Cathy was a great host. We really enjoyed each taste at the different local restaurants. She gave a great history to the town and we really enjoyed the tour.

Cathy was our tour guide on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon. She had a wealth of information, not only about the food and drinks but about the lovely Island of Catalina. What a great experience:)

We took the tour on May 1st with Cathy. (My wife thinks her name was Diane). Anyway, it was a wonderful event and we will surely retake it the next time we visit Catalina. Each stop was unique and each tasting was so different and GOOD! I had never thought of combining gelatto and ginger beer but what a surprise. We have already recreated this treat at home. Our favorite spot was Bluewater Avalon. We had several meals there and the setting, food and service were outstanding. Dan and Sharon Albee, Escondido, CA 92026

We appreciate your praise so much! Cathy was your guide (sorry, Sharon) and we're happy to hear you had such a wonderful time with her. Those beer floats really do tend to be the crowd favorite - we're pleased to hear you've adopted them at home!
That's great that Bluewater Avalon became a favorite of yours - we will make sure to pass on your praise to their manager and owners. We look forward to seeing you the next time you are on Catalina Island. Thank you for your review and for joining us!

I did the food tour in February and had a blast. If you are visiting for a few days this would be good to do early as it gives you some great ideas for dining later in your stay. Our guide/host was a lot of fun, sorry I have forgotten his name but is was a great tour.

Thank you for your review - we're glad you had such a great time. Jordan was your guide (he's our token male tour guide) and we're glad he made the tour great for you. We're ecstatic that you found taking the tour such a useful resource for future dining locations - so many of our guests have mentioned how helpful the tour has been in making the rest of their stay on Catalina Island a pleasant experience. Thanks again, for taking the time to write a review.
