    It is a nice tour - gives you a taste of the various areas and then you can return to the one you liked. The tour gives you a bit of time in each area. I particularly like La Jolla area. The driver was very knowledgeable of the different areas. This is a worthwhile trip.

    Susie was great! Tour coverage was exhaustive. For a first time visitors, my husband and I were delighted to have learned much about San Diego.

    Our driver was terrific, knowledgeable, and interesting character. Learned a lot and got some good tips on dining. Recommend it for anyone new to San Diego.

    Cancelled my afternoon trip less than 24 hours before. No excuse given but probably lack of numbers but they should still honour bookings. I had it booked for months. Had booked a fly in fly out for same day. They asked me to join the morning trip instead but I wasn't going to be in San Diego until midday.

    Why book with this mob if your trip isn't guaranteed? Use the hop on hop off Red Bus instead.

    Not impressed, the driver was late and the tour was cut short because he had to be somewhere else. The commentary was not well done.

    We enjoyed the City Bus Tour very much the same day we arrived just before lunch time from Canada.
    The stops were great to see the seals at the beach, the flowers and palm trees, etc.
    Never having been in San Diego before it was a pleasant overview of the city before staying for 3 days.
    We returned to Balboa Park twice having stopped there on the tour to see it more in depth and with a family member. The Restaurant there served very delicious meals and lovely atmosphere.

    The guide, Anna, was polite and seemed to know her way around San Diego. I knew it had stops but I thought we would learn more about the stops.

  • 03-Jul-2019

    Tour guide Anna was super friendly and informed. Really enjoyed it. Got so much in in such a short time. Loved the sea lions at La Jolla and the white sparkly sand at Coronado Island beach.
