I took the Roanoke Food Tour last Friday with the knowledgeable Becky and truly learned a lot about my hometown. I think most people would agree that we don't always take the opportunity to be a tourist in our hometown, so this was extra cool for me. I loved the food, loved the company, and would absolutely do it again... More

The guides talked the entire time giving us interesting facts about Roanoke. I would highly recommend this tour to any one visiting the city or anyone living here for any length of time. I have been here since 1975 and learned more history on Sunday than I learned in 40 years. History came alive!

My sister and I took a day trip to Roanoke, and started our day with the tour. This was an excellent way to experience the wonderful city of Roanoke. We visited 7 restaurants with a wide variety of tastings. We enjoyed the walk and beautiful day along with our friendly group of 11. Amellia was our tour guide and was... More

Totally enjoyed the glimpse of Roanoke's past and the taste of Roanoke's present in our seven stops downtown on Friday, March 13! Becky delivered a chatty narrative, as our group tasted delicious specialties! I've lived in the area for ages, but still learned quite a bit on the Historic Downtown Cultural and Food Tour! A worthwhile "special event" for anyone!

Having friends who just moved down to the area, I was in town visiting and we all decided to go on the Food and Culture tour that Roanoke Food Tours offers. It was such a wonderful way to explore Roanoke, learn of the city's history and the present, as well as the experience the restaurants that downtown has to offer.... More

Amelia was our tour guide and she was FANTASTIC!! The peanut soup at Hotel Roanoke is something I have always wanted to try. It did not disappoint! The shrimp and grits were my favorite dish I tried. (I don't like grits!) I have lived in Roanoke my whole life and learned more about the town on this tour than I... More
