I highly recommend this tour. We had a great night eating and laughing our way thru KC. We even got to go back in the kitchen and meet the pitmaster and check out the smoker at one place. Will definitely do this again with another group for sure

This was a fun and filling way to enjoy my first visit to KC. The tour guides were awesome with lots of great KC BBQ history and trivia. It was also a great group and we met people from all over the country who, like us, were in town for the Chiefs game. We made three stops.

Great guide and driver. You see sights that are interesting and the food is great. We ate breakfast and were stuffed by the end of the tour. You can try new beers you may not want to buy an entire case. Țry all the sauces and definitely get some pie at Gates's!
