This was a good tour. Found out lots about Tucson / history etc. nick was knowledgable and personable . The only improvement would be for Nick to be aware of street noise when talking. Lots was missed as garbage trucks went by.

This was our first food tour and we were pleasantly surprised. Our guide knew quite a lot about the history of Old Tucson. We visited 7 downtown restaurants for tasting and the guide also told us about several other restaurants as we passed them. Our favorite tastings were brussel sprouts at Reilly's and tamales at El Charro. We also sampled... More

My husband & I took the tour on 3 Feb 17. Brad was our guide & his knowledge of the town & eateries was extensive. We sampled food at 7 separate places & all were SO good. Three of my favorites were white cheddar fried cheese curds at The Hub, fried brussel sprouts at Reilly & tamales at El Charro... More

If we had been just driving through the area we never would have stopped at these spots even if we had seen them.Not only did Brad tell us a lot about... More

Brad, the owner (and leader) of the Tucson Food Tours has spent many years in the restaurant industry, and his knowledge and love of food shows on this food tour. It was a great way to learn more about the Tucson food scene, including restaurants not on the tour. We had 5 stops along the way, and plenty of food... More

Thank you for the kind review Heidi! It was definitely much busier then we expected downtown that day. The news says there were 15,000 people at the women's march. We are pleased that you still enjoyed yourselves despite the hustle and bustle down there! More

My daughter is a Food Sciences major and major foodie, so I wanted something she'd like when visiting Tucson from Wisconsin. Took a flyer on this since I didn't really know anything about it. The walk, the restaurants, and owner/tour guide, (Brad, a Tucson Firefighter/Restaurant expert) all blended like a fine recipe. She loves Tucson but loved this the most.... More

We loved Brad's tour. It was a great blend of history along with some delicious food stops. No alcohol included, but no problem to buy a drink at any of the stops. Highly recommend spending a few hours with Brad.
