Worthwhile fun tour.
Nov 2021
This was a fun experience visiting parts of the city we probably wouldn’t have visited otherwise. Our tour guide, Alicia, also included history of some of the buildings we visited and history of the city itself. The food & drinks were good as well. I highly recommend.

Amazing food tour
Our first, but definitely not our last walking food tour! We had a blast! Our guide Alicia was welcoming, kind and full of information and knowledge. My gluten intolerance was happily accommodated at all locations. We learned so much about SLO, the places we visited and the community in general. I loved hearing the stories, background and history of each eatery, bakery, chocolate shop, and wine & cheese shop we visited. It was a delightful afternoon. Highly recommend this tour if you are visiting from out of town and looking for a fun and filling afternoon.

Fantastic Food Walking Tour
Oct 2021
My wife and I have been on many food walking tours. It is something we really enjoy. We went on an the Taste of SLO Downtown Walking tour yesterday. What a wonderful time. Alicia our guide was excellent. She was informative, personable and funny. We learned a lot about downtown San Luis Obispo. We were able to see the inside of a room at a famous downtown hotel - formerly a brothel.

And then, of course, there was the food. Oh my. The food was excellent, fun and varied. We had barbecue, a Cuban sandwich, chocolates and pastries. All were incredibly good and the portions were large - we were so stuffed we skipped dinner last night. Additionally, we tried different beers (my wife had a hard cider) and drinks.

We highly recommend this tour. It was a 10.

BEST SLO EXPERIENCE EVER! FUN FOR EVERYONE!!!
Jul 2021
This is hands down the BEST adventure SLO has to offer. From the moment we met Angee we knew we were in for a real treat. We were greeted with smiles and our own private seating area at every stop. Being a life long local to the Central Coast, we went to places that I'd never been before but I'm guaranteed to return. The food was delicious and every single person on the tour had the same reaction. The servings are generous and Angee does a fabulous job of preparing you for what to expect on your stops (just in case you want to pace eating or drinking). One bit of that delicious BBQ and there was no turning back. Our tour included a stop at the Granada Hotel & Bistro which I've been wanting to try for yeas. We even got a tour of the Nighcap bar and the hotel!! Seriously folks, if you haven't booked yet I don't know what you are waiting for. Oh, maybe you want Sheila's Chocolates. One bit of her organic goodies and you won't buy chocolate from the store ever again. :-) Every place that we stoped Angee had waters waiting for us and a cool shaded or indoor spot to enjoy our treats. The tour included facts about the history of Downtown SLO and these establishments which was incredible to hear especially being a local (I had no clue).
This was our first walking food tour and we are already planning the next tour with Taste of SLO ~Walking Food Tour. I would do this again and again!

First Food Tour!
Jul 2021
This was our first food tour ever! We had an amazing time tasting our way through SLO! I didn't have one bad thing, I enjoyed every bite. My husband and I have never been on a food tour so this was such a treat for us. Definitely come hungry and leave full!

Something to do more often
Jun 2021
I do this sort of thing infrequently, but based on this experience, I must start doing it much more often. Angee was a friendly, outgoing, and knowledgeable hostess, and she brought us to a variety of excellent places to eat and drink. It was a very enjoyable way to spend a few hours in an interesting, vibrant city downtown, with the added bonus of being able to hang out with a nice group of people half my age.

Great flow, company and times

My husband and I had a great time during the downtown SLO food tour. We got to indulge in a healthy amount of food and cocktails and even discovered some unplanned new places/spots! Our hostess with the mostess is knowledgeable, kind and full of light. This was my kind of “hiking”. Highly recommend

Scrumptious learning event

Angee is an out of this world tour guide and food oficionado. Enjoyed experiencing SLO in this manner. Chichi Piñata was a trip! The history of the places we visited and proprietors we met was well worth it. The food and drinks were superb. Caution ⚠️ Go easy… there is A LOT of food and drink!
