Our most popular tour, this is the classic Santa Fe food & drink adventure. We will explore the downtown Historic Plaza neighborhood by foot while sampling the best in local food and wine. You will have a chance to sample classic New Mexican flavors, as well as get a taste of what’s new and exciting in Santa Fe’s food scene. Along the way, you’ll learn about the city’s long and fascinating history, with an emphasis on how Native, Hispanic, and Anglo cultures shaped – and were shaped by – the region’s unique (and delicious!) food culture.
NOTE: all of our tours are designed with adventurous eaters in mind. All tastings have been curated and pre-selected. We are able to offer vegetarian and gluten free alternatives at all tour stops - you will have an opportunity to indicate this during the checkout process.
Meet chefs, restaurant owners, and winemakers. Chat with them and hear what makes their restaurant special.
