During the 2.5-hour downtown St. Petersburg food tour professional-foodie guides lead small groups to some of downtown's most beloved eateries. There are usually five to seven stops. You might sample tea at The Hooker Tea Company, munch on artisan pizza at Wood Fired Pizza, or indulge in Belgian chocolate at Sweet Divas.
Similarly, the Gulfport Arts District tour spotlights this seaside area's eclectic cuisine. Stops might include Tangelo's Grille for cuban sandwiches or The Village Pub for fish and chips.
On the gourmet-store tour, you'll stop at four to six local stores, where shop owners share tips and secrets, along with mouth-watering morsels.
As a young girl in England, Deborah Molise could often be found sprawled out on a blanket, munching finger foods at a picnic. Years later, her fond childhood memories have helped inspire foodie tours and customized birthday picnics for adults and children at Eat.Sip.Indulge.
Other food tours include an art and brunch tour that pairs mimosas and brunch with visits to galleries featuring local artists and the Gulfport & Beach Foodie Tour, which combines authentic Southern restaurants, home-brewed beer, and delicious Italian desserts.
By the time we finished, I was sooo full I thought I'd pop. I will definitely patron those eateries in the future.Beth H., 7/27/12
We loved each and every stop. Not only was it a great time, but it was a awesome advertisement for the town itself, which is lovely.Susie_Smith1, 9/10/12
