Lili and Paul was our tour guides. Paul was born on the island and had a lot of personal stories to tell. We did the 3 hour food tour and stopped at 6 restaurants where the food was great. We highly recommend it.

So very educational and tasty. We had 6 food tastings at specialty restaurants and a history lesson of the Island to boot. Our guide Lili was informative and we had a great experience. I am sure all in our group felt the same.

My wife knows I like two things: Being by the water and eating lots of food. She got us the walking food tour hosted by Lili, who is super personable and knowledgable about all-things Catalina. She's clearly loved and respected, which is who you want to be with if you have no idea where to start. After the tour she... More

Had a great time with Paula, the tour guide. Learned more about the island and its history than on other tours we did. The food was all around good. We ended up going back to a couple of the restaurants during our stay. It's good to take the food tour on the first day.

My daughter and I booked this tour during our Carnival cruise. We both loved the fact that our tour guide knew so much information and history about Catalina Island (Avalon). The food and beverage tasting was great! Plan on sending our husbands on the same tour for their birthdays. Would love to do it again!
