A good local history of Memphis and Beale Street
Nov 2021
This was a great way to get a good local history of Memphis and Beale Street while tasting the local cuisine. Taylor did a great job showing us around. You don't really think of Beale street as a place that would have great food so that was a pleasant surprise. We would do this again. And our teenage boys thought it was pretty wonderful too. Thanks Taylor!

Taste of Downtown Memphis Food Tour
Nov 2021 • Couples
Our tour person was Taylor and she was great. Had a lot of knowledge about the Beale street history. The places we went to sample food was great. Made you want to go back and eat a meal there. Gave us plenty of time to take pictures and just look around the restaurant and absorb the history. We really enjoyed the tour. Would recommend to anyone.

Loved Memphis Even More after the Tour!
Nov 2021
We took the tour on a Monday and my husband and I were the only ones. Private tour! Harper was THE best tour guide ever! Not only did we stop for amazing food, we heard history on the area, and we learned how to judge great bbq. He's also a pitmaster and judge. I was worried that since we only had a group of 2, he would like to get the tour over with quickly. Nope! Never felt rushed and had great conversations, felt like catching up with an old friend. We had great ribs (wet and dry rub), bbq nachos, and because there was only 2 of us, we were able to sneak into a fudge shop and also share an amazing cheeseburger and chocolate milkshake in one of Elvis' hangouts. I'm sure it really doesn't matter where Harper leads you. You will have a history lesson, great company, and delicious food. Book it!

Don't pass this up!
Highly recommend this for anyone that's new to Memphis as we are. Our guide was super!! knowledgeable and gave some great history of the Beale Street area. She spent time with each group chatting and even spent some time filling one of our group members back in on something she missed. Plenty of time at each stop to enjoy the food samples and look around. All the food was amazing! We felt we got our money's worth after the first stop.

Fabulous experience
A wonderful introduction to a great city and its many flavors from a tour guide who’s passion about the city and food was obvious and infectious! Beyond all the wonderful food sampled, we learned many interesting details about the city and its rich history. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. You certainly won’t leave hungry or disappointed!

Tour that is well worth the time and introduction to Memphis
Oct 2021 • Friends
Harper was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable on local history and the local restaurants and their different styles. He went above and beyond our expectations. He took pictures of our group and provided additional information about Memphis area restaurants.

Definitely do this tour!!
Sep 2021 • Couples
This food tour was awesome!! From BBQ spaghetti, to ribs (wet & dry), to BBQ nachos, to BBQ pizza, you couldn’t go wrong. As an added bonus, we also got a 2.5 mile walk in. Not only did we taste the wide variety of BBQ items, our food guide Harper, gave us some insight on the Memphis past. This tour is well worth it!!
