FAQs

Do I have to purchase tickets in advance?
Yes, tickets must be purchased in advance. Tours often sell out so we suggest purchasing your tickets early to guarantee your desired tour day. You can buy your tickets either online or by phone with a Visa, Mastercard or American Express.
What about taking children or adolescents on the tour?
While children are welcome on the tour, please keep in mind that tours are 3 hours long and we walk approximately 1½ miles. Parents, who know their children best, should assess whether a 3 hour walking food tour is appropriate for their own child’s attention span and stamina. Any child who will not be participating in tastings is welcome to attend for free and does not need a ticket.
What about inclement weather?
Tours will run rain or shine. We ask that you check the weather forecast and dress accordingly if inclement weather is predicted.
How much walking and standing is involved?
The tour covers approximately 1½ miles over a 3 hour period. The tour is conducted at a relaxed pace and stops frequently. We still recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes, as we will be on our feet most of the time.
What if I have dietary restrictions or food allergies? Are there vegetarian options on the tour?
Please let us know if anyone in your party has a dietary restriction or food allergy when you purchase your tickets. As long as we know in advance, we will work to accommodate your needs to the best of our ability. Please note that there may be some tastings on the tour that can be difficult to replace and that we cannot guarantee substitutions for all tastings.
How much food is served?
We generally stop at 3-5 locations. Enough food is served to amount to a satisfying meal for most participants.

In addition, you are welcome to purchase other alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages along the way. Just be sure to bring a valid government issued ID if you wish to purchase alcohol. Please note that we do have a schedule to keep, so any purchases made should not interrupt the tour's ability to stay on schedule.
When is the best time to take the tour?
We generally recommend taking the tour early during your stay in town to allow enough time to revisit some of your favorite stops later during your trip.
Do we only walk around and sample food?
This tour not only showcases the delicacies our city has to offer but will also give you the insider's scoop on local life! Learn about the history, architecture and culture of a neighborhood while tasting delicious specialties from some of the most popular, authentic and unique establishments in town.

Do your tours have anything to offer a local?
Absolutely! While you may be familiar with our route and some of the stops, you will have the opportunity to try new foods at the tasting locations and learn more about the establishments themselves. Also, being a local, you have the unique opportunity to re-visit the eateries we feature on the tour and any other recommendations we point out at your leisure! Additionally, this tour is an excellent way to entertain out-of-town guests, celebrate a special occasion or encourage professional team building.
