What to Expect

You’ll visit multiple restaurants, learn about the history, architecture and culinary landscape of Avalon while enjoying delicious food and drink. We work with wonderful, locally-owned restaurants to provide a social, satisfying, informative & fun afternoon out. All logistical & tour details will be agreed upon ahead of time by the private group tour organizer and Catalina Food Tours.

Looking to social distance? A private food tour is the ideal way to restrict your interactions with those not in your traveling party. Private tours are limited to six people — if your group is larger we will need to separate the group into multiple tours.

We can accommodate most food allergies, aversions and/or dietary preferences for your guests – we will send you a spreadsheet to collect those details ahead of your tour.  Tours are held rain or shine.

Reservation details:

  • Purchased within 14 days of the event date:
    • Full payment made by credit card is required immediately to hold  specific time slot(s), date and tour guide(s)

What you need to know about COVID-19 and the food tour

Like everyone else on Catalina Island, we are working diligently to keep our guests and our staff safe and virus free. Masks are strictly required while on tour except, of course, when you are sipping and sampling. Along with our restaurant partners, we’ve made social distancing an integral part of our operations, which includes limiting the number of people on tour and maximizing the space between guests. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

If you and/or anyone in your party has an allergy or aversion, please let us know ahead of time by selecting the appropriate check boxes when you make your purchase.

For those of you with food aversions (not medical food requirements) – we will, of course, work with you, however, all of our locations are serving their specialty dishes, so if you are able to check your diet at the door for a few hours that would be great!

For the Avalon Tasting & Cultural Walking Tour, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled tour time so you can check in and get the best seat in the house at our first venue! No good question goes unpunished! Remember this is Catalina Food Tours, not All You Can Eat Catalina. You can look forward to being reasonably full, which satisfies most foodies on our tours! Unless you are a vacuum, you can expect to be well satisfied after indulging with all of us fellow food lovers! As far as alcohol, there are a few tastings where alcohol is involved…  YAY! (ID required) For those of you “on the wagon” we have substitutes…PHEW!

On the Catalina Happy Hour Tour, just make sure to check in 10 minutes early.  ID is absolutely required. You will not be allowed on tour without it, since all bars require ID. There are 5 drink locations and 2 of these locations on tour include a bite to eat. This is happy hour after all. We love to have tons of fun, however we do reserve the right to refuse service for those who show up notably drunk prior to joining us on tour. We would like to stay in business, imagine that 🙂
