I went on the Arts District tour and had a wonderful time. This tour is 2pm-5pm so it is a late lunch and early dinner. We hit 6 places, all with unique and different food offerings, all delicious. There is a little bit of history and culture discussed by the tour guide but mostly we learned about the neighborhoods and the restaurants we visited. I was particularly fond of the Greenleaf’s Pool Room stop because we got a demonstration of how to shoot pool. Mama J’s was another highlight since the soul food was delicious and this is a difficult restaurant to get a seat at (frequent 2 hour waits). This is a terrific food tour company.

M., I love that we frequently get to surprise our guests with the pool demo, such a cool "non-food" thing. I'm glad you had a great time and enjoyed all six stops!

We had a fabulous time learning about Churchill, and about small restaurant gems that we would never had uncovered without our food tour. Despite miserable weather, Lindsay kept us entertained and moving, and tasting some of the most delicious and creative treats in Richmond. The six of us has a great time, and will definitely return to these food establishments in the future. We are already planning our next River City Food Tour.

That's so great to hear, J.! Lindsey told me she had a group that simply would not let some bad weather stand in the way of fun - that's our kind of group! See you again soon!

Even though it was a cold, rainy day in Richmond on the day of our tour, our group had a blast. Our guide Lindsey was knowledgeable and upbeat, the perfect guide for a foodie tour. She not only knew facts about the restaurants we visited but also tidbits about the neighborhood Church Hill. This is the perfect outing for couples and families with older children. I would highly recommend for visitors to our beautiful city and locals who want to play tourist in their home town. The food at each restaurant was delicious and served promptly for the group even though a few stops were very busy. Bravo River City Tours! Great idea.

C., I'm so glad that the rain and cold didn't get anyone down! Playing tourist in your own city can be so fun, we love having locals join us!

The food tour was a wildcard as we typically are not into this type of tour. I would highly recommend taking the tour. It takes about 2.5 hours and you get a nice sampling of some of the local restaurants and a little history of the area. It was a great value for what you get. Definitely recommend taking the tour.

A wildcard?! Food tours should be on your must-do list everywhere you go! I'm glad we got a chance to show you around, even if it was outside of your comfort zone.

Even though it was raining and cold, this jaunt through Church Hill was a lot of fun! We visited six different food stops, and tasted a great variety of food. Lindsey, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and friendly. While the cost of this tour may seem a lot, you do get quite a lot for the money. I would definitely try one of the other tours, or even do this one again!
