We were scheduled for a food tour, but had to cancel our trip to Dallas due to the recent suggestions on limiting travel. Shelly was extremely flexible on offering us options. We will definitely be going on a food tour with them when we reschedule our trip to Dallas.

Hi Kim, Thank you so much for this review. Most of our feedback is about the tour experience itself or our team of tour guides. Praise for our tour coordinators is truly appreciated. Shelly and Theresa are the heart of our small business and they always go above and beyond for our guests, our team and our partners restaurants. Now that we are slowly opening up small tours again our entire team has been working diligently to customize our experiences to so that guest safety is our first priority. We are proud of our partner restaurants for all of their new health and safety measures. You can now call us to book small group private experiences with a minimum of four guests. This option will be available online soon! We are also providing a new flexible cancellation policy, just in case plans change. Thank you again! We are looking forward to seeing you when you reschedule your trip to Dallas! Jodi Philippson

The owners were very understanding and compliant when we asked for a refund due to cancelling our plans because of the coronavirus. They offered many solutions but ultimately worked with us to make sure we were happy. My mom and I are sad we didn’t get to attend the tour but we

We will continue to safely, creatively, and flexibly do whatever is necessary for our guests, our team, and our partner restaurants. Thank you again for your support.

I would highly recommend this tour. The guide was very knowledgable about the city and the food was exceptional and were full size portions. Especially loved The Rustic. This tour is well worth the money.

Thank you for the amazing review! The Rustic is one of our favorite partner restaurants. Upscale southern comfort food at its best - cactus fritters, wild boar empanadas, pimento cheese queso, and peanut butter ice box pie. And that's just one of four stops! I really appreciate that you also experienced our tour as a good value and "well worth the money." For the eight years we've been in business we have always done our best to create worthwhile experiences for our guests, our team, and our partner restaurants.

This tour was fun and filling! We visited three places with plenty of time to sit, talk and enjoy. Enjoyed all three and ate at least two items I had never had before (not native to Dallas). There are some accomodations if you have certain dietary restrictions. Fourth place was

Thank you so much for this wonderful review! Our Uptown & West Village Foodie Walk is our original tour. Its been around since 2012 and over the years our partners restaurants have done an amazing job creatively accommodating dietary restrictions and food allergies. Our gluten free and vegan guests LOVE the menu substitutions, especially the lettuce wrapped beet burger! And I'm so glad you enjoyed the food portions. No one leaves our tours hungry!

We took the West Village Restaurant Hop with Shelly and it did not disappoint. We have done twelve different food tours, but the last three were kind of skimpy on food. This food tour was not. We ate delicious Angus beef sliders, yam fries, hummus, baba ganoush, beef and lamb

Hi Matthew, thank you so much for the great review! Wow! You've done twelve food tours and highly recommend Food Tours of America. What an honor. We are locally owned and operated and we pride ourselves on our guests not leaving hungry after their foodie adventure with us. We also make sure to provide memorable sightseeing experiences, and optional alcohol pairings on each of our tours. We'll be sure to let Shelly know how much you enjoyed her Uptown & West Village Foodie Walk and we'll look forward to seeing you on our Taste of Texas Deep Ellum Tour or our JFK Food & Culture Tour the next time you're in Dallas!
