The Historic Germantown neighborhood was once known for butchers, bakers and Beer Makers. Now it is a local favorite for great food. You’ll stroll through the Bicentennial Mall–a favorite destination–then past Victorian homes on brick sidewalks. You’ll be amazed at some of our awe-inspiring murals. We’ll delight you with favorites like pulled pork barbecue, hot chicken and irresistible artisan-made sweets, among other offerings.

Awesome Host

Dean was an awesome host from the moment we booked with quick, friendly communications and updates regarding the December unusual cold weather forecast. He was flexible in offering us a secondary tour date due to the weather, and we are grateful for that flexibility because the experience was fun, interesting, small group personalized. and included not just food but laughs too.

A Definite Must-Do When Visiting Nashville! Review of Historic Nashville Food Tour

Me and my husband saw Nashville for the first time in August and we did the Historic Food Tour. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. We ate some AMAZING food from a few of the best locally owned restaurants in Nashville. And had so much fun learning about the city as we walked through the beautifully arboraceous Germantown. I definitely recommend this tour, it was a great time ! Date of experience :Aug 2022

Historic Nashville Food Tour Local Tastes of Nashville

We were looking for something to do on our last day in Nashville and luckily chose the historic Germantown food tour. Our guide Dean was amazing. Very knowledgeable and a great ambassador for Nashville. Everyone liked something different, whether it was some historical tidbit that Dean provided or one of the many food options we tried. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Nashville. I am now researching menna cheese recipes. 9/13/2022

Music City Walking Food Tour Local Tastes of Nashville Sept 2022

I wish I would have done this tour the first day I was in Nashville! Our tour guide Ellen knew so much about the city and had so so many recommendations for places to go. She also shared the coolest facts about Nashville that made the city even cooler. Ate some of the best food I’ve ever had with some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met. I can’t recommend this experience enough!
