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

We were all given different famous Texans to be for the afternoon. Fun! Vanessa, the Tour Guide was animated and very fun to be with. I'll definitely come back. Dolores... More

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!
