We had never done a tour like this one but it was delightful and needless to say tasty. Went to places we very likely would have never stopped at. It was an added pleasure as the chef or owner described what they wanted for their restaurant. A do not miss activity.

Tucson Food Tours helped us introduce a group of out-of-state University of Arizona students to the culinary options around campus. Brad is friendly and engaging (even after five tours in 105+ degree weather). Brad is definitely a foodie and has excellent recommendations, including several places that weren't included in the tour. We had some students with dietary restrictions and each... More

Great way to be introduced to Tucson restaurants. All of the restaurants were AMAZING. Our favorite was Riley's with their Brussel Sprouts... WOW.

We all met at the courtyard of the historic Congress Hotel, and after a brief look through the lobby, we strolled at a leisurely pace to 6 different stops around Tucson. In between each location, Brad, the owner/guide told us interesting factoids about the places along the way or about the dishes we were about to taste. For example, find... More

Although we have lived in Tucson for more than 35 years, we learned a lot about new restaurants and the history of downtown Tucson. The tour included 6 restaurants and the food was more than expected, diverse and all excellent! The walking tour allowed us to hear more about the recent downtown development and many historical facts about the city.... More

Really well done tour with lots of history info and small taste samples at each restaurant. There's no time pressure and very friendly and comfortable atmosphere. Brad is very knowledgable and gave the tour his own touch and character.

One can learn a lot about a culture by its' food. Brad, our Tucson Food Tour host, definitely gets that connection. No doubt, we were introduced to an eclectic array of food during our four hour, two mile tour of revitalized downtown Tucson. But it was Brad's humorous but informative presentation of city history beginning and ending at the art... More

Wow. What a fantastic experience we had last weekend attending the Food Tour of Tucson. Our Tour Guide, Brad, was delightful, and knowledgeable of the history re the growth of downtown Tucson which he shared with us as we walked. The samples at each of the six stops were delicious and just the right sized portions. You could order an... More

This is one of the best things to do when visiting Tucson! After you book your food tour online you will get a reminder the closer it gets. There is plenty of parking downtown close to the meeting place. Brad the tour guide wears a headset microphone and speaker fanny pak so you can hear him with no problem. By... More
