Lysa is great. Our first time was in September 2013 with friends, and this past September we booked another when we brought my mother and sisters to Traverse City. She has an ongoing list so you do not have to visit the same places again, though some of them I wouldn't mind. Both years we have really enjoyed the tour,... More

Thanks, Bill! It was such a pleasure to have your group on the tour and quite an honor that you liked it enough to do it TWICE. I'm so glad you enjoyed round 2 of Tasty Morsel tours and hope you enjoyed the rest of your vacation just as much. (And especially glad to see that you made it through... More

I had the pleasure of meeting Lisa this past Saturday and enjoyed the tour. We visited 6 different areas in and near TC. At ‘Light of Day '- We learned from Angelia about tea and the organic gardening that is used to create great antioxidant. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about her gardening and tea growing. Benjamin Twigs was... More

First, let me be clear that it was understandable why the owner had to cancel our tour and we had no problem with that. The problem was the poor business practice of charging our credit card in full two days BEFORE the tour. Then when the tour was cancelled it took a week to refund the credit card. We were... More

We had processed your refund the day before your tour was to have taken place (as soon as we learned about the... More

My husband and I are new to Traverse City and our daughter gave us the 3 hour walking tour as a gift so that we might get to know down town Traverse City better. Lysa did a great job and knew the area well. We went in to stores that I normally would never have visited. Because of this tour... More

My husband and I had a great day walking around downtown Traverse City and sampling the fabulous food the city has to offer. Lysa did a fabulous job of showing where to get delicious food in TC and providing plenty of information on the various stores, restaurants, and brands we encountered. It was very obvious that she has done a... More

We were honeymooning in TC and wanted to explore the area in a way we never had before. Lysa knew many odd, quirky facts about the area and places we visited. She was very polite and made it a point to ask us if we wanted to visit anymore sites before wrapping up our walking tour. She always kept the... More

We went in February and did the walking tour of Front Street. Lysa was friendly and knowledgible. I grew up not to far from the Traverse City area, and visited from time to time when I was a kid, but there were a lot of places that I would probably have never found if it wasn't for this tour. Some... More

Lisa gave us a wonderful tour of Front St. and beyond. We visited 6 businesses and sampled a different wonderful food or beverage each one. The cost of the tour covered all the samples. We also received an insulated bag. Lisa was very informative, professional and personable, with a good clear speaking voice. She is very familiar with the local... More

Of course, at least LIKING food helps! Lysa was great, personable and knowledgeable without being condescending. The shop owners were so helpful, answering my husband's dozens of questions (He is an engineer and always wants to know more). In the stores where the owners were a bit too busy to talk to us, Lysa knows as much or more than... More
