What a fantastic food tour! We have done several all over the United States. The food was delicious and unique. Our guide, Roger, was personable and flexible. It was a frigid day but that didn’t keep us from enjoying the tour.
We are relaunching with limited capacity on Saturday, January 22! Please note our recently updated COVID-19 UPDATES & SAFETY PROCEDURES for more information.
If you only have time for one tour, make it this one! This established and popular tour highlights five distinctive local destinations that are the best in their class. You’ll visit some of the most loved restaurants in downtown Colorado Springs while hearing local history and fun facts. Each locale has a unique flavor with food that is both delicious and approachable.
Highlights of this tour include:
Public Tour Times: Fridays and Saturdays from 2:00-5:00pm
Small Group Tours: Is your group between 6-8 people? Talk to us about setting up a private food tour!
You’ve found it – the original Colorado Springs food tour that started in 2010! Join us as we celebrate our local chefs, delicious local food, and the vibrant culture of our blossoming downtown on this roving food tour.
In just three hours, you’ll experience five of downtown Colorado Springs’ most distinctive culinary highlights. Each local hot spot will be ready and waiting to serve generous portions of their signature fare.
Your expert tour leader will share stories of our history as well! With tales of the original Antlers Hotel, founder William Jackson Palmer, Pikes Peak, Spencer Penrose, the railroad, and more, even locals will walk away having learned a thing or two.
For those 21 years and older, we invite you to elevate your experience by adding three drink pairings. Each of the five destinations will serve a pre-set pairing – wine, cocktail, or Colorado craft beer – and you get to select your top three drinks, curating your own experience! (Pairings subject to change and/or be set due to current restaurant limitations.)
This tour is a social dining experience, so the capacity for all public tours is set at 7 guests (due to current state-wide restaurant restrictions – this will increase as soon as we are allowed to do so). If you are interested in this tour as a private experience for your group, please contact us. Tours run weekly, year round.
From corporate events to bachelorette parties, we do it all!
Think of us as your personal culinary event planners.

We feature seriously good food. We don’t pick out the cheapest thing on the menu or give you a sample on a toothpick. Our food and drink pairings are born out of one-on-one meetings with chefs and owners to ensure we’re featuring signature dishes.
We strongly encourage each of our guests to review our regularly updated “COVID-19 Updates & Safety Procedures” page for a full overview of what we are doing to keep our guests, our partners, and our staff safe.
Yes! Guests on the Original Colorado Springs Food Tour are able to request vegetarian or gluten-friendly substitutes when purchasing their ticket in advance.
This tour serves enough food for lunch, so come hungry!
We’ve developed a delicious itinerary 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!
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.
Currently, due to state-wide restrictions, our tours must be limited to only 7 people (8 people including the Tour Leader). We will increase capacity once we are allowed to do so our public tours generally accommodate up to 14 guests. To book a private tour for your group, contact us for more information.
This tour has been designed to be family-friendly, and we welcome young foodies who are 12+ years of age. For younger children, we ask you to consider their attention span and whether or not this event is appropriate for them. We ask that you do not bring children under the age of 5.
Thankfully, rarely if ever do we cancel due to weather! Luckily for us, Colorado experiences over 300 days of sunshine every year. Count on your tour taking place rain, snow, or shine. The only extreme exception may be if walkways become treacherous or roadways are closed. Tour guests are encouraged to dress comfortably and according to weather conditions. Casual attire with comfortable shoes is acceptable and encouraged. In the event of anticipated inclement weather conditions or when in doubt, we encourage you to bring accessories such as umbrellas, raincoats, gloves, hats or coats.
