This was a great food tasting tour! Our guide, Barbara, was awesome! She was both knowledgeable and friendly. Perfectly fitted for this line of work. It was quite interesting to learn about the history of the district and to see it’s architecture beautifully restored. The savory and sweet food tastings were delicious! I would highly recommend this activity to anyone. Going back again this coming weekend!

Old Pasadena Food Tasting "Mother's Day" Tour
Sat, May 7  10:30 AM Male 50-59 Local Family Without Children
Attended: Old Pasadena Food Tasting Tour
We had a great tour guide, Barbara, who walked us through old Pasadena. She was able to give us the history of Pasadena and introduced us to several new restaurants, a tea and wine store, and a soap, ice cream, and chocolate shop. We bought some soaps and wines using the Melting Pot Tours discount. We ate enough on the tour to skip dinner that day. Can't wait to take another tour.

Highlight of the day was discovering that we had some young movie stars on the tour.
