We’ll meet you inside our first tasting location, 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the tour. You’ll find the tour guide wearing the Beach City teardrop logo. Once everyone has checked in, we’ll begin by presenting you with your signature Beach City Food Tours tote bag. You’ll also be given a comprehensive map of all the locations you’ll be visiting, as well as exclusive coupons, should you want to return to them in the near future.
Over the next 3 hours, we’ll visit 7+ of our partner locations where you’ll experience the best food Downtown Long Beach has to offer. All of our tasting partners have been paid in advance. Along the flat, 1-mile route, we’ll occasionally stop to discuss the Downtown’s history, culture and architecture, dating back to the 1900s.
