- Taste divine handmade tortillas and fine tequila
- In-depth exploration of San Diego’s historic Old Town
- Goes far beyond your typical trolley tour
Visiting San Diego? This fantastic guided tour of the Old Town is an absolute must! You’ll hike the Old Presidio Trail to the site of the first-placed cross in the state, which marks the ‘Birthplace of California.’ Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the city and the Pacific from the trail, before heading back down to take care of what is probably by now a serious hunger. You’ll stop at a unique outdoor bar to taste a delicious handmade tortilla, and if you want to help it down with a shot of tequila then here you’ll find a wide range, and a bartender happy to explain how to choose a good one. Already you’re excited - and this is just the start of what we consider an essential San Diego gift experience.
Next, tour ancient haciendas and stage coaches, and wander an open-air mercado full of local handicrafts and artworks - your guide has an eye for authenticity, so you need have no worries about picking up a fake souvenir here! You’ll see more historic sites, including the oldest brick building in San Diego and a landmark cemetery, pausing only for more mouthwatering tortillas from street stalls. Next up - a treat for tequila fans, a tequileria visit where there are literally 1000s of bottles on display, and you’ll taste one of the very best in the world! Finally, arrive at one of the finest Mexican restaurants in San Diego for a final yum tortilla, just in time for Happy Hour.
