FABULOUS FREO FROLIC ADVENTURE
Come with us on a fabulous frolic through Freo (as the locals call it) and we’ll show you a whole world of hidden foodie gems and amazing local secrets that you might otherwise walk past without knowing that they exist!
This, however, will not be your typical walking tour. It’s all about interacting with fellow participants to share cuisines, stories and fun. Your guide will point out a few points of interest along the way and suggest things to order at each venue, but beyond that you are free to explore and experiment as much or as little as your hearts desire.
The cost of the guided tour has a tour price of $39. You need to bring approx $25 in coins and small notes with you to purchase the international delights along the way. We promise this will ensure you taste all the great cuisines on offer. At the end of the tour you’ll not only have a full belly but you will have met a whole new group of people and explored Fremantle’s cuisine and the history of this great port city.
A key ingredient to having a great time on our tours is the sharing of food. You will join with other Food Loose Tour Foodies and share the delights of varying portion sizes along the way. We recommend bringing small notes and coins, approximately $20 to $25.

Yes. We have vegetarian options on our tours. Be sure to let us know, well in advance, and we will ensure to suggest appropriate substitutions.
It is a good idea to arrive at the meeting location a minimum of 15 minutes prior to the tour start time. In fairness to the people, who arrived on time, we will leave sharply at the tour start time. If you are late, you may call us at on 0467 542 437 to try and find the group, once we have left the starting point. There are no guarantees you will be able to find the group, as our guides are narrating the tour and will not necessarily pick up their mobile phones. There are no reschedules or refunds for late comers, who cannot find the group.
We have a 48 hour rescheduling policy. You must notify us by email to email@example.com at least 48 hours before your tour to reschedule. Otherwise, unfortunately you will forfeit your ticket.
We’re on our feet for approximately 4 hours. We walk at a casual pace and stand in place for a few minutes at various attractions. The streets have a slight incline and you will have to walk down some stairs along the way. Please let us know in advance, if you have difficulty walking up/down stairs, and we will try to make arrangements for you.
Our friendly tour guides make learning about the history, culture, and foods of the areas we visit interesting, informative, and fun.

You may bring a stroller on the tour, but it will have to remain outside, if the food establishment is busy.
Pets are not allowed on any of our food tasting tours.
Our tours are specifically designed to take you to the “hidden gems” only a die hard Foodie knows about. Local West Australians take our tours and the usual response is “I never knew these hidden gems existed”. None of our tours have a touristy feel to them. Our goal is for you to interact, have fun and experience the culinary secrets of Perth City.
Tour guides tips are not included in the cost of your tour. Tips are not essential, however like most service, when its exceptional you are usually happy to provide a gratuity.
