Fabulous food, great history a terrific overview of interesting stops along the way and a fantastic tour guide. Does it get any better? We really enjoyed the Waterfront Food Tour and would highly recommend Katrina - she was fun and engaging, well informed and made sure everyone was enjoying themselves. Oh yes, the food and the drinks were fantastic!

Great Food Tour!
DeShawnda_B, May 2023
I booked this food tour for myself and a group of friends and we really enjoyed it! We got a chance to check out about 5 spots and everything was tasty. Also got to walk around Old Town Scottsdale a little and gain some knowledge from our tour guide. I’d def recommend.
Wonderful time with my Mom ❤

We enjoyed the food, the other people and the guide! We enjoyed walking around old Scottsdale. Each stop was well planned.
Not what we expected
Martha_C, Apr 2023
We started off the trip a bit disappointed because Viator made it sound like it included a Trolley Tour as part of the eating experience.
Yummy & fun afternoon adventure!
Marina, Apr 2023
Fantastic tour with Katrina!! She was very knowledgeable, easy to hear, and fun. Katrina made sure we were always taken care of and comfortable. The five restaurants we visited were all excellent.
Great Tour!

Noah was an excellent tour guide! Loved all the food stops but favorites were the fantastic pizza & wine as well as the Tea Shop with those incredible Macarons! Highly recommended! We'll do again!

Kyle S was a great tour guide. There was just enough walking, plenty of food and drinks and the variety of food was great.

Carolyn, you're right, our food tours allow you to explore different food options and the public trolley really helps break up the walking in Scottsdale! We are grateful for your review and so pleased you had a great time with Kyle S. as your guide. Come back and tour with us again the next time you visit!

Places I'd return to!!
Karen H, Nov 2019
Kyle, our tour guide, did an awesome job! He threw in some interesting and historic fun facts along the way and we enjoyed the tour immensely!! Whoever chose these venues deserves kudos for their choices...we were completely impressed and would go back again. We attended with our adult grand kids (in their 20's) and the tour was enjoyed by all! Thanks for a great time!
Great experience!

I recommend this tour! Great for locals, too! We will definitely return to the restaurants, bakery we visited. The tour guide, Mitchell was pleasant and informative!
Very Good Overall Experience
gary h, Oct 2019
The Scottsdale Trolley Food tour was very enjoyable. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Overall, the food and drinks were very good although my wife didn't care for 2 out of the 5 selections. The only SNAFU was that the trolley didn't stop for us at one point of the tour. I guess we were a relatively healthy group, so no one seemed to mind the extra walk.
Great Value - One of the Best things we did in Scottsdale
Jim W, May 2019
Highly Recommend doing this tour if you like History and Great old town food! My husband and I did this kind of on a whim. We were looking for something different to do in Scottsdale / Phoenix area. We are so glad we picked this tour. It was very informational with Historic facts and locations as well as food places we never would have tried. We will definitely be visits some of the eateries again. We loved the small group and our Guide was the Best!
Response from Host, Jul 2019
We enjoyed having you guys on our food tour, thanks for the review!
Great tour
Peter_P, Mar 2019
This is a tour which is highly recommended. The price was right and the choices of restaurants presented a great opportunity to try different items. Our guide Matthew was the best. Knowledgeable, pleasant and professional
Hidden foodie greats
WILDA_S, Jan 2019
Off the beaten path greats! Been to Old Town Scottsdale numerous times and didn’t know where to lunch. Now we know lots of great options. Jessica was knowledgeable. Jumping on and off the trolley was great fun!
