  • Atlanta: Food Tour of Inman Park and the Atlanta Beltline

    Experience delicious Southern Food in all its wondrous forms, from traditional to modern - often with a twist. This small-group tour only takes you to locally-owned restaurants who have won "best-of" awards for their food. In total, visit 6 award-winning restaurants with tastings at each. Some tastings will be smaller, others will be larger, but in total it equals a satisfying lunchtime meal, so come hungry!

    Great tour. Michael, the tour guide was very knowledgeable, organized, and fun. The food was good and plentiful, however, not southern food. Food was Indian, Italian, Puerto Rican, pastries, and chicken wings. The only Southern food was boiled peanuts. The cocktail was good. We were able to sit down at each tasting except for the donut on the go. Thorough walking tour of Inman Park. The walk was advertised as two miles and three hours, but it was actually four miles and four hours. But worth it. I recommend you do the tour in cooler weather. It was a great tour combining Beltline walk, Atlanta history, and good tastings.

My sister and I did a girls trip to Atlanta and chose this tour to learn more about Atlanta's history and sample some of the restaraunts. Our tour guide Michael was excellent. He was very knowledgeable, outgoing and personable. You could tell that he enjoys his job. We had a relatively small group (6 people) amd he kept us engaged and answered any questions we had. The food was a good mix of sweets and savory. We started at Krog market at JOI HO (an Indian restaraunt) which was my favorite as well as The Albert. Walked alomg part of the beltway, and ended at Inman Park at Voga (gelato). I would definitely recommend this tour.

Great tour. Michael, the tour guide was very knowledgeable, organized, and fun. The food was good and plentiful, however, not southern food. Food was Indian, Italian, Puerto Rican, pastries, and chicken wings. The only Southern food was boiled peanuts. The cocktail was good. We were able to sit down at each tasting except for the donut on the go. Thorough walking tour of Inman Park. The walk was advertised as two miles and three hours, but it was actually four miles and four hours. But worth it. I recommend you do the tour in cooler weather. It was a great tour combining Beltline walk, Atlanta history, and good tastings.

We really enjoyed the tour. The tour guide, Dan, was knowledgeable and entertaining. He provided relevant information about each stop on the tour and solicited questions from persons on the tour to make sure that the tour was educational and enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour for persons who want an encompassing overview of Atlanta.
