The Experience

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.
