Our Tour Guide Lance was awesome! He obviously researches as much history and information he can about the area to add to this tour. Very fun, informative and yummy! We have been on food tours before where we got to enjoy tiny samples at each place... this was like full-sized eating! I enjoyed the perfect blend of fun, food and history, highly recommend this tour.
We left feeling full, contented and more knowledgeable about the history of San Diego, not just the brothels etc, but also the history of how San Diego came to be! This was well worth the money and the time.

Great tour by knowledgeable guide. Don't eat before you go on this trip. The portions are small but lots of different stops, so lots to eat. Loved Mezze, both the cocktail and mini burger were delicious. Gaslight District is vibrant and entertaining. Loved San Diego.

This was a fun and interesting...and filling tour! Bianca was our guide and did an awesome job sharing her knowledge of the history of San Diego....especially the Gaslamp Quarter with the group. The food and drink at each of the four restaurants we visited was really good. It was a really fun tour....and the bonus was the full meal added in.....AND drinks!

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.

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).
