Meeting Location

Northwest corner of the Santa Fe Plaza (Santa Fe, NM) (Exact meeting location details will be provided immediately upon purchase of tickets.)
Do I have to purchase tickets in advance? Can I pay cash for tickets?
Tickets must be purchased in advance, and tours often sell out quickly.  Please book well in advance to increase your chances of getting the day and time you prefer.  Tickets can be purchased with major credit cards.  Cash is not accepted.
If a tour is sold out, can I get on a waiting list?
We do not offer a waiting list for tours.  If the time slot you'd like is sold out, we suggest you check another date/time for availability!
What is the difference between the Sample Santa Fe Food Tour and the Taste of Santa Fe Food Tour?
On both tours, you will be exploring different aspects of Downtown Santa Fe, learning about the history and culture of the area, and visiting different restaurants where you will enjoy tastings. However, please note that the routes, restaurants, and historical tidbits are completely different on each of these tours.
How much do we walk? Is it a fast pace?
We walk approximately 1.5 - 2 miles on this tour over a 2.5 - 3 hour time span but with numerous stops.  Although we walk at a very leisurely pace, please remember to wear comfortable walking shoes.
How much food is served on a tour?
We will be stopping at approximately 6 places and sampling a variety of different foods.  For most people there will be enough food that lunch afterward is not necessary.
What if I have food allergies?
Please let us know when purchasing your tickets if anyone in your group has food allergies or other dietary restrictions. With advance notice we will do our best to accommodate you.
What restaurants will we stop at and what kind of food will we sample?
We will be stopping at a wide variety of specialty stores, eateries and restaurants. We choose a unique and delicious blend of flavors. For more information on the restaurants we visit, check out the "Description" tab.
Are there any beverages offered on the tour?
Every place offers water along the way and additional drinks can be purchased during the tour.
Can children come on the tour?
Children are welcome on the tour. It should be noted, however, that the tour is 2.5 - 3 hours long. Some children have a limited attention span and therefore the tour may not be appropriate for some of them. Parents, who know their children best, should assess the situation on a case by case basis and consider whether the tour is appropriate for their child. If you are bringing children under the age of 7 and they will not be participating in the tastings (or will share with you!), you do not need to purchase tickets for them. All other participants will require a full priced ticket.
Are tours given in bad weather?
These tours run rain or shine.  If the weather is bad, we will be able to go into many of the establishments along the way.  Please be sure to check the day's weather and dress appropriately.
Do I tip the tour guide?
Food Tour New Mexico does not include gratuities in the cost of the ticket.  A standard gratuity for a tour guide is 15%- 20% of the price.  If you have a great time, gratuities are graciously accepted by our tour guides.
Are tours pet friendly?
Although our four legged friends would love to taste too, due to the fact that we enter various food establishments, no pets are allowed on our tours.
Does the tour end at the same place that we start?
No.  We end about three blocks away from our original starting point.  However, a map will be provided and tour guides will be more than happy to help with directions.
Is the tour wheelchair and stroller accessible?
Yes. Every stop has sufficient access.
Do we only walk around and sample food?
No!  This is a three hour experience full of information, demonstrations, stories and great food.  Guests will be guided around some of Santa Fe’s best places by a real local that knows the ins and outs of this great western town.  Along the way we will point out great places to eat, shop and explore. 
Are bathrooms available on the tour?
Yes, there are bathrooms available at designated stops along the way.
Are cameras allowed on the tour?
Absolutely.  Both still and video cameras are allowed and encouraged along the tour.
