Historic San Diego Food Tour Highlights
San Diego is home to the oldest settlement on the West Coast of the United States. Over time, its culture has been influenced by the Spanish, Mexicans, and Americans, all of whom came out to this far-off location in pursuit of new opportunities in the Wild West. It’s been home to the likes of Wyatt Earp and many other interesting characters who made their mark in the development of San Diego.
So Diego Tours will take you back-in-time on walking tours through our historic areas of Old Town and the Gaslamp Quarter. Along the way, you will taste a sampling of the foods inspired by this historic past.
So Diego Food Tours
Here is a summary of the historic food tours:
Often called the Historic Heart of San Diego, the Gaslamp Quarter is the city’s most popular dining and entertainment destination. With more than 150 bars and restaurants and 94 registered historic buildings, this nightlife district has a lot to see and do, as well as an interesting, R-rated past.
On the Brothels, Bites and Booze walking tour, you’ll learn about San Diego’s beginnings as a port town. Discover why it became one of the more infamous red light districts of its time, and find out how this once-seedy neighborhood became a fun and vibrant San Diego neighborhood.
With your knowledgeable guide, you’ll embark on a culinary journey of scandalous stories, delicious cocktails and flavorful local cuisine. On the tour, you’ll make new friends, hear fascinating tales, sing karaoke and visit local restaurants.

Take a walk on the ghostly side of San Diego on the Tequila, Tacos and Tombstones culinary tour of the Old Town district, also known as the “Birthplace of California.” One of the best places to spend an evening in San Diego, Old Town is also considered by some to be haunted, so buddy up and prepare to get spooked while walking past El Campo Santo Cemetery and the Whaley House (officially designated as a haunted house by the US government).
On this Old Town walking tour, you’ll admire the original adobe homes from the 19th century and stop at restaurants to taste authentic Mexican cuisine and sample cocktails. Come with an appetite — by the end of the tour you’ll have had the equivalent of a full meal.
A fabulous introduction to San Diego food and history, this culinary walking tour will dazzle your taste buds, titillate your sixth sense and appeal to your sense of adventure.
