Please be sure and let us know when you purchase your ticket if you (or anyone in your group) has a dietary restriction (e.g. vegetarian, vegan, diabetic, allergies, etc.).  As long as we know in advance, we will accommodate your needs.

Absolutely not! The tour combines architectural commentary, historical facts, local culture and culinary insight into a unique 3-hour experience. Imagine walking through Seal Beach, eating delicious food created by local artisans while learning about the neighborhood from real locals.

More FAQs

Food truly brings people together. It was like a progressive dinner party through town. We sat with different people in our group at each location and we had time to walk and talk with each other along the way. Great for any group!
