On the three-hour walking tour, visitors taste gourmet samples from five of Vail’s restaurants and one of Vail’s specialty food shops while learning about the history of the ski town. There will be enough food for a moderate lunch, so the tour leaders recommend eating an early breakfast to save room. An alcohol pairing is available for an additional $30 and can be purchased on the Vail Valley website at the time of redemption.

Though Vail may be most commonly known for its slopes and celebrity sightings, to Matt Timmerman, the real pull is what's on Vail's plates. As the owner and guide of Vail Valley Food Tours, he began working in the ski town's kitchens more than 15 years ago. He was so impressed with the high concentration of excellent food and award-winning chefs, he decided to share his passion with visiting tourists and locals alike.
On three-hour curated tours, groups stop in for tastings in European-inspired, farm-to-table, and mom-and-pop eateries throughout the area. Enough food is served for a moderate lunch for most people or a light snack for Paul Bunyan. For those of suitable age, Matt also offers pairings of cocktails, wine, and beer at each destination.
