10/10 food and history
May 2021 • Couples
Jamie was an amazing guide! She was able to relate to everyone in the group and tell the history of Atlanta in a fluid and conversational way. The food on the tour was so wonderful and tied to the history we learned - not to mention we were completely full by the end! 10/10 would book with Atlanta Food Walks again!

Exceeded expectations
May 2021
Kristin was our guide and she makes all of the difference- personable, professional and knowledgeable. She was well organized, kept moving at a comfortable pace and was sure to make everyone comfortable and included. The food stops were all excellent. A nice variety and all three restaurants were ready for us and provided right away. We have been on a different food tour in Atlanta and this surpassed it.

Marcy was our tour guide around Grant Park. My fiance and I really enjoyed it. We learned so much about the city that we grew up in. The Oakland cemetery was actually amazing. There is so much history there! Will definitely do this again!

Wonderful tour guide (Jamie) and experience!!!
Feb 2021 • Solo
This was a wonderful tour given by Jamie. You can tell her passion for history and Atlanta in the first 5 min of meeting her. It was such a joy to listen to her stories about Atlanta. I have never done a walking/food tour and this was by far my favorite thing to do while visiting. Jamie was such a joy to get to know and I enjoyed the energy she brought to the experience. I will definitely be doing this again on my next visit.
