Durham Walking Food Tour
Discover Durham's historic past and capture the flavor of the culinary present.
On this guided journey through the streets of downtown Durham we'll be pausing numerous times for sample tastings and personal tales from some of the area's most unique, hidden culinary gems. Along the way, you'll gain some new insights of Durham's "gritty", "eclectic", blue-collar, tobacco & textile roots that are the foundation for this community's now thriving leadership role in medicine, the performing arts and regional cuisine.
The restaurant scene in Durham is thriving and diverse. We operate 2 different tours in downtown Durham and usually alternate between them depending upon schedules and availability.
We'll visit 6-7 different local establishments*, including...
- One of downtown Durham's iconic Italian restaurants that just moved to a new West Village location ...
local place where you can count on nightly fresh fish specials
