Boise, ID –

Indulge Boise Food Tours announced today that it will launch its Treasure Valley-based food & walking tours with its signature tour the “Historic Downtown Boise Food & Cultural Tour” on Friday, June 3.

Indulge Boise’s vision is to celebrate the wonderful offerings that exist in the community, educate tour guests about fresh ingredients and new culinary perspectives, create opportunities for local residents and visitors to the Treasure Valley to explore various neighborhoods throughout the city, promote & support local businesses, and provide another entertainment option where people can connect.

Tour guests are invited to “Discover Boise’s Culinary & Cultural Treasures” by taking Indulge Boise’s Historic Downtown Boise Food & Cultural Tour where they’ll stroll through downtown tasting Boise’s finest cuisine, viewing the city’s architectural treasures, learning interesting tidbits about the city’s extraordinary history and gaining further insight into its unique culture.

“We are thrilled to launch our signature tour in Downtown Boise this summer,” said Indulge Boise Owner & Chief Indulge Officer Angela Taylor. “There are so many amazing things taking place in the City of Trees, so we are honored to partner with local restauranteurs and food vendors in launching this tour. Culinary Tourism is one of the fastest growing industries in the world and is attracting visitors to cities around the world. Whether you are a local resident or visiting Boise for the first time, taking a walking & food tour is a great way to experience the true essence of this fantastic city.”

The tour, which lasts approximately 3 hours, will take guests on a walk through select downtown neighborhoods including Old Historic Boise, the Capitol District, and Central Downtown.  In addition to visiting many important local landmarks, guests will receive a VIP behind-the-scenes journey into the culinary world via 7-8 food tastings at select local restaurants, eateries, food trucks, and specialty shops.

Several iconic, award-winning downtown eateries are included in the signature tour including Bleubird Boise, Olivin Olive Oil & Vinegar Taproom, BACON, The Basque Market, Guru Donuts, Mai Thai Restaurant & Bar, and The Chocolat Bar.

“Guru Donuts is excited to invite local and visiting guests of the Indulge Boise Historic Downtown Food and Cultural Tour to taste our delicious donuts,” said Angel Moran, Owner of Guru Donuts. “We cannot think of a better way to learn about our beautiful city than through the taste buds. Our donuts are made fresh from scratch daily featuring local producers and growers, and we are proud of partnerships like these that draw people together to support small businesses and explore our hometown.”

Saturday tours include two stops at the Boise Farmers Market that incorporate tastings at Waffle Me Up and Mobley’s Craft Gelato. The tour also hopes to expose tour guests to the unique & exotic flavors found in various international cultures.

“It is very exciting to be a restaurant partner for the Historic Downtown Boise Food & Cultural Tour,” said Tara McElhose-Eiguren, Co-Owner of The Basque Market. “Indulge Boise is a wonderful addition to our community, promoting local food and experiences that will engage locals and visitors alike. We are proud to bring a little bit of the Basque Country to Boise and, as a result of the tours, look forward to reaching many who have not had the opportunity to experience our authentic Pintxos/Tapas.”

The goal of the tour is to educate, entertain, & expose local residents and visitors to the rich history and emerging culinary scene in the Treasure Valley.

The company previously announced its Indulge Boise Community Partners program. As part of this program, a portion of the proceeds from every tour ticket purchased will be donated to four local non-profit organizations. The organizations are The Salvation Army-Boise Corps, NAACP Treasure Valley Branch, Disabled American Veterans, and The CHANCE Foundation.

Tour prices start at $55 for adults. Group, child and adolescent pricing is also available. Customizable Private Group Tours are also available for companies, organizations, and teams.
