Walking tours are a great way to get to know a town and its history. Strolling at a leisurely pace through town, you'll soak up the sights and sounds of the local Manteo landscape while at the same time learning about the town's history from experienced local tour guides. Outer Banks Tastes and Tales makes the walking tour experience all the better by adding food and drink to the mix. The Taste & Tales tour for ages 21 and older is guided by a costumed pirate who shares tales and drinking history related to the Outer Banks – and rum, wine and beer samples are included. The Treats & Tales tour is family friendly and includes coastal and maritime history as well as stops in local ice cream and candy shops. The Manteo Historic Homes Walking Tour is a guided tour that passes by local homes, buildings and points of interest. Ask about Food Tasting Tours, private custom tours and their Campfire Tales program, in which they come to you with songs and stories to tell by the fire. The guides are passionate storytellers with backgrounds in education and recreation, and they work hard to make sure their customers are interested and entertained. Walking tour distances cover a half-mile to a mile and a half and last from one to one and a half hours. Prices and hours are on the website or call for information.
