What people are saying about OTown Food Tours

“My husband and I were able to do O Town Food Tour for a Friday night! We had a blast with the other guests and Rick himself. Lots of funny stories and also great food! I was definitely hesitant about the brussel sprouts we had at Table 25 but they were absolutely amazing! For sure a must try. The poached pears we had were not only stunning to look at but the perfect dessert. One of our favorite parts of the tour was walking down 25th Street hearing about all the original brothels and darker history of Ogden. I definitely would do this tour again! My husband and I still talk about how much fun we had!”
