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 this Groupon.
$34 for a Three-Hour Evening Dine Around Tour ($68 Value)
Every Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday beginning at 6 p.m., groups gather downtown before shuttling to a trio of stops known for their decadent foods. The first stop lies in an eatery with a bar built solely around an elaborate cheese-slicing contraption, and groups will taste the fruits of the machine's labor via a Roman-style crisp-crust pizza topped with imported Italian cheeses. Next, a fine dining establishment treats taste buds to its infamous lobster lettuce cups, mussels provençale, and signature dessert. Like the sailing career of Odysseus, the culinary journey ends in Greece. In between breaths of fresh air on the patio, groups enjoy the Greek eateries' specialties, including house-made baklava. Along the way, guides weave historical information about downtown Phoenix into the narration they provide throughout the tour. Exact restaurants and food items may vary from tour to tour.
