Traveling with my best friend and daughters. We had a fabulous time! The food was amazing and the history of Atlanta was just what we wanted to learn about. Kennedy’s energy and excitement was really the best part! Can’t wait to come back to Atlanta!

Ariel did an excellent job as our tour guide. The initial meeting place was easy to find. The food at all of the stops was delicious. I've already been back to two of the stops on the tour. The eating and walking pace was relaxed. The follow along online brochure was fun and creates a good momento of the trip. Ariel was also able to provide tips on additional places to eat in Grant Park as well as in other parts of Atlanta. I'd recommend this tour for groups interested in a little history of Atlanta and some tasty food. Also the tour was great at accommodating our teenagers. They got mocktails that they loved and overall really enjoyed the tour.

Thanks so much for your review of our Grant Park Food Walk with Ariel! We're so happy that you easily found us, and that you found your tastings as amazing as we know them to be! As Atlantans, we love to hear that someone who takes our tours has come back to support our local businesses, so Thank You for that as well! We're so glad we could provide such a fun and engaging tour for you and your teens!
