This tour was all you could ask of a food tour.....great food #1, interesting walk thru the melting pot of LA, and a wonderful host. Our guide Pip was great, always upbeat and charming. A variety of ethnic foods and some new food experiences await the culinary traveler. Would highly recommend.

Even though it happened to be one of the hottest days on record, I really enjoyed this tour! I learned a lot about my home town (a friend was visiting and we thought it would be a fun way to see some non-touristy sights). My only suggestions would be to lessen the time in the garden in order to be... More

Our group consisted of two visitors from UK and two who live here. Met up with beautiful Sasha right on time and the magic began! Not only was she thoroughly knowledgeable about the area and history, her genuine enthusiasm and sheer pleasure leading this tour was contagious! Everyone in our group had the absolute best time ever! We ate in... More

I had a great time on this tour. Matt, my guide, was very knowledgable about Hollywood and the history of LA in general. Went to a lot of great bars that I probably would've walked past had Matt not pointed them out! Highly recommended.

This is one of the best tours I've ever made, if not the best. The ideas behind the tour: small group, less known neighborhoods, mass transportation, and a local guide really appealed to me. I loved to taste all those ethnic foods, see how they were made, sneak into all those bakeries and markets. It was really interesting to listen... More

We are LA locals and absolutely LOVED this tour! After 15 years here we were introduced to a whole new side of LA and it's Thai, Armenian and Korean neighborhoods. Our guide, Brooke, was a wealth of knowledge on culture, food, history and architecture and kept the tour relaxed and fun the whole way. We would definitely recommend this tour... More

We had the pleasure of hanging out with Brooke and about 9 other people for the Ethnic Neighborhoods Food Tour in late August. The day was warm, but that didn't slow us down! Brooke had interesting information about the locations we visited and the food was great! We honestly didn't expect such large amounts of food! Hard to pick a... More

Pip was a great tour guide and we enjoyed the walking tour through East Hollywood and Koreatown. And the food was fantastic. More than we could eat. We will definately take another Urban Adventure tour somewhere in the world in the future, and we would definately seek out the great restaurants Pip introduced us to.

Today my husband and I went on the Urban Adventure Food tour with Pip and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Pip shared a lot of information about Korean, Armenia and Thai Towns. We went into some buildings we probably would have never entered that were beautiful inside. We have lived in the Los Angeles area for years and it was such... More
