I took a group of retirees on their tour of Old Town Pasadena. Everyone loved it, and we are looking forward to the LA tour next year.

Our walking food tour was fantastic! The guide was really personable and knowledgeable and loved the stops we made. Took home to NY a great bottle of wine and some amazing champagne vinegar. Would highly recommend this tour to all.

Response from Fechef | Reviewed this property |
yes it would be great for kids; but I would recommend that they be older than 6. While you are walking around the farmer's market there are opportunities to sit so it should be good for kids. Have fun!

The places you go on the tour are certainly good for children and they are welcome on the tour. You still have to pay full price for each unless they are under 5 yes old. It is a good experience for all.
