While entertaining family this past weekend, we decided to do our first walking food tour. This tour, with Neesey as our guide, could not have better met our expectations. The four of us were given a choice - to know or not to know where we were going. We all decided to allow ourselves to be surprised. And what a... More

We had a small group of 5 for a corporate outing today and we had a fantastic afternoon! We met Tony downtown and our first stop was Garland, followed by Lucette Grace, Gravy, Beasley's and the grand finale at Bittersweet. Tony was a great guide, gave us some great information about our stops and we all enjoyed great conversation over... More

Having lived in North Carolina for a few decades, even I was not aware of this great tour offering. For anyone wanting to get their feet wet in the higher end culinary specialties that our restaurants offer, I can't think of a better way to do it than through TCGFT. Groups meet in a central location (in our case a... More

This was a tremendous tour. Most of our group came from out of state, but we were all in North Carolina to visit a friend who just began grad school in Raleigh. It was a wonderful experience for all of us! We out-of-towners got a sampling of the food Raleigh has to offer with a side of history, while our... More

What a great way to explore a city! My man surprised me with a tour of his home city yesterday, and it was one of our best date nights yet! As a resident of Texas, and second time visitor of Raleigh, it was a great way to get to know the city a little better, while engaging in two of... More

This is a wonderful tour for the Triangle Transplant as well as the Native North Carolinian. We moved to the area six years ago, and this tour was a unique way to explore the City. I made our reservation and was asked if we had any food allergies or concerns. There was a woman in the group on a gluten... More

Restaurant week was going on in Raleigh the week of August 15th. Instead of choosing one restaurant to visit, I decided to do the tour. With the tour I visited 4 different venues which was great! The food portions were good and at each venue someone explained a little bit about the restaurant and the food we were served. Our... More
