San Antonio food tour.

Emily was a wonderful tour guide. All the food we sampled was delicious. In addition to the food we were given a little history of the places.
Great Tour Guide

The tour Guide was awesome. You can tell she really cares about what she is doing. It is entirely too much walking, especially if it is a hot day. I think the venues should be closer together and the history part of the tour should be on the venues you are going to. Our group felt like we were literally taking a walking tour of the entire downtown and the surrounding area. As I said, tour guide was great and very personable with all attending the tour.

This was our 1st Food type tour. JOSH our guide was excellent, couldn’t fault him. Knowledgeable, friendly and funny. Would definitely do another food related tour. The food was great and the walk between stops was enjoyable.

We thought that for the price of the food tour, we felt that there wasnt enough value. The samples were small. We have taken 5 other foodie tours in various cities as a comparison. Perhaps at one restaurant, the tour company can give everyone a nice beverage. A foodie tour in New Orleans did this. Or do one more stop. The guide was good and helpful.

This tour was more of a history of San Antonio and an introduction to San Antonio's diverse food culture. I really loved Panaderia and their freshly out of oven-baked goods brought out by the owner who explained the history and the baking process. I didn't care for a creme brulee from a French bakery owned by French immigrant who loves San Antonio. Although I loved the story, I can get creme brulee anywhere and I wanted a something more of a local item, something I can only get in San Antonio. We visited 5 locations pulled pork bun, pastry, special taco, creme brulee, and guacamole, but since the portion size was small, I wasn't full at the end. For the same price, I enjoyed Taste San Antonio Food Tour better. You do however, learn a lot about the history of San Antonio and walk off the calories. It was nice the tour guide provided us the water bottle in the beginning.

Was disappointed in the amount of food provided. Had a lot of fun but not worth the money for the taste of food you get. The bakery was amazing and the only place you get a real portion of food.

This tour was wonderful! There was a variety of food options Cuban sandwich, street tacos, pan dulce, hand made guacamole, iced popsicle treats. All the food was excellent. We were full after the tour and just had some snacks back at the hotel for dinner. The walk was fairly long, but, the pace was good. Our guide, Jordan, was young but friendly and knowledgeable. All-in-all, I would highly recommend taking this tour.

This was an amazing food tour! Mike was great. He was enthusiastic. We were in a group of 13 but it did not feel that big. He took us to places the locals go, which is what we were looking for. Easily walkable. Each place was better than the previous one. During our walk from restaurant to restaurant, Mike gave us local history about the buildings we passed. Mike is one of the reasons my girlfriend and I fell in love with San Antonio!

This food tour was fun, satisfying especially in the selection and quantity of food sampling and well worth the effort. Our guide, Kevin, was friendly and anxious to please. Highly recommended!

Kevin is a great friendly, knowledgeable, and seemed to be an all around good guy.I have already recommended this tour to friends we had a real good time and not only did we get to meet new people, eat great food at places we have never seen before, we also got some exercise. We live in Texas and have been to San Antonio many times without the knowledge of what great food was offered in that part of town. Anyway, this is worth trying out.

This was a great way to learn about SA and taste some excellent dishes. I especially liked that it wasn't all about the Riverwalk restaurants because there's so much more to downtown to see and taste. Janelle was an excellent guide with a great personality and fun spirit.

A lot of fun - easy walk through downtown San Antonio w/ stops at terrific restaurants, a bakery and a light dessert venue. Good info from the guide, as well, and made several new friends! I'd recommend this to anyone with 3 hours to spare and a desire to see behind the proverbial curtain a little bit at these eateries. Great event!

Very affordable and great food! Erin was very knowledgeable of the city's history as well. You're taken to the well kept secrets that the locals go to. We wish we had taken this tour at the beginning of our trip instead of the end. There were some restaurants on the River Walk that are touristy and just okay at best.

A fun experience! It was great to hear about local San Antonio happenings, past and present. We had some fabulous food and drinks at our 5 stops. The walking was not too much for me, and I am certainly no athlete. This was our first food tour and it was great planning to do it early during our stay in San Antonio. We went back to one of the stops for dinner later in the week.

The food provided was delicious and included a nice variety of dishes that are unique to SA. The tour also provides a great overview of the history of SA and many buildings in the downtown area. Our tour guide (Jordan) was knowledgable on all things SA as well as the restaurants and provided food
