This foodie tour was so fun and delicious! A big shout out to Lindsay our tour guide who did a fabulous job. Loved all of the stops, learning about the history and discovering new places to eat. It was an easy walk through the historic district of downtown Richmond. We were a mature group (lol ) and had a great time. Thumbs up!!
