A food­ies’ guide to Fre­man­tle

Fremantle Gazette - - #SNAPPERTH - Belinda Cipri­ano

HUS­BAND and wife team Lucy and Michael Deller are hoping their tours with a dif­fer­ence will prove a hit in the port city.

The Fre­man­tle lo­cals, who have worked in the hospi­tal­ity and tourism in­dus­tries for years, launched Fre­man­tle Tours last Wed­nes­day.

Mr Deller said the tours epit­o­mised Fre­man­tle and would in­clude cy­cling, food, drinks and walk­ing tours.

“An out­ing is like be­ing shown around a new city by one of your old­est and most pas­sion­ate friends,” Mr Deller said.

“You can ex­pect to share lots of laughs, learn all about the his­tory of Fre­man­tle and lis­ten to fam­ily sto­ries, passed down through many gen­er­a­tions.”

Hav­ing pre­vi­ously worked as a tour guide across WA, Mr Deller said com­ing to­gether with his wife made sense.

“Lucy’s ca­reer in hospi­tal­ity and man­age­ment, paired with my back­ground in tourism and en­vi­ron­men­tal his­tory, pro­vided the per­fect part­ner­ship,” he said.

“We will op­er­ate four types of tours, with each pro­vid­ing peo­ple with a chance to ex­pe­ri­ence the rich his­tory of the port city, gain­ing an in­sight into Fre­man­tle hot spots from the past, present and into the fu­ture.

“The Drink tour will op­er­ate ev­ery Thurs­day, start at one of Fre­man­tle’s trendi­est bars and con­tinue on to visit a to­tal of four bars. This tour will pro­vide cus­tomers with a chance to min­gle with Freo’s best bar­tenders, brew­ers and wine con­nois­seurs, learn­ing all the tricks of the trade.

“The Eat tour will be avail­able for pri­vate func­tions and con­sists of a three-course din­ner, tak­ing in the very best restau­rants Fre­man­tle has to of­fer and give an in­sight into each venue.”

Fre­man­tle Mayor Brad Petit said the tour com­pany would be a great ad­di­tion to Fre­man­tle’s tourism mix.

“Michael and Lucy are lo­cals, pas­sion­ate about our city’s his­tory, cre­ativ­ity and char­ac­ter,” he said. “We look for­ward to see­ing their vin­tage bi­cy­cles vis­it­ing lo­cal busi­nesses and show­ing off all that Fre­man­tle has to of­fer.”
