About Us

Arizona Food Tours was started on the idea that when history, culture, food, and people combine, something very exciting is born. On A Taste of Old Town Scottsdale food and cultural tour, we do just that.

While walking through the winding hot streets of Old Town, there are many mom and pop shops that offer a much different look inside this old western town. From the saloons that have been serving cowboys for years to the teashops that often sell more over ice than hot here in Arizona, there truly is something for everyone. At Arizona food tours, we would like to give guests this inside look into our beautiful town.

History is brought to life with demonstrations, samples and stories, making this a great, behind the scenes look at one of the southwest’s greatest destinations. Tourists and locals alike can learn and explore many great places that may otherwise go unseen!
