Our food tour was a great way to get to know Raleigh, not just the restaurants but also the downtown area. Sam was a great guide and also pointed out some other restaurants we didn't visit. The food was excellent, particularly at Centro and lucettegrace.

We had a fabulous time sampling food and drinks from five different downtown Raleigh restaurants and bars. Susan did a wonderful job with the walking tour. The food and drink visits were spaced out perfectly and we learned a lot about the different restaurants. Now I want to do the Durham tour!

Sam, our tour guide, was great. She had many new bits about the city and restaurants I didn't know. The restaurant selections were great, and lots of my favorites! The portions were always awesome! I was VERY full by the end of the tour! 7/7 would do again.

Joined the Speakeasy Cocktail tour on a Saturday evening - the weather was perfect and our guide Sam, was AWESOME. We had a great group of fun loving people out to enjoy some cocktails downtown Raleigh. Learned some history, got great advice for things to do the area and best of all had a ball trying some fun new cocktails.

This was the perfect thing for our spirited group of cooking club ladies.We got to taste enough food for dinner and we got to interact with chefs and key personel. Our tour guide Sam was friendly, very knowledgeable and did a great job keeping the tour on time and organized. I would highly recommend! +
