There's a new way to get a taste of Toledo and explore the rich history of downtown.

Mallory Guerrero took us along on a food tour through downtown toledo this afternoon.

Mallory and her mother DiAnn love taking food tours when they visit big cities, so they decided to create toledo flavors food tours.

DiAnn tells 13ABC, "were just hoping to get people excited about coming downtown outside of events because people just don't know what's happening down here." Toledo Flavors Food Tours will host its first "official" tour tomorrow but the business has offered some preview tours.

Mallory tells 13 ABC, "a lot of people say they felt like they were on vacation...because they learned so much about downtown that they didn't know before and they were excited to come back."

The tours hold food tastings at ....Packo's in the Park, Downtown Latte, All Crumbs Artisan Bakery, Verita's Cork and Craft, Grumpys on the Go, and The Blarney. The tours offer more than just food tastings, it highlights the history and the artistic flavors downtown Toledo has to offer.

Like recycled art- at Shared Lives Studio Businesses are throwing their support behind this new effort. Lori Schoen tells 13 ABC,

"I am for anything that continues to promote downtown and brings people here and exposes them to what's going on and new things its been wonderful for us...fabulous." Mark Stephens with Packo's in the Park tells 13 ABC, "Were just super excited to be a part of it ...we think it's a great addition to Toledo" Toledo Flavors offers food tours twice a week... starting tomorrow through mid September.

They're offered on Thursdays and Saturdays at 11 am. The costs is 42 dollars for adults and 30 for children 12 and under.
