I took this tour with some friends of mine who live in Los Angeles. I learned a lot about the history and enjoyed six different restaurants along the way. Chris was an extremely informative guide and gave us great recommendations about what to see and what to do while I was visiting.

Jam packed with history of the area, appreciation for the physical city as you walk through it, and surprisingly fabulous nooks and crannies of great food, this tour made for one of the best afternoons I have had in a long, long time. And Annie, our leader, is one of the nicest human beings you will ever meet. I highly recommend this tour for both locals and visitors alike!

I found this on-line and suggested it to my husband. He went with my idea, and we had a good time meeting new people and learning about places we would have never found on our own. I enjoyed MAKE as well. I was one of the few that liked the raw cuisine. The gelato was over the top good. My husband's favorite! Annie was a wonderful hostess; she was knowledgeable, passionate about her business, and organized. If you have the time, give this a try.

My wife and I were in charge of entertaining my parents and their friends on a recent weekday and came across the food tour. Our tour guide Annie was great, and the tour is definately recommended. The food was unique, tasty, and pleasing. Everyone had a great time

We booked this tour as a part of our end of Q1 celebration for our employees. This event appealed to us for a few reasons: 1) we would get to go out and enjoy the lovely springtime weather, 2) we would get a little history and education about Santa Monica, 3) We would get lots of great FOOD! It turned out to be a lovely afternoon. Annie was fantastic and all of the restaurants we went to were phenomenal (some we wouldn't have chosen ourselves). This was the perfect event for those who want to do something a little different in Santa Monica. I would definitely recommend this to others.
