Alighting upon San Diego's Old Town state historic park, the Tequila, Tacos, and Tombstones tour whisks guests on 2.5-hour romp through the first Spanish stronghold in California, fêting sightseers with engaging tales of the city's storied heritage and local hauntings. Guides highlight details of the region's beginnings, visiting eerie sights such as San Diego's oldest cemetery and the haunted Whaley House, where ghosts still linger over unfinished business such as never learning how to surf. City steppers then meander through the architectural leavings of the land's first settlers while learning its rich lore, starting with Spanish missionaries and ending with tales of the California Gold Rush. During the tour, guests nosh on a selection of Mexican cuisine from local eateries such as Casa Guadalajara and Old Town Mining Company, enjoying carnivorous and herbivorous offerings as they absorb the architectural know-how. A variety of tequila and other potent potions greets parched palates at points along the tour, helping re-wet whistles left dry from terrified gasps, nervous giggles, and spirit-conjuring renditions of "Wind Beneath My Wings."
