Wonderful varied foodsand a history lesson to boot
Sep 2021
Chris was a fantastic and very knowledgeable guide. My sister was visiting Los Angeles from Florida and two friends who had recently done the tour raved about it so we booked it.

Not only did we enjoy the variety of foods offered, we were treated to a terrific history lesson about downtown. Although I have lived in West Los Angeles for over 40 years, I learned things about the development of downtown and the early architecture and movie palaces.

We dined on a fantastic almond croissant, barbequed beef brisket, a heavenly grilled chees sandwich, tacos, potstickers and finished with blue ice cream.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting LA, or to Angelinos who rarely get downtown, too.

Highly recommend
We’ve done walking tours before but not food tours. Chris was an excellent guide; very knowledgeable on the history of downtown, knew a lot about the restaurants where we stopped, and all the food was delicious. The tour was fast paced but we are older and had no problem
keeping up. I would highly recommend if you like food, you like learning interesting things about where you are visiting, and you like to walk. We had a great time.

Outstanding experience
Aug 2021
Our family had never gone on a food tour before so we didn't know what to expect. Sidewalk Tours made it so easy! The parking directions and meeting location were very clear. They accommodated our food allergies. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and an LA resident who knew so much history. We saw a wide variety of sites, and the food was also full of variety and delicious!! It was great value and we would do it again!

Jul 2021 • Family
Our family of 4, including 2 young adult foodies, really enjoyed the information presented and the variety of foods we tasted. Chris was a very knowledgeable guide and the tour moved along at a great pace. Look forward to trying some of the other tours offered and would recommend as a fun activity for anyone visiting LA.

This was such a rich experience. I got to learn lots about the history of LA but I also got to eat lots of amazing food! We were stuffed by the time we got home. This is my new main activity for future vacations and trips. Let sidewalk food tours do the planning for you!

Chris was an excellent guide. He knew a lot about the city and gave us information about additional places to visit. We visited 6 different places and the samples were great. The only thing I would have changed was a little more time in between tastings. I got full too quickly.

We were so happy to have found this operating food tour. We love food tours and have been on many in different cities. This one did not disappoint. Our guide was knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the LA downtown district. The restaurant options were also very good and we enjoyed every bite.

Food tour
The downtown food tour was okay. Lots of history about the area. Food was good but not spectacular. We had to stop and get more to eat after it was over, so plan accordingly.
