    One hell of a tour is all I can say. Really gives you a glimpse of beauty that is San Diego. Deciding on which tour I was to take I chose this one because it appeared to have the best interests for what I wanted to see. It lived up to those expectations and more! Fun locales and fun experience throughout! Morty was an awesome tour guide and gives great info on the locations and what is around. Found some great spots to check out when I return to SD someday. I love the tour bus as well. Very spacious and with the open windows easy to see the beauty that is San Diego. I highly recommend this tour for anyone that just wants to see the SoCal lifestyle up close without the hassle of having to do the driving.

    very nice tour. We got to see all the beaches and beautiful sights that we would have missed if it wasn't for this tour, our tour guide was very informative

    We were fortunate that we were the only people to book the tour that day so we had a personal tour with Morty. He is very entertaining and knowledgeable about the San Diego area. He pulled over when my wife saw something that she wanted to take a photo of. He took the time to explain what we were seeing. It was entertaining and information and I recommended it to a few other people that were attending the same convention.

    I recommend anyone coming to San Diego to go on this tour you won’t be disappointed and my tour guide Morty was funny and informative

    The southern California coast line is a must see, especially for those living inland. The beauty is overwhelming and the activities associated with the cliffs and the Pacific ocean particularly the surfing, hang gliding and kayaking are sights to behold and to engage in if you are so inclined. Certainly, a camera and a good pair of walking shoes are a must. The seals sunbathing on the rocks in La Jolla were unfazed by our presence making for some very intimate photos. The serenity of the Self Realization gardens overlooking the Ocean were pure California. The seven hour tour goes very quickly not affording much time at any of the attractions as the guide keeps moving at a rapid pace. Re-visiting some of the stops at one's leisure is a good idea.

    Loved the tour and would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to visit the beautiful beaches in the San Diego area.

    great tour!

    The tour was good and we saw all the areas that were listed on the website. However their were only 3 of us that day, and so we were driven around in a small car versus the bus listed in the online tour discription. It was not a very comfortable way to spend the day and we would have cancelled if we had known the transportation had been changed.

  • 18-Jul-2017

    Of the places listed that we were supposed to visit, one closed on Mon and 2 were just drivebys. So, you really only visit 3 beaches, the Cabrillo Monument and the Torrey Pines Gliderport. In addition, no historical, geographical, geological facts provided. No ability to get water and food inedible.

    We were the only two people on the tour which was great in the sense that it was private. Because it was just the two of us however, the tour was taken in a Prius. I have nothing against this type of car but spending all those hours and getting in and out of the backseat of a Prius is a different story.

    We enjoyed what we saw, but with just the two of us, our guide was kind of like Chevy Chase when took his family on Vacation and they visited the Grand Canyon. Everyone stood there to take a photo and he promptly says Let's go! so they can get back on the road. Our guide was a very fast walker who was always on a mission to walk to the next point of interest. We were on vacation and would have preferred to enjoy the walk and surroundings rather than - speed walk to this stopping point - look - move on Chevy Chase Grand Canyon Style. I finally just decided to walk as a nice pace and enjoy the scenery - letting him wait on us. The best part was when we were allowed to do some walking to see the seals and hand gliders on our own.

    Ultimately, this tour has a lot of places to go so we always felt pressed for time to move onto the next location. We would rather have missed certain places than sped through those we saw. When considering this tour, hopefully yours will also have enough people to ride in the bus mentioned in the tour rather than the backseat of a Prius and you get to enjoy your surroundings. .
