Downtown Santa Barbara Taco Tour

About the Taco Tour

We love tacos and downtown SB has some great tacos, so we created our very own downtown Santa Barbara taco trail! The taco tour includes THREE different types of margs (or beer), a handful of different tacos (like 4) and each taco tasting is different. You will also get a taquito or two and of course chips & salsa!

Tastings and location vary based on availability. Each tour generally visits 5-6 tasting locations. Please note if you are under 21, there is one tasting location where you may not be able to enter.

Exact meeting location will be sent to you via email once you book. If you do not see your confirmation email within a few minutes, please check your Spam folder.

Feel free to bring a water bottle.

Do I have to walk the entire time?

Yes, unless you have a stroller or motorized scooter (please alert us ahead of time). If you have health issues that prevent you from walking or if you tend to walk at a slower place, we recommend contacting us about a private tour.


If you are 21+ you have the option to enjoy 3 alcoholic beverages. If you are under 21 – we have some tasty options.

Due to California almost always being in a drought, water is served on request.

What tasting locations will the tour stop at?

Tastings and tasting locations vary depending on the day. We usually visit 5-6 tasting locations on the tour. All of our tasting partners can be found here.

Can I bring my pet to the tour?

Please refrain from bringing pet guests. We love animals, but we are no longer able to guarantee outdoor seating and indoor restaurants do not allow animals. If you know you will be traveling with a furry friend, please consider a private tour option.

I have more questions. How do I contact you?

Feel free to email us at with any other questions.
