Travel back to the late 19th century when the dirt roads of Downtown San Diego were filled with horse drawn carriages, scantily clothed women hung from window sills and 5th ave. was flooded with drunken sailors looking to have a good time. Listen to scandalous stories as you sample Italian, Mexican and Indian cuisines. Visit a brewery where you will taste fresh beer, learn how it is made, and sample one of San Diego's best margaritas!

While on your tour, your guide will walk you along 4th Ave. as he/she paints a picture of what the city was like when it was founded in the late 1800s. Explore the history and beauty of the buildings, and discover hidden secrets of Downtown San Diego. The tour will stop at various restaurants and bars where you will taste a number of the town’s food and drink.
