 Our family voted the Old Town Taco Tour [...]   our best activity during our 5 day stay.

Star´s knowledge of the local history, culture, people, and places  was outstanding.

The tour was very personable. We felt like VIP´s. Thanks Star.

WE DON´T SELL JUST 'TOURS'

WE CREATE UNIQUE EXPERIENCES

We do not want to sell  just 'tours',  because we do not think or operate like a 'big box tour company'.

We are curios travelers, foodies and photographers with rich and diverse backgrounds which allows us to design amazing outings.

Our expertise and knowledge of our culture, food and  the neighborhoods  allows us to tweak, bend and reinvent each outing on a split second according to each group.

When you come with us, you can rest assured that you are in the hands of PASSIONATE LOCAL TOUR LEADERS.

When we design an experience for you..

  • What comes first is how we can share with you the gift that has been passed down from generation to generation in  our families, the gift of hospitality and generosity towards visitors.
  • Second, We want a good mix of laughs, great food, fun history facts, and beautiful places for  us to take your photos.
  • Third, how we can make a positive impact on our community through our tours or through the revenue from them.
  • Forth, revenue, hey after all this is how not only we enjoy life, and how we provide to our families, but also this is how we are able to sponsor or donate to local charities. 😀
Food and Photo Tour has been awarded the 2019 Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor for its outstanding reviews by travelers
