The Original Downtown Tour ($59 Value)
Phoenix's past, present, and future all make surprise cameos throughout this tour's five stops. Tour-goers head to a historic tavern to eavesdrop on Arizona's political elite over signature comfort food. By tour's end, expect to slurp curried noodles and nibble timeless Italian favorites. Tours take place Monday, Thursday, and Saturday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The Evening Dine Around ($68 Value)
A well-chilled atmosphere of art, local history, and sophisticated nocturnal nibbles define the evening tour. After Urban Olive Oils & Balsamic, taste buds are treated to famous lobster lettuce cups and mussels provençal. Next, diners are given a rare opportunity to eat crisp Roman-style pizzas amid the grandeur of a (supposedly haunted) former department store. The night's odyssey then passes through a Greek eatery for a spectacular fire-cooking show on a patio. The tour concludes with a sampler of a wine bar's daily special, spiced with herbs from the rooftop garden right above the diners' heads. Tours take place Tuesday, Saturday, and Sunday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
