What people are saying about this tour

Sip & Savor is one of, if not THE best, food tour we’ve ever done. Joe is very knowledgeable about the history of Santa Fe but also current Santa Fe which was helpful to us since he had great recommendations! The tour itself was fun and we really enjoyed every stop along the way. Can’t think of another tour we’ve done where the owners and chefs actually come out and talk to you about what they do - so interesting!

The food tour was a great way to explore the city. We had amazing food, and learned some very interesting facts about the development, architecture, and people. Joe is the owner of the business. A great guide. He was very attentive and thoughtful about the places that he took us to.
