Q. Do I have to purchase tickets in advance? Can I pay cash?
Tickets must be purchased in advance as we need to prepare our suppliers so they can offer great tastings when we arrive. To maximize your chances of getting the day, time, and number of tickets you prefer, please book well in advance. Eat.Walk.Talk Bristol Food Tour tickets can be purchased on our website. We accept Visa and Mastercard. Cash is not accepted.
Q. If a food tour is sold out, can I get on a waiting list?
A waiting list function isn't currently available but should you want to be considered if a cancellation occurs please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Q. How much food is served on the food tour?
Eat.Walk.Talk Bristol Food Tour serves enough food that for most participants, a meal afterwards is not always necessary but I'm aware appetites vary . Think of it as a progressive meal; food and drink tastings paired with architectural, cultural, and historical anecdotes, such that most participants end up comfortably full at the end of the tour. Please note, our Eat.Walk.Talk Bristol Food Tour are not intended to replace breakfast and lunch combined, so please consider eating later in the day.
Q. How much walking is involved? Is it a fast-paced tour?
The Eat.Walk.Talk Bristol Food Tour runs for approx 3.5 hours. Participants can expect to be standing or walking for the majority of the time. We walk at a moderate pace, total distance is about 4km along normal sidewalks, the route is mostly flat but there are some small inclines.
Q. Do your tours have anything to offer a native?
I have lived here for 11 years and am always discovering new places to visit, overlooked history and food gems. You never know what you will find?
Q. Does the Tour Guide accept gratuities?
In the UK gratuities are less a part of our way of life than in many countries and we would be happy to receive a thank you or maybe tell those TripAdvisor people you had a 5* experience :-)
Q. What if I have dietary restrictions or allergies?
We are able to offer vegetarian and pescetarian tastings on all of our tours!
As all our food and drink tastings are arranged in advance, simply use the prompt to specify your order when you purchase your ticket online. Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee tastings for other dietary restrictions or allergies at all tasting locations, but our expert tour guides will inform you of the ingredients in each dish.
Q. Can I shop during the tour?
We ask that you please wait to shop until after the tour so that we can stay on schedule and continue with the tour and food tastings in a timely manner. The tours are on a schedule to arrive at each tasting location at prearranged times, therefore, it is important to stay on schedule so the tastings can be enjoyed at its freshest for everyone's enjoyment.
Q. When is the best time to take the tour?
Expert tip: If you are visiting from out of town, we highly recommend taking our Eat.Walk.Talk Bristol Food Tour at the beginning of your visit! This way, you'll quickly gain your bearings in the city, collect recommendations from your local tour guide, and have plenty of time to revisit the wonderful places you discover during the tour!
Q. What about taking children on the tour?
Parents, who know their children best, should assess the situation individually. Since there is a lot of standing and walking, please consider this when deciding whether the tour is appropriate for your child.
Please note that children over the age of 3 will have to purchase a ticket to attend, regardless of whether they will be participating in the tastings.
Q. Is the tour wheelchair and baby stroller accessible?
For the most part the tour route is along normal sidewalks and pathways but these do vary in quality from cobbles to tarmac. There are a few small inclines too. If you are unsure please use the contact form to get a better idea of any issues you may face.
