Beverage Pairings
Alcoholic beverages are at your discretion. Samples and mini servings of beer, wine & specialty cocktails available for $1 -$5 at each location so you can indulge at your own pace.

Getting Around
Detroit Foodie tours are walkable and offer you the opportunity to get in some light exercise and burn off some of the delicious food you will be sampling! Most of the locations are no more than a few blocks from one another. There will be one shuttle making its rounds for those that may be unable to complete the tour on foot. Note that this will NOT serve as door-to-door service. See your map for stop locations. There are typically plentiful Lyft and Uber drivers in the area that can easily and affordably provide a more customized form of transportation.

Are Samples Limited?
Yes and No… We know that everything will be so delicious you will want more but remember to pace yourself so you leave room to enjoy a sample from every stop. The chefs are preparing food based on one small plate sample per person. DFT politely requests that you limit your samples to one per location to help ensure that all tour participants can sample the featured small plate(s). Since this is an opportunity to give a good number of locations a try, we encourage you to visit the locations again in the near future!

Group Rates
We offer a special – If you purchase 6+ tickets one of them will be FREE! See the ticketing page for bundles, early bird pricesand details. If you have a group larger than 6 contact us and we may be able to offer you a group rate depending on the size of your group and any special promotions that are readily available.

All tickets are issued in the name of the purchaser and can be presented printed or electronically. It’s the responsibility of the purchaser to distribute tickets and credentials. Tickets can not be left for “will-call”. Can’t find your tickets? Don’t panic! We can look you up on our registration device.

To ensure a premium customer experience, DFT limits the number of tickets sold based on the capacities of participating locations. Locations vary on size, seating options, capacity and layout as well as some locations may be more popular than others and therefore we can’t guarantee seating.
