My partner and I had an OUTSTANDING time! Rob Friedman was frickin AWESOME! He remembered everyones name and catered to each individual goal list! For example, we were staying in Cherry Creek, not only did he write down places for us to go and experience he wrote down the best places in areas we wanted and planned to go also. The food was just as... well the food was GREAT! dont get me wrong but the guide made the entire experience better. So on to the food, WOW, it was great! We were able to sample multiple locations and paired our food with drinks! When it comes to the sampling we, as a group, were all talking about how mouth watering the food was. Being able to relate to people from different areas made the experience that much better and wholesome. We (the group) were chatting back and forth comparing the current tasting with the previous tastings and asking which "tastes the best". This was a great time, would highly recommend and it's worth every minute, hour, and dollar.

The Downtown Small-Group Food Tasting Tour was a fantastic way to quickly meet other travelers while trying different and great food options around the city. It was nice to briefly hear why they're visiting the city & get a brief slice of their personal lives, while also trying different food treats. Our tour guides were also very friendly, engaging & inspiring. They provided great tips on the best places to eat around the city. A veteran tour guide was using our tour as a "stepping stone" to continue training a new tour guide. He respectfully provided tips & suggestions during the tour whenever the guide-in-training wasn't sure if she was doing her job correctly. This training/mentoring is very inspiring & useful for anyone better crafting their job skills. Overall, I recommend this Food Tasting Tour to anyone that wants to really appreciate the city.
