Story Time for Adults.
We don't just taste food. We specialize in bringing culture, architecture and history alive through stories. Locals can't believe how much they learn on our tours.
Enhance Your Stay in Santa Cruz After the Tour.
We'll take you to the places you may not find on your own. Take one of our tours on the first day of your visit and you will know exactly where to go and what eateries to go back to during your stay.
We take you into local restaurants that were created by locals. No chain food here. You get to explore our local food scene and support local chefs and restaurant owners at the same time.
Three Reasons NOT to take our Food Tour:
You Don't Enjoy Walking or it's Difficult.
There's no getting around the fact that we walk (1.8 miles on Santa Cruz tour and 2.3 miles on Capitola tour). If you don't like walking or can't walk without pain or walk very slowly this tour is not for you.
You Don't Like Tasting New Foods.
Seems kind of obvious, but if you don't enjoy tasting new foods, this tour is probably not for you.
You're Looking for Fancy Cuisine.
We have tasted almost all the food in Santa Cruz and Capitola and we take you to our favorite places. However, our tours don't visit the fanciest, most expensive restaurants in town. We take you to places that are passionate about serving great food regardless of price.
