What You’ll Do

Bianca Jaime’s tour of downtown San Diego strips away the skyscrapers and takes you back to the city’s nascent days as a fledgling port town. Though the tour covers the history of the area’s brothels, saloons, and opium dens, the only debauchery here will be a few drinks consumed at local restaurants. The trek includes four stops at such establishments, each of which offers up miniature portions of their cuisine.

  • Local History
    Learn about the seedier times in San Diego with stories from the city’s erstwhile saloons, brothels, and opium dens.

  • Local Cuisine
    The tour includes stops and samples at four local restaurants; some venues include samples of alcoholic beverages. Let your guide know in advance if you have any dietary restrictions.
