The tour was interesting, tasty and memorable. Our tour guide, Robbie, was prepared, prompt and personable. We learned some interesting facts about the city, food and history. We are excited to return to this area and explore the places we want to spend more time at our own pace in the future. Whether your from out of town or from the local area, this is an experience for anyone and everyone. We definitely had an experience well worth our time and expense. We are excited to plan our next adventure.

We really enjoyed this tour of downtown Los Angeles! We live in LA, but by no means know all the good places to eat, all the history of the city, or even spend a lot of time downtown. This was a great tour for locals and visitors to the city alike. We learned a lot we didn't already know. And the food was fantastic! What a fun way to spend a few hours on the weekend. We had a cool, knowledgable and helpful tour guide, Robbie, and enjoyed getting to know the others taking the tour, who were all from out of town. We didn't have to stand in line to get our food because the tour guide just brought it to us. It was such a treat. Highly recommend to anyone visiting LA, but also anyone who lives here and wants to explore our city.

Hi Stephanie, Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience during your Downtown LA Food Tour! I truly appreciate your recommendation and kind words about this tour. There really is nothing in comparison to being a tourist in your own back yard and having an informative guide and great food. Robbie is such a great tour guide and I am so happy he could guide you to new areas around your home. It is so awesome that you took a chance to try to see a new side of LA and it has inspired me to do the same. Cheers to a great weekend, amazing food and to learning a little bit more about LA and the great food it has to offer.  Best, Brianna
Loved the tour guide, the locations we visited and the food sample sizes were very reasonable. I would highly recommend this for locals and tourists alike! Great opportunity to explore the city, learn some history and sample some phenomenal food spots!

I had a wonderful time and was able to enjoy a great atmosphere while learning a little more about a city I frequently visit.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Kassey, Isn't it amazing how you can visit a city so many times and still have more to learn! I love that! Be sure to let me know if you ever want to explore another city :) Cheers! ​Jennifer 
Tora, our guide was articulate and entertaining. Full of LA history and of the eatery’s we visited. A day well spent! Loved all the places we went, but if I had to pick a favorite it would be the grilled cheese at DTLA Cheese. And I usually don’t like grilled cheese! We will be back.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
YUM! I am craving a grilled cheese now :) I'm so glad you had a nice time and got to learn about the history and try some delicious food! Let me know if you ever want to explore a new city! Cheers, ​Jennifer
