This Tour Offers More Than Just Delicious Food

Delicious Denver Food Tours serve Mile High City flavor (with a side of history) to tourists and locals alike.

When loved ones visit, it’s impossible to show off all of Denver’s great restaurants—unless they stay longer than considerate guests should. But what if you could pack multiple venues into one afternoon? You can, thanks to Delicious Denver Food Tours, an 11-month-old culinary crawl company started by local foodie Jessica Baumgart. “It’s such a fun way to see a city,” she says. “Our tours include more than just food; you’ll also learn about Denver history and architecture and see local landmarks.” Baumgart and her merry band of guides recount stories from Denver’s past as they lead you on mile-long strolls across LoDo and the Ballpark neighborhood. (Did you know that the cost of a room at the Oxford Hotel when it opened in 1891 was just $1 per night? For $2, you could also take a bath.) On the Downtown Food Tour, you’ll taste everything from hot dogs to authentic Neapolitan pizza to locally made cheeses; the Cocktails & Tastes itinerary includes five drinks, with snacks at each stop. There’s no better way to experience the terroir of our city—and head home stuffed (or buzzed)—in three hours or less. From $59 to $80 per person

Editor’s note, 1/7/19: This article has been updated to reflect that Savor Denver Food Tours has changed its name to Delicious Denver Food Tours.
