Overview
Discover the diversity of Los Angeles on a tasting tour of the city’s eclectic neighborhoods, food trucks, markets, and local-favorite eateries. A guide escorts you by Metro Rail, that way you can skip the city’s hectic traffic and see far more than you can fit in on a walking tour. Plus, with a guide to lead the way you don’t have to worry about navigating the confusing public transportation system.

Additional Info

  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • Near public transportation
  • Your tour highlights how Los Angeles is a patchwork of communities formed by immigrants that looked for a new opportunity in America. Nearly every nationality has a little enclave in the greater Los Angeles area and your tour visits Koreatown, Little Armenia, and Thai Town. Visiting these communities allows you to learn from their culture and taste the great food they brought to the city. All the vendors come from the country they represent and are family owned and operated.
  • Your visit to the Spicy BBQ is so unique that if the tour is sold out, so is the restaurant. Therefore we agreed to visit the restaurant at a time that wouldn't conflict with the owner's normal business hours.
  • The communities you visit during the tour are all battling with gentrification and your visit helps to prove that the current communities have to stay to maintain the diversity that LA is known for.
  • Most travellers can participate
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 12 travellers

Fun and tasty walking tour through Little Armenia, Thai Town and Korea Town. Our guide, Summer, was a font of knowledge on the immigration history of LA. Interesting and tasty at the same time. Would definitely recommend it.

I'm a food tour guide myself so I know the effort that goes into a good tour both before and during the actual tour. Cheyenne nailed it. She's a student of the city and effortlessly shared her knowledge. The food was great too. But it was even better when contextualized by

It was a present to myself on my birthday. I hadn't done a tour like this in Los Angeles. I had done walking tours in other cities, as a tourist, and thought I would find out some more about my own area. First of all, the food was amazing. It was a small group of eight people,
