We have taken many food tours in our travels and thought the guide Paddy was very nice but wished he would've talked more throughout the tour and done introductions to see where everyone was from and their names but didn't get that opportunity. We only got about 5 minutes of Asheville history in the town square, but it is a... More

We ate at 8 different excellent restaurants. All of them were local, had fresh local ingredients, and were excellent. Each was paired with a different alcoholic beverage. We went back to 3 of the places to drink or eat after the tour was over!

I have done food tours in NYC, San Francisco, Seattle, LA, Charleston and Asheville's is by far the best food!!! It focuses on local restaurants- no chains- while walking around the most gorgeous city around! There is lots of food and limited talk, but that's okay. It could improve the history dimension a bit, but it is worth the money... More

Never having done a food tour before,I had limited expectations. This tour was totally awesome. We visited several restaurants and specialty food shops. Not only was the food and drinks superb but our guide was very personable and eager to share his knowledge of Asheville with us. Paddy added the extra touch to make the tour more memorable. I highly... More

Really enjoyed this food tour in Asheville. We went to 7 yummy tasting locations all within walking distance. What a great way to sight see and eat great food, all in an afternoon. We learned about a variety of restaurants and the food they pride themselves in serving. We would have never been able to try all of these established... More

Based off Trip Advisor recommendations I purchased tickets for the Food Tour Asheville for myself and boyfriend while on a much needed vacation. We arrived at the arcade and was promptly greeted by Patrick, our host. In all, we had approximately 18 in our group. While walking through downtown Asheville, Patrick pointed out its unique history and architecture. We stopped... More

Touring Asheville on foot with a guide and eating delicious food on the way. What more could you ask for! Our guide, Paddy, was friendly and knowledgeable. He took us to seven different restaurants where we were served food and in some cases drinks. Each stop offered something different and every restaurant was ready for us when we arrived. The...

Well organized. Fun. Filling and delicious. Great host who gives you lots of fun factoids about Asheville as you and the group walk from place to place. Great way to get the "lay of the land" food wise. You get a card afterwards for discounts. Fascinating background info from the owners too. I can't say enough about this fun afternoon.... More

We had a fantastic time on the Asheville food tour with our group! It was a great way to see the city and try lots of different cuisines. We ate at several spots that we probably would never have tried on our own. Our tour guide was really interesting and fun as well. Warning - you will be FULL when... More

We have been to Asheville numerous times but have never done a food tour before. We will do this every time we come back! We walked to 7-8 restaurants. Tables were reserved for us and the portions were generous. The food (and chocolate and local beer) was great and it was so fun to meet the owners/managers and hear their... More
