Tours Around Chester has just celebrated its 2nd anniversary of its Award winning Taste of Chester Food Tours
‘Well…time has flown by! Having enjoyed many overseas food tour experiences whilst on family holidays, I spent 6 months planning a Chester Food Walking Tour Experience in late 2017/early 2018. Our city has so many superb food and drink independents, creating a food tour was a ‘no brainer’. That together with the fascinating history and numerous historical landmarks, it was so exciting to launch.
Most tour guests are local – Cestrians, or from Cheshire, Wales, Wirral, Liverpool, and Manchester. I also have visitors from all over the globe and it’s a pleasure and great fun to take everyone on the tour. It’s fascinating to observe how guests local to the city haven’t visited and tried the food/drink independents we visit on each tour. The feedback since starting has been fantastic and it’s great that the food tours are number 1 traveller ranked on TripAdvisor and Award Winning.
Normally, whatever the weather, the tours keep on operating, and during the 3-4hour tour, guests enjoy at least 6 food/drink stops. Guests arrive hungry and leave full. It’s the perfect way to explore and learn about Chester, whilst tasting fantastic food/drink from the city’s finest independents, many of whom are off the beaten track. It’s the ideal treat experience for friends and family and gift vouchers are very popular.
Whilst, the lockdown has put tours temporarily on hold, the tours should restart in July. I’ve been in continual contact with my retail partners and we are looking forward to welcoming tour guests once more soon’. Gareth Boyd – Founder
