Both locals and tourists might be interested in this fun adventure.
Well, Gray Line Tours has solved that problem with their ‘Best of the Barrio’ tours.
The tour inspired Visit Tucson’s ’The Best 23 Miles of Mexican Food’ and features stops at several restaurants and other culinary spots in South Tucson.
‘Best of the Barrio’ is a four-hour tour of the culinary treasure known as South Tucson. South Tucson is a city within a city (sort of like Vatican City and Rome) and offers an a some of the best Mexican food on the planet. Restaurants, bakeries, hot dogs stands and raspado bars line the streets. The only problem is which ones to visit.
Riders travel from place to place in a comfortable Gray Line vehicle and will dine on freshly made tortillas, savory carne asada tacos, creamy refried beans, sweet pan dulce to name a few. Beverages are included.
Along the way you’ll learn a little history and maybe some secrets to all that great food.
I had the good fortune to take the tour a few years ago and I have to say we walked away with full bellies and a smile on our faces.
The only must is that tours have to have at least six people. Groups are welcome.
This would be a great way to entertain your winter visitors. There is hotel pick-up and drop-off.
