    One of the best
    One of the best food tours I've ever done. Excellent food at each stop - I couldn't pick a favorite because they were all that good. Ang was a great tour guide and a pleasure to spend the afternoon with. Highly recommend!!!

    Do not miss this!
    This tour was selected for us as part of a holiday package and we couldn’t have enjoyed it more! A great selection of eateries who offered delicious tastings of food and drinks that made us want to come back. Every visit was extremely well organised and we were made welcome at each venue. Tasting portions were substantial and we definitely didn’t need dinner afterwards! A huge thank you to our guide Victoria who made the whole experience both fun and informative. Highly reccomend!

    Victoria is victorious
    We came to town to visit our Cal Poly student and took him on the Mojo food tour. We had a great time with Victoria. She was a wonderful guide and host for the various restaurants which were all good. We went away happy and full.

    Great foot, great tour, great fun!
    What a great way to see this unique and special city and sample/experience so many different styles of food. I had a blast hearing about the local restaurants, the local products and hearing the stories of the people that make small towns like SLO (and the mojo tour) so wonderful and important to our melting pot of a country. The tour definitely brings to life the stores of the owners, their food and the community for us all to enjoy. Huell Howser would have been proud to walk with our group and share in this time as well 🤗 And yes come hungry, and you will leave extremely happy!

    Amazing and Delicious!
    This tour was just so good - everything from start to finish - the food, drink and our tour guide, Angee! Why do you go on a food tour - to taste food at different restaurants and local cuisine - this tour does NOT disappoint! We made 5 stops and tasted some amazing food and drinks, too! The variety of the food was nice - from pizza to thai! The portions were very generous at each stop that we could barely finish the food at our last tasting stop. Angee was a great tour guide with her knowledge of the restaurant stops, SLO and the entire area. Our group of 4 had so much fun! If you live locally or on vacation visiting this area - highly, highly recommend this tour. It's the perfect mix of food, drink and fun! Thanks, Angee!!

    Second Time Around As Good As the First
    I took the downtown tour two years ago, and it was so good that I decided to do the uptown tour on a recent trip. Now, sometimes when you go back to repeat a great experience, the second time around is a letdown or a downright disappointment. NOT the case here. The second time was just as good as the first, if not better. Victoria was a wonderful host - personable, friendly, and knowledgeable about the places we visited and SLO in general. And I was fortunate to share the experience with three other customers who were as friendly and personable as Victoria. I can't say enough good things about this experience.

    Great food tour
    Highly recommend this food walking tour!! You won't be disappointed! I can't wait to do the downtown one when we return. Angee is an incredible tour guide! She was fun, personable and knowledgeable. Not only was ALL the food delicious and PLENTIFUL, learning about all the business and town was so interesting, We will definitely be returning to these restaurants and exploring more of the menu. All the restaurant owners/servers were very accommodating and very pleasant.

    SLO Food Tours for restaurant advice
    The MOJO food tour exceeded our expectations. Our son goes to Cal Poly SLO so we visit him a few times a year. SLO Food Tours is the most perfect way to discover restaurants in a new town. Now we have our list of go-to places. Victoria was the perfect host for our tour. Well informed, engaging, and friendly are words that can describe her. My whole family agreed that she was genuinely interested in us and that we have a terrific time. She also clued us on places to visit for brunch the next morning, which was also a success. The restaurants samplings were all terrific. Every item was great. the owner of Benny's Pizza came out and chatted with us for 5 minutes and told us the backstory of the restaurant. Pizza was amazing. SLO Provisions was so good that we went there the next morning to get some of the treat we had on the tour. Mama Gauche, 1865 Craft House, and Papa Thai are equally good.

    Amazing food tour off the beaten path
    Highly recommend this tour! Our guide, Victoria, was amazing. We’ve lived in SLO for several years but most of the places on the tour were new to us and we loved them all. The Detroit-style pizza and the Khao Soi were standouts. Definitely come hungry — we ended the tour stuffed!

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.

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!

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.

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!

A great variety of foods ranging from American barbecue to Peruvian. The tour ended with several dessert stops too! Angee, our guide, was great. Not only was she knowledgeable about the food, but also about the history of the area and some of the buildings visited. Highly recommend!

My fiancé and I just moved to SLO and was gifted this tour for my birthday. We booked the tour the first weekend in town and it was the perfect way to be introduced to some of the best downtown local spots! Angee (the tour guide and owner) planned it out the three hours perfectly. This is an ideal activity for anyone visiting, but great for locals too :)

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.
