A fun walking food tasting tour! This culinary adventure is a treat for all the senses. Along the way are stops at restaurants where you will taste the foods of the area's best and most popular restaurants. From the finest dining in town to the hidden gems, you will get a multi-sensory view of the culture and local flavor. It's a lovely stroll with a side dish of history, a dash of culture and a taste of the Bluegrass.

We spent a lovely afternoon walking around Lexington and tasting foods and drinks for some of the local restaurants. We also learned about some of the other restaurants so we had ourselves a list of places to return to before we left town. Our tour guide was delightful, and told us many interesting things about the history of the city... More

I learned so many little interesting tidbits! We visited some restaurants that I will definitely be returning to, but we also learned about tons of places that I'd love to try... More

I didn't realize how much there was to the downtown culinary scene until I took this tour. Being native to Lexington, I had been downtown to dine previously, but taking this tour helped me discover new hidden gems that I wouldn't have known about otherwise. My girlfriends and I took the tour and not only did we have a great... More

While our group (only one other couple) may have been small, we loved the personable nature of the experience. We enjoyed meeting the local couple wanting to learn more of their home town. Laura was extremely personable and knowledge of the restaurants she shared with us. This tour satisfied our 'foodie' nature and was a wonderful way to experience 6... More

After taking this tour with the excellent guide Laura, you will want to spend a week in Lexington! The tour was a perfect blend of history and restaurant tastings, as well as information on other places to visit in the downtown area. The restaurant choices were varied and all very interesting! Our group had some cool surprises along the way... More

While planning a long weekend to the city I found this tour on-line. My husband & I had a wonderful time strolling through this charming neighborhood and sampling gourmet delights. Our tour guide Laura was very informative and personable. It's obvious that she loves Lexington and good food. It's true that you can't judge a book by it's cover because... More

On July 25th we did the Bleu Plate Tour of Lexington. It was a great tour of local restaurants with some history of Lexington thrown in. You don't need to eat before doing this tour. We sampled food at each restaurant and left with a new list of restaurants to visit again.
