- $48 for one ticket to a Capitola culinary walking tour (up to $75 value)
The walking tour traces the cultural and architectural history—as well as the culinary offerings—of the colorful town of Capitola.

Santa Cruz Food Tour
Local guides call upon their passions for both history and culinary scenes to share their wisdom during their afternoon walking tours. The Santa Cruz food tour eschews the more touristy spots along the boardwalk and wharf. Between tastings, the guides walk through the most historic neighborhoods in town. They also happily arrange tours that accommodate vegetarian diets.
