Outstanding tour! I have been on many food tours in both the US and in Europe and have to say this one was at the top. Laura has done an excellent job picking out a variety of types and styles of restaurants and food. She also provides a vast array of historical information about Lexington during the tour and places we might wont to visit after the tour. She's loads of fun and you can't go wrong with this tour. The bottle of water and fabric backpack were a welcome addition.

What a wonderful tour of downtown restaurants! Excellent samplings of their food and facilities. Laura was an awesome your guide - she knew her history and was very familiar with each restaurant and chef and/or owner..Wish we had taken the tour on our first day in Lexington!

We had Laura's first tour of the season 2013 and it was awesome! Came for a weekend from Cincinnati with friends and really had an amazing time- nice to walk the city from place to place and got LOTS of great historical information and GREAT food! I had never been on a food tour and I HIGHLY recommend this tour!! My daughter graduated from UK so I've visited the city often BUT this was so fun and really informational!! Laura made the tour very upbeat and took care of all the details, the places we went were all different - gourmet, high style, casual and off the beaten path. Delicious sampling of food, more than I expected!! We even took a photo at the Mayor's front door. She also gave us tons of extra information for places we could go for dinner, unique shopping places etc. She made us feel welcome and took great care of us- GO ON THE TOUR!!!

Group of gal pals visiting Lexington enjoyed the tour around downtown Lexington. Laura was a great guide and the spots we stopped at were interesting and diverse. Really liked the historic tidbits of info shared around Gratz Park. Laura also provided lots of great recommendations of other restaurants we could visit along the way that were not part of the tour.

Last year we took the Downtown/Saturday tour so this year we tried the Sunday tour. Again, we were delighted with the samplings, history lesson, and stroll through the "hopping" Jefferson Street area. Laura is such a delightful guide. On the hot day, she treated all attendees to a sample of local cupcakes and ice cream she had carried in a cooler! What a doll! With the spring Keeneland meet coming up, take a break from the track and visit with Laura. She will lead you to the best samplings of downtown Lexington's restaurants and give you an insightful glimpse into Lexington's history.
