from Secret Food Tours San Diego
San Diego is known across the states for its miles of sandy beaches, temperate weather and now, great food. With an incredibly diverse range of influences from across the globe, 'America's finest city' has adopted an array of vibrant cuisines and added unique twists to make it their own. Using the freshest ingredients and some of the finest chefs, this city will provide the perfect foodie adventure for a delectable Secret Food Tour.

The downtown area is one of the best places in the city to see the roots of all the cultures that have contributed to our cuisine. With old hotels, historic buildings, and our colorful areas like Little Italy, this area is truly emblematic of the rich cultural heritage that makes up the fabric of San Diego history. As you stand on these historic streets, you'll be able to see the nearby downtown high rises and get a sense of the evolution in architecture and culture that has developed over generations.

The diversity of restaurants chosen was outstanding and their tasty samples were delicious. Plus tour guide Allison provided an interesting history of the city and the selected eateries. We were so sated by the end of the tour that we cancelled our dinner plans for the evening. Our only disappointment was that Allison agreed to email pictures she took of us and never did, so we have no remembrances of this outing.

My sister in law and I were visiting SD and I bought her the tour for her birthday. I have done many Secret Food Tours in Europe and this was my first in the USA. Allison is a superb guide. A local with lots of restaurant experience, she is a true foodie who loves sharing that passion. This a must do when you plan a trip to San Diego.

Allison was a fabulous tour guide. She incorporated San Diego history and culture with fabulous bites. We were stuffed by the end of tour and glad to have the walk to work some off. Downtown is filled with historic buildings and charm. Definitely upgrade to the drinks package. The margaritas at the King and Queen restaurant were delicious, and I had my first taste of warm saki. My friend does not eat beef or pork, and Alison whipped out alternate choices at several stops. She even helped us find a local shop to pick up some goodies for later that night. What's not to like about a guide who loves looking at photos of your dog!

We loved so much the food, the history and all the elements that Alyson combined in this tour. She knew a lot about the city, the food, fun facts, etc. She made the tour super fun. Alyson is the best guide tour ever. Now this tour is a MOST to do in SD.
