Yes, Taste of SLO Food Tours are OPEN!

As we all know, these are unprecedented times and Taste of SLO and our partner restaurants are doing the best we can to offer a fun & delicious tour. Please be aware that tours may move at a slower pace, and at the restaurants we feature. We are all adjusting to the new normal. Tours are a social event, and include some family style meals. As in one plate, everyone takes a portion, individually and sanitarily. Since this is an eating and drinking event, masks aren’t something everyone can wear all the time. Please keep this in mind when booking tickets. If you are high risk, or highly self aware of stringent social distancing, this social tour may not be for you.
Alternatively, guests are welcome to book a private tour for their loved ones only by contacting us directly.
Tours require 4 guests to run. If minimum guests are not met, guests may choose to cancel the tour or pay the private group deposit to tour at least 24 hours in advance.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★It is said that simply tasting enlightens ones senses .... this tour does just that - it captures the true essence of the foods sampled and the venues visited. Bravo to Angee for offering a fun filled afternoon.
Michelle G. San Luis Obispo, CA
★ ★ ★ ★ ★This was awesome- PERFECT afternoon activity for both SLOCals and out-of-towners. Angee is the perfect host- bubbly, funny, and has an awesome grasp on SLO's culture and history despite not having grown up here. As a 20+ year resident, it was so much fun to get out and walk and discover spots I hadn't heard of, hadn't tried, or hadn't thought of in a long time. Thank you Angee for a delightful afternoon of amazing food and libations- and the good walk. I'll be back for sure!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★WOW! We weren't expecting this much fun. We weren't expecting to discover so many great places. The tour offers plenty of freshly made tastes of sweets and breads as well as a meal of the best BBQ in . Great food is mingled with great local beers and wines. The tour is a great value. The walking is refreshing and gets you ready for your next tastes. Angee nailed it. She brings such a great vibe to the experience and is a perfect tour guide and hostess. We want to bring her on all our outings. Loved it.

Amanda B. San Luis Obispo, CA
★ ★ ★ ★ ★I've lived in San Luis Obispo for over 3 years and this food tour introduced me to so many restaurants that I had no idea existed! Angee, our tour guide, was awesome and super knowledgeable. The tour lasted about 4 hours and during that time we went to 6 different restaurants. Total value too, as both my husband and I were stuffed from all of the delicious food we ate! Whether you're a local or a tourist, put this on your list of "must do" in SLO!

Andrea C. Woodland Hills, CA
★ ★ ★ ★ ★For the full San Luis Obispo experience Taste of SLO Walking Food Tour is a must. Walk along down town San Luis Obispo with a group of food lovers to multiple locations where you will taste SLO local favorites. Enjoy food and drink from some of the most talked about restaurants, down-town breweries, and wine bars. Angee the owner and tour guide, is incredibly knowledgeable about the business that she takes you to and her fun-loving personality make for great entertainment. Bring along your best friends and make new ones as you bond over good food and drink. Hands-down one of the best experiences. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something fun to do on the Central Coast.
