This is a walking tour. This total distance we will walk is 1.5 miles, so you MUST BE IN GOOD WALKING CONDITION TO FULLY ENJOY THE TOUR
This tour is a shorter, more casual version of our four hour “Sip and Savor” tour. We will explore the downtown Historic Plaza neighborhood by foot while sampling the best in local food and hidden gems that you’d only find with one of our food-obsessed guides. This tour focuses mostly on street food, and is best suited for adventurous eaters looking to experience authentic flavors. 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 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.
Visit the hidden gems tucked away from the touristy crowds of Santa Fe’s downtown Plaza
Available Thursday and Saturday afternoons from 2:00-4:30pm
Departure point: Santa Fe Plaza (precise directions including with booking confirmation)
In order to fit in four tastings and the walking tour in 2.5 hours, most tastings are eaten by hand while standing. We provide napkins of course, but if you are not comfortable eating while on the go, this isn’t the tour for you.
NOTE: the portions on this tour are the smallest of all of our tours. Generally most people find the tour to be a filling afternoon, but we do recommend a light lunch the day of your tour. For those specifically interested in a full dinner experience we recommend looking at our Taste of Canyon Road tour.
