This was such a fun tour. Patti is not only the tour guide but also the operations manager. He schedules all the restaurants as they rotate depending on the day and season. Parking is very difficult downtown so put aside plenty of time to park and get to the meeting spot. We visited 8 eating destinations. We had a private... More

Our first food tour. The choice of restaurants was fantastic. Our guide did a great job of telling us all about the history of Asheville as we walked around. We will be back as they vary the locations every day. You will be full and happy at the end!

This was my first ever food tour, and I'm glad I decided to give it a try. Everyone was friendly at every restaurant, and the food was amazing! Our guide, Patty did a wonderful job. He taught us some very interesting things about the city, especially the architecture downtown. I would recommend this to anyone who loves food and wants... More

This was the first food tour that I and my 11 year old granddaughter have taken. Patty was a great tour guide, he shared a lot of history along the way. Great variety of food from several different restaurants, beer & wine at some. Our favorite was the honey tasting.

Loved this tour, it was an excellent mix of food, drink, history and some (bad as admitted by the guide) comedy. This is a great way to introduce yourself to downtown Asheville. At the end of the tour you get a "passport" which gives you discounts at the participating shops and restaurants. The food was amazing!

Food and wine tour throughout downtown Asheville. Guide was friendly and our group was somewhat large. I felt a little cheated in that the guide didn't spend more time talking about the area. He focused more on the restaurants themselves.

I've never taken a food tour before and was concerned as my husband has dietary restrictions. The booking process was easy and allowed for indicating the dietary concerns we had. At one restaurant the food sampling contained an item I neglected to list and Paddy, the tour guide, went above board to obtain an acceptable food item. All the restaurants... More
