Food, Fun and a really great way to spend the day. Brad entertained us as we walked around Old Tucson. We had lots of interesting things to eat, we were all stuffed but very happy by the end of the tour. Please take this food tour, It was the highlight of a very lovely time visiting Tucson.

Brad does a nice job of blending local foodie and historic knowledge over the course of 4 hours. The tour made 7 stops, and none of it seemed rushed. We got to sample a variety of dishes--pizza, fried brussel sprouts, tamales, corned beef & pastrami, & gelato--all while meeting fellow tour goers from various parts of the US. We even... More

I loved this food tour of Tucson! We visited 7 restaurants, each unique, and learned not just about the food, but about the history and architecture, too. The portions were generous and the owners very accommodating of our group. There were 14 of us, slightly larger than ideal, but Brad handled it well. He was a wonderful guide, friendly, personable...

We live in Tucson but have not frequented the downtown area. This tour was a gift from our children and they certainly made the right choice. Brad was a superb host and provided an interesting perspective on the history of old Tucson as well as the origins of many of the historical sites. He also explained the origin of many... More

This tour was enjoyed by 3 generations of our family - a 12 year old girl, her mother and grandmother. Brad set the standard high for future food tours as this was a first for the 12 year old. We walked about 2 miles, but with all of the stopping and tasting, listening to history and admiring our surroundings, it... More

This was our first food tour and we couldn't have been happier. Brad was outstanding and personable. Not only did we enjoy wonderful selection of food, we were able to learn some history of Tucson and experience places that we would have never known were there. This was a very fun day.

We met up with Brad at the Hotel Congress and from there enjoyed an informative tour of downtown Tucson and six of its great restaurants. He was very knowledgeable of Tucson history, its buildings, and, best of all, where to find good food. All the tastings were interesting, tasty, and, in some cases, quite unique. As a visitor to the... More

Brad is definitely a "foodie", but he made the tour so much more by adding historical details, trolley user tips, microbrewery suggestions, brief shopping opportunities, etc. Our group of 14 consisted of a variety of people from locals to world travelers. The pace of the tour was just right with enough time at each of 6 different restaurants to sample... More

Downtown Tucson has changed so much in the last few years this is a great way to check out all that's fun and new! Brad has a very professional yet casual approach with attention to details that make the flow of the afternoon seamless! You can tell he loves doing these tours and that just adds to the overall experience.... More
