Saturday August 28, 2010 / 10:30amFlavors of Laguna Food Tasting and Culture Tour
How was your experience?
My wife and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary on the date we took the tour, everything about the tour is wonderful. It startrd out with a beautiful weather, have a nice time driving to Laguna, we got to Laguna way early, around 10 minutes before 10 AM. We parked at the suggested $5 parking lot located on Mernaid Street, there is no parking attendent on duty, we figured because we got there early, and the parking attendant has not yet come in, we could pay him on the way out, anyway we parked and walk to the address where we will be meeting at 10:30 AM. Lorraine, the tour guide is very knowledgeable to various "hot spots" in Laguna Beach, and she is very engaged with our group, our group is made up with 4 teams of 2, mother and daughter, husband & wife, boyfriend and girlfriend, we share what city we were from and if any one are celebrating special event on the tour. We all received a bottle of water, then the food tasting began, we tasted more foods after each of the point of interest. The foods are great, and the places Lorraine show us are very interesting, likes; the smallest church in the world. The tour lasted about 3 hours, just about 1:30 PM, give you the rest of the afternoon to explore Laguna. The shuttle during the Summer is Free, so after the tour ended, my wife & I catched the shuttle heading south to South Laguna Beach (you are getting on Stop# 1) to the Montage luxury beach resort (you are getting off Stop# 15). The view at the Montage is breath taking, luxury oceanfront beach property with lushly landscaped, my wife & I took a walk on the beach sidewalk behind the resort, and took a walk inside the resort. A must after the tasting tour to complete the wonderful day at Laguna. We received addition bonus when we won the $10 to the Gallo subs, gift from flavors of Laguna, and the parking is free. (Parking Attendant is not on duty when the time we left the parking lot or he/she never did come in that day) Thank you Goldstar, to help my wife and I celebrated our 28th years together with flavors of Laguna. We loved it.
