Cash and/or walk-up reservations are not accepted on the day of the tour.

Yes, all tours offer alternative tasting options for vegetarians. Please make sure to advise us in advance during the ticket booking process so we can make arrangements prior to the start of the tour.  We cannot make substitutions once the tour is under way.  Our food tours are appropriate for vegetarians, but perhaps a bit difficult for vegans & gluten free. You can always call and ask us!  Call us at 775-501-9293 or email us at info@renofoodwalks.com.  We are happy to help.

Our culinary walking tours are designed so that at each stop we taste more food than just a tiny bite but less than a full meal.  Our intention is that with our carefully crafted schedule of food and drink tastings, along with coordinated stops for architectural, cultural, and historical insight, most participants are comfortably full after our tours.  We like to eat and know you do too… that’s why you picked Reno Food Tours! We make sure by the time you leave, you will have eaten the equivalent of a full meal.

Of course! We welcome cameras and filming throughout the tour.

Yes-all guests must purchase a ticket whether they plan to partake in the food tastings or not.  Non-paying individuals will not be able to join the tour for any reason(s).  The ticket fees help cover the costs of all the food samplings and also to pay for your tour guide(s) wages, whom are offering valuable commentary on historical, architectural, cultural and restaurant information during our tours.

You don’t have to be a foodie to enjoy our tours, you just have to enjoy eating! Our food walks highlight the best the city has to offer, from quick counter eateries to high end haute cuisine.

We can provide substitutions for vegetarians and those who do not drink alcohol, but we cannot make substitutions for any other food allergies (such as gluten-free or dairy-free).

Substitutions must be requested in advance with your ticket purchase.  All tastings have been prepared in advance at each location, based on the information your provided to us at the time of ticket purchase.  Last minute dietary changes on tour will not be accommodated.  This is a carefully choreographed food ballet!

We are sorry for the inconvenience.  Our food tours have been designed to highlight the best and most distinctive foods from each establishment.

If you have serious food allergies please contact us or call us at 775-453-6635 before purchasing tickets for any of our food tours or events.

Yes! We operate in the rain, snow or shine.  The food tastes great regardless of the weather.  Reno’s weather is normally pretty good year round, although we recommend always checking the forecast beforehand.  On very rare occasions, we will contact you if the tour needs to be cancelled due to severe weather forecasts.
