Downtown LA Taco Tour

The Basics

3 hours 4 courses $50+ per person

Your Taco Tour

Our 4-course progressive prix-fixe dining experience visits 4 taquerias – with a sprinkling of culinary history and stories in between.

Our Downtown Los Angeles Taco Tour focuses on quality over quantity.  We will sample 4 tacos, one from each taqueria, and strive to shift your perspective on what is a taco.

Our value is:

  • Our fun and knowledgeable guides
  • Curation of the experience through high quality restaurants and dishes
  • Stories of the restaurant owners, chefs and neighborhood
  • Facilitating interactions with the community
  • Seamless logistics (tables are reserved, guests are seated and food arrives quickly)

 

The Facts

We are a small boutique company, so tours often sell out. To get your preferred tour time, we recommend purchasing tickets 1 to 2 weeks in advance.

  • Hear the stories of chefs, restaurant owners and industry experts!
  • Tours Available:
    • Saturday May 5th from 3pm-6pm
  • Alcohol pairing upgrade for guests 21+: $16 per person for 2 tasting drinks
  • Flat route, approximately 1 1/2 miles
  • Tour begins in Downtown Los Angeles. Click here to see your meeting location.
  • This is a social dining experience. We feel the best dining experiences are the ones in which we’re seated around tables sharing food and stories with others. Therefore, we have a 4-person minimum and a 20-person maximum. If the minimum number of guests is not reached, we will contact you to reschedule onto another time or date, or offer a refund.
  • Want to upgrade to a private tour? Email groups@avitaltours.com to request your date and time of choosing.
  • Gratuities not included – please consider tipping your guide
  • Parking: We understand that parking may be difficult in Downtown, so if you’re coming from the Westside (Santa Monica, Culver City, etc.), we highly recommend taking the Expo line metro. Otherwise, there are multiple recommended parking garages near to the start location in DTLA ranging from $5-$20 per day.
  • Advance Tickets are required
