What you'll do

Offering enthusiastic travelers a night of street taco tasting, while comfortably driving them throughout a five mile radius of West L.A. exploring the many incredible & unique street taco stands throughout the Westside and capping off the night at my favorite ice-cream parlor (optional).

While most stands offer taco al pastor, pollo, asada, lengua & cabeza specialities, some provide vegetarian options as well. Also on tour for you pescatarians, I have one delicious sea food focused establishment. Please inform me of any/all personal dietary restrictions, as I’ll do my absolute best to happily curate your “taco adventure” accordingly.

Taco stands tend to be cash only and on average, a modest $1.50 each (seafood is extra). Come hungry!

Gloria was super welcoming and friendly. She had top tier taco tips and took us to five places we would have never found on our own. We appreciated her recommendations. She felt like a friend we were meeting up with for dinner. Would highly recommend this experience 🌮

Gloria knows tacos, wine, wineries, skin care, ice cream, farmer's markets, chemistry, LA and all sorts of magical things. I am new resident of Venice and have 100 new ideas of places to visit or things to eat thanks to Gloria. She is warm and open and a great storyteller. And oh yeah, she knows the best tacos!

If you come to LA and you want to find those hole-in-the-wall, low key, can't find on the map taco stands this is the person you'll want to guide you. First, for $15 bucks a person (at the time of this review) that pretty much covers the Lyft cost it'll normally take for her to drive you around to the different taco joints. Secondly, it was like meeting up with an old friend, she was inviting, courteous and you can tell she loved good food as much as we did. I'd say I ate about 12 tacos and drank 2 horchatas throughout the entire voyage of about 5 stands, each a little different than the previous one and Gloria will love to talk about what their highlights are. Compared to what we have here in MI they were probably the best I've had. There were different meats available too for the curious -- asada, cabeza, lengua, carnitas, pastor -- different sauces, toppings and so forth. If I'm ever in the area and this is still available I will definitely do it again. 10/10 would recommend!

Gloria was an awesome host. This was a unique experience and Gloria took us to some great taco eateries, from food trucks to street taco stands to a great little hole in the wall taco place. Gloria was personable and knowledgeable about the taco stands in the area. Gloria has a fantastic personality and we had a great time learning about her and her background, family and her passion for tacos.

Gloria was lovely and this experience was really fun! We tried things we wouldn’t have without her expertise and ended the night very full and happy :)

Gloria's taco tour was the best!!!! She drove us around to all these small taco stands with limited signage - exactly the kinds of places that I would have been unsure of, or nervous to go to on my own. (I'm from a small town in Canada where we don't have taco stands like these and I guess I'm easily intimidated!!) But as Gloria explained to us, she goes to the taco stands on the regs with her friends, and so she knows exactly how to order and how to get the most delicious tacos at every place. We ended up going to 5 AMAZING taco places (seriously the one outside Whole Foods was I think the best taco I've ever eaten IN MY LIFE 😳) that we NEVER would have been able to try on our own since they weren't walking distance from the Venice boardwalk (we are staying nearby). The places were also a nice range of different types (some handmade tortillas, some fish/veg, one hole-in-the-wall restaurant.. we even had a surprise churro halfway through!), and lots of delightful chat with Gloria as she explained the Venice taco culture to us. And then we capped it off with some amazing ice cream!! All in all, a delightful little evening, and, most importantly, some AMAZING TACOS!!! 10/10 would book again (and will next time I'm back in the area!! As Gloria told us there are SO MANY MORE to discover!)!! Totally recommend.
