Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to purchase tickets in advance?
Yes, advance tickets are required as tours typically sell out quickly. Please reserve early to get your preferred date and time.
What’s included in the ticket price?
All food tastings and an engaging tour guide are included in the ticket price. Tour guide gratuities are not included, but are always appreciated.
Will we just walk around and eat?
Absolutely not! Our tours share the stories of the people, places and food that make each city such a wonderful place to visit and live. Between bites, we walk through historic neighborhoods filled with unexpected landmarks and lore that even locals don’t know about.
What happens if it rains?
We have fun on our tours in any weather. Tours take place rain or shine, so dress accordingly. Tickets are non-refundable and cannot be rescheduled. We reserve the right to cancel a tour in case of severe weather, in which case we will offer full refunds or change your tour date.
Can I get a refund or reschedule my ticket?
We limit our tours to 12 guests, and once a reservation is made, your space is guaranteed. Tickets are non-refundable and cannot be re-booked for a different date, so please book your tour on a date when you know you can attend. We cannot give credit for no shows, and we do not issue partial credit for late arrivals or early departures.
How much food will we eat?
Most guests find that it’s plenty of food for lunch and leave the tour feeling satisfied but not stuffed.
Are there vegetarian options?
With advance notice, we can usually ensure vegetarian (not vegan) offerings on most tours. If you are a vegetarian, it’s best to specify what you do or don’t eat when ordering tickets.
How far will we walk?
Our tours typically cover 1 mile, give or take. Several of the tasting stops offer a chance to sit and rest, but we are walking when we’re not eating.
Is the tour wheelchair accessible?
Most of the restaurants and specialty food shops are wheelchair accessible. The tour meanders through historic Nashville neighborhoods, where sidewalks are brick-lined and uneven. Feel free to call 918-320-9682 to discuss any accessibility concerns.
Are bathrooms available during the tour?
Yes, there are ample opportunities to use restrooms during a tour.
Do tours begin and end at the same place?
Tours end within a couple of blocks of the starting point. We will be sure you know how to get back to where we started–or wherever you’d like to go after the tour.
Is parking available nearby? What about public transportation?
Our tours begin in areas with paid parking lots and some street parking.
Would locals enjoy the tour?
We host nearly as many local residents as visitors on our tours. Locals have a great time on our tours and often feel more connected to people and places in the neighborhood after taking a tour.
Do you offer private tours?
We happily offer private versions of our food tours, or we can create a custom culinary experience to meet your needs. If you are interested private tours, send a few details including desired date and time to [email protected] or call 918-320-9682.
