FAQ

TICKET QUESTIONS

Tickets include all of your food and non-alcoholic beverages, wherever provided. They also include restaurant tax and gratuity. In some cases, you can upgrade your ticket to include alcohol pairings. Tickets do not include Tour Leader gratuity.
Leaving a 15-20% gratuity for your Tour Leader is customary, especially if you had a great time and wish to recognize them for a job well done! We recognize that most people don’t carry cash these days, so our guides are able to accept credit cards at the end of the tour.
Yes, you must purchase your tickets at least three hours prior to the tour. However, to maximize your chances of getting the day, time, and number of tickets you prefer, we recommend all guests book well in advance as tours can sell out.
All of our tours are unique, and we encourage you to try them all! There is no overlap of food tasted and history shared across our tours.
We like to keep our groups small and intimate, so we comfortably serve groups of up to 14 people. In order to run a private food tour, we do require a minimum of eight (8) guests.
Only in the event that we do not meet our minimum guest count would we be forced to cancel a tour. In the rare situation that you are signed up for a tour that doesn’t meet the minimum, we will contact you a head of time to either reschedule your tour or issue you a full refund, whichever you prefer. *Please Note: If your tickets were purchased with a gift card, the gift card will be reinstated for the amount used. Gift cards cannot be redeemed for cash.
If you have been affected by COVID-19 and are unable to attend your tour, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance, and we will happily transfer your paid amount to a gift card. We have added a new ticket insurance for only $5 that will allow you to get a full cash refund less fees and the cost of the insurance up to 24 hours in advance of your event. This is purchased for each individual ticket through our website during the ticketing process. If you are unable to make your tour and did not purchase ticket insurance, we will gladly transfer your full amount paid to a gift card which will never expire if you make your request outside of 24 hours from your tour. If you cancel within 24 hours of your tour, no matter if you have insurance not, your ticket will be forfeited and you will be considered a no-show.   Private Tours: Private tours, unless originating as a public tour, have a separate cancellation policy detailed on your contract. If We Need to Cancel: Should we need to cancel the tour due to inclement weather or insufficient ticket sales, you will be offered your choice of a full cash refund (no fee), gift card, or date transfer. Please contact us at 719-322-5731 if you have questions or need to request a refund or date transfer.

RESTAURANT/FOOD QUESTIONS

We’ve developed delicious itineraries and have set the menu and drink pairings in advance with each of our restaurant partners. Because of this, we do not allow a la carte ordering. You are always welcome to return to a destination after the tour to try whatever may have tempted your taste buds!
Yes! Guests are able to request vegetarian or gluten-friendly substitutes when purchasing their ticket in advance.  
Sure! If you change your mind and want to include in the drink pairings, your Tour Leader will be equipped to upgrade your ticket with a credit card payment of $15 when you check in to your tour. Drink pairings are only available for guests 21+ years of age. (Note: the only tour for which this question is applicable is The Original Colorado Springs Food Tour as drink pairings are included in all other tours.)
We pride ourselves on partnering with some of the best eateries in the areas we conduct our tours. These destinations are chosen based on our experience with their food and staff as well as their desire to meet and engage new patrons via a tour setting. We arrange the tours in a way that no food will be duplicated and it will be a balanced mix of savory and sweet bites.
We strongly believe in supporting the local economy and want to do what we can to help entrepreneurs and passionate restaurateurs succeed. By visiting only local eateries, our guests can experience the true heart and soul of our beloved city.
There are times when we are required to substitute a culinary destination. If you are wondering about specific destinations for a particular tour, you are welcome to contact us in advance of your tour. We do not publish specific itineraries on our website - that would take out some of the fun!
Since we serve generous samples at each stop, we recommend that guests come ready to enjoy all of the offerings. In most cases, our tours provide the equivalent sustenance of a meal.
Of course! Every destination will have water pre-set on the table or available to order for every guest.

LOGISTIC/MISC QUESTIONS

If you are running late to your tour, please let us know by texting or calling 719-322-5731. We will give you instructions on where to meet up with your group to ensure you experience as much of the tour as possible.

For children younger, we ask you to consider their attention span and whether or not this event is appropriate for them. Please, do not bring children under the age of 5.
