Love, love, loved this food tour! We did the Pasadena tour. Our guide Barbara was very knowledgeable. She was also very enthusiastic about the area and the food. Although the price is a little steep I felt like it was definitely worth it. We did receive good size portions and we definitely left full. Additionally, I am gluten intolerant and... More

Well organized and we learned many facts about the Farmers Market. We have lived in the LA area for many years and yet had never taken this fascinating tour. Well worth your time!!

I (mom) booked the tour for my family. Best outing our family has done together in a long time! My husband - being somewhat of a history buff was thrilled with our tour guide Barbara's knowledge of the area. Barbara was fabulous! Gave just the right amount of facts and fun all put into the best 2 1/2 hour tour.... More

My husband booked this tour for our family for Mother's Day. We had a blast! Barbara did an outstanding job sharing the history of Pasadena, and introducing us to story behind each of our stops. The food was great, the other stops like the soap, olive oil, candy, etc. was wonderful! I think, if I had to pick out a... More

The best part of tour is the tea house. What does that say about their food selection? Below average quality food selections, mini appetizer portions. Tour guide nice and Pasadena history interesting. Their restaurants selected were 3star at best on YELP. Could have saved a lot of money if just hopped restaurants using yelp.

While we purposely choose tasting samples which we believe will appeal to the broadest audience, it is understandable that our selections may not always be to a guest's liking.
