Mission Statement

To Provide Quality Entertainment, Enjoy Delicious Food & Have a Great Experience

TOURific Escapes was founded by Trish Procetto and Matt Rubenstein, two Los Angeles natives with a passion for travel, food and fun. In fact, this adventurous couple exchanged their wedding vows on a glacier in Juneau, Alaska in May 2010! Trish and Matt have traveled the world, individually and together, and have been fortunate enough to take in many great sights and experiences. But they agree, there is nowhere else they’d rather live than the great city of Los Angeles! With so many different neighborhoods, there is never a shortage of new places to explore. The excitement and glamour of Hollywood was a natural place to start. Since the launch of their top-rated Hollywood Sites & Bites Tour in 2010, they have expanded to include Chocolate Tours, Movie Location Tours and Private, customizable tours.

Trish received certification from the International Tour Management Institute (ITMI) in 2009, after enjoying careers in a variety of industries, including serving as a crew member on several major cruise lines. Her broad range of travel experiences, her love of people of all ages, and passion for food combine to give her a unique perspective on Los Angeles. At one point, her interest in food led her to live by the motto “I’ll eat at a restaurant only once.” And in LA, that’s a great way to taste new flavors. She welcomes you to join her adventures in this great city and looks forward to meeting you. She is definitely an extraordinary tour guide, and will enjoy being your hostess, driver and guide on every tour.

Matt is a commercial pilot, who realized a career dream flying air transport category aircraft. He has worked in the aviation industry for many years, allowing him to see the world both as a pilot and tourist. From the bazaars in Istanbul to the temples of Japan, Matt has a varied set of experiences to draw from, but being a native Angeleno inspired him to launch TOURific Escapes in 2010 with Trish. He was the original driver for the company, and now serves as the Chief Technology Officer when he’s not in a cockpit.
