The tour was really interesting - particularly the history of the Newtown area and some of the places that we stopped at along the way. All of the food stops were good. There was quite a variation in styles along the way. The pub at the end was a good place to finish (particularly if you like to have a beer). 4/5 by Peter Quiggin 20-5-2017

The tour guide was excellent, really well informed , interesting and entertaining. The food was yummy ! Lots of new experiences . 5/5 by Jacqueline Duncan 14-4-2017
I enjoyed all the food places that we went to, it suited my tastes well, and had a pretty good cross section of foods for the amount of time. We also cover a nice amount of Newtown cafe district.
I really enjoy the history talks that go along with the relaxed walking. Great for people wanting to find some good places without having to sample everywhere themselves. :-) 4/5 by Craig rees 9-4-2017

We enjoyed our day but felt that the food was not as good or as plentiful as our Surry Hill safari. We do d love learning about the history of the area. 4/5 by Deborah Goodman 12-3-2017
Really enjoyed the food safari - Owen was a great host and definitely made the walk/talk/eat relaxing and fun. The number in the group was good too, as you had the opportunity at different locations to meet and talk to different people. Would definitely recommend the tour and look to doing more in the future. 4/5 by Kathy Wallace 9-1-2017
Owen did a superb job; he is both personable and knowledgeable and is key to the success of this tour. We appreciated learning about the history of Newtown and its culinary institutions. He also improvised on the fly while we were waiting on a restaurant to open and squeezed in a visit to a wholefoods grocer.
The event got off to a great start (especially with foodie-focussed highlights like the cronut, xiaolongbao and watermelon cake) but the final (pub) venue was a bit of a let down rather than the climax we hoped for. The curly fries and mac&cheese balls were good, just not substantial enough. Expected something along the lines of pulled pork sliders. C'mon guys, finish with a bang! 3/5 by Mercedes 9-1-2017
Tania was an excellent guide. Very knowledgable about history of Newtown and food industry in general. 5/5 by Jennifer Abbott 3-12-2016
