Testimonials

Prompt, knowledgeable, relaxed and fun!

Nicole was exactly the type of guide you want in Orange – prompt, knowledgeable (a true local), relaxed and fun!

It was a pleasure to deal with Nicole and I would recommend her to anyone visiting Orange who wants to feel as though someone who knows the place has shown them round.

Like catching up with an old friend

Nicole made our wine and history tour of Orange interesting. We had been on tours before that had made us feel not so special but with Nicole we had felt like we were catching up with an old friend. The wineries were lovely that she had arranged for us to visit. 

We highly recommend anyone joining a tour with Country Food Trails.

Warm Hospitality

I asked if Nicole could arrange a wineries tour for our group of 8. I was happy to leave it to her, as it was evident that she is knowledgeable and keen to create a great experience for all! We visited 3 smaller, boutique wineries.

I will recommend her tours to all my friends. I am keen to try her other tours as soon as I can.

Second tour with Nicole

This is the second time we have used Country Food Trail for a small group, private, wine tour. Nicole provided an excellent, professional service on each occasion. She has in-depth knowledge of the history and produce in the Orange region.

We will definately go back to Orange and use her services again.
