All local food.

So fun. So much to eat or taste. Alcohol drinks on your own. But many family choices included. Never had so much fun food and ALL LOCAL FOOD and Memphis originals. Good way to spend your time with a lot of history included.
Fun and informative tour!

Would have liked the food to come to the table in individual portions. Sharing a dish/bowl with strangers was a little a awkward. History information was great and guide was friendly and informative.
Great Tour

Our tour guide (Taylor) was informed, pleasant and prompt. We enjoyed all stops and the historic brief on downtown Memphis. It's very apparent that Memphis is working hard to preserve downtown history as well as providing a safe environment for tourists. Would highly recommend this tour.
Started out well but could have ended better

Started out well but could have ended better. Great guide Taylor, first 3 stops good but ended on burgers deep fried in 100 year old oil -disgusting! Of course it may be because us Brits aren’t used to that but when there were so many alternate burger places this was a huge disappointment. Thank goodness we only got a quarter of one
Worth the time

Our Taste of Downtown Memphis Food Tour was so much fun. We heard interesting stories about the history and pop culture of Memphis will eating delicious foods like Dyer's Hamburgers that I'd heard so much about, but never tried-- truly a divine experience!
History and delicious bites!

I highly recommend this tour if you would like to hear a lot of history and interesting tidbits about Memphis. It was great to taste some of the famous dishes and hear about Beale street. My only complaint is I did really care to have desert first but no big deal. My favorite was the bacon truffle Mac and cheese at Slims.. just amazing! Be ready to walk for three hours.
A must do

Taylor ,our guide, was happy to tell us all she knew about downtown Memphis. Her knowledge of the area was definitely a plus. She took us to five different restaurants and each portion was bigger and better than the last. COME HUNGRY! The tour last about three hours but does not feel that long.
Nice mix of old and new places...

Nice mix of old and new places. Interesting and helpful history and background info. Food was good and plentiful. Guide Taylor was delightful loved her. Thank you!

If you do any, would recommend you go on the barbeque tour rather than the Taste of Downtown tour. 2-3 of the restaurant stops were pretty minimal for the cost of the event. Be prepared for a high energy tour guide Lance....rather intense and scattered to the point of being uncomfortable.
