We arrived in Asheville to begin our five day anniversary vacation in time for brunch on the Saturday Brunch Tour with Brandon. It couldn't have been a more perfect start to the week and to adventures ahead. Brandon is so knowledgeable on the history and architecture of the area. He has a wonderful sense of the food scene and pointed our group in many directions to explore. After delicious blackberry mimosa's at Blackbird, we stopped at five other delicious eateries, each varied in it's own way, but all with a touch of character that makes the food scene in Asheville so special. We were lucky enough to enjoy four more days in town, exploring some of the suggested restaurants and bars at our own pace. If you only have a day or an entire week, begin your trip here! Thank you, Brandon, and all of the fine food establishments for hosting us on a fabulous morning!

Our tour had 8 stops and all were quite different from each other. Also learned a lot about down town Ashville.

Paddy did an excellent job of showcasing Asheville and the 8 restaurants that we visited. Paddy was funny, informational and made everyone feel right at home during the food tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Asheville for the first time. It gave us a real sense of the city and also gave us a great selection of restaurants to consider dining at while we were there in the city. Great tour!

Paddy was an excellent, entertaining, knowledgable tour guide for the Asheville Food Tours. We enjoyed getting to know the people on the tour. Paddy taught us a lot about the city of Asheville and we enjoyed ourselves. The idea is amazing. We loved getting to know the city. I recommend going on this tour the first night you are there so you can take the guide's suggestions for restaurants. The only issue I had was the choices of food on this particular tour. There were lots of sweet foods and sweet drinks- great if you are looking for a dessert or chocolate tour, not so good if you want more savory or dry drinks. The trick is that even the tour guide doesn't know what will be served at each establishment, so maybe the comment is more for the restaurants or for the person who books the tours- maybe a vegetable dish or a signature side with a beer or wine to break up the heavy food and sweet cocktails. We did have a half glass of wine and half a beer (an ESB) but otherwise we were inundated with very sweet drinks and fairly heavy samples. In no way did we leave hungry and the tour itself is a very easy walk and great for people "up for anything."

Take this tour with Genevee. The six sites we visited were all different and delicious. We will go back at other times. Genevee was informed about architecture and history of Asheville.
Great morning tour.
