Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Koffi! What a fabulous way for you to explore the riches of Carytown! It sounds like you took home a stomach full of delicious food and a mind full of historical facts. Tour with us again soon! Best, Courtney
Nice variety of good food. Nice sized portions. Carytown was a fun and eclectic place.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Seems like an all around nice time! Glad you enjoyed your time tasting your way around Carytown! Best, Jake.
Amazingly fun!! Erin is so friendly and knowledgeable about the eats on Cary St. Some of us are “Foodies” and were not disappointed. She was sensitive to our group’s needs because one of our friends had a cast on her foot. We were pleased with the menu choices and a few pleasant surprises in the way of flavor combinations!! I’m definitely going to recommend this tour to all my friends because it was a great experience!!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Mona, Amazing! I'm so glad to hear that the tour was fun for all, even the sometimes hard-to-please foodies! And wow, it sounds like Erin went above and beyond - I'll of course pass your compliments along. Thanks so much for spreading the word, and we look forward to getting you out on another fun adventure! Cheers, Inah
Overall very good. It was unfortunate that 2 consecutive restaurants served exactly the same food - tomato soup and toasted cheese sandwich!! Also it was a little disappointing that the Broken Tulip provided just a cup of soup as well. Perhaps with the Richmond summer heat, some additional coordination with the restaurants is needed so that guests dont have 3 restaurants serving hot soup!!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Trevor, Thank you for taking the time to write in about your experience. While I'm glad you enjoyed the tour for the most part, the main attraction is definitely the food and unfortunately it sounds like what you were served is certainly not what is advertised. The goal of the tour is show you the best that Carytown has to offer and while I know that the menu is subject to change, I agree that on a hot summer day in Virginia, they can certainly do better than just soup. I'll definitely pass your feedback on to our tour partner to better serve future guests. I know that your tour has come and gone, and future improvements would be of little help to you, but we would love to get you out on another adventure, on us. I have placed the full value of your voucher back into your account for use towards future experiences - please let me know if you have any questions or concerns! All the best, Inah
