Half-Day Santa Fe Food and History Walking Tour

Select Option


This classic Santa Fe food and drink adventure is focused on Santa Fe's downtown Plaza neighborhood. You will explore Santa Fe by foot while sampling the best in local food and beverage. You will have a chance to sample classic New Mexican flavors, as well as get a taste of what’s new and exciting in Santa Fe’s food scene. Along the way, you’ll learn about the city’s long and fascinating history, with an emphasis on how Native, Hispanic, and Anglo cultures shaped – and were shaped by – the region’s unique (and delicious!) food culture.

This tour is designed with adventurous eaters in mind. Some food in New Mexico can be spicy, and while we can accommodate food allergies we are unable to provide "non-spicy" alternatives.

This tour includes a variety of restaurants, and is NOT focused exclusively on New Mexican food. We bring you the best of Santa Fe, which includes a diverse array of cuisines.

We chose the Wander New Mexico half day Santa Fe food and history tour "Sip & Savor". It was located downtown by the plaza. It was an excellent choice. Our guide, Lauren, was amazing. She was funny, entertaining, and filled with info! She not only provided food history but also Santa Fe history. She allowed our group to mingle which was really fun because we met some wonderful people! The portions were generous and she offered alternatives in case you have any food aversions. I have gone on numerous food tours and this was really an amazing one. I would highly recommend this tour!!

Lauren was awesome! Never had a chef give me a food tour and it was amazing! She was a wealth of knowledge and fun—hard combo to find. The food was great, then drinks were yummy. Lots of fun with other foodies we met on the tour. Do it, you won’t regret it!!

Our guide Lauren led a lively, informative & fun tour to 4 delicious culinary sites downtown: Santa Fe/international/chef/wine: 1) El Callejon Taqueria - Tasty tacos & margaritas. A cozy, casual pub! 2) Santarepa, a woman owned biz. Sampler of 3 scrumptious Venezuelan specialties & agua fresca. So good we got a bag to go for later. 3) Sassella. We indulged in a ravioli with a mushroom, cheese, cream sauce & a refreshing Aperol Spritz cocktail. Elegant, Italian fine dining. 4) Gruet - We sampled 3 sparkling wines at the tasting room w/ a passion fruit chocolate truffle. They gave a nice discount on wine shipped home. Meeting and hearing directly from owner Isabella & Chef Cristian made this tour especially memorable. These talented immigrants are adding to Santa Fe's thriving food scene. Thank you Lauren! You are a free spirit!
