Mary and I (DIANE CORTE) enjoy our Los Angeles Avital culinary experian, learning all the historic background of Downtown LA. We enjoyed the walking.
The next day we enjoyed a late lunch in Koreatown at the Kobawoo House, we got to eat all our favorite dishes and the price was very good, we enjoy a coffee next door.

I am so thrilled to have found Avital! The downtown LA tour was fantastic, and our guide, Penny, was a pleasure. She was friendly and informative and kept a good pace. The restaurant and menu selections were excellent and I love that there was some historical information included as well. Even though I’ve lived in LA for almost 15 years I learned new things and discovered some great new restaurants. All we had to do was show up. I can’t wait to try the other tours soon!

This was such a fabulous experience. It was a wonderful way to discover great food, while getting to know my co-workers even better.

Penny, our guide was full of knowledge and history about downtown Los Angeles.
Each stop was very unique, not just with the diversity of the foods but with the history that came along with the establishment.

I would definitely recommend this tour not just to people who are visiting LA but to people who just moved here.

We were a few minutes late so we had to join Penny and the gang at the first stop. Although that wasn't an ideal way to start our tour, Penny was incredibly nice and enthusiastic. The members of the tour were also super kind. We came into it having a light brunch beforehand and the food we ended up eating was all delicious and filled us up even more. It was a great time and we even witnessed Ghostbusters filming on the street!

The Downtown Culinary Tour was a great experience! Our tour guide Penny knew the ins and out of Downtown LA and not only did she take us to great places with amazing food but she gave us the history of each place and Downtown LA in general! She was very knowledgeable and I recommend this tour to anyone that loves food and wants to have a great time!
