We enjoyed this tour! The guide was VERY accommodating in that we were about 10 minutes late as we were driving in from out of town and they waited for us (we didn't know a game was going on that evening and parking was tough to say the least). We are also gluten free and our guide took care of us in that regard. We would have liked a little more history about San Diego and we felt the drinks were very watered down. But, all in all, I would still recommend it as it was fun, the food was good and we enjoyed learning about the city's sordid past.
We had a great time on this food tour!! Our guide, Cassandra was very informative and showed us all around the Gas Lamp district. She was happy to give recommendation for things to do and places to eat. She is a true San Diegan and you can tell she loves her city!! The food and drink choices were perfect and had something for everyone.
There wasn't much in the way of 'history' on this tour.. even with a small group it wasn't very informative. I took a Ghost Tour the next night that offered more 'actual historical information' about the buildings, brothels and it was a bigger group. The drinks and food were just ok... didn't fall in love with anything in particular. These tours are obviously influenced strongly by the guide.... ours was just 'average'.
The food and drinks were excellent and our guide was extremely knowledgable. She included alot of fun facts that made tour alot of fun. Definetly worth it.
After booking, I had read some concerning reviews about this tour and so became a little nervous. But there was no reason, the tour was fantastic, and our tour guide (Mike) was the most friendly and engaging AND knowledgeable we could have wanted. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole day, and everything ran as smoothly as clock-work. I am really glad we took the tour, and would point out that we brought along with us my parents-in-law who are both in their eighties, and they had such a lot of fun. Yes, I really do recommend this tour, and no, I haven't been paid to say that :-)
Great food tour, had amazing food, especially at the greek and fondue places. My favourite drink was the one at the greek place, not sure what the name of the drink was, but I could have had 4 more of those :-) Our tour guide, Amanda, was very knowledgable, and went above and beyond finding information out on her own to pass on to everyone. She was great in keeping the group together as well, as we were a large group. It was fun meeting people from different places, and from different walks of life. I had a great time on the tour.
The brews and bites were very good, and our guide personable. I thought there would be more information/background or facts about the district itself.
Found this to be interested, our guide had a lot of information about San Diego past. Of all of the tours I did, this gave me the best details and the food was good too
Sightseeing tour was good. Next time, I will try one of those hop-on hop-off ones instead.
The Harbor Tour was spent on a boat with overwhelmingly Chinese tourists. A German tourist was quite put out by their poor manners, and an Australian couple voiced a similar sentiment. My husband says they pretty much tried to push him off the boat when disembarking. If you are not looking for a Chinese commuter train experience, be selective about which boat you get on for your harbor cruise.
The cruise itself is beautiful. The city is beautiful when viewed from the harbor.
This tour was a total waste of time. It was so unorganized. The driver/guide was crass and uninformed about most of the sites we saw. He also had a very cheap sense of humor and did not make people feel welcome or at ease on this tour. I got my tour short early and skipped out on the Tijuana trip because I had such a bad impression of this tour from the Lajolla and Corada excursions. I would not recommed this tour to anyone. They are sites that are accessible via Rent a Car or City buses and Trolleys. For the price i paid for this tour, it was better for me to map things out myself and plan these excursions via public transport.
Very good tour but we were unable to do the additional harbour tour due to road works which was disappointing. Enjoyed the few hours in Mexico.
Very knowledgeable guide, (Lance). The only change I recommend is to not use the chain restaurant. The local places were more interesting and better.
It was a fun tour and Cassandra was an excellent tour guide.
This was such a fun tour. Our tour guide spent time getting to know each person throughout the tour so everyone felt a part of the group. This would be a great way to get to know new people in your own town. We had quite a few locals and everyone was really nice. The restaurants we tried were awesome and I'll definitely go back next time I visit San Diego. I'd like to do the same companies other tours and also see what tours they offer in my own city (LA).
We had a wonderful time! Cassandra is a great tour guide with an impressive knowledge of the local history.
