Attended: Old Pasadena Food Tasting Tour
This was a delightful blend of Pasadena history, architecture, and, of course, some wonderful eateries. We've been on several food tours in various cities and this one is right up there with the best of them.

Attended: The Farmers Market Food & History Tour
We brought some friends to the Farmer's Market for the Melting Pot Food Tour. Andrew was our tour guide, and he did a great job! He had a great sense of humor, and was really informative. We had taken this tour twice before, and we think it is a great place to take out of town guests. I highly recommend this tour! You get to sample delicious food, and learn about the iconic Farmer's Market!!

Attended: East LA Latin Flavors Food & Culture Tour
This was our 3rd tour with Melting Pot Food Tours and this tour was just a good as Pasadena and Farmer's Market! Very knowledgeable tour leader and nice group of people along with us. Although we don't live that far from the tour area, we knew nothing about it and were really fascinated by the history. Now we have some new restaurants to go back to and places for terrific Latin-flavored foods! We already stopped back at the bakery on our way home!

Delightful Experience - tasting at Farmer's Mkt
Sat, Jun 20  9:30 AM Male 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
Attended: The Farmers Market Food & History Tour
My wife and I had a great time walking through, tasting and learning history of the Farmer's market. Our, guide (the owner of Melting Pot Tours) was wonderful and knowledgeable. The samples left us full and satisfied - Donuts at the beginning, Ice cream at the end, savories in between... It was wonderful touring such a delightful, funky historical piece of L.A. We went back on Thursday evening for dinner and to listen to live music, great time to go in summer - not crowded in the early evening - no tourists

Attended: The Farmers Market Food & History Tour
The Farmers Market History & Food Tour was very interesting, informative and especially, DELICIOUS!! Andrew, our guide, was wonderful!! It was good that the group was small (about 10). The food choices were varied although I would like to have had a taste of Italy, too. I would definitely recommend this tour to my family and friends. Thank you.
