Tour Overview

Delicious Downtown Food Tour

A new and unique way to explore a city, even if it’s your own!

A downtown food tour developed for locals and visitors! Dine and dash in the heart of historic downtown Colorado Springs on our original flagship tour.

This tour features five diverse and delicious culinary destinations within an easy walking distance. Each destination will prepare generous helpings of their homemade provisions with some non-alcoholic beverages, too. Thirsty trailblazers can elevate this appetizing adventure by adding alcohol pairings including Colorado craft beer, spirits, and wine at three destinations.

As you meander down Tejon Street, envision an old horse-drawn carriage, hear the chug of the railroad, and learn about the trade of gold and silver at the Mining Exchange. Be transported to yesteryear in between bites as your trusty tour guide enchants you with tales untold.

To encourage quality conversation and the forming of foodie friendships, we limit the tours to 14 guests. A fun and memorable event where you can leave the planning and entertaining to us!
