Great food tour! The portions given were huge and we were not rushed at each location. It was all delicious too. The guide, Scarlette, was amazing, and very knowledgeable about the area. We had a really great time!

As a traveling partner of this display name, I had a lot of issues with the extremely crowded market areas we were taken to. I would have preferred much smaller venues and far greater attention and respect for health and safety, particularly as I explained my miserable previous experience with Covid. The tour guide was knowledgeable and informative, but it was clear to me it was all about his choices in venues, safety and lack of respect for the threat of infection that was pervasive. His personal mask wearing and distance while speaking were more than inconsiderate. I do not understand this attitude. I would have preferred wider food choice options as well. This tour could have been a great deal safer without compromising the goals of the guide.

Thank you for your feedback. We take the safety of our guests very seriously. Our guides and customers wear masks when walking between the food stops, and to listen to the guide's spiel. Downtown LA is bustling and back to its former self. People are comfortably eating at Grand Central Market and have been for months now. Our guests should gage whether or not this is the right activity for them, since we are out and about in a public market and on public sidewalks. We appreciate your feedback.

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 👍.

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.
