My wife, daughter and I had a great time with Dirt as our guide. He was not only entertaining but very knowledgeable about the area.The food and drinks were all outstanding and really gave us a great impress of what Carlsbad has to offer.We would highly recommend this tour. We have done many food tours through the US and internationally and this was one of the highest food to value tours we have been on. Not a bad stop.

The Carlsbad Food and Wine tour with our Guide Cheri was a wonderful and entertaining experience. There was 10 in our group, and we all had a good time. Cheri highlighted some of Carlsbad history, plus took us to several restaurants to taste great food.

LOVED the tour with owner, Cherie. She was fun, entertaining, informative and just an energetic guide who loves Carlsbad. We enjoyed the different restaurants, got too much to eat and drink, but particularly enjoyed Gonzo, the Ramen place. The owner came out and told us their story, so it sort of made it better, but the ramen was awesome. Worth a trip there just for the food.

Well organized tour that visited a variety of restaurants from Pizza Port to Gonzo Ramen. The tour guide/owner allowed plenty of time to eat & enjoy one another’s company. I loved the fact that there were only 6 people on the tour. Tour guide also infused a little bit of the history of Carlsbad along the tour. I highly recommend!
