Adelaide's fun foods

If you’ve visited before, you’re a huge foodie, or you just want something authentic to do in Adelaide, this food history tour is for you!

What is fritz? A frog cake? Find out as you join us for our two-hour Adelaide food tour around the city centre, where you will discover the local meats and sweets of South Australia. As we detail the history of these locally made products, you’ll taste the city’s best chocolate, nuts, and iced coffee, plus oddities we grow up eating in Adelaide: a frog cake and some fritz. Finally, lunch will be provided from within the market at a popular bakery (a meat pie/pasty etc of your choice). You’ll take away a surprise dessert plus extra goodies to continue your Adelaide food journey.

This is a fun, unique Adelaide tour about the city’s love for quirky food, taken with a maximum of 10 people. Walk away knowing more about Adelaide than the average traveller, and be sure to bring a shopping bag as you’ll have time to make purchases at our stops.

SCHOOL GROUPS: we run this tour for students with a shortened 1.5 hour itinerary. Contact us for more information.

Your tour is led by local guide/Flamboyance Tours owner Katina, who previously worked for Topdeck Travel taking travellers to more than 20 countries across Europe. Her expertise translates back to her home city, where you will gain an insightful Adelaide experience. Adelaide tours on foot can’t get any better!
