While our group (only one other couple) may have been small, we loved the personable nature of the experience. We enjoyed meeting the local couple wanting to learn more of their home town. Laura was extremely personable and knowledge of the restaurants she shared with us. This tour satisfied our 'foodie' nature and was a wonderful way to experience 6... More

After taking this tour with the excellent guide Laura, you will want to spend a week in Lexington! The tour was a perfect blend of history and restaurant tastings, as well as information on other places to visit in the downtown area. The restaurant choices were varied and all very interesting! Our group had some cool surprises along the way... More

Heard about the rich history of Lexington as well as the wonderful and diverse food options in the city. Laura was a pure delight! She was knowledgable and insightful. The food... More

While planning a long weekend to the city I found this tour on-line. My husband & I had a wonderful time strolling through this charming neighborhood and sampling gourmet delights. Our tour guide Laura was very informative and personable. It's obvious that she loves Lexington and good food. It's true that you can't judge a book by it's cover because... More

On July 25th we did the Bleu Plate Tour of Lexington. It was a great tour of local restaurants with some history of Lexington thrown in. You don't need to eat before doing this tour. We sampled food at each restaurant and left with a new list of restaurants to visit again.

We enjoyed this tour very much. So much history and so much excellent food. Skip breakfast and you won't be needing lunch after this tour.

Laura did a great job and we really enjoyed learning about Lexington and its food. The tour could have been even better if, instead of the hot dog and pizza stops, we had had a few more stops like Distilled, where a talented local chef created something unique and specifically related to the region.

Loved our Saturday morning tour with Laura. She was funny and very knowledgeable about not only the good restaurants in the city but also the history of Lexington. You get to know the restaurants and eateries that you want to go to and know that you are going to get good quality. Lexington is a beautiful little city that is... More

I really enjoyed the food tour. 4th of July was a great time because of the extra energy from the festival. The food was great and unique.
