When I venture into a new city I always investigate and research the very best food tour operators. It’s a great way to experience (and get to know) the culinary culture of an area you’re not familiar with. You’re eating like a local. Enter Carlsbad Food Tours in Carlsbad, CA. which I experienced a few weeks ago as their guest along with Visit Carlsbad.
I participated in their original Taste of Carlsbad Food Tour. “Carlsbad Food Tours are easily walkable in the downtown area that hosts some of the best flavors one can imagine.”
“Their outgoing tour guides are fun, local, knowledgeable, and are eager to provide guests with a glimpse into the local flavor, culture, art, and architecture.”
“Embark on your food-focused excursion with locally owned Italian restaurants and cafes, where you can savor Old World dishes including generations-old recipes from Cicciotti’s. From Italian delights to French crepes, authentic Italian gelato and Strawberry Shortcake, Carlsbad, surprisingly, has it all.”
“To complement your foodie exploration, between each destination your guide offers interesting commentary about the lovely Victorian architecture and old-fashioned storefronts that fill downtown Carlsbad. Your ticket also gets you Carlsbad Food Tours’ Tasting Guide, which features local maps and exclusive discounts and coupons to give you special access to Carlsbad’s unique, artisan food scene.”
“Guests learn about the historical significance of Carlsbad as you walk down Grand Ave to Carlsbad Blvd and enjoy the majesty of the Twin Inns and the Carlsbad Mineral Spa historic landmarks.” Water is the genesis of Carlsbad.
Joining us with all the insight is Carlsbad Food Tours Founder Cherimarie Poulos and Tour Guide extraordinaire, David Jenson.
