    The traffic form/to LA / San Diego is very heavy, so expect to spend 6-7 hours in the wan. I liked la Jolla and Coronado island visits but I would say I didn't saw lot of San Diego... I miss the downtown and the visit to the city itself. I will suggest to AVOID the old Town San Diego State Historic Park, it's a fake Mexican village, no atmosphere, only a waste of time. Local operator very good and they run small group tour :-) (we were 4)

    I paid a lot of money for a tour, but the tour microphone did not work...
    It was not a pleasant experience.

    I had a great day in San Diego. I was alone with the driver and the guide but I am glad they did not cancel. It was very fun. They were professional and nice. Worth the money. Thank you very much

    This trip was our first to the west side of the country and it was amazing. The San Diego trip was by far the best one for both of us and we had an amazing time. I do not remember the tour guide name we went 2017 May but he was the best. He was very knowledgeable and funny and courteous. We really enjoyed it. And the people who were with us some people came all the way from South Africa and England were very funny and welcoming towards each other. We highly recommend this trip out to San Diego from LA area

    A very pleasant day trip to San Diego in a comfortable vehicle. Jacob was a superb guide and driver. San Diego is a lovely city so well worth the few hours on the freeway to get there and back. The itinerary covers a few of the city's key sights in the time available so met my expectations of what's reasonable in a day trip.
