This was a great tour, even for a local like me! Although I'd been to the Farmers' Market before, the tour highlighted some food and venders that I hadn't noticed before. The Third Street experience was great--and took me down a street I had never...More

It means much more to me knowing about the history of the restaurant/food outlet when there's a knowledgeable guide explaining it to you while you savor the food. I attended the Farmers Market/West 3rd Street tour and it's the best tour I've been in LA!...More

yes it would be great for kids; but I would recommend that they be older than 6. While you are walking around the farmer's market there are opportunities to sit so it should be good for kids. Have fun!

The places you go on the tour are certainly good for children and they are welcome on the tour. You still have to pay full price for each unless they are under 5 yes old. It is a good experience for all.
