Cathy was our guide and did a great job of herding a large group of 15 around Laguna. Some interesting bits of history about some places we'd never had visited. You don't know in advance what places you'll visit but it was a mix of new and familiar stops at historic sites, restaurants, and shops. The tour takes about four... More

We went on the Flavors of Laguna Beach history & food tour and we loved it. Cathy our food and tour guide for the day was wonderful and had a great personality!! She knew all of the history, secrets, restaurants and quaint hideaways in Laguna Beach! I have been on a few history/food tours in Orange County and by far... More

LJ was our guide and she was very informative and nice. We liked all the stops except 2 - Tommy Bahama and the pizza shop. Neither were good and should be replaced with other worthy local restaurants. However all the other stops were fun and served great food. Our group really enjoyed the brewery, the Mexican restaurant, Zinc, the stand... More

We really enjoyed our tour of Laguna with the Flavors of Laguna tour. There were 12 in our group (a bit large). We started at a small Mexican restaurant, La Sirena Grill (a must try on its own) where we had chips, salsa, guac and a tacquito. We saw quite a variety of sites in-between each stop and the tour...

This was a great tour! Our Guide Jennie was a wonderful host and guide. The history shared and historical sights included things we may have missed. Every establishment that we visited served wonderful food items. There was wine at one stop at The Lumber Yard. We also stopped at a micro brewery. It was an additional charge of $3/pp to... More

A great morning spent wandering the streets of downtown Laguna. We went to several different dining venues, all of which are local and independent. Food was delicious, and the historical charms of Laguna Beach were relayed to us. The tour is a small group of 12-14 and we walked about a mile stopping along at many interesting sites and secret...

Totally enjoyed this 3 1/2 hour tour. Lots of history and culture that I was not aware of. The food tastings were much more than just a taste. The food was delicious. The only disappointment was the bar we went to. Didn't really add any value to the tour. I would highly recommend this tour to tourists or locals. Parking... More

Our tour was a Christmas gift and honestly I never would have thought of doing a tour like this when I live so close. That's the beauty - we really had no idea how much history there was to appreciate in a 7 square block area. Then there were the wonderful tastes at the restaurants - fantastic. The only part...

This is a fantastic way for visitors to see the MANY restaurants of Laguna Beach, as well as to experience its history. Whether you are just visiting Laguna Beach or a local you will find lots to like on this tour. From the statue of "The Greeter" to the tiny cathedral we learned a lot of history about Laguna Beach.... More
