Los Angeles: Avital [Food] Tours (#AvitalTours)

After attending the YOU ART WHAT YOU EAT event, I wanted to find out more about Avital Tours.  They’ve been featured on national magazines and television shows from CNN to Travel Channel, and rank high on Yelp and TripAdvisor.

I discovered that the company started off in San Francisco.  They’re a food tour company that’s built by locals for locals. So you don’t have to be a tourist to take a tour. In fact, most of the people in the event I was at are all LA locals, who work and live in Southern California.

The Los Angeles tours are broken down into 3 tour versions:

  • To a tourist visiting LA, looking for more than touristy destinations
  • To a local who wants to learn more about our great city
  • To a company who wants to do team building

I decided to select The Local, which is a 3 hour walking tour. looking

Our 4-course progressive prix-fixe dining experience begins with a welcome drink and then visits 4 restaurants in 3 hours – two appetizers, one entree, and one dessert, with a sprinkling of culinary history and stories in between.

There are 2 walking tours to choose from:

Downtown LA photo2and Venice Beach

They also added a Korea Town Food Tour which is limited to 12 people.

Prices for the 3 hour tours are (16+ yrs): $79.00, or with alcohol (21+ yrs): $95.00.

If you need a unique gift, they offer gift cards. It’s quite an ideal event for a girls night, celebration, or even a group outing where you can re-discover Los Angeles as a local, hosted by a fellow local. Private events are available, with a 6 person minimum.
