Super fun activity!

Attended: Old Pasadena Food Tasting Tour
The food tour was great and our tour guide (Barbara) was awesome! She was super friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of Old Pasadena. We really liked the interesting food stops (especially the Indian curry, the Mexican tortas and the Venezuelan sipping chocolate). It was nice that this tour company supports the more independent and family-owned restaurants. It was fun to discover unique food places that you might never notice as you drive through the area. We highly recommend this tour--it was really fun and different. The only thing we found that was a tad odd was the stop at the Soap Kitchen. This was a food tasting tour, not a shopping tour. I felt like we were expected to buy soaps. I would have like another food stop instead of the soap store. But overall, we had a GREAT time and will definitely recommend the tour to our family and friends!
