I have done many food tours on both the west and east coast and this was God honest truth one of my favorites. What people don't realize, is that there are many parts to a food tour that is essential. A great guide...check with Kristal. She was so nice, knowledgeable and made the tour enjoyable every moment. Another essential part of a great tour are the restaurants that are chosen. Not just because of the food, but the owners/staff/environment. This tour had owners explaining their passion, their process, etc. and even chefs coming out to give great insight of the food we were eating. I could make this review extremely long just because the level of my satisfaction, but I will end it by saying, that I brought 3 of my sister in laws to celebrate Mother's Day and none of them had ever done a food tour and they haven't stopped thanking me and sharing with their friends. They didn't want it to stop! Thank you again Kristal!

Raheem was an excellent well informed guide with infectious humor and stories to complement our food choices. The food stops are all outstanding and delicious. Definitely bring your appetite and prepare your taste buds to be amazed. This is a must tour.

It was a good experience. The food was varied and delicious. Anna, our guide was very informative. Personally, a bit too much information shared while standing in the sun for me. The drinks were not a highlight.

The Guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable. The food was excellent. The tour pace was great. Never felt rushed. Highly recommend this tour.

Raheem was a great guide, super friendly and good energy!
