I knew that Asheville had a good food scene but Paddy did a fabulous job of touring us around downtown and punctuating the food intake with some history and commentary. The high points for me were the Coffee Pork at Chorizo and the Orrechiette with sage and pancetta at Strada... oh my. I also really appreciated the pause at Chestnut... More

Asheville Food Tours was a fantastic way to tour around downtown. Great sampling at a varied selection of good restaurants downtown over a three and half hour Wednesday afternoon. We enjoyed stops at seven different establishments though the Chocolate Fetish was to die for! But our guide, Paddy, really made the difference. He was personable and knowledgable (or if he... More

Highly...Highly..Highly recommend Nashville Food Tours! Paddy was a wonderful guide and made it a fun experience! If you don't do this while you are in Asheville, you are missing out on some tasty food and learning about downtown Ashville!

Asheville Food Tours is a 2.5 - 3 hour, walking tour, "progressive dinner" approach to sampling local restaurants, brew-pubs and gourmet food shops. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would participate again to experience other eateries. Our tour included Chorizo, Chocolate Fetish, Foggy Mountain Brew Pub, White Duck Taco, Social Lounge and Tapas Bar at Strada Italiano, Lexington Avenue Brewery (LAB)... More

Paddy, the tour guide, is so personable and really helped us to decide what places we should go to for live music that night and brunch the next morning too. We went to 7 different stops and the food at all of them was... More

Big thanks to Paddy for the amazing food and history tour of Asheville. All the restaurants were prepared and provided a fresh and delicious menu sample item. Would consider doing this tour again when visiting next time, definitely do not miss this tour.
