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

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
