Catalina Food and Walking Tour
From US$ 100.88
Try a taste of Catalina Island on this 3-hour culinary walking tour. Led by a local guide, you’ll travel along the iconic waterfront architecture, passing the famous Casino Building, and learn about the cultural and culinary history as you go. You’ll stop at six local hotspots to sample fresh seafood, sweets and other traditional Catalina foods. This small-group tour is limited to 16 people for a more intimate experience.
What to Expect
Your tour will begin in central Catalina Island, where your foodie guide will meet you. Be sure to arrive with an appetite, as the area is known for its great restaurants, delicious seafood and, of course, beautiful views of the Pacific.

Head first down Front Street to admire the original Catalina tiles from the early 20th century. As you walk, you’ll make stops in six different locations, sampling fresh seafood, sweets and traditional homemade recipes. Your guide will share stories about the culture, cuisine and history of the island as you travel from one location to the next.

Continue along Avalon’s charming streets, stopping to view the notable architecture along the water. You’ll see the historic Inn on Mt Ada — a one-of-a-kind guestroom mansion that was once home to the Wrigley Family — and the famous Casino Building.

Before your tour concludes, treat your taste buds to one last local favorite, a beer float. Your guide will part ways with you in a central spot, where you can continue exploring Catalina foods and attractions on your own.

Fill your belly, fill your mind

A tour with Lili is sure to entertain and enlighten you with speed-talking on the history of Avalon/Catalina Island and how it evolved. The food would be almost secondary if it weren't so tasty. My big takeaway was the caramel and white chocolate coated apple...More

Great Food With A Bit of History

We thought the amount of food was perfect. You get small portions at every place and then walk a bit between them to work it off. You don't drink too much so that was good for me as we were already drinking on the ship....More
