    I took this tour on my birthday, with 6 other totally strangers and I don't regret. Some of the food I tried was different and delicious. Bonnie our guide was fun and gave us lots of information about places and town history. All in all was a good experience.

    I would recommend this to anyone staying in Denver.

    Lisa was great, very informative and entertaining. She took us to places we would have never visited and we tried amazing unusual foods. You must do this tour.

    Nice way to spend an afternoon in Lo Do. Walking tour with cool restaurants. 6 restaurants with a bit of history thriwn in. Lisa, our tour guide was pleasant and a good guide. I went solo and we had a total of 6 on the tour; good for solo folks and couples too. The food was all very good; the portions were small - tasting portions. I enjoyed the tour and would definitely do a tour with Lisa again.

    A delicious sampling of Denver. Jess is very knowledgeable about Denver's culinary landscape and the city's history. Look forward to coming back and trying out a few of the locations we hit on. Fantastic tour overall for those new to Denver.
