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.
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.
We had a wonderful time! Cassandra is a great tour guide with an impressive knowledge of the local history.
There was five of us, women who went on this tour. All five of us truly enjoyed it and would recommend it to only one.
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).
Brilliant nite out, and our guide was exceptional, actually the whole group was brilliant , which made the night a great nite.
This was a fantastic tour! We had a great tour guide (unfortunately I can't remember her name). Many interesting points of history, delicious food and the booze wasn't bad either. We took the trolley train from our hotel and the tour began and ended pretty close to the station.
This tour is a great way to revisit the Gaslamp area of old San Diego and see the historic buildings that have been faithfully restored. The tour also included food sampling at a number of different restaurants which gave a great coverage of the different types of foods and drinks available in the area. The chocolate fountain dessert to finish off was delicious. Well worth the walk around the area.
This tour was great with plenty of food for dinner! The tour guide was energetic and informative. Great tour for your money! You should definitely check this out.
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.
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.
Very knowledgeable guide, (Lance). The only change I recommend is to not use the chain restaurant. The local places were more interesting and better.
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'.
