Great food with no waiting in lines. The guide was very knowledgable and personable. The restaurant guides were also informative. I really enjoyed the history of the short north even though I have been a life long resident of the area. I would highly recommend this tour.

I thoroughly enjoyed this 4 hour tour. Michelle was knowledgeable, relaxed, and friendly--the best kind of professional! Even though I live nearby, she took us to places that I had never been, and shared interesting information about the more familiar places. She also appeared to have a very good working relationship with the shopowners, and we were treated to some... More

We had a blast! Our group was small, but we enjoyed the company of the others. The food was awesome! We plan to try another one sometime.

Our apologies for the repetition of the beet and greens salads - it’s not a typical dish for our tour groups at either restaurant, and was the result of having an unusually large number of guests with dietary restrictions that we and the restaurants were trying to accommodate. We do coordinate with restaurants to specifically try to avoid repetition, and... More

She made the event very interesting with some additional stops and history of the area. Each place we walked to had prepared for our arrival and greeted our tour group warmly. It was a great experience we will... More

My husband and I had a great time on the food tour of Worthington. We enjoyed learning about the history of the area and the visit to the print shop was great fun.

We had an excellent time on the Short North food tour. Deborah was an awesome guide, the food was fantastic, meeting people from the restaurants was fun...It rained all day but it was still 100% worth it!
