A "Taste" of San Diego (GCC/PCC) Day Tour Calendar
Food Tour With Step-On Guide

Departing: Wednesday, August 9, 2017

1 Day Package
1 Meal Included

Price: $109 Per Person


This popular tasting tour explores the diverse cuisine of “America’s Finest City,” and is led by a knowledgeable and charming step-on guide who is a local expert on this area and a true foodie! While we explore some of San Diego’s most unique and interesting neighborhoods, we’ll experience first-hand the city’s burgeoning local food scene – most of the establishments we will visit have become neighborhood icons and some have even been featured on the Food Network as “must try” places. In the hip North Park area of Downtown we’ll see its Craftsman-style neighborhoods and learn about its fascinating history, as well as sample delicious coal-fired, thin-crusted “craft pizza pies” at a trendy restaurant. The East Village was the “Warehouse District” for a growing San Diego from the late 1800s to the late 1900s, and then became an artists’ colony and eventually home to the ballpark and new Central Library. Here we will sample beer at a brewery considered to be one of the top craft breweries in San Diego County. While we taste in its impressive tasting room located in the historic Wonder Bread building we’ll learn how San Diego has become the “Micro Brewery Capital of America.” Ocean Beach is San Diego's funkiest beach town and it has been said that the 1960's never really left this community; the locals have been known to protest anything that might change its unique small town atmosphere. Here we will sample some down-home barbecue favorites at Phil’s BBQ, voted “Best BBQ” by San Diego Magazine for 11 straight years and featured on the television show, Man vs. Food. Hillcrest was one of San Diego’s first suburbs thanks to the streetcars that made it a convenient connection to downtown; it has evolved into a community known for its diversity, theaters, shopping, and fabulous restaurants, but it hasn’t lost its village feel! Here we will sample treats at a San Diego institution specializing in an ever-changing menu of sweets that are baked fresh daily and hailed as some of the best desserts in San Diego. The shop has won national awards for its cakes, pastries and other treats. All visits subject to change.
