We’d love to be a part of your team’s culinary adventure tour in Carlsbad, California.

The cost of a private 3 hour food tour is $75 per person, plus 20% gratuity. which includes delicious foods from 6 different places (enough for lunch/dinner), wine and or beer, plus a local guide’s presentation of the history and culture of the neighborhood.

Additionally, if you’d like to make your tour even more extra, you may also order additional  alcohol on your food tour. You may either pay the restaurant directly with your credit card the day of the tour. Or you can choose to have us add it to your tour proposal.

We also have vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options at all the food stops and can accommodate other dietary restrictions with advance notice. Kindly provide us with food restrictions/preferences before your tour.

Small and Large Group Food Tours

We specialize in large group private food tours. We are one of the few food tour companies that can accommodate large groups with multiple tour guides.

We can accommodate groups of up to 60+ people. We max out at 20 people per tour guide. Therefore, a group of 60 participants will have 3 tour guides, each with 20 people per guide.

All the groups will have the same starting and ending locations and eat at the same delicious places, but take slightly different routes. We can arrange for everyone to end the tour all together at the last tasting location.
