Testimonials

Like catching up with an old friend

Nicole made our experience more like catching up with an old friend than being herded through the typical tour experience. 

Make it a point to take at least one of Nicole’s tours.

Curated with consideration and care

Can not recommend Country Food Trails more highly. My partner and I don’t usually consider booking tours as they often fail to showcase the true spirit of a place and we prefer the flexibility of setting our own schedule. However, Nicole’s thoughtfully hand-picked experiences immediately appealed with its inclusion of smaller local businesses and off-the-beaten-track stops.

Sharon our guide was so warm and thoughtful, and such a pleasure to chat to on the drives between stops and on the walking tour of Milthorpe. Far from a stuffy ride for tourists, the whole experience felt like catching up with old friends, personalised and intimate, curated with consideration and care. We left with huge smiles and armed with an insiders insight into Orange.

Thank you for such a wonderful afternoon, we’re already looking forward to the next trip.
