I would recommend this tour to all but keep in mind there are a lot of stairs and walking. Food was wonderful and with the mixed drinks or wine served at each stop you definitely get more than your moneys worth. Non alcoholic drinks and water were also included if requested. Servings were generous and unique. All restaurants were well... More

We went on this tour with our faculty to celebrate the end of the year. It was amazing! We were able to meet the chefs, eat amazing dishes from 5 different restaurants and learn about Greenville all in the span of 3 hours. Well worth the money!

This was a nice tour, but don't eat lunch before you come as the portions are huge! Our first two stops had more than we eat for lunch usually & we were quite full. Also, the first two stops were very similar...so there was a bit too much of the same on the tour. Would be nice if it were... More

The tour ended up being great after some confusion as to where we'd be starting the tour as it was not mentioned on any of the confirmations received. The tour seems coordinated with the Table 301 restaurants as it just goes to those places. On my tour, we went to five different restaurants and stopped at some other places for... More

Took the tour with John today. Five great restaurants in downtown Greenville. Portions at the sites were very generous and very tasty. John incorporated the history of Greenville into the tour as we walked from place to place. Hope to take his BBQ for in the future. Highly recommend this tour.

When we first moved to Greenville in 2013 my wife and I took this tour to help ourselves get more aquainted with downtown and some of the restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised to not only enjoy a terrific sampling of some of the downtowns restaurants but got a great historic tour as well. John Nolan not only knows food he... More

My wife and I are locals and loved this tour. Getting to meet the chefs and learn about their food was a treat. Our guide John was personable and has a wealth of short, interesting historical stories that helped us appreciate downtown Greenville even more. We would definitely do this again.

John has picked a great selection of restaurants to feature the delicious eats (and drinks!) in downtown Greenville and paired it with some interesting historical highlights along the way. My party of five ranged from 25-88 years of age, and everyone absolutely LOVED it. There was a bit of walking on the tour (about one mile in total), but the... More

I went as part of an older adult church group on this tour. We went to 5 restaurants, all within easy walking distance of each other. The food was different in each location, the restaurants themselves were all different from each other... but one thing they all had in common was FABULOUS food and enticing setting. Our guide, John, was... More
