Our Downtown Ithaca Food Tour is a narrated, guided tour of the heart of Ithaca. You will visit six different one-of-a-kind establishments that showcase the incredible variety of what this town has to offer. Delicious food tastings, enough for a full lunch, will be served by these locally-owned culinary hotspots. Between scrumptious samplings, you’ll be treated to a local’s knowledge of Ithaca’s history and culture. We will share our love for our hometown as we showcase historic sites, architectural gems, public art, and so much more. At the end of the tour, you’ll be well acquainted with Downtown Ithaca’s attractions, restaurants, upcoming events, and more. Whether you’re a first time visitor or a lifelong “townie” we guarantee that you’ll walk away with a satiated appetite and a new perspective on Ithaca’s culture, cuisine, and community.
Since grade school we've all had a love for food: Sarah taught herself to cook for a class project, Seth dreamed of a build-your-own pasta bar biz, and Cathy baked mud pies with "locally sourced" ingredients like flower petals and sticks. All three of us grew up in Ithaca, and as adults we also fell in love with our hometown: everything from the 'gorges' natural areas to the creative community. Today we curate and lead tours as Ithaca is Foodies. We draw on close relationships with our partner establishments and our undying enthusiasm to bring you a culinary adventure accessible to locals and visitors alike. We cannot wait to bring you out with us!
