What you'll do

On our Secret Food Tour: Denver-Lodo, you'll enjoy a variety of classic local foods.

You'll walk along historic streets made famous by prospectors, miners, entrepreneurs, and architects, during the Colorado Gold Rush and infamous by the confidence men, madames, saloon girls, and bank robbers of the once Wild Wild West. Modern Denver is one of the fastest growing cities in the US, and with the boom has come an incredibly rich and ethnically diverse culinary scene. Denver is home to Slow Food Nation. We'll take you to some of Denver's best spots highlighting the history and what makes each place unique. Along the way, we'll show you how to find Denver's most iconic shopping, award-winning restaurants, and local tips to make your experience truly memorable.

At the end of your tour, you'll have sampled some of Denver's most delicious dishes and gained a better understanding of our culture and history.

All the food will be served with water and at times, a non-alcoholic beverage. Or if you prefer, a thoughtfully curated Upgraded Drinks Package is available.

Due to the nature of creating a well balanced and thoughtful gastronomy experience, many of our tours are unable to accommodate certain dietary restrictions. Please contact us prior to booking your tour to see if we are able to accommodate your dietary needs.

  • To start, you'll meet your guide outside of The Market on Larimer Square.
  • Our food journey will begin with House-Made Cranked Sausage in one of Denver's most iconic locations.
  • Next, we'll discover some of the indeginous and Mexican influences on Denver gastronomy at a family-run Mexican restaurant.
  • You'll then try some world-renowned asian fusion cuisine, made in-house.
  • Then it's time for a visit to one of Denver's James Beard award-winning spots, for a creative shishito pepper à la plancha.
  • We'll then move on to a sweet treat, as we sample some wine-infused chocolate truffles on our way back to Union Station.
  • Along the way we will surprise you with our exciting Secret Dish.

WHY LODO?

Lodo is the cultural heart of the city, as well as the birthplace of our modern metropolis. You will walk in the footsteps of history while walking in view of modern gleaming high rises, as your guide helps bring the past and future together. This area began its life as a gold and silver mining camp, and within a decade, Denver rapidly grew into the wealthiest city west of the Mississippi.
