This tour starts at 4th Street Live, Louisville’s revitalized entertainment district. As we walk down 4th street, you will learn about the history of Louisville and how Al Capone and F. Scott Fitzgerald spent their time in the river city. You will sample locally made foods and beverages that will awaken your palate and expand your love of our food scene. We’ll try a new take on the “hot brown”, try food from a James Beard House guest Chef Zach Young and wrap up the tour at the world’s only bourbon certified chocolatier. It’s a great way to explore the area stress free in a fun relaxed atmosphere.

We conduct our tours regardless of the weather, rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, we will be able to go inside most if not all of the locations on the tour. When in route between locations we will leverage several stopping points that are under cover and out of the weather. We also try to provide ponchos in case of sudden weather changes or if you do not have your own umbrella. However, we recommend you check the weather conditions for your tour day and dress appropriately.
Accommodations can often be made for those individuals with special dietary needs. We request that you notify us when purchasing your tickets if you are a vegetarian, have food allergies (such as gluten free or dairy free) and we will make every effort to accommodate you. However, substitutions may not be available at all tasting locations. We are sorry for the inconvenience
