Welcome

  COVID-19 UPDATE:


We hope that you, your family and businesses are healthy and adapting the best they/we can during these unforeseen times. 

What we know……….


  1.        The CDC has asked that no gatherings of 50 or more be conducted for the next 8 weeks.
  2.        That 5 states as of last night have closed bars and restaurants and      redirected them to take away / curb side.
  3.       The City/County have declared a state of emergency/disaster.


With this in mind and in direct response to COVID-19 concerns, as a precautionary measure with public safety in mind, the Soul of DFW Tours have decided to suspend service until further notice.  


As we continue to follow information and expert national and international recommendations regarding the coronavirus. We wish you well and will be in touch soon regarding our new tour dates!  Until then stay safe and healthy!


Sincerely,

Dalila Thomas and Deah Berry Mitchell

About Us

Founder

Deah Berry Mitchell (pictured right)


Deah Berry Mitchell is a corporate executive by day and freelance writer and culinary event producer by night residing in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. A double graduate of Southern Methodist University, she enjoys cooking, traveling and immersing herself into other cultures. While vacationing in 2017 Berry-Mitchell had the idea to produce a bus tour that would combine her two passions: foodways and local cultural history. Swiftly upon returning she suggested to her friend and public relations manager, Dalila Thomas, that they partner together to produce this new concept. In February 2018 they officially launched and have been producing the sold-out tours consistently since then. The pair have been featured in several media outlets such as, The Dallas Morning News, D Magazine, WFAA, Guidelive and numerous others. They are currently planning to expand into other test markets in the immediate future. Deah is currently finishing her second book, an untitled historical fiction novel. Pick up a copy of her first book published in early 2019, “Cornbread & Collard Greens: How West African Cuisine and Slavery Influenced Soul Food” here.
