All I can say is WOW! We had the best time! Our guide, Brian, was the most interesting, knowledgeable, and fun guide I have encountered on any tour. We ate incredible food, learned history, and found out how to please the Sushi chefs. Thank you for a memorable time. Can't wait to try another tour.

Wow! We were blown away with the Santa Monica Food Tour yesterday morning and afternoon. Therese was our tour guide extraordinaire - she is the best. The restaurants and attractions selected for the food tour were so good. Therese shared so many fun and interesting facts about Santa Monica, as well as the local restaurants, buildings, famous local vendors and the subject of locally resources and organic food products.

As a result of Therese's professional flair, people skills and expert knowledge, our group of participants opened up and became a cohesive and fun group of people.

Within several hours after our tour was complete, our favorable word of mouth regarding the tour spread to more than a dozen people. We are already making plan for a repeat performance with Six Taste.

Your are doing lots of things right - especially Therese!

I have now done two six taste food tours. The first a little over a year in downtown. The food was so different (delicious cuisines from everywhere around the world). I felt like a tourist in my own town; there's so much history that I was unaware of. A couple weeks ago I took the Japantown tour. Oooohhh, so delicious! I wish I brought my tupperware because I was so full I couldn't finish everything - and that was sad. It had the best japanese curry I've ever had! The udon soup was probably my favorite. Brian (the famous actor we all insyantly recognized but tried to play it cool & act like we didn't) was our tour guide & I think I developed a lil crush on him. He's hilarious & knows his stuff! That boy is a walking Japantown dictionary. I loved both tours equally; they are both so different that it's hard to say I preferred one over the other. Thank you six taste for the great times (& bigger waist line!).
