Great time had by all!
Apr 2021 • Friends
We had a wonderful time on our food tour. Our guide was informative and entertaining, and the food was fabulous. We have been on multiple food tours in several cities, and this was one of the better ones! I highly recommend this tour.

Excellent tour!
This tour was so much fun and so informative. Ned was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the history and food. Larry was a great guide as well- and they were patient with our large group of friends. The food we had was wonderful! A must do if you’re in Roanoke.

Finally did a tour like this after living here for 22 years and it was delightful! Tried restaurants I had not eaten at before and learned about the history of Roanoke in detail I had never heard before! The walk was very pleasant and a nice break in between the food stops. Well worth it and I would recommend to everyone!

Great food and city tour!
Oct 2019 • Couples
Our group of 4 adults took the Roanoke Downtown Food and Cultural tour on a Saturday. Met at 11 am and proceeded to eat and walk our way around town. Our guide, Ami, was very knowledgeable and fun. We ate 7 different restaurants/shops and enjoyed every single one of them. Highly recommend! And the front end team took great care in accommodating my unusual allergy. Thank you!

Wonderful tour!
Oct 2018 • Solo
A great variety of foods and really interesting and well-delivered history of the area. The tour size (our group was 11) worked well for getting around. Walking between the restaurants was nice and gave us a chance to see some of the downtown area. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Roanoke!

We had a great time!
I received a gift card for my birthday and my husband and I had wonderful time taking the Downtown Food and Cultural Tour. Mr. Gilbert was an amazing guide and our appetites were certainly pleasantly satisfied at the end of the tour! Book a tour for any occasion or just a fun day out! We can't wait to come back for another Tour Roanoke experience!

Visiting to Roanoke for the first time
Jul 2018 • Couples
Becky was out guide and we went to 7 places and each place got better and better. History of Roanoke was really interesting and the best part was our tour started in the Hotel Roanoke. This up and downs of the whole town makes your realize how much our history has changed so many times. All of the restaurants were so gracious for having us but the highlight for me was Cedars Lebanese Restaurant. We have never had Lebanese food before and listening to the history of how they got there and then opened the restaurant was mind blowing. Please do try this tour you will not be disappointed
