Fully Guided. Easy Walking. Cultural. Multi-Stop. Food Tasting Experience.

       

Enjoy amazing food while soaking up Dallas history on our food tasting and cultural walking tours. Come hungry, because on our Uptown Dallas tours our favorite restaurants serve up generous tasting plates. Our food tastings 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.

Tours operate daily. 2.5 to 3.5hr Tours. 5 - 7 minute walk in-between restaurants.

We specialize in public tours and private group events. Tours often sell out, advance purchase required.

This is the first tour that I have ever taken in Dallas and it was really fun! The tour guide did a great job with getting everyone warmed up to each other and sharing stories with one another.

It's a nice tour where you would meet other people. Our tour guide was very informative and knew his history very well! Stopped by 6 places; first being a Mediterranean place, seafood spot, Italian place, ate macaroons, ate some jalapeño poppers and then went to a place that were famous for their peanut butter pie.
