Enjoy coffee to start, a sampling of the best falafel in town, plus many tastings as well as a banquet lunch. The grand finale is a palace of delicious sweets.

"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" KH

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!! Cheers Terry

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.
Fond regards Warren and Wendy K
