The tour guide Zack was great. Food was good but had no options. Water not even provided at one restaurant. Over represented and way over priced.

This was a GREAT tour! Our tour guide (Zach) was excellent and the food at every stop was delicious 😋 We would recommend that anyone taking this tour eat nothing (or very little) for breakfast. We had our final food stop at 2 PM or so and had no desire to eat until the next day!

The most memorable part of the food tour was the authentic Italian Pizza! The ingredients come from Italy.

Arrived five minutes early and waiting an additional 25 for our guide. No show. Unable to speak to a customer service person. Requested refund via email but still haven’t received a phone call or explanation. Unfortunate.

Good tour... lots of food

Tour was great. Zachary was very nice. Go hungry. There is a LOT of food... almost too much. Suggest trading one food stop for a beverage (juice bar, iced tea, etc) or another historical point of interest.

Tacos to cookie heaven

Wonderful tour! We like to start our trips with a brief overview of the city’s history & good food, so we are big fans of food tours. This was no different & Zachary was absolutely wonderful. Great anecdotal stories of how businesses started, wonderful history of Austin and then the food. Good gracious. We ate so much…from the velvet taco to the best cookie I may have had in my life. Wonderful way to spend our first afternoon in Austin.

We had a great time! The food was excellent and Zach was an awesome guide. The food was so good that we even returned to a couple of the places visited on the tour to try other things on the menu.

Terrible
Lubica_P
, Aug 2021
Terrible experience. No secret food places, we went to well known chains: velvet taco, Glorias, voodo donuts. We went to a pizza place for a desert. No insight from the tour guide. Not worth the money. No special food- basic no side dishes. You’re better off walking up and down Congress street, stopping in every restaurant, ordering one basic thing from their menu and making up your own stories as we did as to what makes these places special (secret).

Eddie was very informative and easy to talk with, very much a people person. He gave us a lot of interesting information about Austin … things we did not know and we lived in Austin for several years. The food choices were excellent and restaurants we will visit again.
