About Flower City Food Tours

Flower City Food Tours was started to offer locals and visitors a distinctive and delicious experience to get a taste of unique neighborhoods in the Rochester area.

Pittsford Food Tours launched in late April of 2017 and continues to offer guests an opportunity to enjoy the sites and the bites along Schoen Place and Pittsford Village on the Erie Canal.

With much enthusiastic interest in tasting experiences in other areas, Park Avenue Food Tours launched in August in 2017. Although each tour (Wednesday & Sunday) is slightly different, each welcomes guests to get a true flavor of this popular and trendy neighborhood.

We invite you to Eat, Experience and Enjoy your way through some of the area's favorite places. Local tour guides look forward to sharing their knowledge and highlighting historical, architectural and cultural points of interest along the way.

Let us take you on a memorable journey one delicious bite at a time!
