Frequently Asked Questions
How much walking is there on the tour?
Our Downtown Food Tour includes about 1 mile of walking. On the Cocktails & Tastes Tour and the Food + Beer Tour, we walk less half a mile.
How much food is served on the tour?
The Downtown Food Tour includes 6 tastings over 3 hours. We find that this equates to a substantial lunch portion.
Our Cocktails & Tastes Tour focuses primarily on the 5 cocktails, but there are bites at all four stops, so it is equivalent to heavy appetizers and is a good start to the evening.
The Food + Beer Tour includes five tastings, which makes up a large lunch portion. Opt for the beer pairings, and you’ll taste five craft beers with your food tour tastings.
Are there drinks served on the food tour?
Our standard adult ticket for the Downtown Food Tour does not include alcohol, but upgrade to the drink package when purchasing your ticket, and you'll enjoy three cocktail pairings throughout your tour. The Cocktails & Tastes Tour includes 5 cocktail tastes. The Food + Beer Tour can be done simply as a food tour, or purchase the upgraded ticket, and you’ll get 5 craft beer pairings.

Downtown Food Tours start near the ballpark and end at Union Station. Cocktail & Tastes Tours start inside Union Station and end at the Maven Hotel. Food + Beer Tours start and end inside the Denver Central Market in the RiNo Arts District.

For summer tours, please be sure to check the Colorado Rockies schedule as our tours run near the ballpark. This means that parking can be difficult on home game days, and extra time should be allotted to arrive to your tour on time.
Can you accommodate dietary restrictions?
We can accommodate vegetarians but are unfortunately unable to accommodate vegan, dairy-free or gluten-free diets on our tours.
Please be sure to include any food allergies when booking your ticket so substitutions can be arranged in advance. We are unable to make last-minute substitutions as food is pre-ordered with our restaurant partners.
