You get to go to 5 different restaurants and get food and drinks at all. It was plenty of food to be a meal and it was fun and the guide had a lot of historical information. I will probably do it again as the restaurants they go to change.

Enjoyed our mini history lesson as we walked the streets of Raleigh. The tour was well organized. We hit a diverse range of restaurants and loved the Raleigh Wine Shop. At $55 for an afternoon 3 1/2 hour tour -- we thought it was a great value. Portion sizes were more than adequate. Wear comfy shoes! We covered a lot... More

A friend and I had the pleasure of experiencing this tour. The cost $65 and included all tastings, restaurant gratuities, a guided tour of the area. With the help of our lovely tour guide Billy, she took us on a culinary and historical journey of downtown Raleigh. She was full of life and it was obvious that she enjoyed giving... More

We had a great day with Taste of Carolina during the Raleigh tour. We visit 5 restaurants, a wine store, and a cupcake shop. We got plenty to each and all the restaurants were waiting for us and very accommodating. It was very warm out and they had bottled water to hand out at the beginning of the tour. If... More

I took this tour with a Meetup group and had a great time! Everything, from start to finish, was very well organized. We visited 5 restaurants/bars and was greeted well by each one. There was no wasted time during or between each restaurant stop. The food and drinks were very good and something new to me(which is what I was... More

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
