Our family visited Knoxville last summer and the Knoxville Food Tour would up a highlight of our trip. Paula, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable about Knoxville's history and downtown restaurants. Her selections provided excellent food choices and fun interactions with each locations staff.

I highlight recommend this tour for anyone looking to experience local flavor.

My mom and I decided to do this for my birthday this year and had a great time. Being new to the Knoxville area we are still learning and discovering things. Not only was the food delicious where we went, but we also got some history of downtown which was informative and interesting. If you are looking for something fun to do, this is definitely worth doing!
