We don’t like to brag (really?!!), so we’ll let our food tour guests tell you what they think about our tours. And check out tripadvisor too!
…This tour was the highlight of my day in Richmond. It was so interesting and the food locations were amazing. I have been raving about it to my friends and can’t wait to do another one. There was so much more food than I was expecting and it was all delicious. The chefs and owners were so nice and accommodating. It was an amazing experience, especially since I had never been to Richmond before.

…I guess you would say my husband and I were the typical ‘West End’ folks who rarely venture downtown. This showcased the area and the local restaurants–great exposure for folks like us. Will definitely come back down…. THANKS.

…Totally enjoyable. A highlight of interactive events and tours I have been on in Richmond. We all stated we would be interested in another. For me, this was one of the best walking tours I have been on.
…Getting my husband and three teens to do anything together is often a big risk, but this one paid off with great dividends.
