My wife and I recently discovered the Tastes of Tidewater Tours via word of mouth and with more research we discovered that they do way more than just wine tours. This husband and wife team are well established Virginian locals of several generations and they have a huge passion for sharing the vast culture dinning experience Hampton Roads but also taking you back into history to a scene setting of our founding fathers to a more current shipping days of the James River. I have live in Virginia for lets just say a long time now and I consider myself a local and up to date good local food and drink. Well that was until I had the pleasure of a tour with Rex and Lisa. They blew my mind with all the little mom and pop dinners and eateries I didn't know about. All the local breweries and wineries that are in the area are astounding. The best part about all the food and drinking places is that is locally grown and all natural. Something about that just hits home with me and makes me feel good. Even if it cost me a few more cents out of my pocket to buy from the local farmer than the big chain store I feel better knowing it's staying in the community and I also know how fresh it really is. Now that I wrap this up I really did save the best for last. The best part of my experience with Rex, Lisa, and Taste of Tidewater tours was just that. It was them. They were an absolute joy to be around and always went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. When you describe to friends and family members what and neighbor or a hometown where you grew up is like or was like. I picture growing up right next to Rex and Lisa in the Hampton roads area eating and drinking great food enjoying the local scene. I would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone and plan on taking a few more of their tours in the future.

Lisa and Rex provide an educational, relaxing and fun way to spend an afternoon downing a variety of Virginia oysters well paired with wine and beer. We enjoyed raw, baked, broiled and fried beauties from different waters of Virginia served in three great venues. Personal relationships were established with an owner, a general manager and a chef for future dining pleasure. Twelve family members or friends can reserve the entire bus which is also clean and comfortable. For the love of oysters...GO!

I took the December walking tour of the ViBe creative district. Both locals and visitors will find it a great way to sightsee and enjoy the art and culinary spots along with the history of the ViBe in Virginia Beach. We laughed as we walked along the streets viewing the artfully done Maser stage and the colorful murals in the 18th Street parklett. Our eats from Beach Bully, Craft Burger, Esoteric and Crocs were delightful. It was just enough time to see the ViBe. Rex and Lisa were most gracious.I highly recommend this fun afternoon for a Spring or Summer adventure.

Rex was very pleasant and a great tour guide. There were six of us in our group and one other couple and we all had a great time sharing the shuttle. I'm not much of a craft beer lover (husband is) but I found something I really enjoyed at each of the three breweries we visited. My favorite was Wasserhund because of the more pub atmosphere. We had a great time and visited breweries we were not even aware of in Virginia Beach!

Taste Virginia Tours is one of the best ways to spend a day with friendly, knowledgeable guides touring Virginia. I highly recommend them for business, friend, and family retreats and exploring the food, wine, and craft beer in the area.

It was refreshing and energizing to find new areas to eat and drink at in a city we are familiar with. It was pleasant and interesting to learn about the different brewing methods and histories of the breweries and their brews.

I highly recommend Taste of Virginia if you are new to area or are stuck in a rut and want a fresh and delicious perspective!

Went to 3 local breweries. Rex was a great tour guide. He started out by explaining the science behind brewing, and then at each location he reiterated how they got the particular flavors based on how the beer was produced. Very interesting. I enjoyed it very much. The only downside was that I was told the pickup location would be in the beachfront area but it turned out to be miles away. I don't know if it was because I was the only tourist on the tour (everyone else was local). I had to take an Uber, when I thought I could walk. Minor inconvenience but something to think about when booking.
