What a great time we had on the walking tour!!! Rob was so knowledgeable, friendly and personable he really made the day. Not only were all of the places we visited AMAZING, Rob took the time to hand write us recommendations for the rest of our time in Denver based on what he gathered about us while on the tour. We went to a few of those places and not one disappointed.Thank you Robbie for the information, the laughs and such a personal touch; you’ve inspired us to look for more tours like this in other cities that we may visit. We definitely left the tour well fed!!-Stephanie and Stephon Robinson

Austin was a great tour guide. He was knowledgeable and friendly. His voice resonated so everyone could hear him and you could tell he was excited about his work. The food stops we made were very tasty. By the end of the tour we were stuffed and noted lots of eating establishments that we would visit.

Austin was a wonderful guide. We are local and learned new information and saw new places on this tour thanks to him! Food was good; but, the servings were small. I came hungry and didn’t exactly get full. Also we bought our drinks (1/each) ala carte instead of the package (3 is too much for us to drive) so that was a nice option!

Barry was a stellar tour guide, bringing just the right punt of history, detail specific to the venues visited, and tying back into Denver heritage. He made our group of 10 strangers feel right at home in Denver and encouraged us to meet and learn more about our fellow foodies who were on the tour.

Austin was a phenomenal, engaging, knowledgable tour guide. We stopped at 5 locally owned and operated places unique to Denver. Neopolitan pizza, empanadas, lightly fried tacos, green chili, and a flaky egg tart for dessert at Union Station highlighted our tour. I don't think a single person was unimpressed. About half the group paid extra for alcohol pairs at some of the earlier stops. Worth every dollar, it was fun not only tasting the food, but also learning the history of the various neighborhoods we walked through. Thanks Austin!

We had a super fun tour with Barry - he was really friendly, personable, and knowledgeable about food and gave lots of great info on local restaurants. The stops on the food tour were excellent and I enjoyed that we could add on drinks. This is a great way to spend an afternoon making new friends, getting a mini tour of downtown Denver, and getting to enjoy some really tasty local cuisine!
