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

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.

We love food tours and decided to see what Tucson had to offer. The owner/tour guide, Brad, did a really great job...better than most. He was warm and friendly and engaged the group right away. There were 5 downtown food stops and he added a 6th. The five scheduled stops were Sparkroot (coffee and a quarter of a blueberry muffin),... More

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

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! Even though you weren't able to take the tour at the beginning of your stay in Tucson, hopefully you will be back to revisit some of your favorite stops. Cheers! More
