City Tasting Tours wants to take you on an in-depth look into the thriving food culture in Downtown Memphis with guided tours throughout the spring and summer months.
Cristina McCarter, the co-founder and owner of City Tasting Tours of Memphis was born and raised in Memphis, TN and now resides in the rejuvenated Overton Square with her husband and son. She fell in love with Memphis as a kid cheering the Memphis Tigers to victory at the Pyramid and started a food blog called Loving My Memphis. Her love for food and the city blossomed from there.
The local love here is amazing and really flourishing into something I wanted to stay connected to. I love showing off my city, I love meeting new people in my city and I definitely love to eat! Luckily I live in a city where that’s first nature.
