Life for ancient humans was like one big food tour, as entire tribes would constantly move to seek out sustenance while avoiding predators and evading angry cave waiters who had not been tipped. Embark on a leisurely hunt with today's Groupon: for $28, you get a food-tasting and cultural walking tour from Taste It Tours (up to a $57 value). Tours are generally scheduled on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Ranked as one of the top five tours in Phoenix by TripAdvisor, Taste It Tours explores Phoenix's bustling and burgeoning restaurants, indulging taste buds at five to seven different stops, which might include fine dining, bakeries, neighborhood gems, or even food trucks. The sun slides across the sky over the course of three hours as tours of up to 16 foodies chomp their way through 2 miles of downtown, pausing often to munch a new delicacy, study the architecture, or absorb a bit of history at a flagship restaurant or a plaque commemorating the Great Ketchup Shortage of 1932. The party makes a 15- to 20-minute pit stop at each location, sampling a variety of the eatery's specialty recipes. Tour guides evince their deep knowledge of and immersion in local culture with ever-ready anecdotes to ensure guests and the pigeons that routinely stalk the groups remain fully entertained. Although not included with this Groupon, alcohol samplings at four out of the five stops can be purchased directly from Taste It Tours on the day of the tour for an additional cost.
Though Taste It Tours sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
