We made 7 stops on the tour and while we were not impressed with all the stops, we were glad we got to try a number of places without committing to a... More

If you're looking for a great time and love food this is your tour. Ask for Stu Helms!

We had a great time! Paddy was our guide this lovely afternoon walking from one fascinating dining experience to another and several more, while providing us all with fascinating and often funny historical background information at every location and during every walk, in between. It was truly a highlight of our visit here. Jeff and Gail from Hamilton NJ

We took our 11-year old granddaughter on the downtown food tour. It was great for all of us. The restaurants they chose were excellent as was the food we samples. I highly recommend this professional and informative tour company!
