A wonderful way to be introduced to downtown Roanoke. The variety of restaurants was as amazing as the very interesting history of Roanoke. I will certainly recommend it to others .

“Roanoke: where have you been hiding ?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

This was the perfect introduction to Roanoke and all it has to offer. The tastings were varied and well proportioned. We were given an overview of the city - past, present, and future - and made mental notes of places we want to explore further on our own. Our guide was very informed and entertaining as well. I highly recommend the food tour and all that goes along with it. I've told everyone I know about this food tour and plan to do this again - it was SO MUCH FUN !

“Sunday brunch tour a huge success!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

My husband and I were greeted inside the Roanoke City market building. The building was just opening so it was pretty quiet but within moments our guide Larry and the other tour attendees were introduced and were quickly exchanging where we were all from. We are local but everyone else came from outdide the area. Upstate NY, Greensboro NC, Blacksburg, and a nice young woman from the Phillipines. It was just the right size group...11 people. We dove right in with breakfast quesidillas at Fork in the Market and were seated outside where we could see the passersbys. Not that we were watching as we were to busy eating and listening to Larry share some fun history abiut the historic market. On we moved to enjoy 4 more fantastic spots each with a unique atmosphere. No need to worry about not getting enough to eat, with hearty portions and even better flavors, this was a great way to spend our Sunday. Larry you hit another one out of the park. We cant wait to experience the upcoming craft beer tour!
