Downtown Ithaca Food Tour

Our flagship tour delves into the heart of Downtown Ithaca with stops at beloved restaurants and notable landmarks in The Commons area. Often described as our “variety tour”, this experience gives the best introduction to all the heart of our city has to offer.

Downtown Ithaca Craft Beverage Tour

Sip, snack, and socialize your way through Downtown Ithaca with tastes of Finger Lakes wine, craft beer, artisan cider, and a cocktail with local spirits. Think of this one as cocktail hour – but on foot!

The Science of Taste

Rediscover your five basic tastes while exploring Downtown Ithaca’s restaurants on this special tour designed with winter weather in mind. Short presentations at each stop answer questions such as “What is the difference between taste and flavor” and “What does umami mean?” while guests enjoy samplings which showcase each taste.

Custom Tour

If none of the options above fit your group’s needs we can customize an experience for you!
