Bring an appetite for the Encinitas Food Tour - This was an outstanding food tour with an excellent variety of restaurants. Ben, the guide, is extremely knowledgeable about food, the history of Encinitas, and the history of each restaurant we visited. There was a nice mix of Ben choosing the food we sampled (every one scrumptious) and our selecting dishes ourselves. I enjoyed the tour so much that I’m planning to take the Carlsbad tour also. Strongly recommend this tour and especially Ben.

Great day with Ben on Encinitas Food Tour - We had an amazing time with Ben today on the Encinitas Food Tour. It was very enlightening about the history of Encinitas. In spite of living in the area for over 20 years, we found several places we had not been to before. We enjoyed all the food from sweets to pizza, pasta and tacos.

Great variety and fun!! - This is a new food tour that was designed by our guide, Ben. We had so much fun on a previous tour that we decided to book this one with him too. The food on this tour was delicious and there was a great variety of tastings with inclusions of wine and beer. The history of the area was interesting and seeing local art murals added to the whole experience. Definitely worth the money!!
