The taste of the Strand food tour was excellent! The menu changes with the seasons but we stopped at little Mom and Pop joints, a very nice seafood restaurant on the water, a taco restaurant and a great German restaurant. Our guide was very knowledgeable and thoughtful. Highly recommend this tour.

Kay took us on the best Tapas tour for our 18th anniversary. She is so knowledgeable about Galveston and her love of the place shines through in every story. Great food, drinks, and company. We will definitely come back and do another. Highly recommended!

Karen "Special K" is an outstanding tour guide; she explained a lot about the history of the island and made an extra stop to show us a couple of buildings being renovated. We are taking food tours in every state and enjoy these stops almost as much as those with food. The quantity of food was maybe slightly more than what we've had at other tours. We were stuffed to the point we could hardly walk after the tour and believe we got excellent value for the price we paid. The best part for me was not having to remember to take pictures at each stop. She took pictures of all restaurant signs, the food, and of us at each location. She compiled a video presentation and sent it to us a few days later. This was a first for us. Highly recommend Karen and this tour!

So thankful to Special K and her husband V for the wonderful tour even though it was just my husband and I. Some other couples had canceled due to possibility of rain- it didn't but Special K was prepared with rain ponchos. Loved hearing the stories of places, people and cultures of Galveston. Great food and wonderful restaurants we were very full afterwards. I had put down that we were celebrating my birthday- wow- Special K and V really made it special- thank you so much!

We did the Pub and Grub tour which is just a walking tour with cocktails and finger foods. The cocktails were plenty strong, and the beer drinkers in the group said they enjoyed the local pairings. I wont give you to many details as it spoils the unknown, but we some of the best friend fish ever on this tour. We are food snobs and all the eating stops were definitely hidden gems, Get a fun group together and take this tour, you wont be disappointed! Shout out to Karen who was the host with most!!
