Each food tour features approximately 1.5 miles of leisurely walking. This isn’t a forced march, and in some establishments you will be able to sit down for a few minutes, but you will want to wear comfortable walking shoes as cobblestones, stairs, and hills are sometimes part of the route.

We hesitate to call the various samples of delectables the equivalent of a meal, but it would be unlikely that a guest would walk away from our tours hungry.

The tour will go on, rain or shine. Please bring an umbrella and a cheery attitude. We’ll do the same. If severe weather forces us to cancel a tour, we will notify you in advance and either refund your money or reserve you a spot on a future tour.

Unfortunately, we cannot. Some routes suit vegetarians better than others. Call or email for information.

Once purchased, tickets cannot be refunded because we have reserved space for you on the tour and with the restaurants.

Tipping the tour guide is always appreciated but never expected.

We sure do, for a minimum of 8 people. Call or email us for rates. We offer our typical food tours for your corporate outing or group, depending on group size, and we also are happy to customize tours to fit your group’s needs.


Real Richmond Food Tours began as a joint venture between two city-dwellers who want to share the wealth of what Richmond has to offer with visitors and residents alike. Maureen Egan wrote Insiders’ Guide to Richmond, VA for Globe Pequot Press in 2010, doing her due diligence in the bakery and dessert sections of the book. She’s cofounder of Fire, Flour & Fork, a gathering for the food curious, held annually in the fall. Susan and Maureen wrote Richmond’s Culinary History: Seeds of Change, published by The History Press, in 2017.

Susan Winiecki is associate publisher of Richmond Magazine, overseeing its sister publications, RBride and RHome, and managing its custom publications. (Real Richmond is not affliliated with Richmond Magazine.) She’s co-founder of Fire, Flour & Fork, a gathering for the food curious, and she has served as chair of Broad Appetit since its inception in 2008.
