Kim_Z, Oct 2019
We have taken food tours before with Viator in Rome and had a great time! However this tour even topped that! Jamie our tour guide was wonderful! She truly catered to us and helped make it a spectacular food tour. She knew her food and history of the area. We chose this tour because we wanted to taste the food of the local restaurants! All the food was delicious! We would go again in a heart beat! If you only have time for one food tour we would highly recommend this one and ask for Jamie!
Everyone who visits Atlanta should take this tour.

This tour would have been worth every dime if all I had experienced was the fabulous food but it gave so much more. As we walked the streets of Atlanta I learned about the history of the city and that of the people who walked its streets. I learned more about the Civil Rights Movement and Martin Luther King's journey than I would have thought possible in three hour's time. It was one of the most moving experiences I've every had.
