Andrew was a delightful host for our food & history tour of the LA Farmer's Market. He provided interesting background information as well as a personal perspective on the multi-generational owners of the small shops. He was punctual and efficient in getting our food samples...such a delicious variety! It was a lovely morning filled with fun & facts!

Interesting food and people. Nick, the guide, really made the tour. He obviously knows and loves the area, even recommending a shady street for walking.

This tour was very well done and we had such a good time learning about some of the history of Old Pasadena and also eat some amazing food! We ended up going back to our favorite places the next day to spend more time.

cons: You only get 15 minutes per place (so short!) and our tour was on a Sunday and we were not told that most of the places we visited would be closed the following day on Mondays! So most of the places we returned to were closed :(
