What to Expect
Venture off the beaten path into some of the ethnic enclaves of Los Angeles, where locals live as though they've never left home. Signs in foreign languages, traditional snack shops and markets line the neighborhood streets, making each visit an adventure.

During the 4-hour tour, you will learn how these neighborhoods came about, what makes them unique and where to find some of the city’s best and most hidden ethnic cuisine. Enjoy delicious tastings in markets, restaurants, hole-in-the-wall eateries and bakeries, making sure to include a variety of both sweet and savory ethnic foods.

You will ride the Metro to explore more neighborhoods, and observe life in some of LA’s most vibrant areas, highlighting traditional homes, architecture and cultural hot spots, from the site of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy to Korean karaoke bars and Thai Spirit Houses.

You will enjoy enough food for a whole meal, so come with an appetite!
