Best Tour Ever
I just want to thank Harper for an extraordinary experience. We did a similar tour in 2019 with his daughter Tailor and he provided us with the same if not more energy. We enjoyed Memphis history and how it developed into what it is today. The choice of restaurants complimented the tour and tantalized our taste buds. He was professional respected our time. He was personable and complimented our needs. Cannot wait to take this tour again.

A sample of food fun!
Absolutely a must do when visiting Memphis. Harper was our guide and he did an excellent job describing the BBQ rib cooking process as we sampled each variety along the tour. He gave us some interesting Memphis history along the way. Portions were appropriate for each of the 5 stops. We were definitely full after this 4 hour tour.

Amazing! You can't go wrong!
Jul 2021 • Family
Run, don't walk to book this food tour! We had the BBQ tour with Harper and he was an amazing guide. We loved all the history he was able to share, as well as his experience as a pit master. The fact that days later, our teenage son commented that he enjoyed Harper's company, speaks loads of the quality of the tour. Because we were able to try/learn about different types of restaurants, when it was time for our next meal, we didn't hem and haw on where to go since we had an idea on what we liked. Fabulous company!

Adventure in Beale Street Specialties
Jul 2021
This tour is not for those on a low-fat diet. Also, since all the restaurants were on the same block, there was very little walking. However, our guide Taylor, gave us an excellent run-down on the history of the area, some of the history of Memphis, and a good understanding of the ingredients and cooking methods for each dish, which were all local specialties of the area and all delicious. Though I would not have tried most of these items, e.g. a deep-fried cheeseburger, they tasted great and the tour was quite an adventure. Expect to go over your calorie limit.

Taylor, or host, was fantastic. Not only was her knowledge of the food outstanding but her ability to pair food choices with the history of Memphis was incredible.

Food Tour With Bonus History Lesson
Jun 2021
I knew we were going on a walking food tour, but I did not know we were going to get an informative history lesson. First, Harper is an exceptional tour guide. Brought us to many different restaurants for a generous taste of their best foods. In between, we walked to many historic areas through downtown Memphis and given a synopsis of the history behind the city. I learned so much, Harper did it in such an interesting way and I devoured his information just as much as I devoured the delicious BBQ! Harper has such a charismatic personality and holds your attention the entire time. Do not miss this tour!!!

BBQ with a history tour!
My wife and I came to Memphis to see her favorite singer Elvis. She booked this tour from a suggestion from a tourbook of Memphis. You will not be disappointed! Excellent walking tour with Harper! We walked at 2.5 miles total. No waiting in lines at door! Quickly seated and samples brought to you! Visited Loraine Hotel, civil rights museum on your. Many murals explained about history of Memphis. Very difficult to get transportation around! Ie Uber/Lyft or taxi. Waited for over an hour. Fantastic tour. Fantastic food!!! Please check out there other future tours! Thanks again for a memorable day!

Can not purchase single ticket
Absolutely terrible that you don’t cater to solo travelers. I can only book two tickets, no option for one. It’s 2021 and people travel alone.

Hi Emily, I am sorry that you experienced some problems trying to book with us yesterday, but I wish you would have contacted us because we do cater to solo travelers all the time! The problem you ran into was most likely because of two reasons: we do have a minimum of 2 guests to book and that tour had not been booked by anyone yet, or you booked through a different platform that isn’t our website. The reason we have a minimum of 2 guests is because a full tour for just one person is a lot of food!! But we have catered to solo travelers many times by personally booking them on a tour or giving them a private mini tour at a lower price. Again, I apologize you had problems booking, but I wish you would have contacted us because we would have taken care of you and gotten you on one of our tours. Call me at 901-482-7555 and if you’re still in town, I’d love for you to join one of our food tours or take one by yourself. Happy 4th of July! Taylor Goode
