(This sample is included as part of your tour price, but you may instead choose a margarita, beer or another beverage of your choice).

What people are saying about San Diego County

It was fun. We walked around downtown SD learning about the history, while discovering old building that we never knew about, and got to solve riddles too. While on our adventure we stopped and had ice cream and lunch too.

We were on vacation with our grown up kids and played 3 groups of 2 in San Diego. It was a LOT of fun, we all loved it, and it was a very unusual way to explore the city. Highly recommended.

Very nice walking tour through Old Town, our guide was great. The tequila (margaritas) and tocos at the end exceeded our expectation as it was enough for a lite lunch.

Jennifer was a fabulous guide! She made the tour really fun and what a great way to end with margaritas and tacos! The Al Pastor were phenomenal.

Generous servings of tacos and margaritas and tortillas.
