Event Details

Truly a world in day, a glorious snapshot of multicultural Australia at its most delicious. Start the day with our dear friends at Grossi Florentino with a good Italian coffee and crostoli then delve into the fragrant Casa Iberica, the stronghold of Spanish, Portuguese, Mexican and South American ingredients, enjoy a mad fun series of tastes at our favourite English butcher, then many tastes at a Lebanese bakery and emporium, visit a traditional Afghan bakery and grocery store before lunch at the acclaimed Rumi and gelato to finish at Zero Gradi. Too good! The best day out.

Includes coach transport, coffee, tastings and lunch.

    Dear Suzy, ……. We had a great day on Saturday, the hospitality and passion at all the places we visited was so infectious. We ate till we dropped and we struggled home with our purchases like children who had been to the Melbourne show. Definitely a must do experience. Paula was a warm and knowledgeable host and we will be back for another trip.

    Thank you so much for a wonderful day on Saturday. We all had a wonderful day touring around Melbourne in the comfortable coach and visiting all those lovely people and places. The food was amazing and little wonder with such passionate people preparing it. We have lived in Melbourne for nearly 20years now and had not visited any of the places we went to. We certainly will be going back to them though. Many of our family & friends are keen to join us too. It really was great to hear everyone’s stories as it brings the food to life.
    Again, many thanks for your informative and fun way in which you led us around. It was a pleasure to meet you and the others on the safari

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.
