Half-Day Santa Fe Food and History Walking Tour

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 110.00
2 travellers
    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. 
    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.
    A few favorite stops on this tour are listed below. Please note we visit four of these per tour (not all).
    • Cheesemongers of Santa Fe
    • Sazon
    • Coyote Cafe
    • Gruet Winery Tasting Room
    • Noisy Water Winery 
    • La Lecheria New Mexico Craft Ice Cream
    • El Callejon
    • Eloisa
    • Del Charro Saloon
    Historical and cultural sights you will see are listed below. Please note that we do not visit or go inside any of these sites, but rather they are seen from the exterior and discussed during the historical portion of the tour.
    • Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis
    • Loretto Chapel
    • Santa Fe Plaza
    • Palace of the Governors

    While it is pretty hot in Santa Fe right now, this walk is only 50% outdoors. You stop at restaurants and eat indoors (in AC) and get water at every stop. When you are walking outdoors, you will have moments without shade... More
