This was our first stop in Asheville and it was great! Not only did we learn the lay of the land by walking downtown, we got to try some delicious food and drinks! I loved the mix of different food options--Italian, american, chocolate, honey, olive oil tasting--there was something for everyone! I highly recommend this tour!

We've been on many food tours and this was an excellent experience. Guide was knowledgable and friendly, pace was easy for everyone, food was delicious and portions were sufficient to feel satisfying without feeling overstuffed. Highly recommend it for those who are foodies and/or trying to get a sense of the culinary options in Asheville.

Spent the day with Stu on a walking food tour. Stu was knowledgeable, personable and genuinely interested in us having an amazing experience. I have been on several food tours in other states, this one takes the blue ribbon prize. Each sampling was better then the next. The pairing of food and cocktails was exquisite, delectable. I can not even... More

Our food tour with Paddy was truly a fabulous experience. All of our eight stops were amazing. The food was delicious as were the drinks. Paddy was the host with the most. Besides this being a food tour, we learned so much about the history of Asheville. Paddy was a wealth of information! Everyone visiting Asheville should do this tour.

I had a great time on the tour; I really enjoyed the places (8!) that we went to, both the food and learning a bit about the history of the businesses. Our guide, Stu, was full of information about so many of the restaurants in town, even ones that weren't on the tour. I now have a long list of... More

You shouldn't eat lunch before the tour and you will not need to eat dinner that night! We visited 8 wonderful places on the 3 1/2 hour walking food tour and were pleasantly stuffed with tasty food and drink from some of the delicious and innovative restaurants in Asheville.. Highlight was the Chocolate Fetish where we not only sampled the... More
