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

We did this tour on a Friday afternoon while my husband was in Raleigh for work. Our tour guide was welcoming, fun, and knowledgeable not only about the restaurants we visited, but also local history. The food and drinks we sampled were all outstanding and it was so much fun to visit with the proprietors and learn about their journey... More

Did this with a friend who was visiting. The tour guide was nice, good blend of people. Had samples of food at five places . Guide had good history of facts about Raleigh. Will definitely consider a tour in another city. Did require walking and use stairs. A good change of pace.

Visiting from out of town, we did the Raleigh Friday afternoon tour. The selection of restaurants was varied--Latin, Korean fusion, chocolate, pie and cocktails--and all the tastes were delicious. Jeanie was an excellent guide and we gained an understanding of Raleigh's food scene and historic areas. Also enjoyed the opportunity to chat with others on the tour--visitors and locals.
