Experience the delicious Southern cuisine of Atlanta on this guided, 3.5-hour, small-group food tour. Led by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable foodie guide, sample 15 food tastings at seven of the most popular restaurants in historic downtown Atlanta. Visit Paschal's, the unofficial headquarters of the Civil Rights Movement; the Smoke Ring, a rustic restaurant featuring barbecue, Southern sides and cocktails; Arden’s Garden, offering fruit juices and smoothies and many more.
Met up with our Guide at Paschal’s, the tasting menu here was very good, our guide, Emily, was very cheery and pleasant and knowledgable about her subject. The one drawback on this tour was the heavy rain which restricted the walking somewhat, but our fellow tourists were good company and made light of the weather! At each stop we received a small but tasty snack and the cuisine covered all aspects of the South. Our final stop was the market, the meat pies here were delicious! Came away from this tour having tasted a wide variety of southern food and learned a lot about Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement. As well as our guide I would like to thank the other guests who assisted with my wife who has mobility issues!
What a wonderful tour--the food was delicious, Emily, our tour guide was perfect--informative and smart and funny was perfect. Good walking as we ate and ate. All the places we stopped were great--very worth the price
Our food tour was absolutely wonderful. Jennifer and Jamie were excellent guides. They worked together well and were extremely gracious. When asked what was my favorite part of the trip, honestly it was all so good - the history, food, people, guided! Great experience! Thank you ladies!
For the price you pay, you get so much for your money. You start at about 1100 and by my recollection the tour ended at about 1500. We had Jennifer who was an amazing host. Her local knowledge was unrivalled, and I enjoyed hearing the many stories about Atlanta and its rich history in food and the civil rights movement. I was not disappointed with any of the food stops and I guarantee you wont be either! Definitely sign up to take your tour with Atlanta Food Walks itll be peachy.
I had a fantastic afternoon. My guide Jennifer Tyler, an Atlanta native and a chef herself, took me on a Southern Food Tour. It was like meeting a friend a very knowledgeable one and taking a stroll together through the history of Atlanta. The great food was an extra bonus of course.
Jennifer told me about the Civil Rights movement, the food, the places we went,but she could also answer all my difficult nerdy questions. She knows about street art, about the neighbourhoods, and food in general. Moreover, she's a fun person to spend a day with. She even brought me hand warming pouches because it was a cold day.
We had several small bites, but they add up to a full meal. Come hungry and with comfortable walking shoes.
