From organic coffee tasting to pizza to tamales, to unbelievable tasting brussel sprouts, and a few refreshments, we thoroughly enjoyed the day. Nice to give visitors a tour... More

My husband and I took the Tucson Food Tour on April 14th, 2015. We thought it would be a great way to entertain out of town guests who had never been to Tucson before. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the tour. Parking downtown couldn't have been easier, and was an ideal spot to start and end... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour--Brad (the owner & tour director), the food (plenty of it and very tasty) & all the additional info Brad shared. Some quirky history factoids, info about each restaurant as well as others in the neighborhood & lots of reasons we should return to this part of Tucson for more dining experiences.

This is a great way to see downtown Tucson, learn some history, and enjoy superb food/drinks. This is one of the highlights of our week in Tucson. Plan on walking 2.5 miles with 7 stops over about 3.5 hours. The food samples were 95% delicious, including tamales, cookies, pizza, corned beef, pastrami, and hummus. You finish with a full stomach.... More

I would classify this tour as one of the top things to do in Tucson and a great value for the money. We went with friends who are Tucson natives. We all had a great time and they were surprised to learn there are so many new good restaurants downtown. Our personable and entertaining guide led us on a leisurely... More

Easy walking and so much information, Brad made the tour so much fun. He shared historical information about how the downtown area of Tucson has made a big turn around since 2009. He shared information about what the restaurants we visited had to offer, made recommendations, and told wonderful stories. He has a fabulous personality. We enjoyed the Fort and... More

The other reviews speak the truth. Brad our guide was funny, informative and made for a very relaxed day ambling around Tucson. THere is no way we would have found these great restaurants or know what to order. The food was delicious. Our companions were good company too. So to summarise - excellent company, excellent food, excellent food and drink... More

Put on comfy shoes and join Brad for an entertaining, fun, and filling afternoon! Brad had interesting information and facts about Tucson. All of the restaurants chosen were unique and served beautiful fresh food. Each plate made us smile and want to make future reservations at the restaurant. The walk was perfect....walk a bit....eat a bit...walk a bit...have a micro-brew... More

The route seemed like it covered the nice spots around downtown Tucson. Our guide was knowledgeable, shared about himself and what it is like living in Tucson, and included good humor and facts/history about the area. The food samples offered were a good variety and we walked away full at the end of the day! We would recommend for a... More
