San Antonio Food Tours

Can a single tour excite your taste buds,

stimulate your mind, and delight you visually?


YES!  FORK IN THE RIVER is the ONLY food tour of the beautiful River Walk and the highest rated of any.  This “walking tour” delivers just such an unparalled tour experience by combining FOUR unmistakable cultural influences of San Antonio into one most engaging tour, and the reviews are rave - read them by selecting the BUY NOW button above.  And, right now, you can enjoy our special rate of  $49.99 while it lasts! 



You’ll be sampling, not just any, but the Riverwalk’s finest, sure to leave you hankering to return.  Nothing “touristy” here.  The tour includes offerings from 2 different James Beard Award Nominated Chefs, who are considered by many the two best in ALL of San Antonio - no less the River Walk!  And, they usually present in person. A third restaurant has been recognized by our local major Newspaper’s food critic as the ”Best Riverwalk Dining Experience” - 2 years in a row!  To round out our “Tasting Locations” you will experience some specialized treats at a 4th spot which includes a taste sensation that Bill Clinton called a National Treasure.  But that’s not all, to top it off, each location will provide you with a “return treat” to say thanks which further adds to the value of  your tour. 

Last but not least, you will find all tasting locations are found only on the River Walk. You will not find another a second anywhere.  They are not part of chains, hotels, etc.  They are uniquely San Antonio.  As an added twist, our culture will often be tied in with the food they inspired, which you’ll be sampling via these locations.  So, you will be taking a San Antonio styled food tour!

So, be sure to book your tour at the very beginning of your visit so that you can take advantage of this unique return offer, and more importantly, give yourself the opportunity to go back and experience the “full treatment” at the tastiest places on the River Walk, and for the matter – San Antonio!  Don’t chance it elsewhere.


Naturally, you’ll be enjoying a 2nd benefit – a River Walk tour.  There’s nothing like a shady stroll along this renowned attraction, which no doubt, you were already hoping to explore.  And, 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 here; 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, the . . .

Tuesday thru Saturday.  We go Rain or Shine, so please check weather conditions.  If they are a concern for you, then please dress or equip yourself appropriately. However, this is rarely a problem in San Antonio.  Purchasing must be done, at the latest, by 8pm of the previous day via this website by clicking the BUY NOW button above, and thereby, you’ll can also check availability.  If you are attempting to purchase after this time or the same day as the tour you’re seeking,  it is unlikely there will be availability.  However, you can still try the buy now option as stated.  If that doesn’t work, you may email or call just in case there is a rare cancellation, etc.  Also, WE DO NOT RE-SCHEDULE TOURS ONCE PURCHASED.   This tour is not for people having walking difficulties and/or cannot climb stairs.  You must be the 13 year of age or older – Please read all conditions in the FAQ before purchasing.

It is best to schedule your food tour at the BEGINNING of your visit to San Antonio vs. the end and avoid making reservations at other restaurants before you’ve tasted these  – the best not only on the River Walk, but San Antonio.  And in this case, you can see if you agree by this unique opportunity to try before you buy. 


Our San Antonio food tour begins at 2:45pm and concludes about 6:15pm.    TOURS START PROMPTLY  |  NO REFUNDS | NO CANCELLATIONS | NO EXCEPTIONS 


See list of Riverwalk tasting locations above.  ALL are “local and legendary”.  They’re found only in San Antonio, and only on 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.  If possible, it is highly recommended you NOT eat lunch before 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 of them as well as King William or Private VIP tours, please visit:


We begin the tour just  OUTSIDE the front door entrance of the Visitor Center @ 317 Alamo Plaza, San Antonio, TX 78205.  Be sure you are at the right visitor center at this address.  Approach your guide IMMEDIATELY upon arrival; will be wearing a  purple shirt displaying the Fork in the River logo.  Again, please check in as soon as you arrive and not wait till the last minute to do so.  TOURS START ON TIME - NO EXCEPTIONS.


See BUY NOW above.  At least 2 guests are required to constitute a tour.  So, if you are unable to book a tour because that minimum has not been reached, and you are booking for one person, you will need to check until it is met.  Be sure to reserve now and as far in advance as possible to guarantee your place on this food tour of San Antonio’s Riverwalk, and be sure to do so as close to the BEGINNING of your visit as possible for maximum benefit and availability – this tour has a limited schedule and usually allows only 10 guests to make your experience even more enjoyable.  Not to mention, experiencing this as early as possible in your visit allows you the unique benefit of  previewing restuarants vs. taking a chance on where to dine later during your stay in San Antonio.
