Had an awesome time on the taste of Williamsburg Tour! I have lived in the area for over 8 years and I never knew there were such great places in the area! Had a variety of food items, was super informative, with a fun group of people. Amazing experience!

I have taken numerous food tours, so I was excited to see one in Colonial Williamsburg. Bad idea. For starters, this is a tour of the newer section (tourist traps and college bars) and not the Colonial portion. Setting that aside, it was still a disaster. Our guide started the tour off by saying that this was her first tour,... More

This tour has so much potential. The tour guide Marc was wonderful and he was the reason that we stayed on the tour. We were a small group, and it didn't seem like the restaurants were expecting us. When we got there, there wasn't any interaction with the chefs or managers as would be expected. Only three of the stops... More

This company never showed up on the date, time, and place shown. I called numerous times, but no one answered the phone. I finally contacted them through there website which is an email to them. Mysteriously someone contacted me after that, but by now it was 45 minutes past our start time. This is a very shady operation. The addresses... More

This man has lied. The tour guide did not say she would refund them, and she did not "mess up". She was at the correct place at the correct time. This customer was not. This customer missed their tour and asked their tour guide to wait two hours to start, because they were eating lunch. Our tour guide called them... More

After numerous holiday visits to Colonial Williamsburg we wanted to change it up a bit. The "Taste of Williamsburg" foodie tour hit the spot. From delectable cheeses, exotic spices and teas, special brews, to reuben spring rolls and a cheesy macaroni we were not dissapointed. Highly recommend spending a few hours with Mark, our highly entertaining and informative guide!

It gets harder to find fun new things to do as you get older. This was a great experience and I went back for two more. The chefs were entertaining and passionate about their presentation. Plus the food was good.

From directions that were emailed, it is hard to determine meeting location to start tour. You are escorted to 3 stores to browse & shop and 3 restaurants to obtain small portions of food. You can shop in the 3 stores on your own time without paying $62 a person. The tour guide was quiet and not very informative.

This was our fifth food tour this vacation so we had come to expect a great mix of local history and cuisine. This had very little of either. We started off bad when the email confirmation with the meeting site containing the wrong address. When we tried contacting the company we had to leave a message. We called back and... More
