What you'll do

On our Secret Food Tour: Los Angeles, you’ll be taken into the heart of Venice Beach to discover a lively and vibrant neighborhood with a rich foundation and of course, mouth-watering dishes. You'll experience firsthand what happens when great food meets culinary creativity.

We'll enter a community that fosters stunning street art, both on the main roads and weaving through the city neighborhoods. Venice Beach is a community that embraces diversity through art, culture, cuisine, and hospitality.

At the end of your tour, you'll have sampled some of Los Angeles' most delicious dishes and gained a better understanding of our culture and history.

  • We'll begin our journey taking in the fresh ocean breeze on the iconic Venice Fishing Pier.
  • First up, you'll enjoy what the locals call a surfer's breakfast, an antioxidant-rich smoothie bowl topped with granola, bee pollen, and hemp seeds.
  • Next, you'll enjoy a picturesque walk through Venice's famed canals as you discover that they aren't just in Italy!
  • After which, our delicious Secret Dish will show you that sometimes the tastiest things are plant-based.
  • Did you know that L.A. is considered the burger capitol of the world? At our next stop, you'll devour a decadent Cali-style cheeseburger as you admire the meatheads pumping iron at Muscle Beach.
  • And, of course, no visit to the California coast would be complete without a crispy fish taco right on the boardwalk.
  • And speaking of the boardwalk, make sure your phone is charged so you can snap some photos of the area's iconic graffiti walls or grab a video at one of the world's most famous skateparks.
  • But keep that phone handy because we'll be rounding things out with some totally #gramable quesabirria dipped in consomé.
  • And finally, cool down in the sand with a scoop of locally-made ice cream from a 25 year old mom-and-pop shop.

I would like to take your tour but it is already fully booked. Is there a way I can do the tour?

Our tours are often sold out very quickly. If the date you requested is not available, please do not hesitate to email us and we can see if there is anything we can do. We cannot promise but we will try our best to sort something out for you.

Is there a lot of walking?

To join our food tour, you must wear comfortable shoes. There will be around 45 mins of walking but it is not too difficult and is broken up between food stops. The guide walks at the pace of the tour members, you will never be rushed. There are no stairs on the tour or hills.

How many people max are on this tour?

We take 12 people maximum. If you are more than 12 people, please do not hesitate to email us and we will try to see if we can accommodate.

I cannot find a way to print the confirmation. Is it OK if I have it on my phone?

Our guide will take care of everything. Should you wish to try something special, please inform our guide and they will do their best to make you happy.

Where does your food come from?

The food and drinks are top-quality, fresh and local!

What if it rains or I change my plans?

Unfortunately, the weather is unpredictable in Los Angeles. Bring an umbrella and we will try to be more indoors than out. We do not issue refunds as per our terms and conditions. We also inform you that we never cancel a booking even if we have only 2 people! However we do reserve the right to cancel the tour if we feel the weather is extreme, and we cannot run the tour due to this for more info see our Terms and Conditions: https://www.secretfoodtours.com/terms-and-conditions/

Can I pay the tour in cash?

You must book directly on our website. We do not accept cash payments. Our online payment is safe, secured and SSL protected.

Why do we need to pay for booking fee?

The booking fee that you have to pay is up to our ticket provider and we can't change it. All our clients need to pay for it upon booking. The booking fee charged contributes to the cost of the ticketing system to provide an excellent service to our customers.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
