Good tour, Capital Bee needs more food items to go with the honey. At least one good one. Seems odd that it's on a food tour. Tour guide very nice and personable.

The tour was great. We did not enjoy the stop at the convince store, Fancy Parkers, (like stopping at a gas station) with the over cooked dry pork chop. Everything else was amazing. Our tour guide was very helpful and informative.

Our tour guide was country. She was great! We really enjoyed the food. The only stop that wasn’t that great was the bee company Because it took up a lot of time and we received a micro piece of cheese. And all the other samples were just general public samples. So we felt like that was a little bit of a rip off

#1 Bailey was our tour guide and she was wonderful. The next day, we did a hop on hop off tour and realized that we had already learned a lot of the info from Bailey. In addition, I'm allergic to dairy and Bailey made sure that there was something delicious for me to eat at each stop. #2 Capital Bee Honey was fun and delicious. I learned abput honey and tasted several different kinds. Then after the tour, I went back and purchased several bottles and pumps. Delish. #3 I would have loved to learn a little more about why we stopped at each of the other restaurants. Granted, the food was delicious (except the fried pork chop, not my thing), but I would have liked to learn more about why that spot. All in all, it was great. I highly recommend Bailey as your tour guide.
