Lili is the best tour guide ever!! Highly energetic and wow, she knows her island History and much more. There were five in our party with two three seniors, and she was very patient as we were a little slow with the walking. Anywho, thank you Lili!! Good times!!

We toured on a day without cruise ship visitors and had the guide all to ourselves. Paula was a fantastic and thoroughly knowledgable guide who explained the colorful history of Catalina Island as well as the pedigree of the various restaurants we visited. The restaurants and food samples chosen were exemplary. We loved this tour and highly recommend requesting Paula... More

My friend and I were visiting from Sydney Australia and sadly only had time to stay on Catalina Island for 1 night. I am thankful that, in this short time, we found time to do the food tour. Lili was full of information and history about the island and was an engaging speaker. The 6 different eateries she took us... More

There were so many things to do on Catalina, and we are so glad we did the food tour. Lili was fabulous. I am not a history buff, but she may have turned me into one. She knew so much about the amazing history of this place. The food we had at all six restaurants was incredible. Over all, one... More

Lili was a great tour guide who has been doing this tour for a long time. Her knowledge of the history of Catalina was impressive, much of which comes from her own experiences of having lived in Catalina for such a long time. The restaurants we visited all had excellent food and drinks to sample. A lot of the food... More

I've gone on many tours where the Guide is very knowledgeable and accommodating, but our Guide just beats others by her sheer ability to spin locale lore, and even make the seamy side of any sordid affair seem the norm, using her ability to relate to human nature and with dead-pan delivery that reminded me of a home-town Hedda Hopper....
