Downtown Las Vegas Food Tour

Downtown Las Vegas Food Tour

Meet your guide and small group in the heart of downtown Las Vegas to begin your exploration of this historic part of the city and its eclectic food offerings. Stroll around this authentic section of Vegas that's a world away from the slick Las Vegas Strip as your guide explains how Fremont Street originated and what drove early settlers to come here during the Great Depression. Get the lowdown on Vegas' connection to the Mob and how it became a wedding mecca.

Stop at neighborhood restaurants, ethnic eateries and offbeat food stores, and chat with the owners about their offerings. Your tour may include visits to the super-fun Beef Jerky Store; Simply Pure, a vegan and raw food cafe; and ChillSpot by SASASWEETS, a frozen dessert shop. Sample a diverse selection of local specialties that make for a fulfilling lunch.

Throughout your tour, your passionate guide points out architectural landmarks, vintage stores and little-known attractions that tie into the rich and colorful history of Vegas. Expect to walk about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) during your 2.5-hour tour. By the time your downtown Las Vegas tour concludes on north Las Vegas Boulevard, you'll have tasted some local food favorites and learned there's a lot more to Vegas than gambling and glitz.


Tasting locations may include (subject to change):
  • Rachel's Kitchen Downtown at the Ogden
  • ChillSpot by SASASWEETS
  • Uncle Joe's Pizza
  • Cous Cous Mediterranean Cafe
  • The Beef Jerky Store
  • Simply Pure

We really enjoyed seeing so many historical place and the tastings were a good amount. We wished we hadn't eaten breakfast before the tour. Everything was yummy!

The tour was great! Learned things I never knew about Las Vegas and the food was great. I had never heard of any of the restaurants since they are not part of the Fremont Street Experience and they were all great - even the Juice Bar :

This was the first food tour I have experienced. It will set the bar high for others. I thoroughly enjoyed our guide. She was very informative. She shared a good deal of history regarding downtown as well as exposing us to new places that we would have otherwise not known about. All of the food tastings were great and well planned. This was my favorite part of our Vegas trip!

Had a great time and Vicky was knowledgeable and personable! Most of the stops had good food but one stop where we had the gumbo was so salty I couldn't eat it. Love the Container Park stop... Wanted to go back there on my own.

This is a great tour. Our tour guide was great! As a LV lifetime resident, she was very knowledgable about the old Fremont area of Las Vegas. If you're visiting Las Vegas, break away from the all to busy strip and take this tour to get a better feel/appreciation for Old Las Vegas.
