Ben was our guide and he was very knowledgeable Pleasant to be with and a nice kid. He showed us some of the local art on the outside walls, told us about the trees Oh, and about some of the buildings. The food was awesome although we had a hard time eating everything. Well worth the effort.

Carlsbad a nice small city
, Jul 2021
Learning the history of the area was done very well. The food tour had too many sweet and not enough savory. Wine tasting and strawberries not a good fit. Cheese and salami or something similar woukd have been much better. Guide was excellent.
Highly recommend

David Jenson was an amazing guide with a tremendous fund of knowledge of Carlsbad. It was interesting to learn about the history of Carlsbad and noting some of the distinct architecture of the downtown area. The food selections were excellent. We learned a lot about the area and wish we had done this tour on the first day of our visit rather than the last day.
