  • 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...

  • I called the tour company as instructed 2 days prior to the scheduled tour. We waited outside the designated hotel and the van was a no-show so I called to find out the status. The lady asked if we could go the next day because she didn't know if a driver was available. We couldn't go any other day which is why I specifically chose this date/time to go. I didn't get any kind of apology or explanation why they forgot my reservation. She called back and said a driver would be there in 10 minutes to pick us up. So while Frank gave a very nice tour, the trip for my family started 25-30 minutes later than the rest of the folks on the van. So, be cautious with this tour group when booking a trip. I'm only giving this two stars-mostly for the cold response from the office staff and very little attentiveness to customer service. Otherwise, if you book this trip- ask for Frank as your guide.

  • Great trip - very friendly people !

  • Although it worked out, there was confusion prior to and during the tour confirmation process about being returned to our hotel after the additional excursion as stated on the website.Prior to the tour I had to escalate to Viator that the local tour company was not aware of or honoring the website content about returning us to our hotel. I was told we would be returned. However when we got on the tour the driver was unaware that he was to pick us up after the excursion for return to hotel and we had to escalate again. There needs to be better communication and/or removal from the website the verbiage about return to hotel after the additional excursion.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • I had a wonderful 4 hour with the very informative, professional and entertaining tour guide, Atala Gonzales. She provided personal tidbits throughout the tour which made it more personable since she is a lifelong resident of the San Diego area. I recommend this tour to any one visiting San Diego for the first time and if possible, ask for the tour with Ms. Gonzales.

  • Great overview of all of the highlights. Really appreciated the small size comfortable van and the commentary provided by Larry.

  • Excellent, leisurely, interesting, and surprisingly thorough tour! We took the tour last Tuesday in the afternoon. Our tour guide Frank was incredibly knowledgeable, shared a lot of fun facts and kept the tour from seeming like a rushed affair. We covered so much in 4 hours. San Diego has a lot of attractions relatively close together so there was plenty of time for some wandering in Balboa Park and Old Town. The transport was clean and comfortable and traffic for the afternoon tour was no issue. We highly recommend the tour and hope you get Frank as your guide!
