Orlando, February 28, 2022 — Original Orlando Tours, Orlando’s top–rated and family–owned local tour company, has partnered with ICON Park, Orlando’s most innovative and diverse attraction, to launch its new Flavors of ICON Park Foodie Walking Tour.
The Flavors of ICON Park Foodie Walking Tour leads guests on a delicious loop around some of Orlando’s tastiest restaurants to sample a portion of what makes their flavors so special. Between the stops, tour guides share the fascinating history of ICON Park. Afterwards guests will take in breathtaking views of the Orlando skyline with a ride on The Wheel, ICON Park’s 400–foot signature attraction. The night caps off with an optional return to any of the restaurants from the tour to enjoy a full meal, beverage or dessert while enjoying a minimum ten percent discount on their purchases.
“The DNA of Original Orlando Tours is to share our love of Central Florida with our guests by leading them on extraordinary adventures while delivering an unparalleled experience and superior hospitality,” said Rich Bradley, President and CEO of Original Orlando Tours. “We are thrilled that Original Orlando Tours is launching its latest walking tour adventure with ICON Park, who embodies the excitement, quality and guest–first philosophy that we believe in. They host a tremendous selection of Orlando’s finest restaurants and unique attractions to share with locals and visitors alike as together we create a wonderful night.”
