    Funk Zone
    Stop: 3 hours
    Professional tour guide will take your group through the Funk Zone, stopping at six different restaurants and tasting rooms along the way. Community garden, public murals, and historical points of interest will be pointed out along the way. Your guided food walking tour begins promptly at 11am in front of Chocolate Maya, located at 15 West Gutierrez Street in downtown Santa Barbara. Please plan to arrive 10 minutes early to check in (10:50am) and meet your tour guide. This tour is a guided walking tour. For most of the tastings, guests will be standing, so please wear good, comfortable walking shoes. This tour is not suited for those who cannot be on their feet for 2+ hours or those with physical limitations that make walking long distances difficult. Over the course of your tour, your tour guide will take you to six different locations for tastings where you will get a behind the scenes look at some of the best eateries, wineries and breweries in the area. Your tour ends about 3-4 blocks from where it begins, so at the conclusion of your tour, your tour guide will make sure you are able to find your way back to the parking lot where tour began.
