Come hungry, because on our Uptown Dallas tours we serve up generous tasting plates in our favorite casual local restaurants. Our tours are enough for lunch! In addition to our sit-down restaurant tastings and entertaining Dallas commentary, some of our tours also feature several historic attractions unique to Uptown such as the McKinney Avenue antique trolleys. Uptown Dallas is just one mile north of downtown Dallas, minutes from most hotels and convention center. We specialize in public tours and private group events. Tours often sell out, advance purchase required. « less

Vanessa, our tour guide for the West Village walking tour was awesome! She was very friendly and knowledgeable. I'm from Dallas and still learned quite a bit from her about the history of the area. Would reccomend this to friends and family for sure!

My husband and I decided to take time out of visiting our daughter in Dallas and learn some history of the area, so we planned a JFK tour. Our tour guide Jim was a wealth of knowledge! His background as a city planner gave us great insight into this very historical part of town. Who knew that Jackie Kennedy never... More

My wife and I have been on several food tours in several different cities. It typically is our favorite way to experience a city, as it usually provides a pretty solid glimpse into its culture and history in such a short amount of time. We went on the JFK/Uptown tour and unfortunately this tour was by far our least favorite... More

My husband and I loved the tour. We felt welcomed to the city and learned quite a bit. The food selections were a nice sample of what the local restaurants had to offer. It helped us decide what restaurants would be our favorite if we were to return to Dallas. I strongly believe that this tour depends on the group... More

Five friends and I joined this tour. Our guide Jim had a wealth of Dallas knowledge that he shared with us throughout the afternoon. I found what he had to say interesting and helpful to paint a picture of life in Dallas. The food started off with two superb tastings, followed by good and ended with a marginal one. Overall...
