During the OBX Taste of the Beach Weekend, three of us signed up to attend the "Cooking" class named above. The description of the event looked fun, hands-on cooking that included an appetizer, an entrée and a dessert, each paired with wines. This was one of the best events EVER! We were picked up by Terry Bell and chauffeured to... More

We had the opportunity to go on 2 Outer Banks Restaurant tours on our vacation this past August. We went on the Kitty Hawk tour first, and enjoyed it so much that we booked the Duck Walking Tour that day! Our guide (and owner) Terry was very personable and knowledgeable about the businesses that we visited. We were able to... More

I was very excited to take this tour with my family but ended the afternoon incredibly disappointed. The first stop was at a waterfront cantina where we were served a sliver of mediocre quesadilla and a virgin (not meant to be) daquiri. Our next stop was Tommy's Market where they have free samples for EVERYONE on Tuesdays. Why did we... More

I am sorry you were disappointed in the Duck Walking Tour. I am not sure what you expected, but this tour, as well as all the tours, is described in detail on the website. Visitors can certainly go to any of the stops on any of the tours on their own without going on the tour. Tommy's Market does tastings... More

Tour was lead by a Terry who had the personality of a brick. Knew little if anything about the restaurants, grocery store we visited. From 2-4 the... More

Last year we went on the Kitty Hawk tour and LOVED it. This year we wanted to try a new area. We were disappointed with this tour. The first stop is a very nice grocery store but they offer samples on Tuesday already, so why do I need to be on the tour to stop here? The second and third... More

We were on Monday's Restaurant tour in the Kitty Hawk area. At first I thought the price was a bit high for something like this, but it was well worth it! We had several wine tastings & other (full size) drinks and some amazing tappas sized samplings of their foods. We went away from this having sampled enough, we did... More

We took the Corolla Restaurant Tour. I enjoyed it very much! I wanted to try food that I had never eaten before on this vacation, and this was the perfect way to do it! My husband, who is not a wine drinker, actually drank all of the wine pairings along the way. He said it was very good. I was... More

We took the Kitty Hawk tour last year & were excited to do the Duck Tour this year. The first stop at a grocery store seemed to much like a sales pitch to be enjoyable. The stops at restaurants were nice. At the end we were left a mile away from where we parked. We had to walk back in... More

This is a great way to spend an afternoon. The food and drinks were excellent. We have been coming to OBX for 20+ years. The Kitty Hawk tour is well designed and we were pleasantly surprised by the choices available. We are always on the lookout for worthwhile restaurants and drink spots that are off the beaten path.
