    The Food Trail Tour was easy walking. It was an excellent mix of indigenous bush tucker knowledge and tasting, Orange historical information and a sampling of local produce, including wines not sold at Cellar Doors. Our tour guide, Nicole, was engaging and fun. I highly recommend this tour. -

    Nicole gave us a fantastic historic tour of Orange complete with Indigenous flavour. Would definitely recommend as a great way to see Orange on foot and learn about its history and all the amazing local produce and producers. A local business worth supporting. -

    We had such an amazing experience ! Honestly, this was the best tour we ever did in Australia. Nicole was super friendly, very knowledgeable, relaxed, and brought us to the best places. This was an intimate tour and atmosphere, very enjoyable. We did a first tour on the Saturday, and we had such a great time that we booked another tour straight away. Nicole asked us what we liked, and she tailored the visit for us. We met lovely people (at wineries, olive place, also Gerald who was amazing at giving us some background and perspective on native plants) and had amazing food. We really recommend this tour, you will not regret it ! -

    5 star rating Food & Wine tour at its best! Nicole is a one of a kind host - she has so much local knowledge & experience, you are most definitely in the right hands. We had a lovely lunch to kick off the day followed by a carefully curated afternoon visiting some of the best wineries the Orange region has to offer. We will be back for more! -

    5 star rating Food wine and beer experience while enjoying a picturesque area. Nicole arranged this tour so well that it appealed to a group with differing ideas and views on food, wine and beer. The only thing she could not control was the weather, but her expertise was obvious when extremely heavy rain did not impact on the day, and actually added to the enjoyment when the outdoors picnic was moved to a magnificent farm home. Thoroughly enjoyable. -
