I bought the Ultimately Sydney Rags To Riches culinary tour for my fiancés birthday and we had THE BEST day. We both live in Sydney but wanted to explore our own backyard and a precinct we love and Helen's knowledge of The Rocks area is second to none. We discovered little gems we didn't know existed, the food was delicious (as were the drinks!) and it was a super easy stroll around discovering the historical pocket of Sydney. Helen's enthusiasm is infectious and it was so lovely meeting her. We'll definitely be investigating other tours!

This tour was a real highlight of our recent trip to Sydney. Our group could have all fitted in one vehicle but we were picked up from our accommodation in two luxurious vehicles so that we had room to be comfortable and really enjoy our day. This is the kind of thoughtful and excellent service that Helen and her staff give you during your tour. The food and drinks on this tour is AMAZING!! You get a glimpse into the plethora of top shelf eateries that Sydney has to offer without booking months in advance or lining up for hours. Helen's knowledge of the city and its eateries if inspiring. I highly recommend you do this tour, you will go hungry and come back with a full stomach and some great knowledge about the city and suburbs. You will not be disappointed.

Let me describe the food tour, with the tastes and aromas that make your senses come alive. The duck pancakes at Lotus set a high bar, accompanied by a brief history of the indigenous life of Barangaroo. Balmain has a rich history of nautical life, but it was the transformation of a transport terminus that caught our attention. Eating in a tram is fun. Then to Rosebery via Newtown for the feels. You could do a food trip to King Street alone. Another time. The Black Star Pastry in Rosebery delivered a marvellous watermelon cake. Coffee was spot on, balancing the comestibles. A gin and tonic cleansed the palate, before the final leg of the tour to our wine tasting. Two whites, a rose and three reds were found at the bar - no joke. The charcuterie board was on point, with fennel salami and creamy brie. Actually, our host Helen is the secret sauce to the whole experience. Without her, the tour would be just a succession of flavours and fragrances. Book now while you can!

We originally booked a day to the blue mountains, however the weather was so bad with fog and mist we were in danger of wasting our entire day travelling to see nothing . Antonio our guide was excellent, he took us first to Featherdale zoo to see and experience the koala & kangaroos, then after travelling for 30 mins towards the mountains realised that our experience was going to be severely compromised by the weather, suggested to turn back to Sydney offering us his expert knowledge on an excellent tour of Sydney and the beaches for the rest of the day. We can not recommend Antonio enough for his attention and knowledge

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the day. It can be disappointing to drive all that way to see nothing. Antonio has his finger on the pulse and we are very lucky to have him on our team. We hope you are able to join a Blue Mountains tour in the future.
