    This was a languid lunchtime, 3-hours walking and eating tour through the Gaslamp quarter of San Diego, capably led by Aparna. As a combination of history, culture and cuisine, it was hard to beat. We ate at 5 places taking in some fusion-style Bagels as a starter, Greek meze items, Thai samplers, Mexican tacos and finishing off with an overabundance of locally made ice cream. I had wondered if the choices were reflective of the sprcial place of particular commnities in San Diego, but it turned out that they just highoighted the diversity that makes up San Diego. In between courses, we were brought around some of the most interesting streets and buildings of the Gaslamp Quarter. Aparna regaled us with stories from the past, laced with history and humour. Aparna was superb and kept us mentally and gastronomically fulfilled throughout the tour! I would recommend this tour very highly as a good introduction to the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego and a teaser of the varied and excellent dining options to be had here. And because this tour limits the number of participants to 6, and there were just 4 of us besides Aparna, it was a very warm and personal experience with the ability to get to know fellow travellers.

    Ask to have Hamberto as your tour guide. He was amazing and fun and informative.Had a great time talk and eating and getting to know our group. At the beginning we had issues on the American side with parking to even start the tour. Hamberto sent us a link and even came and met us directly at our car to help us with parking. He is very sweet and kind and shows you all the great spots. It was one of the best tours I have ever been on high recommend. I will say get there very early for parking if going on a Saturday.

    Our family of 4 had a wonderful time on this tour! We had amazing food from 3 different locations. All dishes were delicious!!! There was more than enough food!! We also learned about the history of Little Italy as well has the history of the restaurants we dined at.

    Anthony was our guide and was delightful and knowledgeable. He made sure all parties in our group of 14 were taken care of.

    Would highly recommend this experience!!

    My family and I took the park tour and we all enjoyed it (even the non-baseball fans).Our tour guide was a retired lady and she did a fantastic job at explaining everything. We learned a lot about the history of the Padres. It was cool to be able to go into the visitor locker room and even into the dugout. We have toured other ballparks that didn’t allow us to get such an up close view. There is a lot of walking in case you have seniors or small children with you. There was access to elevators for those with strolllers. We paid $10 to park right across from the stadium and that seemed reasonable especially since we walked around after the tour for shopping and dining. Fun!

    Stefan was an amazing tour guide. He had great energy and had extensive knowledge of the area and the beer they had to offer. I had never thought to pair foods with different kinds of beer. Really cool experience highly recommended.

    I havent been out of the country much so I went on a tour. The guide was running late and texted us to cross the border on our own which kind of freaked me out but it was actually really easy to cross in to Mexico you just walk straight into the building south of the train station and pretty much walk through nobody even asked me any questions or for an ID going in. I have Verizon and my phone service cut out not far across the border. We walked around the streets a bit, saw some street art and businesses, walked through an art gallery, had some tequila samples at a shop, and ate a meal of 2 tacos and a sample of chips and salsa at no charge with the option to buy beverages then went to a market area for souvenirs then took a taxi back. The areas we were in all seemed safe.

    The tour guide Bernice was great! I really enjoyed how she told the history and jokes. It was easy to find them, and I was interested the whole time. We took an uber and got there early for a snack. Didn't have to worry about parking.

    The description on getting to Tijuana isn’t accurate. It should inform you that you have to cross the border on your own prior. (Not dangerous) However, our tour guide Victor was amazing. He texted me prior to getting to the border and waited right outside of the Mexican side. Victor took his time to explain the city to us and you can tell how passionate he was about his city. He made us feel at ease and really see through the eyes of the locals. Thank you, Victor for a fun experience!

    Tasty and fun! My friend and I tried some food we never thought about trying.. The rest of our group was so fun to hang out with and we ended up going out with them after the tour. Our guide, Stefan, was very knowledgeable about San Diego and not only gave us some great information about the East Village but also had some great recommendations on what to do for the rest of our trip!

    This one is more for the history buffs than the ghosts fans, but a truly enjoyable experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable about multiple aspects of San Diego's and especially the gaslamp quarter's history. He talked about architecture, and the people, the businesses and how people died, the economy and of course the ghost stories. I would have given it 5 stars if we had gone into a supposedly haunted building to actually look for ghosts
