My husband and I received a gift certificate for Tasting Tours for Christmas. We love St. Augustine and have visited many times over the years. We chose to use our gift certificate this weekend to celebrate our 41 wedding anniversary. We had no idea what to expect because this was our first strolling culinary tour. If we could choose one word to describe the day, it would be amazing. Ginger, our guide, made the event special from the text the morning of until the follow up of pictures and gratitude the next morning. The couple that shared the tour with us lived very close to where we live. We had so much in common and will probably stay in touch. Ginger went the extra mile to point out unique St. Augustine treasures and history. As I stated, we have been to the city many times and taken both trolley and horse carriage tours. We learned a lot and experienced new things. Each stop was unique. We visited Athenas, Ancient Olive, Old City restaurant, the Tasting Tour Suite, and Cutie pies. The food and wine pairings were wonderful. The Tasting Tour Suite, located in the Treasury Building on the fifth floor, was a must see. It had magnificent views from three different angles of the city. The culinary team went all out with a wine lesson and some scrumptious and elegant charcuterie bites.
They made it fun. We are grateful for Ginger, her team, and our new friends.
We would highly recommend this tour if you are wanting to create a St. Augustine stroll to remember.
