Private Tour Prices
  • A private tour costs $99 per person (1 person minimum & 16 person maximum per guide), including all the food tastings (enough for lunch or dinner)
  • 20% gratuity for your guide and support staff in addition to the tour price
  • $15 charge in addition to the tour price for gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan participants
  • There is a $297 minimum charge for 1-3 participants

For groups larger than 16 people, we will split into 2 or 3 groups of 16 participants, each with their own tour guide. All the groups will have the same starting and ending locations and eat at the same delicious places but will take slightly different routes.

Additionally, if you’d like to make your outing extra festive, you may add an alcohol component to your food tour. You may either pay the restaurant directly with your credit card on the day of the tour, or we can put the drinks on our tab, and charge your credit card, after the tour. We will send you the receipts.

  • There is a 15% surcharge for us to put the drinks on our tab.

A $297 deposit will secure the date and time. Then, you may purchase the additional tickets up to 72 hours before your tour, when you have a better sense of your exact headcount. Be sure to secure the date and time soon, as our private tour calendar fills up quickly.
