I really enjoyed this tour and highly recommend it! it is a great way to visit the Old Town in San Diego and learn a bit more about the birthplace of California. Our guide Michelle was lovely. We had some great tacos and tequilas, going from one restaurant to another. It was a small group of nice people and the atmosphere in the restaurants were very cheerful.

This tour was a great introduction to the Old Town of San Diego! We tried a few local specialties which were very tasty, and we really enjoyed the fact that we were in 4 different local restaurants in one evening, and trying different typical food and drinks. We also loved that it felt like being in Mexico for the evening, but without having to travel there and feeling very safe! I would really recommend it!

Would have been better if we were told ahead of time we would be eating what amounted to a good size supper when all the stops are included. Very tasty and historically informative. Highly recommend it. Our guide Kevin provided a good amount of historical information on Old Town.

Fun and tasty tour of Old Town. Had good margarita's and tacos at each stop. You will get full, don't worry. Each restaurant stop give you enough time to sit, chat and order drinks at the bar if you're that thirsty.

We had a nice walk learning local history through Old Town stopping at several restaurants where we sampled food and drinks. We were pleasantly surprised at how much food you actually received and the interesting ways familiar foods were prepared. We do not drink alcoholic beverages and all the merchants were very nice about making special drinks for us. Where we stopped for dessert of root beer floats at end of tour there was a very nice patio area near by with a free live band where we sat for a while.

Taco and margaritas at first stop weren't very good, but the tacos, quesadilla, churros and margaritas at the next three stops were good. Graveyard tour was very interesting, and our tour guide was excellent. Nice small group, just 8 of us.

This tour seemed to be relatively new and had some kinks to work out. The meeting address had changed since I booked it, so it's vital to reconfirm with the tour group. One of the restaurants seemed a little unprepared for our group, but all of the food was exceptional and the drinks were outstanding. The stories of the places on the tour were a little urban legend-ish, but it was probably meant to be more entertaining than educational. This tour is a great way to visit several of the excellent restaurants in Old Town San Diego and get a feel for the sights there - Old Town is really worth the visit. The guide was very nice and accomodating. This tour is probably best for adults - I brought my 11 yr old son and he was a little freaked out by the ghost stories in the cemetery at night. I wouldn't say it's inappropriate for kids, just that it's going to depend on how well your kid handles ghost stories (and we brought him a bottled drink along since I didn't - and still don't - know if the restaurants would provide soft drinks.) Overally, it was a fun little tour and a good way to explore Old Town.

The food was great but it was difficult for our guide as we were a family with another younger couple. We did not have a lot in common to get the group to bond...but I would reccommend it.

We were really looking forward to enjoying the drinks and food along with learning a bit of history. Rochelle was friendly and enjoyed telling stories of Old Town. It was a perfect evening weather wise and we did meet some friendly people. We have been on several city food tours where there is more mingling of participants however we found that those who were in groups of fours stuck to themselves and were hard to socialize with. We also felt like the size of the group was too large 20 /- people.

We felt the best taco and margaritas were served at Café Coyote you could detect the drinks had tequila. However with each restaurant we visited you were left wondering if there was any tequila in the drinks. The final stop was at a shop which served up root beer floats the tastiest part of the agenda when arrived the proprietors seemed surprised to see us and were not at all prepared to serve such a large group0. I think a self guided tour would have been better you can buy your own margaritas 9with detectable tequila and choose tacos that may be more suitable to your palate.

We usually love this kind of tour - small group, led by a local, history, etc. Unfortunately, this one didn't quite meet expectations. A lot of waiting. Not a lot of history or information. The guide was a nice enough person, but this was what I expect from a $10 tour - not a $50 tour.

Only 1 and 1/2 margaritas. The taco at the first restaurant was good but the food at the other two restaurants just so so. Not much history except for the cemetary but even that seemed to be all guess work. I would have preferred another margarita over the root beer float, it upset my stomach. The tour was not worth the money.
