Please ask us about our private food tour packages. A private food tour is a great team building activity for your business or corporate group - as well as a fun way to celebrate a birthday, bridal shower or family reunion. We can create a custom tour or tasting event for your group, designed to fit the occasion and your group. Minimum group size is 8 guests (10 guests during peak season). Maximum group size is 36 guests.

Some examples of food tasting experiences we can create for your group include:

  • A Taste of Santa Barbara, where we taste at a series of restaurants and shops in the mid-State Street area of Santa Barbara. French macarons, gourmet cheeses, Italian food, gourmet chocolates, local wine, and a few dishes that have been featured on the Food Network are amongst the tasting options.
  • Our Funk Zone Food Tour (available weekdays only) or Rise and Shine Farmers Market Tour (available Saturdays only) in downtown Santa Barbara.
  • Walking tour in Ventura where the group will learn about Ventura history, agriculture, and be introduced to some of the areas best eats, including ceviche, Polynesian fare, cheese, olive oil, gelato and even wine or beer tasting.
  • Walking tour of downtown Ojai where we stop at six different shops and restaurants for tastings and conversations with many of the shop owners and chefs that make Ojai the great dining destination that it is. Beer, wine, baked goods, tamales, olive oil, and locally made gourmet popsicles are amongst the offerings.
  • "Who doesn't love beer and chocolate?" tour in Ojai or Ventura. This tour is perfect for groups on a tighter budget or a shorter time frame. During this two hour tour, we'll stop at a few local gems for chocolaty treats and finish up with a fun and educational beer tasting at local watering holes, Ojai Beverage Company or Barrelhouse 101.

Corporate groups, team-building, wedding parties, bridal showers, family reunions, school field trips for kids, and other gatherings are a perfect fit for your very own Ventura Food Tour. Give us a call or email us at and let us create your perfect tour!
