We had a wonderful guide who gave us an in-depth history of Tucson as we walked to four restaurants for a taste of local food. We stopped at many other locations along the way including hotels, theaters, street corners, etc all with a story behind them. We did a lot of walking but all at a nice pace with lots... More

Brad's tour made our rainy day in Tucson so much fun! He is knowledgeable about the food scene and was happy to share his favorite spots and yummy dishes with us. There were 6 in our group (13 total on the tour) and the tour was intimate enough that Brad was able to chat with everyone on each stop. It... More

We are so glad you had a good time on the tour despite the rainy weather we were having! Today it is sunny and 79 degrees so the rain didn't stick around for long. Thank you for taking the time to write a review! More

We had a large group and our tour guide Nick did a great job making sure everyone had a good time. He was very knowledgeable about the food and especially about the historical significance's of the places we ate at and passed along the way. Well worth the money for something fun and different to do in Tucson. Thanks Nick!

We have participated in several food tours in Hawaii and other states and will rate Brad and the Tucson tour as one of the best. The food was excellent and only enhanced by Brad's knowledge of the history of Tucson. It is a walking tour and became somewhat difficult for me due to a health issue I have which can... More

This was a good tour. Found out lots about Tucson / history etc. nick was knowledgable and personable . The only improvement would be for Nick to be aware of street noise when talking. Lots was missed as garbage trucks went by.

This was our first food tour and we were pleasantly surprised. Our guide knew quite a lot about the history of Old Tucson. We visited 7 downtown restaurants for tasting and the guide also told us about several other restaurants as we passed them. Our favorite tastings were brussel sprouts at Reilly's and tamales at El Charro. We also sampled... More

My husband & I took the tour on 3 Feb 17. Brad was our guide & his knowledge of the town & eateries was extensive. We sampled food at 7 separate places & all were SO good. Three of my favorites were white cheddar fried cheese curds at The Hub, fried brussel sprouts at Reilly & tamales at El Charro... More
