About Us

A premier culinary experience, Vegas Valley Food Tours offers a variety of sweet and savory strolls through some of Las Vegas’ finest restaurants. Whether a “foodie” or a gastronomic novice, guests can enjoy a guided tour with tastings from celebrity chef-driven restaurants while learning fun “Sin City” facts and exploring some of the wonders the city has to offer. Vegas Valley Food Tours offers a variety of tours including the popular Downtown Las Vegas Tour and Las Vegas Foodie Walk. Corporate tours, private parties and custom tours are also available upon request. We think of ourselves as storytellers, showcasing each neighborhood through the people, places, and great food (and drinks). Downtown is where we started as a community and very few people know much about the history of Las Vegas. Our goal is to bridge the gap through culinary experiences.

Our History


As the founding president of Vegas Valley Food Tours, Vickie Wilson showed ingenuity in grouping businesses together to produce a single tour product in the downtown Las Vegas community at a time when many lost hope for the fledgling community. Vickie saw a vision where others saw destitution. vickie opened Vegas Valley Food Tours December of 2013, the first tour company to focus exclusively on downtown Las Vegas community, culture, and culinary offerings. Under her leadership, the company became the top ranked activity on Yelp, TripAdvisor, and Google. Making the decision to sell the company in February 2018 was not easy but Vickie wished to return to her roots in community service as the Supervisor of Volunteer Recruitment for American Red Cross Utah/Nevada Region.

Vickie Sold Vegas Valley to Jodi Philippson, with Food Tours of America, in February, 2018. Jodi is an experienced food tour owner with tours here in Vegas on the strip as well as in Texas where they are the #1 Food & Drink Activity for TripAdvisor in Dallas

About Jodi Philippson

In 2011, a local Dallasite named Jodi had a vision (and a rumble in her stomach): what kind of business would allow her to combine her love of food, people, and creativity? After thinking long and hard about it (and having a snack), she created Food Tours of America Dallas. Now the premiere food tour company of Dallas, ranked #1 Food and Drink in Dallas on TripAdvisor.
