Great food, company and history! Angee was the best! It was pouring rain, but that didn’t dampen the experience. Would highly recommend!
Well worth it!

Wonderful! 10/10. Would definitely do again. So much fun to taste and see a few of the hidden gems in SLO. Angee has so much knowledge of the local history. We brought our teens and they loved it too.
Super Fun Way to Spend a Few Hours Exploring SLO with an Amazing Guide

It's hard not to love San Luis Obispo. I've only had a few brief visits in the past so for this time (extended visit) I decided this tour would be a good way to learn a little about the town and the food. A great decision! This is a walk-able town with an interesting history and many great local food options. Having a guide who is knowledgeable, accommodating and fun made this a 5-star experience. My goals were to learn a little about SLO while eating some good food at places I might not have tried or even been aware of - check and check. Angie does a great job introducing you to a variety of options - BBQ, Brunch, Peruvian and enough sweets to last you a month. I consider myself a connoisseur of treats (if only because of how much I consume!) and the chocolatier we visited was world class. Not an exaggeration. In my opinion this is a must-do for anyone visiting SLO. P.S. - I enjoyed it so much I booked the Mojo Uptown Tour.
