5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

We really enjoyed this food tour. Half walking/half via mini bus. The guide was really pleasant and provided lots of info, not just about the food stops but also the sights we passed along the way -- we even hit some unexpected traffic on Sunsent Blvd and she was able to keep everyone interested in the sights making even the traffic worth while. Oh, and the food was great too -- chocolates, pastrami and some finer dining!!

I booked this tour for myself, my son, and his girlfriend while visiting them in LA. It was so much more than what I had thought!!! The food was wonderful, great variety, quality, and quanity. Our guide Trish was perfect. I have been to Hollywood many times, but she told stories, and showed us things, I never knew before. Our driver AJ also made the day quite fun!!! What a great value and a fabulous day with perfect memories :)

So pleased I booked this tour - not only was it a food tour but also a sightseeing tour as well. Trish was absolutely awesome and so passionate about the food and ensuring that each of us had a wonderful experience. She has a great relationship with the food operators and we were treated like VIP's. I enjoyed every food stop and truly worth the money and a wonderful experience. Thank you very much Trish and I'll be recommending this tour to any friends and family heading to LA.

This tour was great! Maureen and Luis were amazing. I personally loved the first Restaurant which is Mexican and usually I wouldn't choose Mexican as a first choice! Thanks for the awesome tour around Hollywood too and I would recommend this if your not already doing a Hollywood tour!
