Should I eat anything before the tour?2017-03-01T20:56:22+00:00

Didn’t your mom warn you about spoiling your appetite? We don’t recommend eating anything immediately before your tour, as food and drink on the tour is enough for most to feel full afterward. However, keep in mind this is NOT a buffet tour meant to stuff you to your eyeballs. This foodie tour adventure features local cuisine and drink, but also historical and cultural information in between restaurant stops. Our goal is to feed your mind as well as your belly.

How much food/drink is served on the tours?2018-06-25T00:49:23+00:00

Flavors of Atlanta provides samples of food and drink, enough for most people to feel comfortably full afterward. *Participants must be 21 years or older to drink alcohol in Georgia. * If an underage guest attends they will be served a non-alcohol substitute.

What type of cuisine can I expect on the tours?2018-06-25T00:51:07+00:00

You didn’t come to Atlanta to try a quesadilla! You will experience and learn about cuisine native to the South as well as the cuisine from restaurants unique to the Midtown neighborhood. Please note: enough food/drink is served so that most people feel pleasantly satiated at the end of their foodie experience.

Do we just go around and sample food?2018-06-25T00:51:27+00:00

Our food tours are so much more than that. Our tours center on areas that have wonderful, rich history and flavor. Visitors learn the history of Peachtree Street, Midtown and the many influences that shaped our cuisine and culture plus information unique about the area. The tour is fully narrated by your entertaining tour guide who will discuss history, culture, entertaining tidbits, and “off the eaten track” foodie locations.

Do you operate tours in the rain?2019-08-13T21:37:29+00:00

As an intimate, personalized boutique tour we run our food tours rain or shine. Please remember the main focus of this tour is the cuisine – which is consumed inside. Please bring appropriate gear for the weather. In the case of extreme weather since we care about the safety of our guests we will offer free reschedules or gift cards for another date.

What is included in my food tour experience?2017-03-01T20:54:35+00:00

Everything! Pricing for the food, drink, tour guide and restaurant tips is taken care of for you. Our Flavors of Atlanta Food Tours provide guests with enough food and drink so that most people will feel pleasantly full afterwards. We would like to point out at his stage if the buffet line is more your style, you might want to opt out of our tour. Our goal is not only to fill your tummy but to convey the area’s culture and unique heritage and increase your foodie I.Q. That is why in addition to food and drink, our foodie experiences also provide historical and cultural information about the areas we visit in between tasting locations.

Can a child/teen/elderly guest participate?2018-06-25T00:52:59+00:00

ELDERLY GUESTS:

We invite the whole family to experience our cuisine-centered tour experiences. However guests should note that our Atlanta Food Tours are up to 3 hours in length and feature a lot of standing and walking. Guests should be comfortable walking about 2 miles over uneven streets, walking a flight of stairs and strolling up/down hills.

Our food tour tasting locations are a mixture of relaxed seating at partner restaurants and tastings that are shorter and faster paced which have no designated seating for each guest. This allows us to cover as much as possible plus add in the historical and cultural aspects of the city.

CHILDREN ON TOUR:

The company founder has two young kids herself and is fully aware what traveling with young ones is like! We offer tickets at a special price for children (and kids 2 and under are free) so families are welcome on tour. However, keep in mind some children/teens have a limited attention span and may not enjoy the historical and cultural aspects that are a part of our tour offerings (especially the standing/walking involved across a multi hour tour), but we ultimately leave it up to the parents to decide if our tours are right for them. There is space in the restaurants for a collapsible stroller (we suggest going with the umbrella stroller style to ensure comfort in tight spaces).

NOTE: alcohol will be consumed on tour. Must be 21+ to drink and non-alcohol subs will be available

Vegetarians, Vegans, Allergies and non alcoholic drinks2019-08-13T21:42:30+00:00

We are happy to accommodate guests with the following dietary restrictions: vegetarian, pescetarian, gluten free, no alcohol, diary free, nut allergies (although we cannot guarantee 100% free cross contamination in kitchens because as a food tour we do not control what happens in our restaurant partner’s kitchens)

We pride ourselves in being able to offer suitable substitutes for vegetarian, pescetarian, gluten free, no alcohol, diary free, nut allergies while showcasing the best of the local neighborhood cuisine. However, since we are NOT able to showcase local neighborhood cuisine at the level we feel guests deserve we must state we cannot accommodate vegans. We are happy to offer restaurant recommendations for vegan diners, however.
