I was amazed by the Melting Pot Food Tour to the Farmers Market in Los Angeles! Even though I live in that area and go constantly to the farmers Market, I really didn't know a lot about the history of that place and all the amazing food they have there. Awesome experience and the tour host, Lisa Scalia was super... More

The tour was amazing. Diane was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable - about the food (since she's a chef herself) and about the farmer's market history & people (since she grew up going to the market and continues to frequent it very regularly). The food was delicious, and it was just a wonderful experience.

This was such a great tour. I have visited and worked in Pasadena but have never experienced these local hot spots. Can't wait to do another Los Angeles tour with Melting Pot Tours. You guys are the best!

The East LA Latin Tour was exceptional, the food was varied (not just Mexican tacos!) and of high quality, and the host Andrew was knowledgable and personable in introducing our group to this interesting historic neighbourhood of LA. Melting Pot's tours are not just about food, but are a fantastic way to get to know LA

Thank you Andrew for a very entertaining and informative tour. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the food and the historical farmers market. Great way to learn some history and try new food. We also enjoyed meeting the other people on the tour. Definitely recommend for individual, couple or family!

My husband and I did the farmers market tour in LA. We have done several food tours and this one was hands down the best. There was a great variety in foods, lots of interesting information from the professional yet friendly guide, and plenty of food to leave satisfied. Next time we are in LA we will absolutely do another... More

I was lucky enough to get a spot on a Melting Pot VIP Tour of La Espanola Meats, a Spanish-style meat factory in Harbor City. After studying abroad in Spain, I had a real hankering for some chorizo, paella, jamon serrano, and boy was I not at all disappointed. First we toured the entire facility with Alex, who runs La...

My husband and I were looking for something to do to avoid rush hour traffic in LA and found this awesome tour based on other reviews. I was glad that they were able to accommodate a private tour last minute. It lived up to the reviews and was a great experience of the many different foods in LA. Diane was... More
