Dine arounds

A Houston dine around brings together the best restaurants in the city in a more formal style than a standard food tour

Dine arounds can be motorcoach based, and take clients from restaurant to restaurant around town, in a format that is similar to the chef led food tours.

If you prefer for your group to stay in a walkable neighbiorhood, your guide can take you from restaurant to restaurant in one of our many popular neighborhoods, including Downtown, Midtown, Montrose, Rice Village, the Heights (either White Oak or 19th street), Chinatown, or the Galleria, to name a few.
