Elysa Crum, originally from New York, is a longtime Tucson resident. Her passion for food, education and an appreciation of Tucson’s culture and history inspired her to create Taste of Tucson Downtown. With the revitalization of Downtown, including an influx of new offices, housing, restaurants and the modern streetcar, this is the perfect time to explore & learn about our city. We are excited to lead foodies, families, friends, visitors and locals on our tour experiences. Book one of our tours today and see why Tucson is a UNESCO City of Gastronomy!
Born in south central Kansas and after graduating from college, Ann taught school in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She moved to Tucson in 1978 and enjoyed an extensive career as a receptionist and business manager for an orthodontic practice. Upon retiring, she was offered the opportunity to assist on the tours which allowed her to continue to meet and interact with others and share her love of Tucson. Ann is also a volunteer barista at her church. She loves spending time with family, friends, walking, reading and road trips.
The Tucson AZ area is now home to Jennifer Slaght. Jennifer is a Coast Guard military brat, a 21-year retired USAF Loadmaster, and continues her adventures with her active-duty partner. She has traveled the world. Growing up, her family always explored as much of each location as possible, as they knew their stays would be short. During her career, she traveled to many overseas locations and took the opportunity to see and taste as much as she could. Her travel passion has led her to develop an in-depth knowledge of the food and art of the regions she visits. She looks forward to sharing Tucson's history and culinary delights with you.
