My mother and I came to Carlsbad for sunny warmth for a week. We always do some type of walking tour in each place we visit for an introduction to the area and recommendations for things to do and places to dine. Ben was our guide and we were fortunate to be the only people on the tour as it was their first tour for the season after having been closed for COVID.
We liked all of the stops and there was a good amount to eat at each stop without feeling it was too filling. Ben gave us information about each stop as well as city information and history along the way. The walk wasn’t difficult at all and that was a good thing as my mother has arthritis and she had no complaints during or after.
This is a personal, low-key food tour and we felt engaged at all times. Ben was very gracious in answering our questions and it felt as though we had a personal friend showing us around town. The food choices were well selected and there was clear forethought in the sequence of the stops. It was an overall great tour and we would recommend it as I can’t perceive anyone would have a bad experience. Importantly, Ben was very aware of our food allergies and preferences and ensured they were accommodated.
