    Stop At: Unexpected Atlanta Walking Tours, 180 Northside Dr SW, Atlanta, GA 30313-1312

    This food tour takes you off-the-beaten path to Atlanta's gorgeous Victorian neighborhood to try 12 mouth-watering tastings from 5 restaurants and food shops. The 3-hour small group tour will introduce you to the story of Atlanta's founding and why Atlanta truly was a city built on food, while you taste modern Southern and Southern fusion dishes, such as pork belly toast with tomato jam and goat cheese and fried catfish with cucumber wasabi soy sauce.

    Your guide will entertain and inform you on the easy 2 mile walk with stories and insights into Atlanta's settlement and the Civil War, Atlanta yesterday and today, and the city’s food culture. In fact, many guests tell us that this is the best value in the city because it's both a food tour and a history tour in one!  You'll be introduced to neighborhoods and stories about Atlanta that even locals don’t know!  Feed your belly and your mind with Atlanta's most unique culinary experience.

    • Six Feet Under: the neighborhood's top seafood joint
    • Republic Social House: neighborhood watering hole
    • My Friend's Growler Shop: local-focused beer store

    We joined our tour guide, Margaret, and 8 other guests on a beautiful fall morning for a walking foodie/history tour of the Oakland Cemetery area. This was our first time visiting Atlanta. We visited 4 different restaurants with unique takes on modern southern dishes.

    Margaret did a fantastic job conducting our food tour of the area surrounding Oakland Cemetery. We learned so much from her about the history of “Standing Peachtree” and Atlanta while stopping by several local restaurants for quick bites that have been explained in other posts.
