About
Embark on this unique 3.5 hour walking food tour of Santa Fe's Railyard Arts District. You'll get a chance to learn about the arrival of the railroad in Santa Fe in 1880 and the rapid change this brought to the surrounding area. The Railyard Arts District is one of Santa Fe's most vibrant and up and coming neighborhoods that's home to some of the best restaurants in the city. Stop at four locations throughout this tour to eat, drink and hear about the culture of Santa Fe. 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.

Fantastic Experience
Oct 2019
Our group of 4 ladies thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Jay did an outstanding job of making sure we were happy with the experience. His knowledge of the railway and Santa Fe cuisine was excellent. The places we visited were meaningful and the restaurants/bars were generous with their portions. It happened to rain that day but Jay had ponchos for everyone who wanted one. Highly recommend this tour!

Lauren is Santa Fe’s Most Delicious Treat
Sep 2019 • Couples
Visiting for the first time from New York and NJ, my husband and I and another couple thought a Food Tour around Santa Fe would be a sweet & spicy intro to this beautiful city.

From the moment our fearless leader of Wander Tours seated us at Sage Bake House, Lauren truly had us at hello. The tartines were delicious but Lauren’s hilarious sense of humor, endearing passion for food and history and her delicious blend of sweetness & spiciness was above and beyond our wildest expectations. Meeting restaurant owners, sampling incredible food and drink and mingling with her and other tour guests proved an A+ experience.

Ask for Lauren as your guide... truly, incredibly THE BEST✅

Great Food, Great Value and Great Time.

Lauren did a great job discussing food and history in the Santa Fe art district. For the out of town visiter, this is a great way to get in introduction to the charm, art and cusisne of the Land of Enchantment. Another plus - people who do this sort of thing are pleasant and enjoyable to be with.

Our fabulous tour guide shared her passion for cooking on this "foodie" walk.
Her relationship with the owners of "the Shed", and la Choza, as well as Resturant Martin, truly made this a great tour of the Railyard district.
Ideally, a lower price and more drinkable pairings would make this tour even better.
