My sisters and I like to find interesting ways to celebrate our birthdays by doing something together. We thought a walking food tour would give us a chance to reconnect with each other while trying out some of the great eateries of Santa Monica. It was perfect. We had lots of time to catch up with each other , enjoy an eclectic mix of the Santa Monica food scene, and have a wonderful conversation with our warm, intelligent and interesting tour guide Sandra. It was like she was a fast friend.As locals, we were surprised to learn so much about Santa Monica that we didn't know. It was also great that Sandra asked about our own experience growing up in the area. We got the sense that she was taking it in to add color to her already interesting tours. This would be a really fun adventure to share with your in- our out-of-town family and friends. While the food was tasty and representative of the cultural mix that is "LA," the history, backstory and general conversation made the tour for us.
