This was the best food tour I have been on. There was such a great selection of foods and everything was wonderful. We even stopped by a local gallery as well, which was a great break from eating. I definitely recommend this tour!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Darien, High praise indeed! I'll be sure our tour company knows how much you enjoyed your time out in Pittsburgh. I'm glad you got to experience not only the great food in town, but the local artistry as well!  Cheers, Inah
My husband and I went on the Lawrenceville food tour this past Saturday. Cheryl did an amazing job of filling us in on the local history and the restoration that has been going on there. The food was wonderful and the people we met along the way were gracious and friendly.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Sue, Thank you for the kind words! I'll be sure to pass your compliments on to Cheryl. I hope you were able to make some wonderful new memories and found new spots to visit! All the best, Inah 
Very personable tour guide. Loved the area. We would like to take another tour.
The Lawrenceville Food Tour exceeded my expectations. The size of the tour group (about 14) was small enough for everyone to feel they had personal attention and could ask questions. We stopped at six establishments and ate a Greek salad plate, Greek Spanakopita, fried pierogi, house-made sausage sandwich, pasta with Vodka sauce, and a delightful gourmet cupcake over the course of the two-hour walking tour. The tour guide, Sylvia, is also the tour business owner. She provided interesting architectural and historical information about the Lawrenceville area and made sure that everyone was safe during the walk. Food restrictions were honored, and Sylvia made sure to seek our opinions about food quality after each stop. We also made a stop at one of the local art galleries, which was interesting but perhaps a little too long although Sylvia may have been trying to keep us on schedule with the arrival times expected by the food establishments. Even as long-time Pittsburgh residents, my husband and I found three eateries that were new to us. The only thing that could have made the experience totally perfect would have been to stop at the cupcake place last, but that was not possible because of the locations and business hours of the places. Sylvia did make it possible for us to get take-out containers for our cupcakes, and I would recommend doing that since all of the other small plates had to be eaten in the restaurants. My husband and I thought the price was reasonable for the large amount of food that was provided. We would definitely take one of the other tours, as well.
We had a wonderful time, and the tour guide was phenomenal.
