First time in Chester for many years so after trying a food and drink tour previously in Bath and enjoying it we thought we would give it another go when we visited Chester. The tour was an excellent way to spend 5 hours around Chester . Gareth took us to 7 different locations , all independent stores ranging from cheese sampling , wine tasting right through to Polish pierogi ...which was our favourite. All the owners/staff at each location were very welcoming and covid aware. The route Gareth took us around the food tour also meant that we saw many of the landmarks of Chester and Gareth provided a lot of information and history of the place while we walked which definitely added to the experience. Overall it was a great way to spend 4-5hours around Chester , but be warned do go hungry ! lol

We so enjoyed our Discover and Taste Chester. Gareth was knowledgable about Chester and very well prepared for our small group. Not only did we experience a variety of independent food hosts but also got to learn about the history of Chester.

The food tour of Chester was amazing! I ended up being alone on the tour and luckily Gareth didn't cancel on me :). Gareth took me to unique places that I wouldn’t have known to look for, if I was exploring by myself. The food was great, every place we went to, the people friendly and it was very clear Gareth has a great connection with them, which in turn, made them super engaging with me. Gareth tour is a great combination of food and city walk. We eat, we walked, we talked. The walk through the historic city was beautiful and helped walk off the food between places, a great balance between food and breaks. Gareth is passionate and has a lot of knowledge of Chester and it’s history. He gave lots of tips and recommendations about things to do, eat and see. And overall, even tough I was alone, and it could have been awkward, we had a great connection, Gareth was friendly, open and super interesting. It felt like spending a morning with a very knowledgeable friend :). Highly recommended!!

The food tour of Chester was brilliant. Although we had been to Chester on a number of occasions before, we had been to the usual places that people visit. Gareth took us to unique places that we certainly wouldn’t have gone in had we been exploring ourselves. Each and every location we visited provided us with great food which we probably wouldn’t have known about without Gareth. There wasn’t one thing we didn’t enjoy trying and would have 99% of it again (just maybe not the very strong cheese!). Gareth is passionate about what he does and shares his knowledge of Chester and it’s history along the way. He points out many things along the way which many people have probably walked past for years without noticing it understanding it’s significance. We had a brilliant afternoon, ate some gorgeous food, discovered many places to which we will no doubt return and could not recommend it enough.

We had a great morning with Gareth, enjoying plenty of food, a nice walk (not too far!) and just the right amount of history (again, not too much!)
