I was in Chapel Hill on business and a local member of our group put together a Taste Carolina tour for us. Being a Friday night we had to start early (4pm) but that also allowed us to take over restaurants without upsetting their workday too much. Kat was our guide and did a fantastic job of herding us around... More

This is my first tripadvisor review, although I use its reviews often! Taste Carolina motivated me to start returning the favor. I just took my third tour with them last weekend. I had been putting off the Chapel Hill/Carrboro tour because I live here and I was sure I had covered all the foodie bases. Wrong! Lesley introduced me to... More

my wife and I just attended our third Taste of Carolina tour and it was just as good or better than the first two! You will be introduced to awesome dining spots, meet new people, and learn a lot along the way. We routinely give these as gifts! Highly recommended!

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the Taste Carolina tour in Chapel Hill/Carrboro with Lesley. We went on the 3:00 tour, which lasted around 3 hours. We visited 6 restaurants. From homemade pastrami on rye (with sangria!) to Indian to Greek to a local beer brew sampling, and more! Everything was delicious and fresh. Very ample portions (come hungry!!) The... More

The most fun, interesting, and awesomely delicious three hour tour. So enjoyed this adventure! We had a beautiful spring Saturday afternoon & a wonderful, fun tour guide, Cat. The restaurants were all great and varied, with ample, delicious sampling. Each stop was welcoming & informative. Absolutely recommend this tour!

My husband and I took the Taste Carolina Chapel Hill/Carrboro Dinner and Drinks Tour. We were lucky to have Lesley as our tour guide, and a wonderful group of people to do the tour with. We visited 6 places - including Acme restaurant, Vimala's Indian restaurant, Kipos Greek restaurant (my favorite) and Al's Burger Shack (my husband's favorite), as well... More

We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 teen kids). We had a fun late afternoon with Cat on the Carboro/Chapel Hill tour. She was fun and informative. The food was fantastic and filling. Definitely places we would not have tried on our own. Thanks for adding a special tour for our family. Loved the coffee lesson at... More

My wife and I wanted to get to know the Carrboro/Chapel Hill area of North Carolina, and this eating/drinking/history tour seemed a good way to begin. We couldn't be more pleased that we did. Our guides, Jessica and Cat(herine) were knowledgeable and delightful hosts who kept everything in tune as we moved from place to place. The food and drink... More

We've foregone buying presents for family members now for two years -everyone much prefers experiential gifts... And for the 2nd year in a row, Taste Carolina was INCREDIBLE. Our tour guide, Adrienne, introduced us to flavors and restaurants that I didn't even know existed in Chapel Hill/Carrboro. What a selection, from French/American to Indian to Southern Kitchen, and from beer... More

My husband and I took the Taste of Carolina tour in Carrboro and it was outstanding! The food was great; talking to the restaurant owners was very informative and interesting; and the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. I have multiple food sensitivities and quite honestly, I was wondering what I would eat. But every place made accommodations for me.... More
