Rey lead an engaging and delicious food tour of Venice. The selections were great and the food was substantial. Many of the restaurants we definitely would have missed without his guidance. He offered interesting history of Venice and LA and was a very hospitable host. Would absolutely recommend this tour.

Great day walking around Venice learning the city's history with our guide John. The hole in the wall food stops were some of the best poke, sausages and mini donuts I have ever tasted!

"Good food, great guide"

We love to take food tours when we visit a big city, and the downtown LA tour was great. Our guide, John, had an intimate knowledge of the area and had visited some of these places as a child, so we got both historical and current information. There were 3 of us, and we all thought that the stop at Philippe the original French dipped sandwiches and Juanita’s on Olvera were the best stops, though we completely enjoyed the Hong Kong bbq and Burgerlords, as well as yummy almond cookies. The best part, however, was the walking and sightseeing and all the information that John had that we otherwise wouldn’t have ever heard about. I would recommend this tour to anyone, and try to go with John, his love of the area and knowledge about it were a huge part of our enjoyment.
