Half-Day Santa Fe Food and History Walking Tour
From US$110.00
Overview
Explore downtown Santa Fe's best food and wine venues on a half-day walking tour led by an informative guide. Get a taste of new developments in Santa Fe’s food scene and sample classic New Mexican flavors when you stop into several local eateries. You'll also visit landmarks like the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis, Loretto Chapel, and Palace of the Governors. Your guide shares commentary about the city’s history and the mix of cultures that have shaped its food culture throughout the leisurely walking tour.
What to Expect
Meet at 1pm in front of First National Santa Fe Bank on the Plaza. Over the course of the tour, you'll walk approximately a mile and a half while visiting two sit-down restaurants, a winery tasting room, and one additional food or drink establishment. 
This is a walking tour. YOU MUST BE IN GOOD WALKING CONDITION AND ABLE TO WALK 1.5 MILES TO FULLY ENJOY THIS TOUR.
What brings this tour to life is the stories behind the restaurants you'll get a chance to visit. You'll learn about how New Mexican food was shaped over centuries by a mixing of different culinary traditions. You will visit both Santa Fe's most traditional "must eat at" Mexican/New Mexican restaurants as well as some of the newest, currently "trending" restaurants.

I would contact the owner (he also gives the tours) before & they can probably call the stops ahead to make arrangements. I think the taco place was the only one with meat & they can do veg w beans I’m sure.
