Great Tour
, Sep 2019
Our guide, Lauren was fabulous and highly recommend her. I loved the appetizer and dessert courses. The only issue I have is that the main courses (comparison of New Mexican vs. Mexican cuisine) were very spicy and I could not eat them. The owner did offer to bring me something else, so she was very attentive to my needs. In the future, perhaps they can offer dishes that has the chilies on the side. Otherwise, the tour was great....very informative and fun.
Jay was great!

This was our second time in Santa Fe, but the first food tour. I have done other food tours, but this one was by far the best. Jay was our guide and he was great. He was knowledgeable about the history of Santa Fe and took us to some great places to sample the local fare. I highly recommend taking this tour!
Great Tour for Foodies & Drink"ie"s

To begin with, our guide Jay could not have been nicer. He was considerate enough to try to contact two people who weren't at the meeting point on time before beginning the tour (They made it before we had gone very far.). He was energetic and informative about the food and restaurant scene, including the history of the places we visited and some others we did not. It was easy to see that he has a passion for the tings he's talking about. He was also considerate of the folks on the tour to make sure everyone was comfortable. He even seemed to have built a genuine rapport with the people who spoke with us at the establishments we visited. At each restaurant, we were given enough food to really get an idea of the type of cuisine each had to offer. By the end of the tour, we had definitely had a whole meal. This included wine and drinks as well. At the distillery, we also sampled several spirits. One person in our group even bought a bottle to take home. Several people also made reservations at the restaurants on the spot. At each establishment, we got to meet at least one of the owners/chefs/sommeliers and in each case, they spent time with us explaining the food and drink we were experiencing. The food covered everything from authentic New Mexican to some of the highest rated cuisine in the city. And it was all within walking distance of the Railway District. This was a fantastic experience, especially for the price. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Santa Fe.
Excellent Intro to the Railyard Possibilities
, Jul 2018
We visited a small portion of the vastly spread out Railyard area, but walking through the whole deal was certainly an experience you don't get on a drive by. The four places we stopped for food and libation were distinctively different and had excellent offerings. Four of us went back in the evening to the State Capitol Restaurant on Sandoval for the chef's tasting which was exquisite, but $$$$. Our guide, Jay, was very informed about Santa Fe history, and shared it in an engaging manner. And, the more booze we sampled, the funnier Jay got! 😄

What a great, fun, friendly, relaxed food and walking tour! Jackie was delightful, and took us to some off-the-beaten path places in the Railyard district. We learned a lot, drank, and ate great food. Don't eat much before the tour, and get ready to enjoy beer, wine, margarita, and spirits.

This tour was truly an unexpected delight. We were treated like VIPs by owners of really special establishments who took their personal time to explain the history of their place, or how dishes were made, or how a tiny change in the distillation process changes your favorite whiskey. Samples included. Joe is a great tour guide and he conceived and created this tour so he's very much a part of it. Don't miss it.

This was okay. I thought it was a bit pricey all things considered. I know that some people consider alcohol an important part of a food tour. However, I'm more interested in the food aspect. : That may just be me. One stop is all alcohol, so I was a little disappointed in that stop. Our guide was very good. She was quite knowledgeable about the area, and the variety was good.

What a great way to experience Santa Fe! Joe, our tour guide, definitely loves his town and enjoyed showing us some of his favorite restaurants. Getting to meet the owners at each stop, who genuinely appeared to enjoy sharing stories about their establishments and/or how they came to serve what's on their menus, made this a particularly unique and enjoyable tour. The small group made it feel like you were sharing meals with new friends. A great tour!

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We enjoyed 3 delicious food samples along with an alcohol pairings plus a liquor tasting. The food samples were substantial. We enjoyed meeting owner or chef of each establishment. I would recommend this tour.
