In what can only be described as a paradise for foodies, a number of North Carolina cities offer a unique way to introduce their signature cuisines, Gourmet Food Tours. Chapel Hill is one of the places that features walking tours as well as corporate and private tours.
Visitors will not only dine at a number of restaurants, but they will also have the opportunity to meet the chefs and learn about the area while enjoying delicious local food. Prices are subject to change at any time, but they are currently about $51 for an afternoon tasting tour and $66 for the cocktail hour.
If you are new to the area, the Taste Carolina Gourmet Food Tours provide an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with the restaurants in Chapel Hill.
When you take a tour, dress for the weather as these are rain or shine events. Arrive at your starting point early to make sure everyone arrives at the first establishment. Be sure to bring identification if you are planning to drink alcoholic beverages. Wear comfortable shoes as the tours average between two and three miles and last from three to three-and-a-half hours.
Tours generally take place on Saturdays, and all require advance registration. Food, drinks, and even gratuity are included in the ticket price, making gift certificates a thoughtful choice for family and friends.
The restaurants in Chapel Hill that you will experience on a Taste Carolina Gourmet Food Tour are generally about ten minutes south of our Chapel Hill North apartments via the NC-86 South. If you would like a tour of our luxury apartment homes, contact us.
