A fun walking food tasting tour! This culinary adventure is a treat for all the senses. Along the way are stops at restaurants where you will taste the foods of the area's best and most popular restaurants. From the finest dining in town to the hidden gems, you will get a multi-sensory view of the culture and local flavor. It's a lovely stroll with a side dish of history, a dash of culture and a taste of the Bluegrass.

The sites are rich with history and of course the delicious cuisine! This is a perfect way to spend an afternoon with friends and/or family. It is perfect for families young and old. We had... More

I really enjoyed the tour! It was very informational not only about restaurants, their chefs, menus, etc., but also historical knowledge also. Walking in historic Gratz Park was a treat, and I enjoyed all the tidbits of history that were presented. I do not eat red meat, so the hot dog stand was lost on me, but the rest of... More

What an amazing and delicious way to see downtown Lexington. Our host was friendly, informative, and had a great selection of restaurants for us. She also had it nicely paced so that we we not feeling stuffed and were able to enjoy all six restaurants. Highly recommend this tour, it is well worth the cost which is very reasonable.

We filled up the entire tour with our family reunion, so it was lovely to have a private tour, a little walking and tasting, some history of Lexington. Excellent food, our whole group loved it. Good value.

Thank you to Laura for a really pleasant and delicious culinary tour during our sister's weekend in Lexington. The variety of establishments was really terrific and the information about so many others we couldn't get to was very useful. Loved the blueberry buckwheat pancakes, the chili dogs and the bread pudding. Loved eating at the outside counter at Cheapside. I... More

Although this is a walking tour you aren't walking that far between stops. This is a great way to spend 3 hours and eating some delicious food. I took my husband for his birthday on a Saturday morning and we both had fun even though it rained most of the time. Lexington is a beautiful city and the history behind... More
