I never knew that tasting tours existed here in Raleigh! We are locals and never get downtown so this was a great way to sample restaurants, desserts, bars. Neesey was our tour guide and she was very energetic! Checked out about 5 different places and would definitely go back to a few of them!

Great way to start the weekend ! The tour is a great introduction to the city and the stops were so different that it was even more interesting than what we had expected. My husband and I live in Raleigh and frequent downtown however we still learned a little history and a couple tidbits during the tour. All of the... More

My husband and I have been in the triangle for two years, and we thought we'd been to all of the great downtown restaurants. We were wrong--this tour brought us to new spots and hidden gems. The restaurant/bar representatives were friendly and informative, and our guide did a great job organizing the flow of the evening. We were very happy... More

We took the Raleigh tasting tour on April 25th with some friends who were visiting from NY. We loved the experience. Our guide, Tony, did a great job sharing some historic facts about the area and about some of the local restaurants. You could tell Tony loved his job and had a excellent rapport with the chefs/owners at each of... More

We decided to do this tour last minute. Good decision. We got to sample some great local restaurants, a cocktail bar and bakery. For the places we went and the food we got, which at all but the bakery included an alcoholic beverage if you chose, it was a great value. I was expecting to learn just a little more... More

I took the Raleigh Friday Afternoon Tasting Tour and it was great! I'd recommend it to couples and adults who are in the area. It was a neat way to get the culinary highlights of downtown Raleigh, as well as learn some of the historic highlights that can be found there. I can't wait to go back and visit some... More

I looked up this tour years ago and never managed to make it a priority to do. Wow, was that a mistake! This was a great tour filled with history and information about Raleigh and its local restaurants. I loved that the restaurants and bars that we visited we're all locally owned and operated. Each restaurant gave a generous serving... More

I recently went on the Raleigh night cocktail/food tour with my wife and another couple. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun to hang out with. Every establishment we went to was already prepared and they had a table waiting for us. The food and cocktails were excellent! I thought the prices were fair and everything was well done. I...

Myself and three of my friends decided to visit Raleigh and take the tour because we don't know the area very well. This tour is idea to find out some places to go and get a sample of a little bit of everything. We would have never seen these places driving through town. So if you don't mind a little... More
