Great way to spend an afternoon!

We had a great time on our afternoon tour and even got in last minute because of a cancellation. Paddy was full of great information and entertaining as well!

We read about this tour on Tripadvisor and with it being our first visit to Asheville we thought it a perfect way to combine sightseeing and sampling the cuisine Asheville had to offer. Paddie was our guide and did a terrific job of guiding his small clan around town, explaining the highlights and providing an overview of the restaurants and... More

Overall the food tour was great! However, it was four hours long which was a bit much. The selection of food items was good and I would do it again.

This was my first food tour, (my daughters idea) and it was fantastic. Paddy the guide is a wealth of knowledge and does a great job of being a guide and host. The food at the restaurants was great and is well worth the money. Thanks Paddy, Mike and Jessica.

I wanted to experience as many Asheville restaurants as possible during my trip, so I decided to sign up for an Asheville Food Tour. Our tour guide, Paddy was personable and started our excursion on time. Since I was traveling alone, I was a bit worried that I would end up having to sit at a table alone, while all... More

This was our first visit to Asheville and what a great way to get oriented with the city! Paddy was a great host and planned a great afternoon for our group. We went to 7 places, 3 of which were on our list to try while we were visiting Asheville anyway. Each of the locations were ready for us and... More

We have been to Asheville several times, but have never been on the food tour. I would recommend booking ahead and going sooner than later on your visit. Paddy is a great guide and really pays attention to the dietary needs of his guest. The tour last around 2 1/2 to 3 hours, but the time flys. Really fun way... More

Paddy did an exceptional job of organizing a tour for a group of 15 from Michigan!! He shared great stories and history of the area and his restaurant choices were great. He was very accommodating with the senior citizens in our group as well. Fun stuff for all ages!!!

I highly recommend this food tour! Paddy was an amazing tour guide; it's obvious that he loves his town and is eager to tell the history of Asheville. The food was amazing, and the tour enhanced our visit to this area immensely! It was also fun interacting with the other participants on the tour.

The tour and trip to Asheville were a b'day gift to my girlfriend. Everything about the tour was awesome. Easy-to-find spot to start the tour. The weather was perfect, but our tour guide Paddy had a backpack full of umbrellas in case we needed them. He was great - very knowledgeable about the city's history, pointing out landmarks and offering... More
