The Ventura Food Tours is a fun way to discover the different food and drink choices in downtown Ventura. You’ll stop at a number of eating spots, talk with the owners, sample their creations and learn a little about this historic area. The tour starts at Bella Maggiore on California Street. Our tour was made up of people from all over. We didn’t just sample restaurant fare. I had the best margarita ever at Ventiki Polynesian Lounge, wonderful chocolates at Trufflehounds Fine Chocolates and exotic olive oils at We Olive Olive Oil. It was a very enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.
