This was a very disappointing historical tour given by Natalie! Poor Natalie did not seem very well versed about the historical aspect. Food was good though walking tour very short. The tour did not meet expectations and I would not recommend.

We do strive to offer our guests the very best in professionalism, historical knowledge, and great food but, as humans, we may not always hit that mark. Your comments are important to us. Thank you for your feedback.

These tours are nice to take you to some new spots that you may not usually hit up on your own. Each place offered up their specialty and we were not disappointed. Wish there was a little more history provided.More

Response from C H | Reviewed this property |
We had a group of about 12 adults. I'm not sure if children are allowed on the tour. I wouldn't recommend it for young children even if children were allowed. Lots of walking, some visits include alcoholic beverages.
What does it cost? Are there tours on June 7, 8 or 9? What times?

Response from LocalRootsFoodTours | Property representative |
