Did the 11:00 am Chapel Hill/Carrboro tour with a group of girlfriends. It made for a fun day and left us with ideas where we wanted to return. Personally, I have become a big fan of the Carrboro Farmer's Market and Neal's Deli. Our tour guide was entertaining and the folks we met at the shops/restaurants were friendly and passionate...

We had 3 generations of family in town for graduation, and everyone enjoyed this tour. We did the Chapel Hill tour that included the farmer's market, and every stop was fantastic. One person in the group was unable to walk between the stops, but we were easily able to drive to each stop and get her close enough so she... More

She even had us pop our head into a few "off tour" locations that she is a fans of. Highly recommended tour and this is from a couple... More

My husband and I have done food tours in NYC, Austin and Pittsburgh, and this we had the most food on this one!! Tour ran long --... More

My son and DIL treated us to the Chapel Hill'/Carrboro tour this weekend. Weather was a little chilly but we had such a great time. Food was wonderful and the owners of all of the places we visited were so gracious. Our guide Ashley was a lot of fun and a wealth of information. I would recommend doing any of... More

Our group had a private tour with Cat of 6 establishments in Chapel Hill and Carrboro on a Thursday afternoon. We had a wonderful time, it was great to spend time with friends doing something we all like to do, enjoying good food. I had never been to 4 of the 6 establishments we visited, and I definitely would go... More

We went on the Chapel Hill, Carborro food tour and had Cat as our guide! She was so professional but also so fun to spend an afternoon with. It was clear that she was very in-the-know on the food scene in the area. The food we tasted was great, we learned so much, and had such a pleasant experience. I... More

This experience exceeded expectations. Kat provided a good pace, good tastes, and a lot of local info and color. Although we've lived in the area for 10 years, we had not dined at these places. That changed quickly, which means the tour is good for the merchants as well as the tasters. We look forward to trying this in some... More

Our tour guide, Kat, was perfect! She was friendly, relaxed, informative and kept us all on schedule (as best as she could!) The Farmers Market and the restaurants were a nice selection. Even though I've lived in Chapel Hill 40 years I learned a lot and was fortunate enough to get to try out several restaurants I've wanted to try... More
