The Brothels, Bites and Booze tour will introduce you to the beginnings of San Diego as a port town – learn why it became one of the more notorious red light districts of its time, and find out how this once-undesired neighborhood became a fun and vibrant nightlife destination for both locals and visitors.

After meeting your guide, you’ll embark on a journey of scandalous tales, unique cocktails and local cuisine. On the tour, you’ll make new friends, hear interesting stories, sing karaoke and explore new tastes at local restaurants*.

High energy, knowledgable guide. A great way to learn not only some of the history of San Diego, but see many beautiful historic buildings. Our food stops were varied and the bites just right. Having a larger group 16 proved to be a plus as we got to know other folks from different states. And China! A great way to spend a few hours.
