Texas' Original Food Tours on Galveston Island providing local culinary tastings


Taste the Strand is Galveston Island’s original premier food tour.

We support locally owned restaurants and businesses that serve you only the freshest ingredients that are prepared daily.

While on one of our Galveston food tours, your host will lead you on an experience through the wonderfully diverse restaurants located in the Historic Downtown Strand District.

We offer two experiences: The original caters to a family friendly tasting while the other (TAPAS) focuses on adult drink pairings for those over 21 years.

You’ll stop at many diverse eating destinations including some of Galveston’s unique shops, sightseeing spots and other tourist destinations that can give you ideas for further exploration during your visit.

Guests can sit back and relax without having to worry about crowds, reservation juggling, searching the internet, or sifting through restaurant reviews. Each two-hour+ culinary tour is available for both group and private bookings.

Taste of the Strand tour package is perfect for families & corporate group outings. The menu changes seasonally, so you can expect to try diverse local restaurants, wine bars and historic candy confections.

Tapas on the Strand food n’ drink tours is the pairing of food and alcohol designed for the adult beverage connoisseurs in mind who are also aspiring or dedicated foodies. This tour has something for any palate whether experienced or untrained on diverse flavors. We give an all-inclusive experience with aficionados in mind, pairing food and alcohol at local restaurants and bars.

Be sure to come hungry, you won’t be disappointed. Book your food tour today! 

Since our adult beverage pairing tour will be compacting multiple bars and drinks, we recommend that all participants plan ahead with an Uber or Lyft service to ensure everyone has a safe and great experience during their vacation on Island time with us.
