    A lovely family day in Durham with Triple A Food Tours.
    From a unique 'artisan' cafe breakfast to Mexican tacos to Asian fusion and finally to delicious deserts all accompanied by plentiful tipples. Durham is a great city to wander and Julie our guide, gave us lots of little sound bites on the history surrounding us. This was my third Triple A Food Tour and my favourite, my wife (vegetarian) preferred the Newcastle Tour but to be honest they've all been brilliant.
    Great tour with great food, tea, hot toddy's, margaritas, wine and a charming guide, perfect!! Eight of us all scored it 10/10. Looking forward to Ouseburn March 24.

    We are great fans of Food Tours and choose to join them whenever we visit a new city. On our way to Northumberland, we chose the Durham Food Tour and had a great afternoon. A friendly and knowledgeable guide Julie led us through the city, stopping for food and drink in 5 different places. Great food, plenty of it, and a great overview of Durham. We would definitely recommend this tour.

    Another fabulous tour! I’ve previously done the Newcastle tour with Triple A and loved it so me and my friend travelled from opposite ends of the UK to do the Durham one. Absolutely loved it! Definitely no scrimping on the food or drink. We started off with a variety of homemade sausage rolls and a Baileys iced coffee from a quirky gift shop/deli. Then a lock in at the wine shop in the market. Loved this place! Then Mexican tapas - best margaritas! Then Chinese fusion and more wine. And finished with some Marco Pierre White desserts (and more wine). There were only four of us in the group but think that was lovely as we all got on well. I can’t fault these tours. Will definitely be doing more! Shout out to Donna, our tour guide. Perfect balance of a little bit of local info and leaving us to enjoy the food and drink at each venue. 10/10

    A Christmas present for my wife and what a fascinating wander around Durham. Our guide Julie was very knowledgeable and a very professional friendly guide.
    The first stop delivered an excellent breakfast butty in sourdough bread. The wine shop in the market provided great wine and an interesting conversation about wines. The restaurant that we had not come across before was the Barrio Comida and what an amazing find. Great food and a fantastic view of the cathedral. With 2 more stops on our tour, we were absolutely stuffed by the time we had finished and didn't eat again until the following day. We even had to take a doggy bag away with us from our dessert stop. Julie also shared some interesting facts and stories about Durham during the tour.
    If you are in Durham and looking for a gentle wander around the city with regular stops for food and drink then this is the tour for you. The great news is that there are also food tours in Newcastle which are now on our to do list

    Fabulous tour! Lots of great food and drink, and information about the city along the way. It was actually excellent value for me, with so much food of good portions, and also plenty of drinks (alcohol offered, non- alcoholic available). Great day out and highly recommend

    We had an absolutely brilliant day with Julia! It was very good of the team to go ahead with the tour, given it was just me and my husband. What a treat to have a private tour of Durham!

    Julia was fab, she gave us some very interesting facts about the city, we took in all the main sights, and every foodie stop-off was excellent. Thank you for introducing us to so many great, independent businesses (and for accommodating us so well as veggies) - we are already planning our next trip to re-visit!

    This was a perfect birthday gift for my husband, thanks for making it so enjoyable. We will certainly be booking on future Triple A tours.

    A great tour of Durham and some of its finest eateries. The very knowledgeable tour guide Julie looked after us keeping us informed and accompanying us and gently moving us on to the next place. We tried some delicious food and drinks and met some lovely people

    We joined this tour with 6 friends and ended with 10!
    Our guide, Julie, was amazing and gave just the right mix of history and local knowledge as well as taking us to some fantastic food spots. This tour is a great way to see Durham whilst also experiencing some great food and wine.

    Booked this tour for my partner’s birthday and couldn’t have been more delighted. Julie went above and beyond to make sure we and the other guests had a great time. Loads of food sampling and LOADS of drinking! Got a couple of birthday surprises along the way so thanks to Julie for organising it. Definitely recommend it and will certainly book again in the future.
