Thank you to Casey for the amazing, entertaining and educational food tour last Wednesday. We started out on a gusty, cold winter afternoon walking Asheville and tasting food from some of the most obscure restaurants. Each was delightful, but Zambra Wine and Tapas was my absolute favorite. Casey stopped along the way to give us some history and entertained us... More

We wish we would have done this food tour the first day of our visit instead of the last! Patty did a great job in leading us around downtown, providing us history of Asheville and taking us to 8 different locations to try the food and beer. It was well worth the cost. We were pleasantly surprised with all the... More

We did the Friday Food Tour. It was so much better than I expected. The Food was great and the tour was fabulous. Being visitors, we never would've learned so much about Asheville or found those great spots on our own. We would definitely do another tour.

Patty was lots of fun! If you go to The Black Bird on the Food Tour, consider trying the rum balls while you are there. So good! The only thing I would change would be to have shorter distances to walk or time the restaurant stops so you walk downhill most of the time. This would be helpful for Seniors... More

All aspects of the food tour were great! Our guide, Paddy, was friendly, funny and knowledgeable about local history and cuisine. We visited a diverse group of restaurants and each was a happy surprise. We had plenty to eat and didn't need to have dinner afterwards. This tour is highly recommended!

We did the food tour with a small group of 8 and Paddy as our guide. It was perfectly calibrated in time, walking distance and refreshments and a fantastic way to spend the afternoon. Paddy himself is a real professional; a good mix of entertaining patter, Asheville food scene insider knowledge and fascinating historical/architectural facts (I've lived and worked in... More

The food tour is a great way to explore and experience Asheville's vast food options with a bit of town history thrown in. From street food styled tacos to tiny, fanciful beet salads, you will get a taste from many (eight in our case) great kitchens and/or shops. You will be neither full nor drunk at the end of the...
