“Taste of Tucson Downtown” Adds Fourth Avenue Food Tour

Taste of Tucson Downtown, which has offered cultural and culinary tours downtown since October 2014, has added a new tour: Fourth Avenue from 1 – 5 p.m. every Thursday.

The new tour includes stops and bites at Delectables, Ermanos Craft Beer & Wine Bar, Fired Pie, La Indita, and Isabella’s Ice Cream along with a 24-hour SunLink streetcar pass.

Tours begin at the Mercado San Agustin, where guests meet up and hop onto the SunLink with co-owners, cousins, and tour guides Elysa Crum and Sherry Weiss.

Bites are portioned smaller so you have room to eat at every stop and be comfortably full at the end of the tour, which concludes with dessert and coffee. The culinary stops are about 15 to 20 minutes long, so you’ll have time to order a cocktail if you’d like.

Although the tour begins with the SunLink ride, the majority of the tour is on foot. Destinations are only a short walk from each other with additional stops for points of interest regarding history and architecture.

Once all the stops have been reached, you’re welcome to use your SunLink pass to explore on your own or ride back to Mercado San Agustin with Crum and Weiss.

Tickets for the tour are $60 per person.
