Your tour will begin in central Catalina Island, where your foodie guide will meet you. Be sure to arrive with an appetite, as the area is known for its great restaurants, delicious seafood and, of course, beautiful views of the Pacific.

Head first down Front Street to admire the original Catalina tiles from the early 20th century. As you walk, you’ll make stops in six different locations, sampling fresh seafood, sweets and traditional homemade recipes. Your guide will share stories about the culture, cuisine and history of the island as you travel from one location to the next.

Continue along Avalon’s charming streets, stopping to view the notable architecture along the water. You’ll see the historic Inn on Mt Ada — a one-of-a-kind guestroom mansion that was once home to the Wrigley Family — and the famous Casino Building.

Before your tour concludes, treat your taste buds to one last local favorite, a beer float. Your guide will part ways with you in a central spot, where you can continue exploring Catalina foods and attractions on your own.

This is the 5th food tour I have been on, The guide was a bit “rehearsed” which is why I gave the tour 4 stars. Great food and lots of awesome info about the island. I would have changed the order of the tasting as as eating Carmel apples and taffy after the first course seamed odd, Put dessert at the end of the tour after the savory bites

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this walking food tour! We didn't realize we would get so much history from our guide Lili. She was awesome. We got good

Our tour guide, Paul, having grown up on Catalina, was superb in knowledge of the island, both history and current trends. The establishments he took us to were all excellent with great variety and he hadfirst hand knowledge of all the proprietors. Portions were adequate considering we were doing a tasting at each

Meh, none of the food was mind blowing. The best was the coconut margarita at the end. The tour guide enjoys what she does, but in some of the one on one conversations I thought she boardered on questionable with her views and could've kept her thoughts to herself. If you are a first timer to Catalina and looking for a way to get oriented, or a solo traveler looking to kill time, then I would recommend this tour.

This was a great experience. Paula, our guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. You get a brief history of Avalon and very interesting information regarding it's origins. My wife and I enjoyed the whole thing. The food was very good and gave us insight where to eat while we stayed there.

We visit Catalina Island once a year but have never done a food tour. After this experience I wish we had done it sooner. We had the best time! Our group was amazing and the Food Tour Guide - can I just tell you about her? Her name is Lili and she was the absolute best. She made that food tour what it was. I couldn't imagine having anyone else!! Lili was hilarious and informative all at the same time! Will definitely recommended this tour to our friends and family.
