Introduction to Atlanta Food Scene
Rhonda_B
, Apr 2021
The tour guide had a lot of energy and was very knowledgeable. The food samples were substantial and varied. Tour through cemetery was unexpected (maybe I missed it in the description) but informative.

Rhonda, Thanks so much for joining us on a tour and leaving this great review! We're so glad you had a blast with our guide. The cemetery is (I hope!) in the description but we love showing off this unexpected spot because people often don't realize how beautiful it is and how much history there is. Thanks again for joining us and we hope to have you on another tour!

great and entertaining. my family n I were just around altanta for the weekend and I wanted to do something interesting and new for my dad n husband for fathera day. the tour was a great decision. I thought the history was going to be boring but Margaret our tour guide was great. the history part was amazing to find out and see. then the food so awesome. some restuarant were better prepared for us then others but I was never disappointed in food, the growler was awesome i just wish we could have tried more beers. but everything was good. I also like how they called me to make sure we disnt have any allergies because they had other options for that which was really nice. I would definitely and already have recommended this tour. and hopeful u get Margaret as ur tour guide cuz once again she was awesome! next adventure is going to be hard to top.

Sounds like your family enjoys doing different types of things in the different types of places you visit. I'm glad my tour was on your list. Margaret is very good at sharing the history of our great city in such a way that people stay engaged and entertained. Southern cuisine is delicious. Thank you for taking my tour and posting your experience.
