We had an enjoyable and relaxing 3 hour tour around LaJolla. There were 3 stops with food and drink- Italian (pasta and wine), Mexican (taco and Margherita), Mediterranean (spinach spanakopita and pita with feta dip along with sangria) and dessert was gelato . Portion sizes were generous. Our guide was friendly and informative. She gave information of the area while we walked from the different restaurants. There was good communication between So Cal and myself, so we didn’t have any problems with meeting times/place. I would book with them again! 😊


The choice of foodie stops was excellent -- we've visited La Jolla many times and hadn't known about the special places and cuisine that we experienced. Todd was also a great host who customized the tour route to suit us on the fly, had numerous local insights and anecdotes to liven up the stroll and was really good company with his personal stories at each stop. He really made this a very memorable experience and we fully recommend it to newcomers and frequent visitors alike.


Amy our tour guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. Took us to great restaurants and sights!!


Raul was the perfect tour guide. The restaurant choices presented us with cuisine from the area. We learned the about the culture and important people that shaped La Jolla. It was an enjoyable afternoon.

Brittany F

Raul was pleasurable and informative. The food and beverages were nice. The locations were beautiful. No rush. Sma group.


My husband and I are locals. We did the tour to further explore our local gems and to learn more about our town. Anaparna, our guide, was amazing! A fountain of historic knowledge, warm, and enthusiastic. The food and the drinks were outstanding. (Special shoutout to Puesto who accommodated my husbandz’s dietary restrictions at he last minute.) We’ll be doing more tours with you to be sure!


This was a casual and easy way to enjoy some history and good food in La Jolla. I loved the small group atmosphere and the leisurely pace.

Renee M

Food & drinks were A+, Amy was good but cut out 1/2 hr early; didn’t escort us to the cove destination. We were bewildered.


Aparna was fantastic. She was full of information and knowledge about the little Italy area isfantastic. I highly recommend taking the tour, as the wines were good and very generous pours


It was a fun thing to do with my sister. I would consider it a food tour. We started eating and drinking at 11:00. The guide was fantastic.
