engage your mind, and delight you visually?

The reviews are rave, having a 5 Star rating on both YELP and TripAdvisor, among other sites.  Read them by selecting the BUY NOW button above.

If calendar is not showing available dates then check back at a later time! 

Note: “Fork in the River”is the only River Walk food tour, but is often there is no availability. However, we now have other exciting food news – we are now offering “Cooking Classes”. This will not be held at an institute or similar but at one of the most unique restaurants in the entire USA –  it’s not just unique, it’s also been named by USA today, “the # 1 “foodie place” in San Antonio (among other accolades)!  What is more, you’ll actually be instructed by a James Beard Award nominated chef who has been featured on several national and international TV food shows. For details, call (888) 368-6874.  We’re sure you’ll enjoy this just as much, if not more, than our highly rated food tour!


You’ll be sampling, not just any, but the Riverwalk’s finest, and for that matter – ALL of San Antonio.  Indeed, our 2 James Beard Award nominated Chefs and Ice Cream Maker are considered the best – period! We have designed a purposeful mix of casual and fine dining to give you an overview of River Walk offerings.  As of now, we have 3 tasting locations.

Last but not least, our tasting locations are found only on the River Walk – you will not find another elsewhere. They are not part of chains, hotels, etc.  They are uniquely San Antonio.  As an added twist, the cuisine will be tied in with the city’s culture from where it was inspired.  So, in both ways, you will be taking a truly San Antonio styled food tour!

Be sure to book your tour at the very beginning of your visit so that you can take advantage of a unique return offer provided only to tour participants, and more importantly, give yourself the opportunity to go back and experience the “full treatment” at the tastiest places in San Antonio!  No need to chance it elsewhere.  These places will have you hankering to return, and after the tour, you’ll know for yourself!


Naturally, you’ll be enjoying a 2nd benefit – a River Walk tour.  There’s nothing like a shady stroll along this renowned attraction, which you no doubt, were already hoping to explore.  You’ll engage not only its well known areas, but it’s more tranquil and beautiful spots which few visitors find!  In fact, our finer dining locations are situated there – away from the overcrowded restaurant & bar bend of the River Walk.  Additionally, you’ll learn its History and that of the River itself.


Now, add to the  “recipe”  our unique treatment of San Antonio’s fabled History which our guides are renowned for, including Alamo highlights.   As an added twist, the cultures (people) or historical events will often be tied in with the food they inspired.


But there’s more, we’ll include in the “misto” some surprising highlights of the city’s architecture   –  a further enhancement to the city’s character and your food tour of San Antonio.


               So, meet us where it all comes together,

Our San Antonio food tour begins at 3pm and concludes about 6pm.    TOURS START PROMPTLY  |  NO REFUNDS | NO CANCELLATIONS | NO EXCEPTIONS 


See list of tasting locations (3) above.  ALL are “local and legendary”.  They’re found only in San Antonio, and only along the River Walk!  They are not chain restaurants nor places attached to Hotels, etc.  They and the cuisine presented by them have their own unique character which makes this a truly San Antonio styled food tour not repeated elsewhere.  As many of our guests do, you may make dinner reservations at our fine dining restaurants while visiting them on the tour!


We will discuss significant highlights of each in a way only our guides can, and feel free during other times, where appropriate and pauses exist, to ask more about these topics, such as when stopping at our San Antonio restaurant locations.   If you want an in-depth discussion these topics or of the King William District, Private VIP tours,  etc., please visit:


We begin the tour at the Visitor Center located at 317 Alamo Plaza, San Antonio, TX 78205.  Be sure you are at the right visitor center at this address.  You may wait inside the visitor center and enjoy the  air conditioning till 3pm.  Please approach your guide who will be wearing a  purple shirt displaying “Food Tour” on the back
