What a great way to spend the morning! So much history and excellent food - Barbara's energy and knowledge, friendships around the market and obvious passion made this an experience we'll never forget. Thank you again Barbara!

We took the walking tour of Old Pasadena. Small group of just 10. Visited several small ethnic restaurants, unique shops - olive oil, soap, etc. Met owners. Heart history of the city told by native born guide. Great food, good exercise, nice pace.

Response from Fechef | Reviewed this property |
yes it would be great for kids; but I would recommend that they be older than 6. While you are walking around the farmer's market there are opportunities to sit so it should be good for kids. Have fun!

The places you go on the tour are certainly good for children and they are welcome on the tour. You still have to pay full price for each unless they are under 5 yes old. It is a good experience for all.
