As first time visitors to Atlanta we were thrilled to stumble upon this Food Tour of the Ponce Market. It covers the history, some great and very filling food stops and a tour down the trail to work off some of the calories. We were fascinated by the baseball connection as well as the history of the surrounding area. Our guide David was personable, answered all our questions and pointed out so many interesting features we would not have noticed. The variety of food was a big plus. Do not eat breakfast before you go on this tour!!!

This was an excellent tour. Thanks to our very knowledgeable tour guide, Emily! I learned a lot, and hope to repeat portions of the tour in the future, when federal buildings are open again.
