This tour really did me a lot of good, as a Los Angeles resident at a loss for new places to explore. The tour renewed my interest in seeking out all that LA has to offer. I would not have thought to visit some of these restaurants, bakeries, and markets otherwise! Diane and her stories are equally as great as the food you will taste. She is such a warm, fun host and really makes sure her tour guests are well taken care of and well-fed! Whether you are a tourist or an LA resident, this will be time and money very well-spent. I highly recommend.
Looking forward to the Old Pasadena tour!

I've lived near the Farmers Market all my life and never expected to learn so much about the local restaurants. I took the tour with a few friends from New York and they loved it as well. It was just so nice to find something fun and different to do with visitors!

I lived in LA for 12 years and returned for a visit. I heard about the tour from friends and thought it might be fun. I couldn't believe how much i learned about the area i called 'home' for such a long time. It's a great way to really see some local flavor. I've been to the Farmers Market dozen of times but now really appreciate the history and the impact of this landmark market. You will not be hungry after this tour. Two tours I would say are must-do's when going to LA. The Warner Bros. tour and the Melting Pot Tour.

We were in Los Angeles for the first time for just a few days. We spent four of our precious hours in the city on this tour and were not disappointed - at all. The tour is the brainchild of two delightful sisters who were born and raised in LA. They know the food scene and have arranged fun, informative visits with vendors from the Farmers Market and with restaurant and shop owners down Third Street who ply you with their wares: doughnuts, Brazilian grill, bread and cheese, English toffee, tea, cakes, salads, sushi and more. My 21-year old son who is a vegetarian and doesn't give a lot of thought to food was thoroughly entertained. (A celebrity sighting in a cookbook store we visited was a bonus.) I think that the tour would be especially entertaining to someone who lives in the city and enjoys food. Lots of fun!
