Tour description provided by Viator

Experience the culture, architecture, folklore and food of Old Pasadena on this small-group food walking tour. Admire the colorful alleys, hidden courtyards and secret thruways as you seek out spectacular ethnic eateries and sweet havens for food tastings. Your local guide will entertain you with fascinating stories behind the food and local eateries of this charming Los Angeles-area enclave.

Old Pasadena, best known for the Tournament of Roses Parade, elegant architecture and cultural landmarks, is also a place for exceptional and diverse dining. On this food walking tour, a local, knowledgeable guide will lead you on a delightful epicurean stroll through the hidden alleyways and charming courtyards of this US Historic District. You’ll enjoy 10 tasting stops, ranging from Middle Eastern falafel and Asian fusion stir-fry to California olive oil, authentic Peruvian stew and Italian gelato.

Your guide will keep you entertained between tasting stops with engaging stories of how Old Pasadena transitioned from the center of town to the local skid row to the one of the most successful urban renewal projects in the country. You'll never think of Pasadena as simply the home of the Rose Parade again!

The complete tour is an easy 1.25-mile (approximately 2-km) walk in a loop with no hills, inclines or stairs.
