It was so much fun and we learned alot about the area from the tour guide. Not the best food tour I have been on, but nowhere near the worst. I just wish they hadn't done two mexican resturants, not my faviorte food, but it would have been nice...continued

Travel into a world of scandal and debauchery as a guide leads you through the streets of a famous Stingaree District, formerly known as one of the main red light districts in Southern California, with more than 120 brothels at one point in time. The tales of the past are funny and will blow your mind! Get to know the roots of why this area has only recently been safe enough to walk at night, and has become the main nightlife and dining destination in San Diego.

Your guide will take you to some of the most interesting restaurant/bars in the Gaslamp. Get acquainted with the nightlife of this fascinating district while you learn about its history. Each restaurant offers a unique taste of one of their specialties, and some of them also provide a small sample of one of their specialty cocktails. Taste one of San Diego’s most popular cocktails, delicious Mexican food, and check out some of the newest and hippest bars in the Gaslamp.
