My husband and I were visiting San Diego for a wedding and decided to do the food tour in Carlsbad and it was our favorite thing we did the whole week! The food was great and our tour guide was so friendly and knowledgeable!! I highly recommend!

Ben was very knowledgeable, engaging, and kept the tour going at a great pace. We’ve recommended this to local shops to promote and would definitely do it at a new location the next time we’re in town.

Dave was great. Well worth the money. Do this early on into your vacation because you will get great tips on where to eat.

The tour guide was knowledgeable & I enjoyed my experience.

Great tour guide, made the tour interesting and fun.
