We took the food tour that started at the Majestic Grille with dessert and went from there. We were the only two on the tour and received personal attention from Lance. He had great knowledge about Memphis in general and about the specialty foods we ate. We ended the tour with barely enough room left to taste the dish, but... More

Carol took my mom and I on the Tastin' 'Round Town Tour, which included restaurants on Beale Street and off of Beale Street. We tried BBQ, desserts, hamburgers, southern cooking and so muc more. Everywhere that Carol took us - the food was fabulous and it gave us a true taste of the different places to eat in Downtown Memphis.... More

We had a wonderful afternoon learning about the city and tasting great food, really like the diverse food choices Debbie our guide was very knowledgeable and fun to talk with. She loves the city and knows it well. We had reservations for dinner that evening but we were so full by the end of the tour we canceled our reservations.... More

Four in our party had a wonderful afternoon with Debbie. She was delightful, knowlegable and a perfect food guide. We did the tour on the afternoon of our arrival, what a great welcome and introductions to Memphis food. She gave us recommendations for other meals, all of which were spot on. Debbie helped to make our Memphis trip even better.

Unbeknownst to us, my wife and I were the only ones booked for that particular BBQ tour. Lance met us in the hotel lobby and gave us a VERY personal tour, chauffeuring us around in his own Jaguar. What a treat!!! Lance was personable, very knowledgeable, and certainly knows all the right places to go to. We got to chat... More

We enjoyed our Memphis BBQ tastin' with Lance. As others have said, don't eat before the tour. You will get to experience different kinds of BBQ. Lance was great with explaining the differences and sharing the history of Memphis. Loved going to a couple of small places away from Beale Street. Would highly recommend!

Debbie was very well inforned about the history of the city, Beale Street, and all the restaurants we visited. Her background in the food industry also provided texture and support for her opinions about the food and chefs in Memphis. Debbie is pleasantly talkative, making the hours we spent together very enjoyable. There was plenty of food, more than we... More

We had already sampled lots of BBQ, so chose this tour instead of the BBQ one. Debbie was our tour guide - she had an encyclopedic knowledge of many aspects of Memphis - history, the music scene, tourist spots, as well as restaurants and food. For 3 hours, we walked around the downtown area, stopping at several local restaurants to... More

We were three couples traveling together and are kind of foodies. Loved the tour and loved the history both of BBQ and Memphis that Lance provided. We were warned not to eat lunch before the tour, but we probably should not have had breakfast or eaten the day before, also. A lot of food and seven different kinds of BBQ... More

What a great time we had walking and van traveling to some really excellent BBQ destinations around Memphis. Lance gives an ongoing narrative of what makes great BBQ and how regions differ. He also has a wealth of historic Memphis knowledge to share. All of us on this tour were offered more than we could possibly eat and came away... More
