Home to renovated tobacco warehouses, the Durham Performing Arts Center, the Durham Bulls, and Historic Parrish Street, downtown Durham is about cutting edge culture and fantastic food. Let us show you this vibrant city and introduce you to the restaurants, shops and people that are making Durham one of the nation’s cultural hotspots. With a farm-to-table focus and artisan preparation of innovative cuisine, you will discover all of Durham’s flavors!

The 10am and 1:30pm Durham Downtown Tasting Tours: these tours are a fantastic way to experience six different Durham gems and learn about downtown! The restaurants featured on this tour have lines out the door every day, but the delicious tastings are prepared and ready for the tour to just walk in and enjoy! From North Carolina pasture-raised beef burgers with made-from-scratch toppings on homemade buns, to wood burning pizza with local toppings, to the perfect sandwich/ soup pairing in a mini-package, to local beer and sweets, you will come away as delighted by downtown Durham as we are! These tours includes food tastings at five to six different restaurants and food shops, with splashes of wine and tastes of beer here and there. Schedules and menus are subject to change on a week-to-week basis based on restaurant availability.

The 3:15 Durham Downtown Evening Tasting & Drinks Tour includes food and drink tastings at five to six different restaurants and bars. The restaurants featured on this tour are as farm-to-table as you will find and are all located in funky, rehabbed historic buildings. Chefs prepare substantial tour tastings all paired with small drinks, including beer, wine and cocktails. Also included on this walking tour is a tasting and demonstration at a craft cocktails bar (21+), as well as a local sweet treat at the end.

Private and custom tours and team building events can be arranged for any day or night of the week for groups.

Toured Durham for a Girls weekend. We were tired of wine tours so wanted to try something different in a City we did not know. We had an awesome experience and highly recommend the tour. Don’t eat before, because the food was plentiful. The walking pace was comfortable and we had a lot of fun.

We wanted a special way to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and this was perfect. Tanya was wonderful and knows tons of cool history about Winston. The restaurants were all delish with exceptional service. This boozy brunch tour took us to 6 stops, all with different great things to offer. We highly recommend this adventure as the perfect way to spend a Saturday.

We had an excellent tour with Johnny in Charlotte. All of the selected restaurants were fantastic and would definitely visit again. Food was appropriately sized and very well presented. Walk was relatively easy but there are some stairs or uneven pavement. Johnny is a Charlotte native and well plugged in to the local food scene from restaurants to farmers markets. Absolutely loved our time!

We took the tour in Charlotte and it was amazing! Leslie (the founder) was so great to work with our food allergies and made a custom tour for us to fit the time frame we were available. Johnny was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and gave some great history of the city as well as the food. He was very passionate and it made the tour that much more enjoyable. I recommend this to anyone visiting or current residents (which we are).
