A wonderful way to be introduced to downtown Roanoke. The variety of restaurants was as amazing as the very interesting history of Roanoke. I will certainly recommend it to others .

This was the perfect introduction to Roanoke and all it has to offer. The tastings were varied and well proportioned. We were given an overview of the city - past, present, and future - and made mental notes of places we want to explore further on our own. Our guide was very informed and entertaining as well. I highly recommend... More

We had so much fun on the Roanoke Food Tours Sunday Brunch Tour. The welcome was great. The food and drinks were varied and so good and we made some new friends on the way. It's a great way to get to know Roanoke - whether you're visiting or have lived here your whole life. Check it out!

My husband and I were greeted inside the Roanoke City market building. The building was just opening so it was pretty quiet but within moments our guide Larry and the other tour attendees were introduced and were quickly exchanging where we were all from. We are local but everyone else came from outdide the area. Upstate NY, Greensboro NC, Blacksburg,... More

Just wanted to share that they've now added a Sunday Brunch Tour and it was really fun, not to mention delicious. Such a nice selection of fresh, tasty and mostly locally sourced food and drink items. This is a great way to spend the day whether you live here or are just visiting. It's also really nice getting to meet... More

What a great way to introduce our town to newcomers (and old hands like me). 3 hours of food, fun and interesting history of Roanoke. Each of the restaurants had their own special food and stories and in between you get even more background on our fair city. Enjoyed every minute.

We so love hearing from Roanoker's who bring out of town guests on the tour. We love showing off the Magic City to guests too. Thanks for taking time to submit your review. More

Great food, great guide, great information. My only suggestion would be, we're little piglets, and we think we could've eaten a whole meat pie, a whole croissant (or do pain au chocolat!) and a whole cheesy and a totally full little bowl of shrimp and grits. Like I said -- we LOVE LOVE LOVE food! Photos attached.

A must if you are visiting Roanoke. This is an excellent tour. Our tour guide was very well educated in terms of the food and historical elements of the area. My six year old daughter enjoyed all of the tasting. The Lebanese Resturant was my favorite. I highly recommend this food tour!
