Food Tours in Palm Springs

Delightful Dish on a Palm Springs Food TourLooking for something fun to do that's not your typical night out, vacation or holiday? How about taking food tours in Palm Springs, exploring great food and creating memories you'll cherish for years to come?

Taking a food tour is rarely the same tour twice. Restaurants are constantly rotating their menus, so it's a fun surprise every time.

Palm Springs Palate offers food tours in any location of your choice in the Palm Springs area. We often visit downtown La Quinta and Palm Desert on El Paseo Drive.

The tour consists of visiting 3-4 restaurants in the area and tasting the delicious foods they create. We offer different types of tours, such as:

Hidden Gems - Explore food trucks, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, and "street food." Find new restaurants with exotic cuisines. Get ready to eat food that you have never heard about before!

Trendy - Channel your inner influencer while we visit Instagram-worthy spots!

Upscale - Treat yourself to fine dining. Bask in luxury as we visit the finest restaurants.

Cocktails - More interested in a drinking tour than a food tour? We've got you covered. Let loose, and get ready to drink delicious craft cocktails from the finest establishments.


Public And Private Food Tours Are Available

You can join in a food tour with the public and make new friends or take a private tour with friends and family. If you opt for a private tour, the minimum requirement is six people.

You can also purchase an optional drink ticket, but you'll need the proper I.D.

Food tours are family-friendly and 100% kid-friendly. The only requirement is that children must be 8+ and accompanied by an adult.

Dietary restrictions may or may not be accommodated. We recommend booking a private food tour if there are dietary accommodations.

Food Tours Frequently Asked Questions

Food tours aren't the typical events you attend when looking for something to do with friends and family, so of course, we get a lot of questions. Here are a couple of frequently asked questions about food tours and Palm Springs Palate's tour policies.

What exactly is a food tour?

Food tours are a way for locals and tourists to sample multiple restaurants and get the best of each place. They differ from food festivals and city walking tours. Food tours have sometimes been called a "food crawl" akin to a "pub crawl."

How much of the tour will be spent walking?

About 1/3 of the food tour will be spent either walking or standing. If you've booked a private tour and anyone in your group has trouble walking for long periods of time, we can make the tour more condensed for less walking.

Do I tip our tour guides?

No, tipping your tour guide is not necessary, though we promise you'll want to.

Do you offer a breakfast tour?

Palm Springs Palate's food tour is lunch and dinner, but there might just be a bit of a history tour thrown in, but we'll leave that as a surprise.

What's your cancellation policy for food tours?

If you have to cancel, contact us at least 72 hours before your tour, or you won't be refunded. If Palm Springs Palate cancels the tour, you'll be provided a full refund or credit.
