Our family enjoyed the afternoon with tour guide Sam as we explored the city of Raleigh and various eateries. Our group enjoyed 6 different stops serving everything from mushroom flatbread, pesto pasta, wine tasting, grilled hot dogs at Raleigh's most famous spot, meatball sliders, polenta and ice cream. Wow!! There is a good deal of walking, but we needed it... More

My fiance and I are planning to moving to Raleigh in the near future and we came down for a visit. Upon researching things to do in the area, I found Taste Carolina. It was definitely a wonderful way to see the city and go to places not usually on our radar. Would love to go again.

I am so glad to have experience such an amazing tour while visiting Raleigh. Our tour guide went above and beyond answer questions about what do to locally and how to have fun in the area! We visited 5 restaurants/bars, all of them were so accommodating and delicious! I would tell anyone who is visiting or who lives in Raleigh... More

This was my husband and my third Taste Carolina Tour. We've done Raleigh and Durham previously. The shortest way to review Taste Carolina would be to say that we will absolutely continue to do them and would even visit the same cities over again. We love the food, the tour guides, and the other patrons. It always a blast on... More

Great way to try different restaurants. Sam was a wonderful guide keeping the group on track without making us filled rushed. I appreciate the way she paid special attention to the one child with the group. Will visit some of these restaurants again.

What a great surprise! When visiting Raleigh for the first time we were totally unaware of the culinary scene in Raleigh. Now we cannot wait to return for dinner at several places highlighted on the tour.

The tour provides a wonderful introduction to a variety of restaurants and food related stores. Also an opportunity to ride the free city buses. Contrary to the suggestion in their ad do not eat beforehand. This is the first tour I have been on where such a large quantity and food and drink were provided. We were very full by... More

Highly recommend! This was a very fun afternoon getting a chance to explore some restaurants I've never been to before. Some we would definitely go back and visit again, and others, not so much. One of the best parts was the additional recommendations for restaurants that were not part of the tour that our guide, Tony, talked about. Came away... More
