Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the history and the historical sites we visited in our travels. Enjoyed the open dialogue and knowledge shared by other participants, as well. The food was good too!


We were intrigued by the history of the area (the fountain was moved at one point) in addition to the wonderful food and beverage experiences.


Krista was a wonderful tour guide, very personable and knowledgeable. The restaurants were limited as a result of the pandemic however we felt we received a full tour with lots of yummy food.


Our tour guide, Krista, was pleasant and energetic. We sense, because of changes from Covid, the restaurant choices were not their first choices. Tamale was great; last stop pastry was horrible (since when is a Puff Pastry dark brown?) Tour was not Fountain Square; it was the Fletcher area. Historical sharing was OK.

Food was excellent and guide was very good. We tried several food items I had never heard of or tried and liked them all. Rook had great food and New Day had awesome drinks. To make it 5 star I would make a few changes. First: when we arrived at the meeting place no one was there. When we asked people there about the tour no one knew anything about it. Our tour guide was not there early, like they asked us to be. The other item: Our first stop was at New Day for some hard ciders and mead. This is about 2 pm. They tell you not to eat lunch, as there is much food to sample. But starting out with 6 beer samples on an empty stomach and hiking quite a way in the 90 degree heat was a little rough. They need to save the tasting until after one or both of the food stops.

We were supposed to go on the Mass Ave tour but got bumped, so we decided to take the Fountain Square tour instead and had a fantastic time. My wife and I have been on a few other food tours in other cities and this one ranks right up there with any of them. All the restaurants were great! We were very surprised at the size of the meads samples :D and the appetitizers at Rook were our favorite. Dani did a great job and is extremely personable and friendly which pretty much can be said for the people of Indy by and large. I go to Indy quite often for business and will definitely make plans to go Duckpin bowling and to Rook the next time we are in town.


We had a great time. Our guide was waiting for us at the specified location when we got there, 15 minutes early. He was personable and was up front that we were his first tour. He was knowledgeable and answered all of our questions without hesitation. We were a large adult cousins group, plus 2 additional people joined us, so he had his hands full. I also had a few email issues getting specifics, but called the number I was given for the Taste of Indy tours and was pleasantly surprised on how wonderful my contact was and was given her personal cell if I had any other issues the day of. Excellent customer service! I would rate this tour a 10! Thank you!


I’ve been on several food tours in other cities and always felt like I got a history of the neighborhood and had a little bit of an understanding how it fits into the rest of the city. Today, our tour pretty much focused on the four restaurants we visited and recommendations about other restaurants in the area. I don’t feel that I know Fountain Square or it’s history at all or how it compares to the rest of Indy. Our guide was VERY nice and accommodating, she just wasn’t a tour guide. It was like visiting four restaurants with a nice friend. We visited a mead place, two Asian restaurants and a chocolatier. With the wide variety of restaurants, why two Asian restaurants for the main part of our meal? Pad Thai and dumplings at the Thai place seemed like a really mundane choice and something everyone had already had. Very nice guide who has great potential, she just needs to be able to tell a better story, impart more information and act like a guide as opposed to a friend who just melds into the group.

On the beautiful Spring Saturday of April 13, my wife and I ENJOYED the Fountain Square Tour with 14 other people. The ages ran from mid-20's to mid-70's. Dani , our fantastic leader had us "clicked" together within minutes. Dani is SO knowledgeable, full of love for Fountain Square! The conversations between friends and total strangers as we "tasted" Fountain Square was interesting and amazing. And the chocolate at the end of the tour was the "icing on the cake"!


I bought tickets to this tour for my boyfriend's birthday. Our tour guide Dani was amazing and super knowledgeable. The food was great and filling. I also now have a new favorite food thanks to this tour! As a vegetarian/non-drinker, they were able to accommodate my needs, and I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything. I would definitely do one of their other tours after having done this one.
