Walking backward while talking is useful for leading a tour, demonstrating a moonwalk, or retreating from a room full of ominously staring toddlers. See the reverse saunter put to good use with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a two-hour culinary walking tour with Knoxville Food Tours, departing from the Knoxville Visitor Center (a $39 value).

Knoxville Food Tours' two walking expeditions familiarize taste buds with the city's culinary landscape, stopping at a diverse selection of local food vendors for up to 10 food samples. During the Gay Street tour on Fridays (just under 1 mile), a knowledgeable guide fills brain buckets with historical tidbits on stops that include the herbivore-friendly The Bistro at the Bijou, the southern-style Sapphire, and the locally sourced The Parlor. Guests can cool off after a day of palate pushups with a sample of glacial treats from the tour's stop at Coolato Gelato. On Sundays, The Market Square tour ventures approximately a half mile to find café fare at Cocoa Moon, Spanish tapas at Sangria's, and fresh fare at La Costa. Restaurant owners and chefs will occasionally be available to field questions from the tourists about the history of their businesses and sometimes pass out specially made scratch 'n' lick booklets.

Knoxville Food Tours

Knoxville Food Tours' squadron of knowledgeable guides pilots pedestrians through downtown Knoxville's eclectic cache of local eateries, introducing locals and visitors alike to a smattering of tasty cuisine during tours that have garnered press from outlets such as the Knoxville News Sentinel. Each walking tour leads participants to a rotating lineup of local haunts, where they'll enjoy drinks and sample local fare such as pastries, pizza, sushi, vegetarian cuisine, and produce from nearby farmers. At each stop on the excursion, chefs and restaurateurs proffer friendly, insightful culinary conversation to bolster the enlightening nuggets of historical information dispensed by the well-informed guides or their sentient atlases.

This is a fun tour. The restaurants on the Sunday tour were wonderful. Paula is a great guide, providing us with interesting information on the restaurants and sights we saw on the way. My husband and I are anxious to go on more of these tours.
