Historic Roswell 9/8/12 - Atlanta Culinary Tours
Saturday, September 8, 2012 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
Roswell, United States
Join us for our Tasting Tour of Historic Roswell
In case you’ve not been paying attention, Roswell has become quite the foodie Mecca! The Historic downtown area is bursting with charming shops, pedestrian friendly streets and some amazing restaurants and food related businesses. The quality and variety of cuisine in Roswell has never been better. And who better to show this gem than Atlanta Culinary Tours, right? Come with us and learn the history of the area while sampling at restaurants, markets, and meeting the owners and chefs that make this area shine.
Though the tour line up can change slightly from month to month, we visit and sample at some of these businesses:
- Rice—Thai meets American, combined with original art.
- Table & Main–American cuisine with a Southern flair.
- Oli & Ve— gourmet olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
- The Fickle Pickle– located in a cozy 1890′s Victorian house, now a deli and the pickles are homemade.
- Artisan Foods Bakery & Cafè — the taste of homemade, with fresh and healthy ingredients.
- Lazaro's Cuban restaurant
This sampling tour is personally led by Erin Susan Parks, a Roswell business owner with a massage therapist in private practice at Plum Tree Yoga Center in Historic Roswell. She’s lived in Roswell for 7 years. Erin is an experienced guide, leading tours in Spain with Pathways Tours.
Historic Roswell is every 2nd Saturday, 2p. It is a walking tour with 1.5-2 miles of walking, mostly on paved surfaces. Allow at least 3 hours for the tour, and Come Hungry!
How large are the tour groups?
The number of people will vary depending on the tour, but most groups will be limited to no more than 16. This makes the tour more manageable for both the guides and the restaurants.
How much does a tour cost?
Price of each tour is listed on its description page. Pricing for private or custom tours will vary. Please contact us to discuss private tour pricing.
What should I wear?
Most of our tours are walking tours, so wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes. It’s not a good idea to wear high heels or dress shoes. Check the weather on the day of your tour and dress appropriately – we’ll conduct our tours hot, cold, rain or shine. Don’t forget sunglasses, sunscreen, hats, coats or umbrellas depending on the weather. We will only cancel or reschedule if weather conditions are dangerous - we’ll contact you by email if this occurs.
Can I bring my camera?
Sure! There are lots of opportunities to take pictures during the tours.
Can I bring my dog?
Sorry, no pets. We’re visiting restaurants, and pets aren’t allowed unless they are service dogs.
Can I bring my kids?
Probably no. You’ll have to make that call, based on your child’s age/maturity, but most of our tours are not set up for children. The samplings at some of the restaurants may feature alcohol or may not suit the palate of children that are “particular.” If you’re not sure, then don’t.
How much food will we be eating?
Word to the wise: Come Hungry! There are enough tastings that most people will not need a meal afterwards. If you’re still hungry once the tour is over, feel free to go back to your favorite stop for more!
I have allergies!
We’re not doctors, but if you have allergies or sensitivities to any foods or items used in food production, it’s safe to assume that absolutely everything served on this tour is or contains an allergen of some sort. We encourage you to use the same discretion that has enabled you to live a full and healthy life to this point!
Will I need to bring cash?
Our tours are all inclusive, but it’s a good idea to have some extra cash on hand for souvenirs, gifts, an extra dessert to bring home, etc.
When should I arrive for the tour?
It’s very important that you arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled start time. We leave on time. If you’re running late, your confirmation will have a contact number to call.
Should I tip my tour guide?
In the tourism industry, it is customary to tip your guide. For Private Tours, a gratuity will be added to your total cost.
I need to cancel/reschedule. Is that a problem?
Not if you do it more than 72 hours in advance. We have to let all of the establishments we are visiting know how many people we’re bringing so they can accommodate the tour. Rescheduling can be tricky because we are often sold out months in advance. If you can’t make it, you’re welcome to give your reservation to someone else, however – just let us know email@example.com!
