Culinary & Cultural Tour
Enjoy a culinary and cultural tour that will awaken your senses to the sights, sounds and culinary delights of downtown Tucson. The tour begins at the Mercado San Agustin where you will learn about the history surrounding the area and enjoy the first delicious tasting at Agustin Kitchen. From the Mercado we hop on the streetcar (ticket included in the price) to Broadway and Church where we walk through the historic sights of downtown, stopping for pre-selected tastings at four additional locally owned restaurants. At each restaurant stop you will meet either the chef or owner who will speak about the inspiration behind their cuisine and answer questions. This is a fun, informative and tasty way to learn about our city’s history, the local restaurants and experience the newly launched modern streetcar.
The itinerary includes approximately 2 miles of walking. Tasting menus are preselected by the chefs and cannot be customized to meet special dietary needs.
