  • Our hotel was not on the drop-down list so I called the number provided and found out they would indeed come by our hotel on the bay and pick us up and gave us the time frame. Frank was there exactly on time in a van. Our small group of 5 were shown many, many sites around San Diego. Over the Coronado Bridge for a driving tour then a stop at the beautiful Coronado Hotel. Next we traveled to LaJolla for an up-close view of sea lions lazing on the beach and most beautiful Mt. Soledad Veteran's monument. Finally Old Town. A beautiful, well rounded 4-hr. tour with lots of time to get off for photos and browsing along the way. Well worth the 48.

  • First of all we booked this tour through Viator and the conformation said that we would be picked up from our hotel. We decided to confirm this with the tour company. We call the tour company twice and leave messages and never get a call back. Finally late in the evening the day before we were scheduled for the 9:30 am tour they call to tell us that our tour wasnt going and that we would have to take the 2:30 tour or take a refund. We choose to reschedule and at that time we ask about the pick up and they told us that our hotel wasnt a pick up location and we would need to find our own transportation tothere location. When we got to the location I mentioned this to the man at the desk and all he would do is say that one of the other employees doesnt like to return calls. Anyway the tour was really nice the guide was great but be very careful with the office help at booking. These people dont seem to be very responsible or responsive to there coustermers. I would give the tour and the guide 5 stars but the booking part 1star they need some help

  • Very good tour. Our guide had many interesting and relevant historical stories to share with us.

  • The San Diego tour was incredible! Our tour guide Al was very knowledgeable and entertaining! My husband and I were able to view amazing sites such as the San Diego skyline, beaches, and museums! Thanks for an amazing time!

  • Our morning tour was good and our travel guide was very interesting and informative. He drove us to a variety of places. San Diego is a beautiful city and I hope to go back one day for a much longer tour.

  • Nice tour we saw a variety of sites in and around the city. I plan to visit these sites on my own in the future.

  • This tour was ok but I actually think I may have enjoyed doing a different hop on hop off tour a little more.

  • This tour covered so many places and our guide was great.

  • The tour was amazing. Great overview of San Diego and La Jolla. Would highly recommend this tour. The guide was knowledgable and had a great sense of humor.

  • The tour guide was a very nice man and drove us to the specified highlights of the area. He was not particularly knowledgeable, but we were grateful to see the sights. Suggest that you book for an afternoon tour, NOT the morning! When we called to confirm our tour, we were then informed that they did not have enough people for the 9 am tour and may need to cancel on us at the last minute. They found space for us the day before our tour date with a larger family, who had booked for the 2 pm tour. Be forewarned that they may indeed cancel see their fine print, in which case you will need to find an alternative at the last moment or, as seriously mentioned as an option by the booking agent, pay for an additional 3 people to run our tour. If other tours are available for San Diego, you might be better using another company...
