This walking tour covering Avalon's history and architecture is a charming and helpful way to begin one's Catalina sojourn. Pat, the guide for my tour, was expert and friendly. The wine tasting at the end at a harbor cafe is the perfect touch.

Took this tour on our last evening of our six day visit to Avalon. Learned a lot about the history of the casino and the island itself. The wine tasting at the end was fun! Try this tour!
