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 1880's 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

I went on a tour a few weeks ago, and Vanessa was a great tour guide. I definitely enjoyed learning more about the city of Dallas and the restaurants that it makes up. Will definitely recommend this to my friends.

Upon reading the outstanding reviews on Trip Advisor I thought this would be a great way to spend the last leg of our anniversary weekend. We met at Baboush and were warmly greeted by Vanessa. I can't say enough about how wonderful Vanessa's personality was and how informative and enthusiastic she was about her job. Baboush was the first restaurant... More

Vanessa created a fabulous fun tour. The rain did not damper her enthusiasm. I would have probably liked more walking but given the weather this worked well. I loved learning about the uptown neighbirhood and the trolley which we then used throughout our trip. It's a gem!!!

We were excited about the possibility however everything from the portion sizes to the uninteresting "historical" walk fell far short of expectations. We started at Baboush which actually was delicious and promising. We then quickly took a trolley to Uptown Pub and had one White Castle sized pork slider and four swallows of beer which was advertised as a flight.... More

We had a wonderful time seeing uptown and eating at some great local places. Our tour guide Vanessa was excellent. You should definitely consider this tour while in town. The trolley ride was a nice touch too.

We had such an amazing time on the food tour. Our tour guide Vanessa was so fun and bubbly with a great personality that made the tour that much better. Her knowledge of the history of Dallas and the restaurants we visited was impeccable. We had fun trying new restaurants and meeting new people. A great Dallas experience!!

I had looked online at this tour several times and just couldn't get it out of my head! It was a wonderful end to my first trip to Dallas and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I sent pictures to my cousin throughout the tour as she was working and she was very jealous. It was fabulous food and... More

Our original plan was nixed because of complications so we decided to do this. Wow! Is all I can say. This was a fantastic few hours of great food, fun history, great people, and an amazing tour guide (Jim). We went to four local restaurants and had dessert from another. All of the food was great and its awesome to... More

Found this online and wanted to give it a try while we were visiting Dallas from NC. Great time! Vanessa, our guide, was entertaining and knowledgeable. Our group had a great time and ended up hanging out beyond the tour time. The food was good and restaurants were great and hospitable. Highly recommend that you do this early on in... More
