River Market Dinner Tour
Join us for a culinary tour around the River Market neighborhood that will take you around the world. We'll visit 5-6 locally owned establishments and taste local favorites, hear the stories surrounding the food as well as tidbits of history. The tastings will include enough food to be equal to dinner. Come hungry. Leave satisfied.
Feel the beat of the oldest and most charming streets in the city. Taste off-the-radar eats, hear tales of the Wild West, gambling halls and shady characters that pepper Kansas City History as you stroll and eat your way through the historical heart of the River Market neighborhood and the site of the founding of Kansas City.
This tour offers more food stops than the Original River Market Food tour and is also offered in the evening. $55

All food tastings, tips and taxes at restaurants are included. The food served is more than enough for most people's dinner. It's unlikely you'll want to eat after the tour. Water is available at most of the establishments.
