Chris was Awesome! Friendly, warm and inviting. Made you feel like you've known him for years. He was very knowledgeable and all the food was phenomenal!
Enjoyable Experience
, Jun 2021
Not only was the food delectable ranging from an almond croissant, beef brisket, grilled cheese, pizza, tacos, and a fabulous donut, but equally as memorable was Chris’s portrayal of LA history. We give this tour a 👍.
Not worth what you pay
, Jun 2021
The tour around the city was nice. Initially, my group expected better food choice and a variety of restaurants. During the tour, we visited a total of 3-4 locations over the course of 2 1/2 hours.

Thank you for your candid review. We're sorry you didn't enjoy our food tour of Downtown LA. We apologize for the delay at Grand Central Market. The market was extremely busy and our food partners were overwhelmed with customers. We have found a solution to this problem, and the food will be coming out quickly on all future tours. We make 6 different delicious food stops on our Downtown LA Food Tour. Our past customers reviews all mention their bellies were full by the end of the food tour. Again, we apologize for the wait at Grand Central Market and the tour not being as fluid as it usually is. We appreciate your feedback as it helps us make the necessary tweaks to improve our guest's food tour experience.
Not worth it

Wasn’t worth it. Started off good with guide explaining history of LA, but then went to central market for 3 of the tastings but were left at table forever. Food was ok.
Not worth the money
, May 2021
Ok tour. Food good but not ready so alot of waiting around. Tour guide was slightly disengaged. Walked 20 feet ahead of everyone.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. My wife and I decided to do this tour to celebrate our 3 year anniversary, and we had so much fun! If you love history and great food we would definitely recommend.
Downtown LA Disappointment
, Mar 2020
We were supposed to get an email after the tour with a list and addresses of all our food stops as well as some of the notable non-food stops. Our guide was quite knowledgeable about Los Angeles's history and readily shared his knowledge with us. He said very little about the food and in one instance did not even bother to tell us what we were eating. The food we ate was good and varied, but we have taken a lot of walking food tours in many cities and it is nice to learn a bit about the food and food industry in that town.
