Interesting and fun food tour in downtown Asheville. Paddy was entertaining with all the tidbits about Asheville. The food was really good and we probably would not have ventured to these restaurants alone. Thumbs up for Asheville Food Tour!!

We did the Food Fan's Foot Tour on a cold Sunday. The tour was one of the better food tours that we have done. Samples were large, great history lesson. We left totally stuffed!

Great introduction to Asheville. Chosen restaurants were all amazing and places I wouldn't have necessarily found. Pattie rocked it as tour guide.

This is my 3rd tour with Asheville Food Tours and my first brunch tour. Stu was an awesome tour guide and the restaurants offered wonderful small plates. I was especially impressed with Korean House, Blackbird and Chocolate Fetish.

While several stops serve alcoholic beverages, if you let Paddy know ahead of time he will accommodate underage people and non-drinkers with a non-alcoholic alternative. There is a wide variety of food offered, if your child... More
