Combine cuisine and history for an unforgettable experience!
Manitou Springs, an eclectic town just west of Colorado Springs at the base of Pikes Peak, is a haven for hippies and history buffs. Enticed by the nine natural effervescent mineral springs and the crisp mountain air, early travelers visited the town via the railway, seeking healing and relaxation. Today, Manitou offers a glimpse into Colorado’s rich past while being studded with specialty shops, delectable dining, and stunning views of the Rocky Mountains.
Our fun-loving tour guide will lead you to five culinary destinations within the easy walking distance of one-half mile. Each location will offer fresh flavors while sharing their unique story and vision for the future. Boost the booze by adding alcohol pairings and enhance your epicurean experience with three sample local libations.
To encourage quality conversation and the forming of foodie friendships, we limit the tours to 14 guests. This nighttime tour is a star-lit whirlwind of flavors for both visitors and residents alike!
