  • I've lived in Atlanta for over 30 years and have never been to Oakland cemetery. It was so interesting and our guide, Kristen was great. Engaging and informative and the food was amazing.

  • The History of the Tour and the Food Tastings was excellent. Our Tour Guide (Jamie) was second to none.

  • Our guide did a wonderful job bringing the history of Atlanta to life. The food was excellent and really enjoyed meeting everyone on the tour

  • We had such a fun group and Kristen was able to get everyone involved. Loved the theatrics! Great for teenagers and adults.

  • The tour guide had a lot of energy and was very knowledgeable. The food samples were substantial and varied. Tour through cemetery was unexpected (maybe I missed it in the description) but informative.

  • Amazing tour! Great history sharing, food was delicious and our tour guides Kristin and Kevin were fun, knowledgeable and engaging. Our two 16 year old daughters had a blast!

  • The tour was amazing. Our tour guide, Christin, was awesome. Enjoy the time. Food and drink were good

  • Fun to learn about Grant Park history and the role in Atlanta’s early roots. Margaret was friendly and informative and the neighborhood food fare was great

  • Loved the restaurants and would go back to each one. Loved all the history I learned about Atlanta. I just moved to Atlanta and really enjoyed going through the cemetery.

  • Although we enjoyed the tour. I am still waiting to receive the email with the pictures that were taken by Margaret as promised. Disappointing.
