My husband and I had heard great things (via tripadvisor) about the Foodie Food Tour, and decided to sign up and let that be our introduction to Aspen and some of the restaurants.
We were delighted to discuss Aspen, skiing, and restaurants with Marni, our guide. She was very knowledgeable and made this a fun experience for all six participants in the tour.
We had seven stops, each with wonderful food or drinks. We were treated to conversations with the chef, bakers, and beer makers, all of whom were passionate about their job. Because other people on the tour lived in the area, we were able to ask questions, have a discussion, and find out a great deal about living (and playing) in Aspen. We were also pleased that we got to sample the cuisine from Hotel Jerome and even got to make the famous smores from the St. Regis.
Marni even gave us a call the day before to make sure we knew the time and where to meet. She met us with a smile and bottled water. We did some walking, but not enough to discourage anyone from taking this tour. We spent a week in Colorado, and would consider this one of the highlights. It's a brilliant idea and Marni is very very good at what she does. I'd highly recommend it.
