Inspired by local traditions and cuisine, Love City Food Tours was founded by a foodie dietitian and a Virgin Island native. We know St John is more than it’s beautiful beaches and wanted to share Love City's history and food scene while connecting fellow travelers and locals.
Our food tours are designed to be a fun way to fill your belly and explore Cruz Bay! We strive to provide unique food experiences for guests while supporting local St John restaurants. We believe food brings people together and there is no better way to form a connection than over a great meal. Come visit us for an enjoyable, safe and informative experience!
Our Founders have been giving unofficial tours to visitors for years!
