We strive to provide amazing food experiences for guests while supporting local Denver restaurants.

Our Story

At Delicious Denver Food Tours, we're passionate about local food and our beloved city.  We believe that food brings people together and that there is no better way to form a connection than over a great meal.  

Our food tours are a fun and engaging way to explore Denver, to learn about our city's history and thriving food scene and to connect with fellow travelers and Denver locals.

Chris

Food Tour Guide

Chris hails from Brooklyn but has called Denver home since his family relocated in 1995 to open a pizzeria.  Growing up in an Italian family, food was his second language.

An accomplished comedian, Chris has performed stand-up since 1999 when he made his debut at Comedy Works.  When he's not guiding food tours, Chris can be found in his kitchen serving up delicious home-cooked meals.

Lisa

Food Tour Guide

Lisa is an active Denver-ite and voracious eater. She grew up in San Diego, but has called Colorado home for the past four years. She's still learning how to drive in the snow (any tips are welcome). 

When she's not showing off her beautiful city, Lisa is probably at the gym, training for her next powerlifting meet.  You can read more about Lisa and her Colorado adventures on her blog.

 
Sarah Daulton, Food Tour Guide

Sarah

Food Tour Guide

Sarah moved from Cincinnati to pursue the outdoor activities unique to Colorado. She lived in Telluride and Breckinridge but has called Denver home for the past 17 years. It was here that she discovered her true love for food- from dining to cooking to wine, beer and cocktail pairing.

When she isn’t eating her way across Denver, Sarah can be found biking, gardening, cruising local farmers markets or operating her catering company where she cooks for private parties and teaches cooking classes.

Jill

Food Tour Guide

Jill has traveled and lived around the world and U.S., landing in Denver 5 years ago. The culinary and craft beer scene are some of her favorite things about our city, and in her spare time she loves getting to try the many awesome spots around town.

Going to Red Rocks for a concert, skiing, and practicing her own cooking skills at home also keep her busy, at least when she and her partner aren’t camping at music festivals or soaking in some hot springs.
