TripAdvisor Reviews
1. During our tour, we visited several studios/galleries and three local, privately owned restaurants -- all stops were fantastic! We enjoyed food samples from Arts and Eats, as well as Ortygia and Sugar Cubed. Each sampling was unique and outstanding! Our tour concluded at Motorworks Brewery with a beer (included in the tour price) and a behind-the-scenes brewery tour. Neal Finelli, with Taste Magazine, put together an amazing tour and provided a memorable afternoon. Looking forward to joining another tour in the near future!

2. Tour #1 is the Artistic Foodie Tour offered on Thursdays. A group of 8 of our friends just completed this wonderful outing. Our friendly and knowledgeable guides escorted us on a scenic walking tour of the Village of the Arts, introduced us to local shop owners and included plenty of photo ops. The outstanding food and beverages were generous in amount, creatively presented, well-balanced in flavor, and the chefs were very attentive and engaging. This Foodie tour is a true value, well worth the price of admission!
