Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Angee is a perfect person to guide you through a SLO adventure. Despite adhering to a relatively strict timeline, her laid-back attitude made the journey comfortable. She always had time to talk with each individual and made efforts to include everyone in the conversation. She dropped little trivia nuggets along the way, demonstrating deep knowledge and understanding of her town. Angee's evident love for SLO is genuine and infectious. I found myself leaning into my wife and whispering, "I love SLO."

Thank you, Angee, for a beautiful experience!

PS, the food and wine were a fantastic perk!

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.

Angee was a great hostess! We were visiting from out of town and chose this tour from talking with Angee two years ago as a waitress at a restaurant. She was just starting "Taste of SLO" back then. Our group included four individuals and two additional guests were part of it. She made us feel all welcomed and she has a great sense of humor and knowledge of SLO.
Angee selected some of the best restaurants in SLO. Not one was a disappointment! From succulent Tri-tip to decadent ice cream to hearty bread - all were delicious! She knew the proprietors and managers at all locations and had a very personal connection with all of them. The establishments were welcoming and generous with their serving sizes. I would highly recommend this tour with everyone and anyone! Thank you Angee!!

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.

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.

This tour exceeded my expectations! It was an extremely worthwhile experience. Our tour guide, Angee, was fun, personable, and knowledgeable! The entire tour was well-organized, the food establishments were welcoming, and the overall experience was awesome. We came hungry, and left stuffed!! I would highly recommend the tour to anyone who appreciates good food and drinks and is interested in sampling from and learning about some of SLO's best spots.

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.

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!

Angee was abfun friendly and informative tour guide! It was a great experience! The food is delicious but a little light for our expectations of a food tour, but the alcohol was abundant. We had a few types of meat to taste, some beans and a corn cake at the first location with indoor dining serving beer, wine, cider, or kombucha, after a 10-15 minute walk along the creek we arrive at the second spot that had a piece a bree, a few crackers, and spoon of honey with a red and white wine taste, third location was a hotel, bar and bistro we had a Cubano sandwich piece, and salad served family style with a cocktail of your choosing. We also got a tour of the boutique hotel portion. The next stop had a lemon meringue tartlet and a chocolate mini cupcake with a delicious ganache, last we had a macaroon at a store that only sold them. The last location did not have a restroom but every other location did. After all the alcohol we wished it had. Overall a great experience but don't come too hungry.
