Not as good as the Farmer's Market tour.

Attended: Old Pasadena Food Tasting Tour
Barbara was great...informative and friendly. I originally purchased tickets for the East LA tour after enjoying the tour of the Farmer's Market. There were enough people that signed up, so we were forced to either accept a refund or try the Pasadena tour. Since the tickets were purchased as a birthday gift, I decided to try the Pasadena tour instead of taking a refund. The food was ok. Nothing spectacular. I felt that the food at the Farmer's market was better and more plentiful. For anyone interested in doing a melting pot tour, I'd recommend the FM over Pasadena.

Attended: The Farmers Market Food & History Tour
Andrew was a great guide and made what I thought would be a boring tour of the Farmer's Market to something informative.

I don't really have any other suggestions except that I wished the New York Pizza was also on the tasting menu

Excellent guide - friendly and knowledgeable. Pace of tour most suitable to absorb atmosphere, all places visited had something to offer particularly in terms of the food being sampled. I had a great time.
