Felt like a mini-vacation! Today, July 15th, 2012 was our first food tour. We are locals to the Pasadena area and were surprised to find that we discovered a few new restaurants and some local history we were not familiar with. My husband and I enjoyed the tour led by an enthusiastic, entertaining guide and enjoyed meeting the other friendly... More

I don't bother rating unless the experience is exceptional. I have done many food tours in the Los Angeles area and elsewhere, and this is one of the best. There is a good variety of tastes and styles (some very good and none bad), there is enough but not too much (except for the unusually large portion of excellent gelato),... More

We've done a number of food tours in a number of cities and this just wasn't our favorite; not bad just not as good as others. We did the Pasadena tour. For starters, the group was rather large and that made it more difficult to be lead and more challenging for the guide to give us tips along the way.... More

I went on this tour Sunday, April 15, 2012. I loved it! There were 6 in the group and the guide was able to connect with each person individually. The restaurants were excellent choices as well. Food and variety of food were great. It was less walking than I expected; probably less than a mile all added up. Historical information... More

Went to 6 different places. It was a good mix of restaurants, tea shop, and bakeries. my favorite was the lesson in tea that came with the tasting. So much to learn! Sandra was a really great guide!

Los Angeles Area is a Foody kind of town, so venturing out to Old Town Pasadena for a food tour sounded like a total no brainer. I was a little hesitant to attend because I thought, "What other food establishments in Old Town are you going to show me that I don't already know about?" Not expecting something totally different... More

As an LA native, I expected to learn not only about tidbits of Pasadena, but to be able to ask questions about the food scene in Pasadena and get a straight answer. Our tour guide only knew the little tidbits that she was probably taught to talk about and didn't know anything specific about the food scene in Pasadena. She... More

What a great way to learn about cuisine, socialize, and make friends! Choices of food establishments are unique and truly awesome. Bring a date, a family member, a friend - you're guaranteed to have fun! Organizers are thoughtful and accomodating, very welcoming environment for everyone. Enjoy great food!!!

To make your trip more enjoyable, definitely wear comfortable shoes and wear sunglasses. My mom, aunts, and I brought a camera so we could take pictures of all the delicious food we were tasting. Although it was warm out in Old Town Pasadena, our very wonderful and patient guide Chang, showed us some local history as we strolled through the... More
