Visiting on a different day proved just as tasty and got to eat at some more of Asheville's best restaurants. Paddy did an amazing job, and I feel sure that we will do this again when we have family visiting town.

Best way to get in so many great restaurants in one afternoon. Paddy was very easy to talk to, he answered all of our additional historical questions about Asheville, and provided a great atmosphere for... More

I've been somewhat remiss, that I haven't written this sooner. My wife and I completed this tour with Paddy back in November. Simply put, we had a wonderful afternoon with Paddy and approximately 10 other people. We made 6 stops at area restaurants presenting a wide variety of food specialties. The food was fantastic and Paddy was a wonderful tour... More

A visit to Asheville wouldn't be complete without this tour.....Asheville has an Unchained Movement....trying to keep chain restaurants out of city. The tour was fun and informative, Paddy is very knowledgeable and picked out some AMAZING restaurants. Be sure to come hungry, you'll have a blast!!!! If you do any tour PICK THIS ONE!!!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our food tour with Paddy. It was something different and he not only gave us a"taste of Asheville" but entertained us with the history and legends as well.
