Thanks Brad for a wonderful day of grazing, gazing and learning. Your selection of restaurants and foodie stops were excellent and we felt like we got to know about a very interesting slice of downtown Tucson while stuffing our faces. Topping off the walking tour with donuts and whiskey was a superb way to end the afternoon. We would highly... More

A friend has been recommending this tour for over a year and finally I got around to taking it. This is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Brad, the guide and owner, has a long history in Tucson's food scene. I learned so many good things about my favorite restaurants, tried some new restaurants that I loved and learned... More

Went with family on the Food Tour and had a great time. Brad, our tour guide and local fire fighter was awesome. He was dun to be with and knowledgeable about the area and its history and gave us fun insights about the local restaurants, the ones we went into and some that we didn't. It seemed that his primary... More

This tour was not only enlightening about the transformation from 2012 to today's restaurants, but historical. We hit the best places, walking along the way with a group of firefighters, led by a firefighter once in the food service industry. Started out with some coffee, ended up with some liquor infused donuts. How's that for unusual food tour. Plenty of... More

Thank you for the review!! We are glad you enjoyed tour. You know there is going to be a lot of good food when firefighters are involved!

Today we joined a group of six other people on a 3 hour tour of 6 different eateries in Tucson. Brad, owner and today's guide was not only a foodie himself but had tons of background info on Tucson and places we visited. Come hungry! Good food, drinks and company!

What a blast! Not knowing what to expect, this is a must for all visitors and locals. You meet up with Brad the owner/guide for 4 hours of fun, eating, learning, and meeting new people. You do not go away hungry, quite the opposite. I took my mom (75) and she did fine with the walking. You stop and eat... More

We are fairly new to the Tucson area and thought the tour would give us sampling of what the downtown core has to offer. Between Brad, our host, and the 5 stupendous restaurants, this tour exceeded far beyond any of our expectations. Brad with his passion for food , knowledge of the dining scene, and history of the area gives... More

Our guide met us with a cocktail, a menu of our scenic tour, laughter and history about the downtown area that we never knew and we are locals. She showed us how to ride the new trolley bus, joked with us and made each of us feel very special. She knew the chefs and introduced us to them and our... More
