Overview

Rated Tucson's #1 tour activity and a great way to get a Taste of Tucson. Tucson Food Tours was featured in the book "100 Things To Do In Tucson Before You Die". We are Tucson's original walking food tour where you not only get a combination of delicious foods and beverages, but a little history of Tucson along the way. This tour is one of the "Top things to do in Tucson" and was designed to allow visitors, locals, foodies to sample some of the hottest local foods and drinks in the area. Even people local to Tucson will learn and taste new things that are unique to this wonderful city. We also specialize in custom, private, or corporate tours and/or events. We can accommodate large groups and handle all the event planning for you!
