    Funk Zone
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Begin your 3-hour Santa Barbara walking food tour at a central location in the Funk Zone, located near lower State Street. This region once housing warehouses and scuba shops — now revitalized into a bustling neighborhood of hip eateries, wine-tasting rooms, and artist studios — is where you’ll meet your guide for an afternoon food tasting and photo tour. Set out on foot at a moderate pace as your guide shares insights into Santa Barbara’s history and burgeoning art culture. Keep your smartphone ready so you can practice the helpful photo tips your guide offers along the way. You'll have many opportunities to take food photos and colorful portraits in the lively Funk Zone. Along the way, your guide stops for food & drink tastings (all included) at restaurants, a wine bar/bakery, & one microbrewery. Learn how to properly position your food for the best photos as you sample local fare. After your tour you can continue to explore and capture this fun & funky neighborhood on your own.

Save your money. If you want a food tour, this isn’t it. It was 3 hours long. For a”funk zone” food tour, you would expect more food and more alcohol. We spent 45min at the first place “the project” where we each had one sweet potato taco. It was good, but we were there so

I am very sorry to hear your time with us was not enjoyable. We take all feedback very seriously and are always striving to be the best at what we do. While we have recently done additional training with our staff to make sure our tours are meeting all guest expectations during this crazy time it sounds like this may have fallen short for you. Our tour stops are not full meals, but rather tastings that should eventually add up to a full meal. Also, part of the tour is to recommend other places as we go. We visit a total of 7-8 places on each tour. And while we would like to visit more, there simply isn't time or in this case some of our favorite places just aren't staffed enough yet to have us back at this time. And I apologize that some of our restaurants required a little wait time. They are still getting their feet under them again since reopening. As for seating, we are still adhering to state guidelines about distancing and seating guests separately who did not travel together. Sorry if that was confusing to you, but we are simply trying to follow state guidelines so that we can keep our business open and also keep our guest's health and safety as a top priority. In any case, I hope the rest of your time in Santa Barbara was enjoyable and we hope that you will visit our city again.

What a fun time! My wife and I took the Funk Zone tour during a brief vacation in Santa Barbara. There are other food tour companies in the Santa Barbara area, but we selected this one because of the photography aspect of it. It did not disappoint. The tour took us to eight
