lot of interesting facts that we were not aware of and my husband tasted his first frog cake! I can thoroughly recommend this tour and make sure you don’t eat before hand. Katina was very accommodating with letting us reschedule our original date at the last minute due to me getting COVID. Thanks again Katina for a wonderful day.

Not having been to Adelaide before we decided to book this tour.
Kat was funny, informative and knowledgeable. The tour covers a lot of Adelaide's city foodie icons.
We booked the 11am tour and we're very glad we had only a small breakfast - so many goodies.
Just make sure you're at the right Haighs for the start of the tour.
Would definitely recommend Kat & her tours

This is a fantastic tour - I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Not only do you get to taste test some of the random food that is part of every Adelaidians childhood, you also get to find out how it came about with interesting historical tidbits. Katina cleverly draws together the stories of the brands along with personal experience into an engaging tale - and there are lots of nibbles that you can take home with you as well. Highly recommended.
