What You'll Get
Begin your 3-hour Santa Barbara walking tour at a central location in the Funk Zone, located near downtown and Stearns Wharf. This region once housing warehouses and scuba shops — now revitalized into a bustling neighborhood of hip eateries, wine-tasting rooms, and artist studios — is where you’ll meet your guide for your afternoon food-tasting and photography tour. Numbers are limited to 12 people for a small-group experience.
Set out on foot at a moderate pace as your informative guide shares insights into Santa Barbara’s history and burgeoning art culture. Keep your smartphone ready so you can practice the helpful photography tips your guide offers along the way. You'll have multiple opportunities to take documentary-style photos and colorful portraits in the lively Funk Zone.
Along the way, your guide stops for food and drink tastings (all included) at five restaurants, a wine bar/bakery, one microbrewery, and a distillery. (Monday tours include additional food tasting--no visit to the distillery.) Learn how to properly position your food for the best photos as you sample local fare.
After your tour you can continue to explore and capture this fun and funky neighborhood on your own.
