      James_K, Jan 2023
      Taylor was our tour guide. Taylor was full of local knowledge, very engaging and personable. Her stories about Robert Johnson and W.C. Handy were a personal favorite (we are Blues fans!). The tour was not rushed, the food was amazing (and extremely filling). I highly recommend this tour. I cannot say enough about this experience. Don't miss it if you can!

      Harper was a great tour guide, very knowledgable. He went above and beyond to make us comfortable and had several suggestions on places to go/things to do while in Memphis! He even has fudge named after him :)
      Great food and overall, good time.
      Sandra_S, Oct 2022
      We enjoyed the taste tour, very much. The food was good and, our guide Taylor, took time to answer our questions . If she didn’t know an answer, she found out the answer and relayed it back to us. She was very knowledgeable on the food and also history of the establishments we visited.

      Great tour! Harper was engaging and knowledgeable! The food stops were great and we got to try places on Beale street that we would not have known were so good! We also got a lot of information about the history of Memphis as we walked.
      Harper and Tastin' Memphis are the best
      Julie_J, Oct 2022
      Harper was just the best guide. Having a tour guide that knows BBQ was great. Loved all the places we went. Loved Harper's knowledge of Mrmphis history, he's loved there just about all his life. The food variety was great. Can't say enough good things about Harper and this tour

      Memphis is the place to go!
      Kelly_H, Sep 2022
      We enjoyed our 1st tour so much we took another the next day. Our guides made the difference. They were very knowledgeable about the city as well as the places to go. I recommend this for anyone looking for an introduction to Memphis (both food & history).
