“Ate plenty of interesting food and learned some Indy history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

I recently took the Mass Ave Taste Indy food tour, which actually was just based in the Mass Ave area, not restricted to the one street. We went to four very different restaurants, each of which served us an ample portion of one or more dishes that they selected for us. All the food was tasty and interesting, and we got plenty to eat. If you're picky about what you eat and don't like trying new things, you might not be thrilled about everything, but I really liked it all and enjoyed getting to try new places.

Most stops included water as the beverage, with the choice to purchase something else from the menu, but one stop served us a flight of local beers to sample. All the restaurants accommodated diet restrictions. Our group of 12 had 2 people with celiac disease who needed gluten-free options and 1 vegetarian, and the staff everywhere was nice about providing alternative dishes to meet their needs. Our guide gave the staff a heads-up when we got to each restaurant.

Our food-tour guide was friendly and engaging but could have used some practice runs through her talking points. Between each restaurant the group made several stops so the guide could tell us some history of a particular place or tell us about the upcoming restaurant. There was up to 10 minutes of walking between restaurants, so you want to be prepared for the weather.

The tour lasted about 3.5 hours, and I thought it was well-priced at $55. Considering how much food we got at each restaurant and how much work they had to do so that 12 people could come eat for 20 minutes, I actually felt kind of bad about not leaving tips at each location. But I liked all the restaurants and plan to go back to them all for future meals, so I guess that's why they participate in the food tour.

“We had a delicious time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2011

We just got back from the Taste Indy Food Tour and it was great! Our tickets were given to us as a gift and I highly recommend this idea. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. Our guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable and even the weather cooperated. Three of the four restaurants will probably get repeat visits from us! It was definitely an afternoon well spent.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2011

TasteIndy put together a customized package for our corporate group of 12. I appreciated their willingness to work within our budget and ability to put together a tour of Mass Ave and Lockerbie for us on short notice! Our guide, Jill, was friendly and helpful - those of us from Indy learned something new and our out of town group members were surprised by the diversity of the city's neighborhoods. Our contacts at TasteIndy put together a great mix of historical venues, neighborhood dives, and contemporary cuisine. I received many compliments and would highly recommend their service as a great way to experience thecity - whether you're new in town or have "been around the block"!

“Food and Fun!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2011

I took my best friend for her 22nd birthday and we had a blast! We discovered eaters we would have otherwise missed on our own. Our group was really fun and left with very happy very full bellies! :) The food was delicious everywhere we went! I cannot wait until the other food tours of Indy get going! :)
