Highly Recommended: Unique, Fun, & Different

I went on this tour recently with my wife, her mom & our 6 year old. We enjoyed meeting the other people on the tour and our tour guide Deborah was wonderful! It was a great family experience. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed the tour & meeting the different business owners and chefs that came out. We also liked learning more about the historic nature of the city and architecture as well as the trivia. The food and drinks were great too. Definitely something fun and different to try. Would go again.

A Delicious Way to Explore Charlottesville

I’ve been on food tours in New Orleans, Charleston and Nashville and and decided to try this as a fun way to explore Charlottesville while in town for a quick trip. Deborah made excellent food selections and shared a bit of info and history along the way. The tastings included a wide variety of drink and food options and just the right amount of each. Everything was delicious! Our favorite stop was Bebedero— it was so delicious! The weather was perfect for walking and since there were only two of us on the tour we ended early, giving us enough time to walk around the Mall by ourselves.

Engaging Exploration of Food and History

The tour involved six unique and interesting places from beer to chocolate. Each site gave us a warm welcome and tasty dishes and drinks--unique Mexican sopas p to a wide range of herbs & spices, teas, bitters, and ice cream. Debbie was delightful, good natured, friendly, and knowledgeable. Our friends from out of town appreciated the history and the Mall. As locals, the Taproom was a wonderful surprise. We'd do it again and are considering taking friends on the Dinner Tour.

Wonderful evening!!!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our very first food tour during an anniversary stay in VA. Deborah was delightful and taught us so much about the downtown area. All six stops were well organized and the service we received was top notch. I also loved learning about and eating in a restaurant that you would never know was there!! An absolute MUST DO in Charlottesville!!!

Sampling a Way of Life

I arrived in Charlottesville the night before I toured Monticello. As a solo traveler, I wanted a way to see the sights, taste yummy food, and gain a little local knowledge of Charlottesville’s charm. I loved this tour! Our host was so charming, and she selected the varied culinary experiences with expertise. Our group of diverse travelers were soon chatting up a storm. The potentially solo evening was transformed into a pleasant and memorable evening thanks to the Taste of Charlottesville tour!
