Whether you are visiting Charlotte for the first time or consider it your hometown, you can't go wrong with a Feast Food Tour. We've lived here for 19 years, and just recently did the NoDa tour with them. We learned so much, ate such delicious food, and sampled excellent wine and local craft beers.

I can't quit talking about how much fun Saturday's NoDa tour was! I don't eat wheat, but my friends wanted to do this, so no problem. I figured I'd pick the topping off, etc. Forgot that when I signed up she asked about food issues. I was so shocked to have a gluten free special at each place!!!! Nice group,... More

There is nothing that my friends love more than engaging in the culinary culture while visiting new cities so when we stumbled upon FEAST food tours in Charlotte we had no reservations about signing up!

Kristi w/ Feast Food Tours does an amazing job of highlighting what NoDa is all about; the people and their passion for good food and drink. Being relatively new to the area I would say that this tour was the perfect blend of both, and the informational nuggets along the way only added to the experience. I've always believed that...

Kristi lined up 7 restaurants and I'd only been to 2 before, so it was great to hear from the chefs/owners and to sample beer, wine, espresso, pizza, flatbread, boozy cupcakes, fish tacos, more beer, and baked brie.

We went to 6 different restaurants, the chefs and staff were very hospitable, the food was good, wine tasting was good as well. Our tour who is also the owner of the company was excellent. They offer 6 different tours, it is worth making a longtime goal of completing all 6 tours. You left satisfied, more than enough food. Thanks... More
