Great, fun tour, with a great enthusiastic tour guide. Loved the 1st restaurant that we visited and would never have thought San Diego could have supported so many brothels!

It has been more than a year since we took this tour and we still talk about how much we enjoyed it! The food and drinks were great but the best part was the history and stories about the area that our guide shared with us.

Great knowledgeable guide. The tour took us to four different places which provided delicious 'bites' and a booze to compliment their offering. Between the different restaurants, we were treated to enthusiastic tales of the brothels as we were shown the different locations.
My advice, take the tour, but don't eat first...... lots of food and drink!

This is such an amazing area with a lot of interesting history. Our stops were diverse and we had plenty to eat.
The guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. There is plenty to see after the tour if you want to stay. we parked in a garage near the starting point. Go early because you have a lot of traffic in the area.

So much fun - Stephan was full of energy, information and fun. We had a wonderful group -
lovely people from San Antonio, terrific couple from North Carolina/Virginia area and 4 young
travellers from Belgium. Food was great - company lots of fun. Would highly recommend this for
an evening outing in San Diego. We went back to 3 of the 4 places to eat during the rest of our week's vacation.
Although we have stayed in SD many times - this was a highlight.

Great tour. My BF who had been stationed there didn't know half of these stories. Great food and a great deal.

High energy, knowledgable guide. A great way to learn not only some of the history of San Diego, but see many beautiful historic buildings. Our food stops were varied and the bites just right. Having a larger group 16 proved to be a plus as we got to know other folks from different states. And China! A great way to spend a few hours.

The tour guide did a great job - she was fun, friendly, and informative. I plan to stop in for longer visits at more than one of the places we visited on my upcoming trip.

This was a great tour. It was a walking tour but the guide was really excellent. We were with a small party which made it better because we could all hear everything well. The food samples were very good, quesadilla and sangria to begin, then on to an Irish pub for mince and potatoes with a small Guiness, then thirdly a slice of pizza and small beer. Finished off in fourth establishment, The Melting Pot for fondue and cocktail. It was good to learn the history of the area too.

Katie, was a great guide. She explained historic and fun facts about the Gaslamp district while stopping in four different locations where we tested food and drinks. I would do the tour again, it was fun and the food was really good.

I give this a great review because we did eat at some places we probably would not have stopped at otherwise. Our guide was enthusiastic but got some of the history scrambled which was amusing. We have been to San Diego many times and taken this tour previously especially for the walking and the new restaurants we stop at each time. Our favorite this trip was The Field an Irish pub where we had shepherds pie. We do not drink alcohol so the guide had non liquored beverages for us at each stop which was nice.
