Beginning June 1, food lovers will be able to eat and explore their way through Downtown Las Vegas like never before with a private, self-guided, e-assisted culinary tour created by Finger Licking Foodie Tours. The brand-new company represents a follow-up, companion business to the successful Lip Smacking Foodie Tours created by Las Vegas entrepreneur and hospitality-industry veteran, Donald Contursi.
The new self-guided Finger Licking Foodie Tour offers guests a fun and innovative way to support three top restaurants in the Las Vegas community, while enjoying an array of Instagrammable dishes in one outing. Each tour requires a minimum of just two patrons, so guests can safely dine with their closest family and loved ones.
With restaurant capacities limited due to public health restrictions and reservations at the hottest restaurants challenging, Finger Licking Foodie Tours provide immediate VIP seating with signature dishes served fresh, shortly after arrival. Tours are “led” by a virtual tour guide who provides a map of the route, interesting tidbits along the way and a guided walk through Downtown Container Park to support local small businesses.
“This tour provides an intimate and personalized foodie experience,” explains Contursi. “Guests receive an online map, as well as a link to an innovative virtual tour guide who provides commentary for each fascinating stop along the way including a walk through Downtown Container Park to support small businesses. On this 2.5-hour experience in the city’s exciting, revitalized downtown, guests will visit three acclaimed restaurants, enjoying superb service and three unforgettable dishes at each venue.”
Contursi founded Lip Smacking Foodie Tours five years ago to offer gourmet walking tours featuring prime-time dining and VIP service at the most exclusive restaurants. After quickly accumulating numerous accolades and repeat customers, he expanded on the concept with Finger Licking Foodie Tours, which was established in 2019 to provide a casual romp at affordable prices.
In addition to the self-guided tour, Finger Licking Foodie Tours offers two guided group tours: The Las Vegas Strip Foodie Tour provides a 2.5-hour afternoon experience leaving plenty of time for a night out on the town afterward. Guests visit four exciting stops on each tour, which combines sensational sight-seeing with craveable dishes. Each tour’s itinerary remains under wraps for maximum anticipation and surprise. Knowledgeable and charismatic local guides keep the atmosphere lively by spotlighting some of the most distinctive sights and fascinating facts along the way. Guests who opt for the Downtown Las Vegas Foodie Tour enjoy the same benefits while visiting four neighborhood restaurants run by local chefs who have made a name for themselves in the dynamic, art-filled, revitalized downtown.
Finger Licking Foodie Tours start at the accessible price point of just $79 per person and includes three restaurants and three dishes at every stop. Gratuity is included for each restaurant. Additionally, a 15 percent discount is offered to guests on beverages and additional menu items. Each tour is designed for singles, couples and groups of friends or families.
