Fabulous Experience
Fri, Aug 28  1:00 PM Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We enjoyed every minute of this culinary tour of Rehoboth Beach. Our tour leader, Paul, was friendly and personable, and very knowledgeable about the restaurants in Rehoboth. We felt that it was an excellent value for the price, and an experience we plan to repeat. We highly recommend it for both visitors and locals who wish to learn more about the vibrant Rehoboth restaurant scene.

Paul Cullen was great.

Enjoyed the walking, eating and meeting new people. I don't like Mexican food, but it was tasty. I liked the other 3 restaurants we went to. Would do it again, but would have to go to 5 new places.

Great Tour... Highly Recommended

My wife and I had a really good time on the Sunday tour. Paul was entertaining, engaging and knowledgable and each of the locations visited were enthusiastic about presenting their unique approach to food and drinks. I highly recommend the tour for locals or visitors as a great way to see a variety of places or learn something new and interesting about the places you may already love.

We had a great afternoon strolling the streets of Rehoboth with Paul. His restaurant choices and knowledge of the area were Fabulous! I would recommend this tour to locals who want a great afternoon out for lunch, maybe discovering some new favorite places to eat, as well as visitors who want to learn about the town and experience the flavor of Rehoboth.

Try to fit this in!

We have been coming to Rehoboth for years. This was the first time we took a walking food tour. Our guide Paul was lots of fun and went out of his way to make sure we all had good time. The 5 restaurants have very different menus. Each stop provided a small dish and an alcoholic drink. If you do not drink alcohol, you will want to bring a bottle of water. There were 16 people in our group. We started as strangers but by the end of the 3 hours, we were friends at a movable party.

A great way to spend an afternoon
Fri, Aug 21  1:00 PM Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
This was my third year for this food tour. We went to 5 restaurants within easy walking distance plus a spice store. As a repeat offender: this has not gotten old; the foods and cocktails are terrific, the owners are so happy to share about their restaurants and their roots, and the other tour participants have been great companions. Although over the years I've visited a couple of the same restaurants, the offerings have been completely different each time. Most restaurants have not been the same over the years. Expect a good deal for the price, and a lovely way to spend a leisurely afternoon. I can highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic way to eat, walk and meet people

A highlight of a great week at the beach. What a great way to sample some of the best food and drink that Rehoboth has to offer, meet the restaurateurs and get a little history of the city t the same time. Would absolutely do this again every time we return to rehoboth. The price is fantastic, the food is amazing and talking with the owners and other tour participants was a blast!
