Just in time to entertain invading friends and relatives or to serve as a filling (har) stocking stuffer, Taste It Tours-A Culinary Experience, is offering guided foodie tours in Downtown Phoenix.
TasteItTours182x135Now through May, Taste It Tours will be leading tours of Downtown restaurants Friday-Sunday. The tours begin at 1 p.m. and end around 4 p.m.
Tickets range from $47-$57 and that’s a price that will get you entertained, informed, and well-fed.
Taste It Tours’ vision is to have its customers savor, learn, explore and connect with each guided tour and the ticket price includes food and drink from 5-8 restaurants, access to the talented chefs,  plus tie-ins to architecture, historical insights, stories about the history of Downtown and the personalities that forged the region.
“Our tours are very precise and well thought out,” said owner Jessica Combest. “We want to keep our schedule and not make the chefs wait. And we’re doing it during a down time to avoid the rush.
“We’re going to tweak it as we go along to make it the best experience we can, incorporating the Public Market and other destinations.”
The walking tours are open to all ages and fitness levels. Each tour can accommodate 16 guests.
Tours will begin the first week in January.
