The Marietta Food Tours Story

The idea for Marietta Food Tours was born from our desire to taste cuisines from locally owned and operated restaurants during our travels. Our love for our town combined with wonderful experiences while on food tours during trips to destinations such as San Francisco, Chicago and Nassau, Bahamas inspired us to create Marietta’s first culinary and cultural walking food tour experience. As long time Marietta residents, we are delighted at the opportunity to impart a vast array of interesting facts about The Marietta Square’s rich history and architecture, as well as showcase its fine eating establishments.
