Fully Guided. Easy Walking. Multi-Stop. Food Tasting Sightseeing Experience.


Enjoy amazing food while soaking up Dallas history on our food tasting and cultural walking tours. Come hungry, because on our Uptown Dallas tours our favorite restaurants serve up generous tasting plates. Our food tastings 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. Uptown Dallas is just one mile north of downtown Dallas, minutes from most hotels and convention center.

Tours operate daily. 2.5 to 3.5hr Tours. 5 - 7 minute walk in-between restaurants.

We specialize in public tours and private group events. Tours often sell out, advance purchase required.

I was in Dallas on business and arrived a day early so wanted a solo activity, where I'd feel comfortable. I did the 10.15am Sunday morning Uptown food tour. Three lovely and quite different places within Uptown, plus take-out desert from a bakery. Mari (sp?) our guide was not only very knowledgeable about the food choices but a passionate advocate...

My daughter & I went on the Uptown Food Tour with Jim as our guide. Great tour with a great guide! Gave me a better appreciation of Dallas and nice introduction to areas and restaurants that I wouldn't have thought of going. Would definitely go on this tour again.
