My husband and I are foodies. Although I'm a local, I thought it might be fun to try a food tour. I kept hearing about Carla and Linda's food tours from various people but hadn't met anyone who had actually done it so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was fantastic. They know how to pick the restaurants and because they know the chefs, the group gets specials that are off menu on occasion. We met 12 other people and Carla and Linda were great hosts making sure that everyone felt comfortable. Linda is a wonderful tour guide with a plethora of great, interesting information as we take the talk through town. We went on the Vista one. I know I'll be checking out the other food tours. that they do in Oceanside.

So these tours do serve up the chefs' best and do include history and fun, but what we didn't at first realize is that there are three Oceanside tours and one in Vista, as well: North O'side Heart of O'side South O'side and now . . . VISTA We have now taken them all and loved each one. Thank you Carla and Linda for a good time and some amazing food! This is a great gift, as well!

"Best Food Tour Ever!"

Carla and Linda were the best foodie guides ever! They know historical information about the buildings, the owners, and the town. They also knew almost everyone. They introduced us to anyone we meet here and there and suggested great places to eat after the tour (which we did) because they know their food. They are also great supporters of their town and it shows. They have great enthusiasm and passion for what they do. They made us feel like family after 5 minutes. There was never a moment of silence amongst us. Also the food at the 4 location was phenomenal! It was like a 4 course dinner! Thank you so much for all the hospitality and kindness you showed us.

We had so much fun on Carla and Linda’s Walking Food Tour! I am someone that loves trying to new places and food, this is the best way to adventure around town and try new things! We are local here in Oceanside and on this tour we learned so many new things about our town and tried some new places we haven’t been! The food and service at each place was fantastic! I highly recommend booking yourself a tour! We did the South O tour and I can’t wait to book the North O tour when we have friends and family in town! So Yummy!

My husband and I played tourists in our own backyard. This was so much fun because Linda and Carla really know and love the community of Oceanside. So many gems to discover.
