I just moved down to Boise from California. Since my 21 year old son was visiting, we decided to try this tour. We were the only two participants during the tour which was a little disappointing because we were hoping to connect with others. Bob was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable. Wonderful range of culinary choices and presentation of the Boise culture. Loved so many things about this experience. However, the biggest disappointment was during our dining experience at the Mai Tai restaurant. The decor and ambiance was great and the food would have been even better if it wasn’t cold. It appeared the food had been sitting for awhile before we arrived and therefore was a big let down. Decided to box up the rest of the cold food. On the plus side, this gave us more stomach room to enjoy the delectable sweet treats from The Chocolat Bar.

My girlfriend and I had a great time on the tour. Our guide, Bob, was very well informed and friendly. He was great about giving us space when we were eating so it didn't feel like we were being watched like hawks while trying to eat. He had plenty of information about the history of Boise and the restaurants we went to. My only complaint was that we paid for the alcohol paired tour but we didn't actually get any alcohol. I would have mentioned but I didn't realize until the second to last stop. Not a big deal, regardless, I would recommend clarifying at the beginning. Aside from that it was a fantastic tour and we are definitely going to be attending another one.

My mother and I visited Boise, ID as part of our mission to see all 50 states. We started off our short trip with this tour on a Saturday, and it was an excellent way to not only check out the food scene in the city, but also learn more about the history of Boise and orient ourselves around the city. We are both huge foodies, so it was fun to try different cuisines and local eateries. The portions were very generous, great variety, and our tour guide Bob was wonderful. We loved a couple of the places we ate at so much, that we went back again two days later. We chose the non-alcohol pairing to save room for checking out local breweries later in the day, but according to a few others in the group, the alcohol pairings were worth it. I would highly recommend this tour!

Small group with a friendly and informative tour guide. It was fun to walk the downtown zone and be told about the history of old buildings and the Basque culture. The food was varied and divine.

We enjoyed the tour with Ha—she was energetic, knowledgeable and brought us to some great places. We especially enjoyed the stop at Bacon and the olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting. Highly recommended!
