COVID-19 Safety and Sanitation Protocols


EAT Saint Louis Food Tour’s


Outside When Possible

While we have modified our tours to be outside as much as we can, it varies per tour.  Please note that some food tastings still take place indoors.

Opt to make it a Private Tour

If you are the first to an available date on our calendar, you will see an option to book your tour as a “PRIVATE TOUR”.  You may select to choose to make your tour private to only your group by selecting “1” next to PRIVATE TOUR and then select the number of people in your group from the dropdown, when asked.  Yes, the price per person reduces the more people in your group, up to a maximum group size of 10 participants… so grab your friends!
