Owner description: No tours will be offered for the 2017 tour season. Please check back in late 2017 for information on 2018 season tours. A fun walking food tasting tour! This culinary adventure is a treat for all the senses. Along the way are stops at restaurants where you will taste the foods of the area's best and most popular restaurants. From the finest dining in town to the hidden gems, you will get a multi-sensory view of the culture and local flavor. It's a lovely stroll with a side dish of history, a dash of culture and a taste of the Bluegrass.

Last year we took the Downtown/Saturday tour so this year we tried the Sunday tour. Again, we were delighted with the samplings, history lesson, and stroll through the "hopping" Jefferson Street area. Laura is such a delightful guide. On the hot day, she treated all attendees to a sample of local cupcakes and ice cream she had carried in a cooler! What a doll! With the spring Keeneland meet coming up, take a break from the track and visit with Laura. She will lead you to the best samplings of downtown Lexington's restaurants and give you an insightful glimpse into Lexington's history.

My wife and I took a little weekend getaway to Lexington. This tour was one of our highlight activities. We found the quality, amount, and variety of food to be better than expected. The tour guide was friendly and provided lots of interesting information about the history of Lexington in general, and the culinary scene in particular. My wife is a somewhat picky eater, but she did fine on this tour. Highly recommend.

I wanted to attend this tour for a while and it definitely exceeded expectations! Laura did a great job of combining history of Lexington with interesting anecdotes of the restaurants. We visited a nice mix of restaurants and enjoyed a delicious variety of food. I love finding new and local restaurants and the tour was an unforgettable and wonderful experience!

This tour is a great way to explore downtown Lexington and sample a range of restaurants. Laura is a great guide and provided interesting insights not only about the restaurants but also about Lexington. The food was great and it was fun to meet the chefs. Very worthwhile for visitors and Lexington residents as well.

My husband and I were looking for something fun and different to do during the weekend. This tour truly fit the experience we were searching for. Laura is personable and knowledgeable about the history of Lexington and the food of the local area. During the tour we met local chefs, tried the food in the local restaurants and experienced Lexington in a whole new light. The tour offers something for everyone. Every corner held a new delight and experience. Laura and our group were warmly greeted by all the venues we visited and we were treated liked honored guests. The food was amazing, the history is fun, Laura is wonderful, and we learned so much about the history in our own back yards. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
