    Our tour guide Frank was very knowledgeable and personable. Tour was well-planned. We spent at least 20 minutes at each stop. It was great having small group of 10. Tour was excellent way to see San Diego.

    Tour guide was very knowledgeable and we saw much of San Diego. Wish there was more time in LaJolla to shop and Old Town to shop and eat something ethnic there!

    Sadly, we were informed about 15 minutes before tour departure that the tour had been cancelled. Unfortunately we had spent 56.00 to get an uber to the departure location before we got the call.
    Very poor planning!

    Frank was incredibly knowledgeable about San Diego and the surrounding areas. It was a packed full tour and well done. We saw the Hotel Del Coronado, Balboa Park, La Jolla and the elephant seals, Little Italy and Old Town. I highly recommend the tour.

    I had some time to spend in San Diego and I took this city tour, 4 hours were enough to see beautiful places and know more about the history of this great city

    Great overview of city highlights! Guide was friendly, courteous and timely. We did, however, loose about 30 minutes from the tour waiting for 2 people who never showed and then returning to the pick-up spot to get them but they didn't show the second time either. Late policy needs to be changed!

    It was a very fun and informative tour. We were able to see a great deal, the sights were lovely, and it gave us a wonderful overview of the entire city and La Jolla, the sea lions, Mt. Soledad, Old Town, Hotel Del Coronado, and many others. Frank was an excellent tour guide, was very personable, informative and knowledgeable. The only issue was there were folks that were late, we waited 20 min,.and during the tour Frank's boss told him they were waiting at the Depot, so we made a special trip to pick them up, and they weren't there. This impacted others on the tour, and took time away from the tour for all of us. The management should have scheduled them on a different tour. Frank was very accommodating to us, as we had to be back at our hotel to meet friends in La Jolla. While the others were touring Old Town, he took us home. It was very kind and thoughtful. Thank you, Frank.

    I have booked this tour for a Friday morning and my flight will be in the evening. I called up few days before the tour to reconfirm and they said it is confirmed and will pick me up from my hotel between 8.30 to 8.45am. On the day, I waited till 8.45am and I called the tour directly to make sure they dont miss me and the operator said they are coming and will be there in 1 min (all of us know if the operator say one minute, it will usually take like 15min). So I waited for like 15 minutes and start calling the tour again, it kept went into voicemail. Waited and called for another 10minutes, finally my call is direct pick up instead of going into voicemail and the operator put me on hold after verification to call the tour bus. Few minutes later, the call just hung up. I called again and the operator said the bus didnt pick up the call and he is not sure what's going on with mad tune.i am supposed to be the mad one not the operator! He said he can put me into the afternoon tour but I have to leave in the afternoon so he said he will do a refund. Till now, I haven't receive any amount yet. So total to wait for the tour to come pick me up, I wasted an hour to wait them and nothing happened. This is so terrible, worse tour i booked so far.

  • 17-Sep-2019 was a nice cool San Diego day. We planned our day around this tour and 20 minutes prior to the departure time they called to state the minimum number of customers was not met and the tour was canceled. I had to request a refund they did not initiate it! Would not have been bad if we did not drive 2 hours from LA to get there or if they called us the day prior even so we could plan an alternate event. Very poor customer service.

    The tour consists of long drives between areas of interest and being dropped off for 20 minutes at each location. The driver did not guide us or participate at the stops. While traveling she pointed out things in the distance, but without context. I discourage anyone from taking this tour.
