What’s on the Horizon for Carlsbad Food Tours 2024

goals 2024

An integral part of Carlsbad Food Tours 2024 goals for our tour company will be to increase the following: accessibility, security, sustainability, and inclusion.



We are working to ensure that our tours are accessible to everyone. Our tours are great for all ages from kids to seniors. The tours are walking, and they are wheelchair accessible for those that have mobility issues. Let us know if you have special needs that we can accommodate for our tour.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was created in 1990 to ensure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else, and today, its guidelines extend to websites as well.  Ensuring our website is accessible increases the number of people who can access our tours and activities, and improves the quality of the user experience.

One of the guidelines for our website to be accessible is for it to be easily navigable and operable. This means the content is organized logically with headings, pages have descriptive titles, and the website has consistent menus on every page. According to the CDC, one in four U.S. adults has a disability, making accessible websites essential. If the person can easily navigate and understand all of the content on your website, they’ll be happy to do business with us.
