My husband and I went on the Ojai Food Tour and our expectations were exceeded! Our host, Allison, was so nice and enjoyable to be with. She led us to various locations where we had the opportunity to meet chefs, restaurant owners and employees who gave us back stories and history of the people, food and beverages that we encountered. It was such a delight and the food was delicious. I tried many things I would not normally eat and was so happy I did so. A perfect date, tour for out-of-town guests or girls day out. I'm ready to try the Ventura Tour now!

We had a great tour with Allison. We enjoyed each of the stops and we certainly full by the end of the tour. We went back to two of the stops to buy some items we enjoyed on the tour.

I had such a blast with amazing food and company! I have a food clergy that I didn't think about until a couple days before and it was still a perfect experience. Learned a lot about my home town as well, which was a plus.

My husband and I found the tour to be particularly special as the guide (Allison) was very warm, informative, and thoughtful. The variety of restaurants/stores that we visited was delightful and everyone at each place was so friendly and informative.

We will recommend the tour to our friends and will come back for another tour too!

Allison, our tour guide, did such an excellent job. She is very personable and knowledgeable. I've lived in Ventura nearly all of my life and was taken to places I had not been to as well as learned interesting historical facts of Ventura that I never knew. I took a friend on this tour and we had a great time. I highly recommend this.
