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, and the 1880s Victorian homes of Dallas' oldest surviving neighborhood. 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

This 2-3 hour food tour is a Must do if you are in the Dallas area. The walk is minimal, the food is great and my friends and I had a lot of fun meeting the others in our tour group. Also, our tour guide was the BEST!!!! Thanks to all for a great experience!

Vanessa was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and very precise! We enjoyed seeing a part of Dallas we really had not seen from that point of view! The tour was well-done and well worth the expense. Good job, Vanessa!

We had such a great time doing the Uptown tour! My husband & I were in the Dallas area to celebrate our anniversary, and I was looking for fun things for us to do while there. We visited so many different ethnic restaurants, and the variety was so much fun. We tried new things we probably wouldn't have, if we... More

We had visiting family in town, and the food tour was a fabulous way to show them around our new neighborhood (while discovering a bunch of new restaurants ourselves)! Thanks Vanessa!

I went with my work team and had a glorious time! Our guide was so informative and never boring! Food was fantastic, drinks were yummy, restaurants were generous and very lovely! We happened to go on a hot day so that's the only thing I would complain about! Can't help the weather though!

We're excited to hear that you had a great time with your office team. You're right, unfortunately we can't help the weather conditions but we try to provide a few things to help out. This summer, we'll have misters for our guests in hopes to help with the pending extreme heat among other things. We hope to see you again... More
