When I was looking for things to do in Perth over the coming months, I stumbled across Eat The Street Walking Tours. It's pretty obvious that I am a lover of food and I assume that those of you who are reading this are also food lovers.
The Luxury Travel Guide has named Eat The Street Walking Tours the Unique Experience of the Year 2016, so it is definitely worth seeing what all of the fuss is about!
The tour I chose the Barrack To Beaufort Tour ($65) which took place on Saturday afternoon.
After the introductions were made, we began our short journey from The Bell Tour to Aqua Bar. I really enjoyed this bar, I hadn't noticed it above The Lucky Shag…until now.
We were directed outside to a well sheltered area, where sat down at our reserved table and we enjoyed our first dish and a glass of French champers. The slivers of steak were beautiful but I am going to put this out there… the polenta chips were the best I have tasted in Perth… yet!
The next venue was Halford Bar on Cathedral Avenue. We took our reserved table and were given the drinks list to choose a cocktail. We decided to get a few different cocktails so that we could taste a few options.
What I really enjoyed about the tour was the fact that I felt like I was being shown around the city with a few girlfriends and not so much a tourist. This was made simple and comfortable as all areas were reserved and we didn't have to approach any bars. It was an extremely personal experience with a few new friends celebrating the eateries and bars from Barrack to Beaufort Street, with snippets of history a long the way.
Eat The Street Tours have more than one tour options available, whether you are after a brunch or afternoon/evening tour. If you have dietary requirements (like me), it's not an issue, just let Jacqueline know and an alternative can be organised especially for you. On a last note, there is no way you could find all of the new bars and eateries so easily or find all of the featured food and drinks for $65 by yourself!
