Fabulous Way to Experience Carlsbad

Whether you are local or a tourist, this food tour is a MUST! It's a great combination of food, fun, and history. I live locally but had a group of women come to town from all over the country for a convention. CFT was extremely professional and made the whole experience easy. I highly recommend for this for any occasion. Too much fun!

A Carlsbad Must Do

Five of my girlfriends and I went on the Tour of Carlsbad. Our tour guide Veronica was wonderful and very knowledgeable. We loved the food, the walking and the information. Just the right amount of time in restaurants. I think they had a perfect order to the stops. I highly recommend this tour. We're going to book another one for sure!

Great Way to Explore

Cherie was a fantastic tour guide leading us through the stops in Carlsbad to include local history background. Definitely recommend those new to the area to get some ideas for dinners out, friend meetups and date nights. Will definitely be returning to most if not all of the stops we made! Thank you Cherie and Carlsbad Food Tours! We had lots of fun.

Loved It

We had a great time on the tour with Cheri! She was very knowledgeable about the restaurants and general history of Carlsbad. She also made suggestions about other things to do in the area. Definitely do the tour near the beginning of your time here so you can go back for more of what interests you. The food was wonderful. Everything was well timed.

Fun Food Tour

We had a deliciously wonderful time! The food stops were tasty and we put in almost 7,000 steps! Great way to be introduced to so many shops and restaurants! Enjoyed learning the history of the area too! No food allergies for us, but lactose-free foods were provided for the one person in our group that did! Had a great time, totally recommend it.
