Second time I have done this tour. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Nick, our tour guide, was excellent. I have taken several food tours in NYC and learned about the history of the area as well as great restaurants to try. Tucson's tour is the same. Delicious samples of each restaurant.

Other reviewers were more positive than I am. I thought the food was solid -- some very good and some interesting if not entirely my taste. However, I wanted the narrative to be more focused on the food and the owner or chef's vision.

This was a fun activity and learned more about local cuisine in downtown Tucson. Met some new folks, had great conversation, easy walk, and most of all, we returned to 3 of the 6 restaurants we visited.

Brad is an excellent guide with a genuine love of food. The tour of Tucson was interesting and he provided many anecdotes about buildings, neighbourhoods and the restaurants we visited. The food was delicious and would highly recommend this tour.

It's a good way of discovering local restaurants as well as learning a little bit of history for residents as well as visitors to Tucson. Our guide Nick is wonderful in leading our group of 12 around downtown Tucson. The leisurely 2 mile walk was at a nice pace for everyone as we made our way to the different restaurants... More

We had a wonderful guide who gave us an in-depth history of Tucson as we walked to four restaurants for a taste of local food. We stopped at many other locations along the way including hotels, theaters, street corners, etc all with a story behind them. We did a lot of walking but all at a nice pace with lots... More

Brad's tour made our rainy day in Tucson so much fun! He is knowledgeable about the food scene and was happy to share his favorite spots and yummy dishes with us. There were 6 in our group (13 total on the tour) and the tour was intimate enough that Brad was able to chat with everyone on each stop. It... More

We are so glad you had a good time on the tour despite the rainy weather we were having! Today it is sunny and 79 degrees so the rain didn't stick around for long. Thank you for taking the time to write a review! More
