As a native Angeleno myself, I was so impressed with Lisa’s knowledge of Farmer’s Market. Such fascinating info and yummy food. My six friends and I had a blast. I would recommend this tour to anyone who loves hometown history and eating. Thank you, Lisa and Melting Pot Tours. Looking forward to the Old Pasadena tour with Kathy.

Excellent food. And the guides were fantastic. They had many fun facts about the places we visited as well as the area of LA we were touring.

My friend an I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and lunch in the patio that included tapas, paella, wine & dessert as well as soft drinks and water. We were also able to bring our own olive oil bottles to be filled, and we were able to shop for Spanish foods & products. The owner of La Espanola Meats was very interesting and personable.

This all started with three childhood friends wanting to get together for a fun weekend. We found out about the tour through Westways magazine. OMG, if you want an eclectic and fun adventure, look no further! Barbara, our tour guide, was phenomenal in every way. She was very welcoming and made the tour very enjoyable and a whole lot of fun! Her knowledge of Old Pasadena history was very extensive, as well as her detailed knowledge about each business we visited. We loved the tour's focus on and support of small, independent, family-owned businesses. Besides the great restaurants, the tour also featured shops specailizing in: wine, soapmaking, tea, handmade ice cream, and olive oil and vinegar. The food portions were very generous and discounts were offered at most of the shops. I can't say enough good things about this tour. We'll definately be spreading the word! Thank you Barbara for helping three lifelong friends create some special memories--you rock! (lol).

Great day at La Española! Very informative tour. But the best part was the delicious paella we were served after the tour. Wonderful store to buy all your paella essentials for home.
