About Taste Tours
Taste Tours is a social enterprise and charity which offers cultural food tours in the diverse suburbs and town centres of Sydney, as well as in the CBD. All tours are led by local guides, who share their secrets on the best places to eat and shop for authentic dishes and ingredients. Every tour includes tastings in-stores, cafes and restaurants, more than enough for lunch. We show you the sights and tell you all the local stories. All our profits are re-invested into tour guide training and employment for under or unemployed people to support them into the career path of their choice. Trainees are newly arrived migrants or refugees, or young people.

Great chance to explore part of Sydney offering specialties from Syria, Afghanistan and Persia. Tastings were generous and a wide variety of savoury and sweet - good to be introduced to some new diushes and try different versions of old favourites. Also great to discover grocery stores to buy ingredients for cooking at home. Alla was an excllent guide

What a treat! Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly and the food was generally scrumptious. Cultural chat was an added bonus.

Recently we did the Asian food tour of Chatswood. We discovered many hidden gems. It was so good to go to places I would walk past...but this time I went in and experienced parts of their menu, eating things I may not have ordered myself. Not only did we eat our way around but shopping at 2 supermarkets was part of the itinerary. Our guide was friendly and informative. It was fun being part of a tour and meeting other people. I would recommend this.

Great day out. Delicious food, well managed and the guide Alah was delightful. My favourite was the initial Syrian breakfast dishes. This restaurant was also a special experience from the fountain to the central light. So interesting Make sure to pace yourself -- it is ALL amazingly yummy.

The Taste of Parramatta tour with my older aged parents recently, was a really enjoyable lunchtime experience together! (Note - We had the walking tour only, as the ferry ride was not included, or necessary on this occasion. We’re pretty local.) Despite being a cool, grey winter day (with the occasional sprinkle), we warmed up by starting with a great cup of absolutely delicious hot chocolate (or coffee) at Adora Chocolates, before leisurely strolling along to sample a good range of other local taste sensations and cuisines, in several parts of Parramatta that we were not usually familiar with. The most enjoyable discovery for me was at Oriental Tuckerbox - Seriously the BEST freshly made sushi I have ever had in Sydney!! (And I have tried so many) Along the journey, Sahar, our friendly tour guide made a point of choosing places with freshly made to order items. Service was quite prompt and the tour included some relevant historical points of interest (per photo) as well. Finished off the day perfectly with a rich, smooth and creamy treat at Rivareno (authentic Italian gelato) - surprisingly tucked away near the train station, and made for an easy transition heading back home! Happy to recommend and go back to supporting all of these local businesses once again. Thank you Sahar and Taste Cultural Food Tours for another lovely day!
