    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Los Angeles Urban Adventures, Los Angeles, CA 90028

    Meet your guide at 2pm in front of Gaylord Apartments (3355 Wilshire Blvd.; take the Metro Red Line to the Wilshire/Vermont stop and walk four blocks west.) You'll ride the Metro and walk through some of L.A.'s most "hidden gem" neighborhoods to enjoy Korean barbecue, Vietnamese street food, tacos, and more. Don't worry about not understanding all the signs and menus in foreign languages—your guide knows exactly where to go and what to order. Stop for tastings in markets, restaurants, bakeries, and hole-in-the-wall eateries, sampling a full array of sweet and savory treats.

    Duration: 4 hours

    Stop At: Koreatown, Los Angeles, CA

    As you walk and ride the Metro through Koreatown, Little Armenia, and Thai Town, you'll also pass the site of Robert F. Kennedy’s assassination site, see traditional homes, various styles of architecture, and cultural hot spots.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Thai Town, Los Angeles, CA

    See Thai spirit houses, this cultural Los Angeles tour introduces you to the city’s lesser-known and off-beat sectors, where you’re sure to discover many treasures and discover a different side to this legendary city.

    During the course of this LA food tour we’ll enjoy enough food for a whole meal, so please come with an appetite!

    Duration: 1 hour
