Culinary Tours are the best way to learn about the cities you visit! - The tour was excellent. Alex was a wonderful host that provided us with insights into Chattanooga's past and walked us through great sections of downtown. It was like being on a food network tour. The samplings at each restaurant were delicious and the finishing touch was a rooftop bar with tapas and cocktails, overlooking the river. We would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to enjoy the culinary side of DT Chattanooga. Thank you Alex!

FUN WITH CHATT TASTE!! - This is our fourth Chatt Taste tour! We had Keith as our tour guide this time, and oh my gosh, if you want a good time with a guy who is so very sweet and personable and will show you a fun time, he is the one! The Chatt Taste Food Tour food was amazing. Building new friendships was so much fun, and we always have a ball when we do Chatt Taste! It’s great for a gift or to do as a date night with the one you love! WE LOVE BRIANA AND KEITH OF CHATT TASTE!!!

Disappointing Culinary Experience - The food was overall very good. We enjoyed the variety. However, our main dissatisfaction was with Sara the guide. She was very soft spoken and as many times as asked, we could not hear what she was saying. In furtherance of that, she never explained any of the foods or locations and why any of them were even chosen. She gave no history of the Chattanooga food scene. At all of the locations, it was felt that they did not know we were coming because they were not prepared. Also felt the tour was rushed. At the first location, the first people served were finished before the last few were even served. At a few of the locations, some of us were not even finished eating when it was time to leave. Overall, it was not a culinary tour experience, it was a quick bite feeding.
