I had the pleasure of taking the Icons of Avalon Tour this month and it was fabulous! Very relaxed, informative, and a great way to get to know a little history behind the gorgeous architecture that graces the cute little town of Avalon. Pat Jamieson, our delightful tour guide, made the walking tour a ton of fun giving us just... More

My wife and I visited Catalina on January 15-16. We had several tours scheduled for Sunday but on the spur of the moment we decided to do the Icons (and wine tasting) tour on Saturday afternoon. We met our tour guide, Pat, near the Casino and proceeded to walk around the Casino and then toward town. Although Pat said that... More

My wife and I did the "two fer"; we did this tour and the tour company's other tour, which was a Ghost Tour. Both were very cool. We really liked this one since it was so laid back and informative. The guide, Pat was very knowledgable, funny, and professional. We loved it.

Every once in a while you come across a wonderful thing. This was it for us. Very romantic as advertised and informative. Wine wasn't too shabby either! ; - )

I like to take these local tours when I travel. The quality of this tour was very good and the price was very economical. It rained a little but it added to the ambiance. It was nice to see the wine tasting has sushi available with a extensive variety of sakes. I highly recommend this tour.

We attended the Jazz Festival this past weekend and fell in love with the island. One of the first things my husband and I did was take the Icons tour. I can see why they call Catalina the island of romance. This tour put us in the mood. The history was amazing and we loved our docent, Cari. I normally... More

We have been to the island a number of times and although we thought we knew everything about it, we quickly discovered there is so much more. The people that run this are incredible. They don't miss a trick. Very professional.
