We did the Ojai Food Tour for our office Christmas party and had a great time! The locations were perfectly selected and we thoroughly enjoyed the food and drinks we tasted. We loved hearing about the history of the locations we visited, and getting to know their businesses. Would definitely do this again!

We were 3 girlfriends who went on the Ojai Tasting Tour. Our tour guide Amy was great. She told us some interesting facts about the area and everything was timed very well. The food we tasted was good and we bought some to take home.
