Take a Tour
"We had so much fun! We had no idea we were going to eat so well and so much! The tour gave us a great 'taste' of what different restaurants in Ventura are like and totally made me want to go back and get more. I highly recommend these tours to both locals and tourists in Ventura!" - Laurel C.
Come with us on a tasting tour of some of Ventura County’s best food finds…
Ventura Food Tours aren’t your typical walking tours. Instead, our tours offer a unique blend of food tasting, local history, culinary education, and of course, walking. Our tours are fun and intimate, giving guests a behind the scenes look into some of the area’s best eateries.
From that tiny bakery tucked into a corner of Ojai to that favorite fish taco in Ventura, it is our pleasure to share these wonderful food finds with our guests. Whether you're a visitor, new to Ventura, or if you've lived here forever, our tours are sure to delight.
Our guided walking tours run approximately 3 - 3 ½ hours. Throughout the course of the tour we stop at six different locations – some for larger sit down tastings and others for a few bites and a conversation with the chef.
Topics along the tour route may include:
- The chocolate making process
- How to pair fine wine with the perfect, complimentary cheese
- The nuances of California olive oil
- Local history and architectural points of interest
Guests will also sample food from a variety of cuisines - from Indian food to tacos, pommes frites to cupcakes. Maybe you like trying new things, maybe you like experiencing a new town through its food, or maybe you just like to eat. Either way, strap on your walking shoes, bring along your appetite, and join us on a tasting tour!
