    I live, eat, read, cook ,and dream about food, it's pretty much my life! So I was ecstatic when I received a gift certificate for a Gourmet Food Safari for my 40th birthday! My husband and I absolutely loved the Sunday exploring with Maeve! The places that we went to were awesome and so interesting. The food was incredibly yummy and there was lots of it! We pretty much rolled home to East Maitland! We are now looking at a Gourmet Safari in Melbourne in the future. Maeve is so bubbly and so friendly and makes everyone in her presence feel special.

    The tour was absolutely fantastic and a great way to learn about the very tasty produce that goes into creating Greek dishes. Tour guides Liz and Fotini were great, and had an extensive knowledge about the art of Greek cuisine. There was lots of food sampling and opportunities to make purchases at each of the stores visited. The day ended with a Greek banquet and very full tummies. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves food or wants to broaden their horizons.

    A week of eating, drinking, shopping and galleries - what more could you want? Well how about fantastic scenery, a great hotel, relaxing spa treatments and the fun trips across Lake Wakatipu in the water taxi. Add to that the friendly locals, creative chefs and inspiring artists. The icing on the cake, however, was the charming, chatty company of a great group of women. Every one of them was a delight!

    Dear Maeve and Kate, thank you both so much for making the NZ Gorgeous Girls Safari so amazing. It was such a pleasure to spend time with you and your attention to detail and expertise was much appreciated. Every place we visited was full of warmth and memorable characters and the scenery was nothing short of jaw-dropping. It was so much more than just a holiday - it was a wonderful experience that will stay with me for the rest of my life.

    I have been meaning to write something all year about how utterly fantastic this trip was. I planned it for a significant birthday and honestly, I could not have found a better way to celebrate it. Please thank the gorgeous Kate and Maeve again too. The scenery was exquisite as was the pinot, the food, the road trips, art galleries, clothing stores and more. And to top it off, the dancing with total abandon in a restaurant with music cued by our generous and inspiring hosts and chefs. What a night! This holiday really was the trip of a lifetime and I would change nothing. My only regret is that I waited so long to go on one of the Gorgeous Safaris. My advice to women is to book one right now and let the indulgence begin! What a beautiful week it was. I have made some great friends from the Queenstown trip and I know I'll end up on another Food Safari with them, somewhere, sometime in the not too distant future. Many thanks again for these great, great tours. You are all an inspiration!

    We had a fabulous time on this tour. Our guide Damien was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It was on the tour that morning that we discovered the Paris attacks had occurred, so will live in our memories for multiple reasons. The croissant class was fun and a true group event, and we learnt how to tell a butter croissant from a margarine one. The charcuterie was a marvel, and definitely a place to which we will return, pack your cold bricks! The Cheese room was a surprise and a true hidden gem which we would never have found alone. The bakery was interesting with truly great sourdough, and bronuts! The Pahran market was interesting, followed by a sit down meal/discussion with multi-course food and wine. Loved the vinegar tasting, who knew you could do that? Will definitely try a different one when we get another chance to getaway.
