Food & Drink Tours

Get a true taste of San Diego

BREWERY, WINERY & DISTILLERY TOURS

Take a trip to San Diego’s best wineries, explore local small-batch distillers or go on a brew hopping tour to get a behind-the-scenes look at how some of San Diego award-winning craft beers are brewed. Transportation options include by foot, bus, train, or chauffeured limousine, which ensures a safe and fun time for everyone.

CITY WALKING TOURS

You can get to know a city in any number of ways, but one of the most flavorful is through a walking food tour. These usually combine a curated selection of dishes with a healthy helping of history, and just enough exertion to keep your appetite stimulated. Generally lasting two to three hours with three to six restaurant stops, several tours also incorporate local wine or craft beer tastings. Neighborhood destinations include Little Italy, Liberty Station, Downtown San Diego, La Jolla, North Park, Pacific Beach, Coronado, Carlsbad, Encinitas and the Gaslamp District (also offered via Segway).

SPECIALIZED FOOD TOURS

Instead of throwing a wide net, you can also keep your foodie focus narrowed to one specific item. For example, celebrate all things sweet with a dessert, tea and coffee tour. These popular tours pair mouth-watering confections with just the right tea or coffee. Or find your ultimate pie with a Little Italy pizza tour where you can taste the difference between Neapolitan or Sicilian style, brick oven versus wood-fired, and traditional or cucina nuova.

EPICUREAN EXCURSIONS

For a longer, more in-depth foodie experience, try a culinary circuit that combines visits with a local coffee roaster, artisan bakery, urban winery, distillery or brewery with an organic farm. Then enjoy a farm-to-fork meal first-hand. In addition to tastings and demonstrations, you’ll learn from each local business about their purveyor’s influences in San Diego.

 

Explore farm to table cuisine by bus, train, Segway, or a good ol' fashion walk through San Diego. Check out the list of amazing food and drink tours below and start savoring the best of San Diego's top food spots, breweries, wineries, and distilleries.
