Attended: Old Pasadena Food Tasting Tour
Walking around the side streets of Old Pasadena, learning the history and tasting foods from small restaurants was a great way to spend a Sunday. Learned about delicious places I had never noticed before.

I have been on a few of these type of walking tours and this one was just fantastic. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and infectiously enthusiastic, which only added to the event. As we walked around, we got to taste a little bit of a wide range of foods and all of it was very tasty. A few people in our group had some dietary restrictions which was easily accommodated. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone!

Our entire group of 6 enjoyed this tour! The tour guide is very friendly and informative. We were skeptical if we would be starving by the end of the tour, and we were all totally stuffed from the awesome variety and quantity of food we sampled. It is well worth the time and money!!

I loved The Farmers Market Tour. Our tour guide Andrew was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, took us to all of the best places, and seemed to know everyone at the Market. Everything we got to sample was delicious. If you've never been to Farmers Market, its size can be a bit daunting, and it can be hard to know where to go. This tour allows you to try all kinds of different things, and by the end you will know what you like and where to spend more time. Highly recommended!
