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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Public tours accommodate up to 14 guests. To book a private tour for your group, you will need at least 10 people, but we can accommodate larger groups. Contact us for more information.

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.
