This historic waterfront architectural walking and wine tasting tour will take you back to a time of elegance when great visionaries created the magical island of Catalina. It features the various icons, such as the buildings, people, and events...more
My daughter and I did the Icons of AValon tour during spring break. Our tour guide, Lili, was fabulous. She knew so much history and was a pleasure to be around. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning about the history...More
Lili our tour guide made a lasting impression on me and my wife, not knowing what to expect we thought it would be nice to know some facts on the history of this special place, she really took an interest in us both and now...More
Our guide ( Lily) was well prepared and interesting and took enough time to get into detail, there were four of us and we had a good time and she answered many questions not only about the history but also about living in Avalon.
When we read the description of this tour, it sounded like a walking wine tour which we have had in many other cities. We ended up with a disorganized guide and a tour that ended much sooner than it was billed. The only wine we...More

This walking tour covering Avalon's history and architecture is a charming and helpful way to begin one's Catalina sojourn. Pat, the guide for my tour, was expert and friendly. The wine tasting at the end at a harbor cafe is the perfect touch.
We read the great reviews and decided to do the tour when we arrived on to the island. We called the number listed and booked tickets. There was only us and Pat for our tour. She did a excellent job. Every question we had she...More
