  • Our tour guide was good and helpful but we have serious questions on whether or not the tour bus driver passed his driving test....

  • I really enjoyed the tour

  • Good tour and worth the money paid

    Tour guide excellent

  • The tour was excellent. The driver and tour guide was excellent. We enjoyed everything that we saw on this trip. I highly recommend this tour

  • 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.

  • Not me

  • Great trip. San Diego is lovely!

  • out of our 3 tours in Los Angeles, this was the most expensive and the worst of the tours. We were three elderly guests, the tour guide told us that he did not make a lot of money and that he would appreciate a tip but that we were not to tell anyone. Then he took us to a navel ship but he had not arranged for parking and just dropped us off in front of the place to go see it. However, since the guide was not with us, we were not allowed in. We lost over an hour just walking around trying to find our guide to pick us up. Lastly, he kept rushing us through the remainder of the things he supposedly wanted us to see and he would add that if we really wanted to see it, we could do it on our own time!! I would NOT recommend this tour AT ALL. Waste of money

  • A marvellous trip, full of history and views of a lovely section of California.

  • Great drive and commentary by Giovanni!
