    Afternoon Susie,
    We had an amazing time on Saturday with Jenny, our Lebanese Walking Safari was more than we expected. All the shops we visited were so friendly especially the pizza place (which was not on our tour) Manouche making on a Saj, was just wonderful.The food from all the shops was beautiful and too much, so generous were the shop keepers. Our purchase of goods again the Butcher shop was very accommodating to keep our meat & small goods until the end of our tour were wonderful.And then there was Jenny, we could not ask for anyone more dedicated to her culture and her food……just amazing beautiful person. Thanks again, look forward to another tour next year, if possible let me know when your new tours are available next year. Have a wonderful Christmas & Happy New Year to all.
    Kind Regards, Diann Badger, Symone Denham, Dianne Hogwood & Laney LaTroube. November 2022

    Hi Suzy, Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how much we enjoyed the day last Saturday – it certainly was a feast with great company and a wonderful host in Nancy. Apart from the great food we learnt a considerable amount about Lebanese fare and having Nancy there to share her Lebanese background and knowledge as well as her very, very funny stories made the day that much more relaxing and enjoyable. Will certainly be recommending this to our friends.

    Hi Suzy, I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Punchbowl safari on Saturday 7 May. It was a gift from a friend for my birthday last year. Nancy was lovely and very informative. The lunch was sensational. Will definitely be going back to Jasmin restaurant. This must be about my 10th safari and as usual I loved it. Can’t wait for the next one!!

  4. KH

    Just wanted to let you know what a lovely day we had on Saturday. Our ‘leader’ Judy was great, enthusiastic & knowledgeable and made everyone feel very welcome – as did all the proprietors of the businesses we visited. My sister (also Judi) who went on your first tour many years ago, really enjoyed the day. Neither of us would hesitate to go back on a shopping/food day on our own or to recommend the tour to friends. Thanks again

How does a gift certificate work?

Our Gourmet Safaris gift certificates are valid for 12 months and can be used on any of our safaris. You can nominate part or all of the amount of a safari. Safaris range in price from $130 to $165. Bookings can then be made online ​or over the phone ​by calling (02) 8969 6555 by the recipient using the gift certificate number.

Do I have to nominate which tour my friend receiving the certificate attends?

No – the beauty of this system is that you give your friend an inspired present and they can choose which Safari and date​ suits them.

Do I need to be vaccinated to do a tour?

Yes, we require all our attendees to be fully vaccinated

Can I buy gift certificates for more than one person at a time?

Of course. This often happens around Christmas and is easily done in one transaction. You will have a Continue Shopping prompt and be able to fill in details for as many as you’d like.

Why do you need my friend’s mobile number and email address?

This just makes it easier for us if you would like the certificate sent by us to the recipient with your message.

Can I change my booking?

Our terms are “bookings are final at time of payment” but if we receive sufficient notification we can usually make changes for you. (Obviously the more notification the better). Unfortunately if we are notified in the week leading up to the tour, we would be unable to change/cancel/transfer your booking (unless we have people on a wait list and they are able to attend). Bookings are transferrable so if you are unable to attend you can transfer the booking to someone else.


Why are Gourmet Safaris Gift certificates the perfect gift?

We find most people treasure experiences over gathering more stuff. A Gourmet Safari opens up new and delicious worlds and is always a fun day out, whether people are dedicated cooks or just love exploring new flavours and places.

Does Safaris director Maeve attend all the safaris?

As many as she can but each safari is led by experienced guides who have grown up with the food you’ll be exploring. Many live in the neighbourhoods the safaris visit which gives our tours a unique edge. You’re welcome to email or call Safaris manager Suzy to check which safaris Maeve will be attending. or 02 8969 6555.
