Luxury Food Tour
“Welcome to the Ultimately Sydney Food Tour” was the announcement on the speaker, as we stepped into the coach. That was our cue to get our taste buds tantalising and whet our appetites for the gourmet indulgence ahead!
Helen is the owner and was our driver and Tour guide for the day. She runs private luxury tours for overseas visitors, and also local for interstate clients. She is friendly, outgoing and engages with us to make sure we have a wonderful experience!
Five reasons to tour with Ultimately Sydney are:
- Premium small group tours up to 14 people
- Flexible luxury private tour itineraries tailored to individual tastes
- Courtesy pick up from city hotels
- Luxury travel in modern air-con vehicles & informative commentary
- Multiple stops at iconic landmarks or take photos or enjoy the scenery
Well, those reasons were sufficient to tick all my boxes, and I am eager to get going!
Helen drove through the historical area of Barangaroo first, and past numerous buildings of stage 1. Her explanation of the stage 2 construction plan was quite exciting. And more so the beautiful creation of stage 3. Her explicit details and running commentary of this old Aboriginal site were quite fascinating.
We then arrive at our first stop, Anason Turkish Restaurant. This place was abuzz with hungry eaters taking their seats. Our food arrives and we are eager to start tucking into the Turkish mezze plates. We exchange nods of approval while devouring every delectable morsel of food! After enjoying the Turkish food, we stroll around the precinct to check out the other restaurants and bars.
Next stop is Glebe at the Tramsheds.
The transformation of the old Tram sheds, and the former Harness Racing Cub, into a Foodies Paradise was astonishing! We dined in a refurbished tram that could comfortably seat 10 people. We have a quick tour of this precinct and sample some of the produce at the Artisan Farmers Markets.
After sampling a few tasty sharing plates at the Farmer and the Butcher Restaurant, we are back on the bus to stop 3.
There were so many unusual varieties of Gin to choose from, that made the choice difficult. Our next stop the Three Blue Ducks Restaurant at Rosebery.
“Rustic history comes alive with an industrial warehouse vibe and laid-back charm”. That’s how they describe their restaurant. The sous chef explains the menu, and the use of locally farmed produce. However I was more interested in the “paddock to plate” ethos. We shared 4 enticing platters, and could not wait to start eating!
I’l let you be the judge, so make a date and don’t miss the bus! It’s a relaxing experience eating your way around Sydney!
