Disappointing wine, great guide.
Joseph_P, Apr 2024
Tour guy was professional and knowledgeable. However the wine that was served at the first two stops was not of good quality. Given the price of the tour it should have been much better.
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Thank you for the feedback. I'm so sorry that you didn't enjoy the wines at the first stops. At Vino Carta, they source wines from a variety of small, family-owned wineries from all around the world, and Pali is an urban boutique winery, sourcing grapes from Santa Barbara County. The wine we serve is varied to accommodate the various wine tasting preferences of our guests.

I enjoyed the wine and the pasta at the last stop. However, I felt the tour was over priced and would not repeat the experience.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for the feedback. I'm sorry that you didn't find this trip valuable. We do try to give guests a good understanding of the area in a historical sense, as well as offer and wine tastings at 2 popular wine bars including a cheese board at one of them. I'm happy you enjoyed the pasta and wine at one of the stops!
Amazing Little Italy tour
Grant_A, Mar 2023
I truly had such a traffic time on the "Vino! Vino! Little Italy Wine Tour" with Scott, I am so glad he was able to share his knowledge with us and take us on this worthwhile experience. Upon arrival, Scott warmly greeted everyone and was so friendly and courteous to the participants as if it was a group of old body buddies. We all were very comfortable and nobody had a dull moment the entire time. Everyone got to meet and have a quick review of what they are looking forward to on the tour. To say that Scott is knowledgeable and informed about the history of San Diego and its Little Italy neighborhood would be a true understatement. He energized the entire event to fit the group. His stories and personal experiences were so eye-opening and fascinating. At each location visited, we learned just about everything you could need to know about the wine and food and the country and region they came from, such a great way to get familiarized with Little Italy. I was pleasantly surprised by the wide variety of authentic foods and goods at the establishments we went to and am thinking of going back to pick up some of the very interesting-looking items that he mentioned. After all those amazing and memorable experiences, Scott was so kind to point out more areas to be aware of and treat us to an incredible dinner down the street. I highly recommend this experience for anyone of any group size, for residents and visitors of San Diego. Scott was one of the most professional and friendly people I've ever had the pleasure of coming across, a truly down-to-earth individual who goes far above and beyond anything required to provide a memorable time. I give this experience a five star rating on all counts, I don't have a single complaint or criticism to mention whatsoever. I can, without a doubt, say that there are many things you can do in San Diego that are enjoyable, but this was one of the best things I've ever partaken in, and regardless of whatever else you've got going on, you ought to check Scott's tour out. I had so much fun, I can't wait to sign up for all the other tours that Scott's team offers, I'm definitely looking forward to them in the near future.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Wow! What an incredible review! We are thrilled you had such a great time with Scott. He is so personal, and you can tell that he really loves being a tour guide.
Best Time! ☀️🌴🍷☺️❤️

We had an amazing experience! Met awesome people, ate delicious food and drank fantastic wines! Our tour guide Angela was sweet, funny and charming! Would highly recommend!

Thank you for joining us, Leyla! We are happy you had a great time with Angela in Little Italy!
Not what I would expect
Janelle_R, Jul 2022
More food, less talk. There weren’t that many food selections on the tour and all the wine tasted the same. It was not worth the money I spent.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
I'm sorry to find that you were not satisfied with our Vino tour. We try to offer a good amount of wine...4 half glasses, and 3 2-oz pours. As far as the food is concerned, this tour specifically doesn't focus too much on the food, but we try to offer some bites like calamari, meatballs, and bolognese pasta. The restaurants barely give us a break on this tour, since it's Saturday, and we reserve space at each one. I'm sorry you didn't see the value.
Wonderful tour of Little Italy!
Dori_L, Jul 2022

Great tour, two nice stops out of the three!
FeliciaKim_M, May 2022
Our group quickly became fast friends, was truly a great tour! Our guide was great, very lively and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, Vino Carta was disgusting and smelled awful. The glasses were dirty and smelled of dog, the guy serving didn't care if we were there or not, pretty disgusting which is why I only gave 4 stars.
Response from Host, May 2022
Happy to find you had a great time with the other tour-goers and our guide. We will follow up on the bad smelling glasses and venue. This is certainly a first for us with this kind of feedback. Thanks for your honest review!
Vino, food and fun!

The Wine walking tour of Little Italy was so much fun. We stopped at 4 restaurants had at least a red and white wine at each restaurant. Learned a little history along the way.
