A tour with Lili is sure to entertain and enlighten you with speed-talking on the history of Avalon/Catalina Island and how it evolved. The food would be almost secondary if it weren't so tasty. My big takeaway was the caramel and white chocolate coated apple...More

We thought the amount of food was perfect. You get small portions at every place and then walk a bit between them to work it off. You don't drink too much so that was good for me as we were already drinking on the ship....More

I have been coming to Catalina island for years, but now I have a much better understanding of the history, and especially some very noteworthy restaurants. Highly recommended, Lili was an awesome guide, but you have to listen carefully she talks fast!

Great tour to spend the afternoon learning about Catalina Island culture. Tasty bites and drinks are served! The Avalon Tasting & Cultural Walking Tour is a must for Island visitors.
