Wonderful guide and great food! The guide had tons of information and interesting facts about each restaurant. The food was a generous portion at each place and I left the night very full. I would definitely go back to the restaurants we went to!

January 7 was my friend's birthday and we decided to do a food tour to celebrate. Even though we've been to many of the grandview restaurants, we learned a lot and had a great time. Even though it was 12 degrees.

We took the Short North food tour. It was a great experience getting to try foods from a number of local shops and restaurants. At many stops we were given something the chef recommended on that day, so you never know what it's going to be, but it was all delicious! Our guide was friendly and informative along the way....

Our guide, Andy, was very pleasant and cheerful throughout the tour. He was extremely knowledgeable about not only the food, but the history and culture of the people. He knew almost every person working in each restaurant and they seemed very happy to have us there. The food was excellent and quite representative of typical cuisine from the region.

What a wonderful way to experience several different hidden ethnic treasures in Columbus! We had southern Indian, Mexican, Nigerian, Vietnamese, and Somalian culinary flavors. Each place had its own distinct and enticing aromas, accompanied by interesting back stories of the cuisine and owners of the restaurants. The food portions were hearty and each dish had distinct flavors and spices. Several... More

I gave my mother (80 yrs) and my son (11 yrs) tickets for the AltEatsTour (would have purchased tickets for myself but the tour was sold out) and they absolutely loved it! Their comments about the tour included:delicious food especially at the Intercontinental Restaurant (Nigerian food) and the pastries at Panaderia Guadalupana, loved that the tour guide explained the cultural...
