Great food, great tour guide

Only bad part is Sunday tours are always the same places and so are the Friday tours. Don't understand why with so many places to dine.

Relocated to the area several years ago, finally found this great tour of some of the "other" places to eat in Rehoboth. The Guide was very entertaining and provided other information about the history of Rehoboth Beach

What pure fun! We got to sample delicious food and sip tasty drinks. As we walked from place to place, each better than the next, we learned that Rehoboth is a destination spot for great food. Our guide on the Sunday tour was fabulous--she was a chef, too! We highly recommend this experience!

We had so much fun at the Sunday Food Tour in May, that we already bought tickets to do the Friday tour in September. The food was incredible, the drinks were generous and very tasty, and the tour guide was excellent!

Boozy time!
Sun, May 8  1:00 PM Female 50-59 Combination Family Without Children
There was plenty of wine, margueritas and sangria to go around!! The restaurants were all different; Lupo with yummie meatballs, Marachie's with tasty quesadillas and wonderful sopapillas, Zoggs with very nice fish tacos, Papa Grande's with cerviche, and a fantastic, refreshing and enlightening finish at A-muse, where Chef was there to greet us! He explained that he went foraging for our salad that morning, and then had a demonstration on how he made our coconut milk gelato by flash freezing it right before our eyes!!!! Most impressive-- first by his being there, but then talking with us and giving us his precious time, as well as food prep!

We also enjoyed our time in the Olive oil store and had some eye-opening treats!!

We have already gone back to some of the featured restaurants and have enjoyed a meal. It was a very interesting afternoon-- money well-spent, and offered some insight into foods I would never order on my own.

Some of the suggestions--do be aware there is a moderate amount of walking involved, and you are only offered alcoholic drinks at each restaurant.... Definitely not an activity for those in recovery. Only A-muse had water for us, which was greatly appreciated!
Eating Rehoboth responded:
Thanks for your glowing review. We do make it clear during the ticket-buying process that this is a walking tour and that participants should be prepared for that. Also, we make a point of reminding people that there will be a cocktail at most of the stops. That being said, we wish you would have simply asked for water or a soft drink at any of the restaurants. Many non-drinkers take our tours every week and the restaurants are more than happy to accommodate with iced tea, soft drinks or water. All you had to do was ask. We are pleased that you enjoyed your tour, and that you returned to Lupo Italian Kitchen for dinner!
