This tour is a 'must do' when in Memphis. Lance led our BBQ tasting tour. He was a wealth of knowledge about the city, it's history and the Memphis BBQ. His enthusiasm and love of Memphis was part of the reason we had such a great time. I could do it all again and cannot recommend this highly enough. You... More

We had so much fun on this tour! Not only did we learn a ton about Memphis BBQ but Lance was a fabulous historian - providing us with the history of Memphis from the Civil War to present day Memphis. I would highly recommend it - one of the best things we did while in Memphis! I'm still full.

We visited 6 places, all were a good experience. We were able to meet some interesting and fine people on our tour. we had... More

Our guide, Deb, for this, most enjoyable, 3+ hour tour was very knowledgable on the local cuisine, history of the area and ALL things culinary. We visited 6 different locations within easy walking distance and everything went smoothly at each. The other couple on the tour with us were most pleasant, interesting and added significantly to a wonderful afternoon.

What a fabulous day! I am so glad we decided to go on the downtown tour. Our guide, Debbie, was an awesome historian and knew all of the best places to eat and drink. She had stories for every restaurant, store, and building on Beale st. The excellent reviews for this tour are correct- it is definitely one that you... More
