We have done 2 corporate tours with Taste Carolina through Durham. They are easy to coordinate with and we have had great experiences on both tours. The stops / food have been excellent and our guides have been interesting and informative.

Absolutely the best way to entertain visiting friends and family. Elizabeth was so knowledgeable about food and the history in the area. Her personality was so welcoming and inviting that all of us on the tour felt comfortable and became fast friends. We got to try a lot of resturants that otherwise would have cost a lot more to visit... More

The tour was shorter than expected and the gourmet food was like having tapas. I would not take another tour with group.
