The Saffron Tour at Argyle Saffron was so interesting, Nicole being local kept us informed about the area on the way out to the farm with information only a local would know about. I would recommend to anyone wanting to know anything about saffron to do this tour.

Thank you Nicole for an engaging and enjoyable morning attending a tour of Argyle Saffron. The drive out (20minutes) was full of information about Orange. Nicole was professional and informative. We are so glad as locals we could “play tourist.” Thanks also to Angela and Brendan at Argyle Saffron.

We did the 'tasting trail' as part of the 2022 Orange Food and Wine Festival. At $115 per person, we expected that 'tasting' would be a substantial part of the tour. What we got was two hours of wandering around Orange town centre with a rambling and unfocused commentary. It was grossly overpriced, too long, and not very interesting. Important aspects of the region's history were glossed over (the gold rush, for example), but we heard about how the traffic in Orange is worse since the bypass was built. We saw the inside of a shopping centre (because we don't see those anywhere else). The only tasting involved was a piece of damper and a biscuit with some jam at the end of the tour, as part of the Indigenous bush food experience. That part of the tour was OK and the damper, biscuit and jam were very good, but still not worth $115. For comparison, the following day we enjoyed an exceptional 4 course gourmet meal as another Festival event run by a different organisation, for $130 per person. The contrast was stark. We hope that other tours run by this organisation are better and better value.

As the owner of this tour business and the guide for the day, I was dissapointed to read that our tour did not meet your expectations. I did not pick up on the fact that you found the tour too long or not interesting. To date, we have received only positive feedback about this tour but we will take your comments into consideration.

The lovely Nicole went above and beyond in her communication tailoring a perfect half day itinerary suited to our tastes. On the day we were looked after by Sharon who was a lovely driver and guide. She was very knowledable on the local area, great to chat to and went out of her way to provide some great local tips and advice! Really enjoyed the variety of the x3 cellar doors we visited and the food and wine pairing at Ross Hill Vineyard was a stand out! Thank you for a lovely half day out and showing us around your beautiful back yard. We look forward to the next trip and highly recommend booking a tour with Country Food Trails!
