Private Food Tours
Perfect for Corporate Team-Building & Celebrations!
An Unforgettable Catalina Island Foodie Experience!
Visit multiple restaurants and 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, and fun afternoon out. All logistical and 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.
Click the Plan My Tour button to tell us about your group, and a representative from Catalina Food Tours will contact the tour organizer within 1-2 business days.

- No alcohol
- No beef
- No dairy
- No fish
- Gluten free

*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!
What time do I arrive, will I be stuffed, and is alcohol involved on the 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.
