The tour was a great way to learn about Catalina and Lila knew her history. She was fun, effervescent and loves Avalon. The food was excellent and very filling for small plates. The one hiccup was at the Lobster Shack, an alternate restaurant since Steves Steak House was closed. The place was too busy to seat the tour, even though... More

Hi, Nancy! We're so glad you enjoyed your time with Lili. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. The Lobster Trap is kind enough to be an alternative tasting location for us in the off-season when other locations close. We would love to have them on the tour all the time, but as you unfortunately... More

The food on this tour is great. Our guide Lili started off great. She is very knowledgeable about the venues and history of the island. For me I left with an unfavorable experience for two reasons. First, she went out of her way to accommodate special needs. At one small stop I asked if I could try something that was... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your recent Taste Of Catalina Food Tour. Island living can be a bit more costly than the mainland.
