My husband and I were the only ones on the tour with lance and we had a great time. Lance was so knowledgeable about the area of Memphis and about the food. Our tour lasted a little longer than expected and actually I wish we could have just paid him for a few more hours to hang out with us... More

The food was good. The horrible racist commentary during the entire tour was very disturbing. As we walked the streets and at the restaurants many people of color had looks of shock on their faces to hear Lance's comments. He is neither a person of color nor a Southerner but he felt compelled to share his take on history. We... More

I booked my tour and got my dates mixed up and we showed up for our tour a week early. The good news is that Carol with TRT took care of everything and was able to put us with another food tour that day. Lance was our guide and he did not miss a beat when he had 2 more... More

My family (mum, dad and 2 kids (15 and 18) did this tour with Lance in January 2016 and my apologies to Lance for taking so long to post a review. Hopefully it is a testament that even after this amount of time it remains one of the best, most memorable experiences of our time in the US (we were... More

We lucked out, in that we were the only ones on the tour that day. We did the Taste of Downtown Memphis tour and it was excellent. Plenty of great tasting food, and we returned to the city the next day to have lunch at one of the places we visited. Excellent tour guide, although he might want to give... More

Well what can I say. My partner booked this tour and I was a bit "Meh" about it. We met Lance, our tour guide, and it was just Lance and the 2 of us. Wow...what a fantastic afternoon we had. Lance talks you through the different styles of BBQ and you are taken to 6 or so different BBQ places... More

Toured on July 12 and had a great time. There were 6 people on the tour, so we loved the small group. We could hear everything that the guide, Lance, said, the walking was slow and easy, it was very hot, and the stops were scheduled perfectly. You walked, heard some great stories, went inside of a cool eatery, enjoyed... More

My partner and I had a wonderful afternoon with Debbie from Tastin Round Town, and it was one of the best things we did during our 5 days in Memphis! We were lucky enough to be the only people on the tour with Debbie, and she was a fabulous host. We visited 6 places, each one completely different to the... More

If I could give Tastin' Around Town Food Tours six stars, I would. It was one of the highlights of our four-day stay in Memphis and a great way to kick off our visit. My husband and I took the Taste of Memphis Tour hoping to get a sampling of barbecue but also to taste other local favorites. Our guide,... More

Lance was a great tour guide. He took us to 6 different places all of which supplied us with excellent food. Do not eat before the tour and do not expect to eat after the tour.
